An ideal filtration solution for backpacking or group camping trips, the Katadyn BeFree 3.0L Microfilter is a lightweight, easy-to-use gravity filtration system. It weighs just 4 ounces, packs down small, and filters up to 2 quarts per minute!
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 fill the reservoir, use the integrated handle to hang the reservoir, and draw water from the 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. 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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Easy to use
Likes: Lightweight, wide mouth to gather water with, only one bag and filter piece. Tried it on an overnight trip last week, it worked better than expected. It was easy to collect water and quick in filtering the water. I would recommend this over the 2 bag gravity filters.
Dislikes: Hard to close valve with only one hand when other hand is holding a cup that it is filtering in.
