The Katadyn Hiker water filter is ideal for anyone who is planning
on a short trek into the wilderness. You don't have to go hiking to
enjoy the simple ease of this type of filter. While it is compact, light
to carry and over all simple to use there are some draw backs. But the
good can outweigh the bad if you know what you're looking for.Looking
at the positives of the Katadyn Hiker there are many wonderful features
that will allow you to enjoy being outside without having to worry
about clean water. For one thing this particular type of filter is
extremely portable. You can carry it easily on your back without
worrying about it being too heavy a burden. It even comes complete in
its own zippered carrying case so that you can throw it on your back and
wander all over the woods.Another great feature is that the
filter is equipped with a 36" long hose so you can get the already
filtered water out of your container without having to remove your pack.
It really is convenient for you to get a drink while on the move. The
hose comes complete with universal bottle adapter so you don't have to
worry about purchasing a separate bottle that is specially made for this
filter. You can just use what you already have.The Katadyn Hiker
filter does have a couple of small draw backs though. You do have to do
all the work to get the water filtered. You have to pump the filter to
pull the water through. It takes about a minute to filter a liter of
water which is approximately 48 strokes. It can be tiring if you want to
filter a lot of water for several friends.The filter also only
lasts for about 200 gallons of water over the life of the filter. Of
course if you have a lake or river that is really muddy it will wear
down the filter quicker. There are other models that can take a
different type of element that might last longer or have an element
protector so that it will last longer. The filter is field serviceable
but unlike some other filters it isn't as serviceable.If you are
planning on a short excursion, especially if it is just you then the
Katadyn Hiker is a great option to consider investing in.

The Katadyn
Hiker water filter is absolutely one of the best rated water
filters for short trips. It gets great ratings from Backpacker magazine
and is popular amongst the Boy Scouts and seasoned hikers alike.If
you would like to try the next level up, take a look at the Katadyn
Hiker Pro!
