Great water filter for bikepacking and hiking.

The Hiker Pro does exactly what you need it to do, filter water. I have tried various types of filters but they all have their pros and cons. While not the smallest filter out there, it is small enough to put in my backpack or frame bag on my bike. Basically, I can carry one less water bottle and pack the filter in its place and take up about the same amount of space and lighter than a full water bottle. I like that the Pro comes with multiple bottle/bladder attachments. This unit is also very easy to disassemble to clean and dry.

Great little filter

This filter is easy to use and powers through the nastiest water. I especially like the long hoses and the way the pump handle works.

Easy filter

this thing is easy to use and light to pack in and out, I'd definitely recommend it to someone needing an easy solution to a backcountry water filter!

Took to Isle Royale National Park on a 7 day hike. Filters water quick and is compact and light weight.

Classic Water Treatment

We've been using this company since it existed. This is our "go to" water purification setup. Works well for up to 2 people. We have about 12 of these and they all work wonderfully.

Heavy and messy, would not recommend. Use the gravity style filters if at all possible. Too bulky for backpacking. Although it didn’t break it looks flimsy.

Easy, compact, & light

Super easy to use, store, & carry. It's everything you need, and works great for 2 people on backpacking trips in the PNW, where you can oftentimes find a lake or creek.

Excellent quality and weight for the price point.

The hiker pro was recommended to me by a friend. I've had it on 3 back country hunts and multiple hikes and it hasn't failed once. Another hunter was using a MSR and it filtered so slow I was able to fill a 6L bag in more than half the time, plus the Katadyn is lighter. I was able to pull water from even a trickle of a stream. Haven't had an issue with it yet. Great quality, great price, no brainer.

Great Filter

This is an awesome addition to my pack. It works great for filling up my hydro pack with the quik attach that comes with it

I haven't had a chance to use this exact model yet, but made this purchase after borrowing a friend's Katadyn filter on a three day backpacking trip. It was perfect for pumping water for the two of us - lightweight, easy to pack up and find in a backpack and easy to clean. I love the little carrying case it comes with and found pumping four liters of water for us to be accomplished in just a few minutes. Looking forward to getting back out on the trail!
