    I bought a Katadyn Vario off of Amazon on March 30th, 2011 for $73.84. Today that same unit is $89.90. The Hiker Pro has gone up just about the same amount over the last few days. For those that don't have one, I think it would be wise to pick one or two up while there are still some available.

    Amazon has it on sale for $205.70 + free shipping. This is the best price I have ever seen on the king of microfilters. It's a no brainer for the 13,000 gallons of filtration capacity and a 20-year warranty for a fine Swiss made product. The picture shows black but it's actually blue...

    Alright, we all know to have a water filter and iodine tabs in our bobs to make water safe to drink...but something struck me last night and was hoping to get your input. Water in an urban area is VERY different than water you would find on the trail or in the bush. Depending on the source...

    I've been googling all the water filters on the web and had a hard time deciding which one is best. I ended up getting two of them! One is a gravity fed filter that filters out most of the usual stuff, giardia et al, and has a 1500 liter capacity on one filter. It doesn't involve pumping, but...
