I have a Katadyn Vario that has leaked from day one. It leaks where the head attaches to the body.
Looking at the filter, exactly how is the water supposed to go from the ceramic pre-filter to the main filter? The top of the main filter only has like 1/16 inch around it that water can cycle...
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.
What would be a good portable water filter to invest in? I want something that will still be usable many years from now (in case I don't need to use it for a long time).
I like the X-Pack:
#1 If I use the Katadyn Vario Microfilter do I just put the filtered water into my canteen and then be able to drink it or do I still need to use some type of "Purification Tablets"?
#2 If I just use the "Aquamira" water filter bottle do I still need to Purify the water in some other way?

KATADYN Vario Microfilter
Will this make sea water/ salt water okay to drink? If I pull water out of a creek and use this do I need to do anything else to the water? Is some other type of purification a better option for creek water?
