Katadyn Hiker Microfilter
The best I've owned
I've gone through several camping water filters over the years, and this is the best I've owned. I bought a second one for my son who just began backpacking, so that he could skip the frustration of trying cheaper brands. The Katadyn Hiker does a great job. It sets up quickly and fills a jug in a hurry which is a real plus when you're crouched down by a Pacific Northwest stream in the pouring rain.

easy to use and portable
The product is great as advertised. Very lightweight and easily stored inside my backpack for my day hike. I highly recommend this product. Make sure you get the PRO version which comes with the additional accessories.

Hiking Microfilter Must bring along
When I firsted looked at the price of microfilters, I was a bit taken aback. Then I realized, hmmmmm, trip to Doctor, or Hiking Microfilter. Works like a charm, easy to operate, it is rated for 750 liters, and in a week of hiking I probably only made 7 liters, so I can see it lasting for a lifetime at that rate. Make sure you take it apart to dry it out when in storage. Great deal to avoid unknowns in water while hiking, pay for the device or pay the Doctor and have medical complications, easy choice. Lightweight and compact

I had the original PUR hiker (same model) for years. I had a long hiatus from backpacing and a lot of my equipment was lost or damaged. I always had good luck with the original filter and it was easy to use. So, when it came time for a replacement I went straight for the updated version. It performs just as I remembered.

Be safe, what you drink
I like the compact size and the ease of the use, you might think twice about just drinking stream water. Simply and effective!
