Weighing 11 ounces and packing down to 6.5" x 3", the Katadyn Hiker Pro microfilter is ideal for backcountry hiking and backpacking. A number of features and accessories enhance the microfilter's efficient performance.
A 0.2 micron pleated AntiClog glass fiber filter removes particulates, bacteria, and cysts, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. A simple-to-use ergonomic pump and a 36" input hose allow the Hiker Pro to easily filter up to 1 quart of water per minute at a rate of 48 strokes per quart. A single filter cartridge can produce up to 200 gallons of drinkable water, depending on the quality of the water source, before needing replaced. An activated carbon core reduces unpleasant tastes and odors, ensuring fresh-tasting water. A cleanable filter protector helps to extend the life of the filter cartridge by shielding it from wear and tear.
Other features include an input hose with modular pre-filter, an output hose with an easy-fill bottle adapter to efficiently pump water into a water bottle (bottle not included), and two Quick Connect fittings and a hydration system connector for easy hose handling and direct filling of hydration systems. An included carry bag has sewn-in field instructions and field tips. A sponge is included for regular cleaning and an included tube of lubricant keeps the microfilter's parts moving smoothly and efficiently.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great Water Filter
Likes: Does what it claims. Like the clear housing, im able see when i need to clean the filter. Quick disconnect valves are very nice. This takes a litltle less effort to pump versus the MSR. Excellent build quality, does not feel cheap at all.
Dislikes: A tiny bit heavy for 1 or 2 people on a hike. But absolutely worth the weight when you have 3+ people on an extended adventure.
- Water filter
Likes: Light and small - easy to use.
