The Katadyne is one of the best in the world but it is also very expensive. If money is not a limiting factor then I would buy the Katadyn, however if you are on a budget then I would buy the MSR. I have both and used both - they both get the job done. Be sure if you buy the Katadyn you buy an extra element since they are ceramic and can break if dropped.

FWIW, I've used my MSR Miniworks for around 10 years filtering over 200 liters each year. The ceramic filter is just now getting close to needing replacement.

Katadyn for sure. What is it for though? MSR has some nice camping ones but katadyn is just more reliable. go to for good deals.
