The Katadyn Hiker is a newer, smaller, portable water filter
available nowadays. It is one of the lightest on the market and best for
all kinds of travel as it fits in any backpack or travel bag, and takes
up only minimal space in your bag.
We all know that safe drinking water is a necessity, whether on a
camping or hiking trip. Using a water filter can decrease your odds of
acquiring unwanted illnesses. A portable unit is a great choice for an
all around filtering use. Standard filters can physically remove
protozoa and bacteria, while a more advanced unit can also sort out
viruses. Both units are outfitted with basic activated carbon cartridge
that can also eliminate the water of pesticides, chlorine, awful tastes,
as well as other organic and inorganic matters.
The Katadyn Hiker is a simple to use unit. To work the unit simply
attach the hoses, input hose to the bottom of the unit, the output hose
to the top of the unit. Place the hose into the water making sure to not
put the input hose on the bottom where sediment can be sucked up into
the unit. Pump the unit a few times to flush the system. Once the system
is flushed put the output hose into the container of choice. Pump the
handle until the container is full. Empty the unit once you are
The Katadyn Hiker includes a field serviceable filtering unit, which is
covered in a protective membrane. This protective membrane prevents the
main filtering system from getting clogged by substances. This membrane
provides easy cleaning and low maintenance. Whenever the unit gets hard
to pump, try to swish the membrane in the water to clean.
While you might consider the Katadyn Filter to be a little expensive,
running from $65 to $85 ot saves a lot of money and energy once you
consider that one filter in this unit will filter around two hundred
gallons. Plus, when you are considering that this unit is light weight
and easily carried in a backpack. Two hundred gallons are impossible to
take on the trail with you. The unit has little waste, only the water
filter when it has to be replaced, which will happen eventually. This
makes the unit very eco-friendly, no plastic bottles to throw away in
landfills to rot.
If you are looking for a great camping water filter you can pick up and
start using right away on your next camping trip, I strongly recommend
the Katadyn Hiker.
