I really like the water filter, I am sure this will do just fine when it is time to be used.

My Katadyn Hiker Pro needed a new cartridge; this one is exactly like the original.

I have the old PUR brand hiker pro and this filter the replacement for it. It is used in both Katadyn and older PUR Hiker models.

Overall, I think the quality of Katadyn filter is better than the older PUR brand, but neither of them lasted long. If you do extended backcountry trips, expect it to last about 2 weeks with 4 people using it. I do not trust the durability of ceramic filters so I stick with my trusty old PUR/KATADYN hiker which is easy to repair and rebuild with the kit provided.

This is the third year we've used these replacement filters in the Katadyn Base Camp water filter. The Base Camp is an excellent idea; fill the bag and let gravity do the work.
The filters are advertised as: "Provides up to 200-gallon capacity (depending on water quality)" I'm guessing you'd only get 200-gallons with clean, city tap water.
The past 3 years we've gone into the BWCA with 8 people for 4 days. We bring the Base Camp filter with 2 replacement cartridges. Each cartridge lasts for perhaps 25-30 gallons (~ 10-12 refills of the Base Camp bag). The water in the BWCA generally has a red tint (iron?) and there are always a few microscopic bugs, but I would still hope a filter would last more than 25-30 gallons. I follow all the directions that come with the filter with the hope of extending its life, but it doesn't really help.
I'd give this filter 5 stars if it lasted for just 100 gallons or were half the current price of ~ $33 USD.
On the positive side, the filter works - no one has returned home with a water-borne illness.
P.S. This year, Amazon was the only place we could find these filters. They had been back-ordered (sometimes for several months) at all the local retailers.

Used this on a four-day Appalachian Trail hike, and it worked great. I was with a scout group, and there were two other water filtration products in the group. The Katadyn worked much better than the other two, and we ended up using it to filter water for most of the group. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

This filter will maybe last you for 75 gallons if you are lucky, and that's on the higher end. Knowing this, the price should be half of what it is. If you pay $60-70 to initially buy the filter, you shouldn't have to pay $32 dollars (half the price of the filter) just for a new cartridge that works for less than half its advertised lifespan.

I was using it in seemingly clear brook and stream water, not in mud, so I expect it to last a little longer.

I have found that putting a coffee filter over the inlet tube on the filter will strain out some of the finer particulate, thereby giving you a little more life out of the cartridge. Although, I think that after spending $60 on a portable water filter you should not have to resort to this simply to get more life out of it.

I ordered this to replace a used up filter in a "Pur Hiker" pump. The pump design is the same as the Katadyn Hiker but the issue of brand name interchangeability was a concern. Well, if anyone else was wondering about whether or not this filter will work in your old Pur brand filter/pump - it does. Also the filter element protector screen... thing... seems like an improvement over the OG Pur filters which were pretty good already (many, many gallons of all sorts of Alaskan water filtered with this system; no beaver trots to speak of and we've got lots of big ol gnarly beavers up here).
I only give it a 4 star rating because, well heck, I don't want to just give the fifth one away ...gotta keep 'em trying you know.

What you get in the box - Filter, filter screen, mesh, sponge and silicone. I originally purchased the Katadyn Hiker model so mine did not come with the screen, mesh and sponge. I go out camping/backpacking for a night or two nights max so this model is fine for me. Just a note, after you get back from your backwoods adventure make sure you take the filter out and let it dry. I didn't do this after my first trip out with the HIKER so when I checked it a couple of months later while gearing up for a weekend out I had moldy spots on the filter. NOT COOL but my fault completely. Anyhoo I like it, it does the job but agree with everyone else. The filter should be cheaper considering the amount of water it filters or it should filter more for the same price.

I bought this to replace the filter in our Katadyn Base Camp filter. This a a great filter, but doesn't last for the 500 gallons it is advertized. Perhaps 50 gallons? Katadyn needs to change the label on this so people know what they are getting.

I bought this filter to replace my original filter in the Hiker Pro pump. It looks the same. The only difference with the replacement is that there is now a removable screen that wraps over the new filter (to catch larger particles). My original filter did not have this screen. However, my original filter is 7 yrs old. It still is able to filter water. I've been pretty meticulous about using a coffee filter over the pre-filter in the inlet hose, and after coming home, followed the manufacturer's instructions on post-use care and storage. I've been using this filter in southern California and the Sierras, as well as Hawaii. (total miles hiked with the original filter about 620 miles) I have no issues with this filter. As an aside, if you are in an area where leptospirosis is present, this filter WILL NOT remove the organism. You must use some other filter that can remove it or treat your water with a bleaching solution or iodine.
