Sherri M.wrote a review of Katadyn Base Camp Water Filter on September 9, 2009
I bought this thinking how nice it would be to save time and trouble filtering water when backpacking. I used it and almost immediately the filter flow slowed to mere drops. At that rate, it would take about a day to fill up a 1 gallon water container. We're going to switch back to our regular water pump/filter. The water was clean, alpine, high elevation lakes in the California Sierras so we were starting with gin clear water. They need to re design their idea.
