    Don't work for your water.

    When you're sick of pumping and pumping and pumping to get fresh water in the backcountry, it may be time to switch to the Katadyn BeFree 3L Filtration System.

Simply fill it, hang it from its carry loop, and let the hollow fiber filter clean out bacteria and protozoa at an impressive rate of two liters per minute while you pack up camp and get ready to hike.

    Great Product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is the water filtration to have. So much easier than the squeeze filtration systems. I was the only member of the last backpacking trip that had this Katadyn, other guys had the squeeze bags. We ended up using the squeeze bags as storage and just hung the katadyn on a tree and refilled it when it was complete.
    Well worth the extra dollars.

    Great product, poor packaging

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The only reason this product is dinged is because Katadyn used a giant box for this product, which could easily been packaged in a much smaller container.
    Great product. Does the job. Packs down to a very small and manageable size.
    Don't forget to pack a strap to adjust the height. I found it best to adjust the filter tip to the height of the jug or water bottle being filled.

    Unanswered Question

    Has anyone tried using Nuun or other electrolyte replacement products in the bladder? Does it mess with the filter at all?
