An ideal filtration solution for trail runners, fast packers, and ounce-counting hikers and backpackers, the Katadyn BeFree 1.0L Microfilter marries a microfilter to a flexible drinking flask to provide immediately safe, drinkable water.

Eliminating the need for hoses or separate containers, the system integrates a 0.1 micron microfilter directly into the cap to remove bacteria and cysts, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. No pumping is required and there's no need to allow time for purification to occur. Simply remove the cap and dip the flexible, BPA-free 1.0L Hydrapak Flask into your water source, screw on the cap, squeeze the bottle, and drink from the “stay clean” nozzle. The filter’s hollow fiber EZ-Clean Membrane can be easily cleaned at home without the need for backflushing, brushes, or other cleaning tools.

The collapsible design of the drinking flask makes the microfilter perfectly suited for the pockets on standard backpacks, running vests, or even cycling jerseys and the entire system weighs in at just 2 ounces! A wide mouth opening on the flask makes it easy to fill, empty, and clean.

Note: The EZ-Clean Membrane has a capacity of up to 1,000 liters, depending on water quality and the EZ-Clean Membrane Replacement Element (sold separately) can be purchased to extend the life of the system beyond that point.

Likes: Lightweight, small. A nice alternative to Sawyer squeeze.

Dislikes: None at this point.

Great filter
Reviewed by Maria W. - April 23, 2018

Likes: Flow rate is excellent. I'll say this - this past weekend I got water from a source where it was completely brown in the bag. After shaking it and filtering it into my water bottle it was crystal clear.

Dislikes: Nothing.

Nice alternative to the Sawyer mini
Reviewed by Charles - April 4, 2018

Likes: Convenient. Fast flow. I use this as a primary filter and keep the Sawyer mini as a backup.

Dislikes: You have to be very careful with the fibres in the filter.
