Great product. Extremely compact and easy to use. This is the gold standard - worth the extra money.

Two suggestions:
1. Make sure you know exactly which hoses go where before you start attaching them. They can be very difficult to remove once you put them on.
2. BE SURE to use the silicone lubricant when attaching the hoses. I tried to put one on without it and it was 10x harder to connect.

I'm the quartermaster of a Boy Scout troop and we've taken several of these on backpacking trips where several of them broke. The problem is the hose coupling at the inlet of the pump. I've had two break off and one simply pop out. While the breakages may have been from careless usage, the coupling sticks out far enough to sustain damage too easily. On the one where the coupling actually came loose from the pump and popped out, Katadyn does not recommend that glue be used to re-affix it because the glue you use might not be food grade. In their manufacturing process, they weld this part in. Well, since the coupling came out when it's supposed to be permanently attached, wouldn't you think it is covered under the warranty? It is, but only for 90 days. We were out of luck.
Additionally, we've had filters that have clogged after two uses and one broken handle.
The Hiker Pro is NOT reliable.
During those same trips where we had problems with the Katadyns, some of the Scouts brought MSR water filters. They held up much better with no breakages and their ceramic filter elements can be scrubbed clean when they get clogged. Not so with the Katadyn pleated filter elements.

The product worked well when I first used it on a 3 day hiking trip. Unfortunately, a small piece broke on the second day. Another guy I was with had a filter as well (the same model) so my broken filter didn't cause a problem with our hiking trip.

When I got back, I called Katadyn about the broken filter. In less then a minute on the phone, they agreed to send me a new housing case for the filter. Katadyn's service was awesome! I haven't got a chance to use the product again.

I used this for a recent mountain climbing trip and I worked perfect. The water coming out of the lake and rivers tasted great.

The only thing I would suggest to improve the product would be some sort of rubber washer or seal of some kind for the bottle topper part so that it's not just loose and dangling around the top of a bottle when it's filling. Because you'll have one hand on the unit and the other hand on the pump when using it so you need something to hold the topper part to the bottle you're filling. You could just put the hose directly into the bottle or whatever though without that part if you need.

Another thing I couldn't really figure out how to do was get the rest of the water in the pump out before sealing it all back up in the bag. I tried upside down pumping (even though I think I read somewhere not to do that). It seemed like the handle didn't want to close all the way before it was empty of water and then later on while hiking any leftover water inside it managed to leak out and get stuff in my bag wet. Maybe I just needed to keep pumping air for a while or something but if there was some sort of purge valve that would have been good for the last little bit.

It's a great product though. A literal life saver when water is too hard to carry with your already 50 pound backpack. I highly recommend it.

Have used this camping and when travelling abroad in places where the water quality is suspect. Works well, easy to pack and carry. Bring extra plastic bags for keeping hoses in, so they don't cross-contaminate.

Great product. Was not sure I would like the fast connect feature, but having used it several times now: great! Although they needed one more connector to be able to fully fast clip the various hoses and your hydration bladder.

The pump speed of this compared to the MSR is fantastic, I was doing 3 quarts compared to 1 on the last outing. The only down side is the replacement cartridges. Mine is still new, but we were on a weeklong last year and my buddy's Katadyne ran out of steam mid trip (he had been using that filter for a long time), where the MSR kept going.

I recommend this product, just need to keep track of how long you have been using the filter.

This is literally the best filter I've ever used. I've tried them all, but for ease of use, quality of water (and taste), longevity, and pack-ability, this is the best, hands down. It filters water *fast* and with very little effort. The pump handle is comfortable and slides easily. Every time I use it, I'm amazed at how fast it moves water through it. If you're on the go (Hiking, 4x4'ing, Adventure Biking etc) and need to stop and refill, it's perfect. For camping situations where you're going to be stationary for a while, one of the gravity fed bags might be a better option (I have both and use them for these purposes).

Tip: If the pump handle becomes difficult to push/pull, check the filter on the end of the "input" line. (I cover it with a coffee filter and rubber band to keep silt from entering the line while using). If it's the pump handle itself, simply remove and grease it with the food grade silicone (that's included in the package).
