Rated 5 out of 5 by skedge875 Katydyne water filter Great product! Easy to find at store! OK price. Glad to find it at Dick's because it is located close to home! September 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by WeRecreate NOT AS EXPECTED Water will have after taste. Carbon particle from filter will pass through into your bottle. September 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 559Sold Below expectation Pros: easy to use, fast pumping, and seems to be durable Cons: internal carbon sediments can pass through easily and there is no filter in this system to prevent that from happening. I thought it was a defective unit, exchange it and the same result with the new one. Test it for yourself: filter water into a glass cup and inspect it yourself. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt Great! This is a great product. We spent 6 days in the wilderness with 2 of these filters and 4 people and used it every day. It is the only way to go in my opinion. I've used other products before, but this is the top of the line. Way to go katadyn. If there is any downside it is that I'll probably need to replace the filter after using it so much. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by RogueRiverRuger A MUST HAVE This item is a fantastic add to any outdoor enthusiast arsenal. Have used it a few dozen times and must say, I am impressed. Easy to pack and pays dividends when needed. Two thumbs up to Katadyn for a well made system. December 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by RLJohnson 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. January 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Em Love! Very easy to assemble and use. Definitely lightweight. I couldn't be happier! October 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Csar 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. September 10, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slug 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 August 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian Backwoods Essentials 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. July 26, 2012
