With its compact size, light weight, and simple-to-use design, the Katadyn Hiker microfilter is an ideal choice for back country hiking, camping and backpacking. Weighing only 11 oz. and measuring a mere 6.5" x 3", the Hiker takes up very little room in your pack and does its job quickly and efficiently.
The Hiker's 0.3 micron pleated AntiClog glass fiber filter removes particulates, bacteria and cysts, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. The Hiker can produce up to 200 gallons of drinkable water, depending on the quality of the water source, before a replacement filter is required. An activated carbon core reduces unpleasant tastes and odors, ensuring fresh-tasting water.
A simple-to-use ergonomic pump and a 36" input hose allow the Hiker to easily filter up to 1 quart of water per minute at a rate of 48 strokes per quart.
The Hiker includes an input hose with modular pre-filter and an output hose with an easy-fill bottle adapter to efficiently pump water into your water bottle. A deluxe carry bag has sewn-in field instructions and field tips. The Hiker also comes with a tube of silicon lubricant to keep parts moving smoothly and efficiently.
