    Can I connect the Katadyn bottle adapter with activated carbon to the Katadyn BeFree water filter? Or is there a high quality lightweight water filter, that I can refill with cheap activated carbon?

    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...

    What is a good water filter upgrade from the katadyn hiker? Was out on a hiking trip today doing some videos and taking pictures for reviews. Stopped for lunch next to a creek. Got out my katadyn hiker and was filtering water from a creek. I thought to myself, there must be something faster...

    So I have a survival bag for camping, 4x4'ing, fishing, hiking, exploring, natural disaster, etc. and I really think it needs a revamp. I have actually lost a few things too or had things removed or even stolen. I'm approaching this in groups to make it easier and I'm doing the water group now...

    I am just getting into hiking and I am looking at buying the Katadyn Hiker Pro. And was wondering just how good they are. For instance; I live just north of Toronto in a medium sized town of about 100, 000. There is a river that runs right through it that get a lot of street run off and yard...

    Katadyne has a filter which claims about 13,000 gallons (depending on the water quality), Berkeley has filters that many swear by (though they had problems, not sure if they have been solved) and now I recently read on here about Sawyer filters (with backflushing claim they can filter 1 million...

    Would this filter make pond water or creek water safe to drink if shtf and stored water supply ran out ? What do you all suggest

    No Berkey because I am in Kalifornia and they won't allow it in the state due to government regulations:mad: I have hundreds of gallons of rainwater stored in food grade containers and would like to have a filter system that I can use in case I need to make this water drinkable. Thoughts...

    Just bought a Hiker PRO.($75) I think I like it, got a seperate carbon cartridge also( free from friend). But everybody I talk to says the MSR is better, they look kind a brittle to me, maybe it's the transparency of them. So whats the best out there for $200 ? I could use this one for a...

    If this is the not the right area, please let me know or feel free to move it. I am in the market for a new water filter and while Berkey are nice, they are out of my price range. I did find this a local outdoor shop and thought it seemed alright for mass cleansing of water. Also, what do folks...

    I just received the new price list for Katadyn products for 2012. Prices are going up on many of their popular water filters. Since I began selling Katadyn products early this year, the list price of the Pocket microfilter has risen from $269.95 to $349.95. In 2012 it will rise again to $369.95...

    Took it out for a little test and was impressed. Took some creek water and about 60 seconds to make great water. Filter is supposed to do 200-250 gallons depending on what you start with.

    I've looked at the Katadyn water purifiers and have been thinking about getting one for our hiking trips; but for a SHTF situation here in FL, there is a lot of access to "backwater" canals. These canals open up into the gulf (or atlantic depending what coast you are on) and are slightly...

    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.

    Hi Guys I have been humming and hawing over which water filter to buy. I think that a serious "delux" travel model is the "Katadyn Pocket" The specs states that it filters down to 0.2 microns and will filter 13,000 gal (50,000 L) which is very impressive. It's price is around $300 and it...

    I've been searching here with the sites search feature and I also did a google search of the site to find some info on the top units out there but didn't find what I was looking for or anything relatively current. So please feel free to shoot me some links. I want something for SHTF, I have a...
