Product Highlights

Katadyn's Endurance Series water filters are designed to provide maximum water capacity and high performance even under the most rigorous conditions. Built to last, the Katadyn Pocket is the top-of-the-line offering in the Endurance Series. Katadyn believes the Pocket is simply the longest-lasting and most durable microfilter available today and stands behind their claim by offering a lifetime warranty on the Pocket.

A 0.2 micron ceramic filter, the key to the Pocket's extended life and durability, is effective against bacteria and cysts, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. The Pocket can produce an astounding 13,000 gallons of drinkable water, depending on the quality of the water source, before filter replacement is required! A rugged aluminum exterior protects the filter from breakage and freezing, rendering the Pocket almost indestructible. The filter can be removed and cleaned to combat bacterial growth.

A simple-to-use ergonomic pump allows the Pocket to easily filter up to 1 quart of water per minute.

The Pocket includes an input hose with modular pre-filter, an output hose with a universal bottle clip, a measuring gauge to monitor the life of the filter, and a hydration system connector. A deluxe carry bag has sewn-in field instructions and field tips. The Pocket also comes with a tube of silicon lubricant to keep parts moving smoothly and efficiently. Two abrasive cleaning pads are included for regular cleaning of the Pocket.

  • Tony K. El Paso TX

    Likes: The best of its kind that I have found out there. I have used this in the field and have included it my emergency prep equipment proving to be incredibly sturdy and predictable.

    Dislikes: On the heavy side when you are counting ounces on a hike. Also was surprised how expensive this product was compared to the competition.

  • Troy W. Saint Johns FL

    Likes: Really nice filter. Very high quality and works great.

    Dislikes: A little on the heavy side but I'd rather carry a little extra weight and know I have a bulletproof, extremely reliable filter.

  • Jeff O. Crestwood KY

    Likes: Wonderful. I took this on a 50 miler and it was fast and did everything I needed it to do. I also liked how it came with spare parts insteaed of having to order them if something broke.

    Dislikes: I wish the outlet hoses where slightly longer.
