Why Water Filtration Is Important
The World Health Organization (WHO) attributes 80 percent of all travel diseases to contaminated drinking water. Drinking water contains three groups of pathogenic microorganisms: viruses, such as hepatitis A, Norwalk virus, or poliovirus; bacteria, like e-coli, salmonella, and cholera; and protozoans, such as giardia and cryptosporidium. Tap water and ice cubes are usually the culprits when traveling, but even bottled water can be questionable. The backcountry is also a source of waterborne illness. A pristine stream may be safe one day and contaminated the next, as microorganisms stemming from human and animal waste are typically spread by rain and runoff. As a result, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends treating water from every source in the backcountry.

How about longevity of use?!?
What about weight? Want something lightweight for your camping gear, B.O.B or pack? Pounds equals pain right!?
What about quality and durability? Would you like a lifetime warranty that product?
Well thank Katadyn(again) for this little number!!
The Pocket is world renown for it's 5 star ratings across the board. This thing is an absolute beast when it comes to field filtration!!
So is this thing expensive? Not in my book... you don't wanna mess around when it comes to the second most important thing you, your children, or your pets might need. Just my opinion.
*Make sure you fully understand the use, cleaning and packing procedures before taking it out to use in the field the first time.
There are some less expensive alternatives but I am unwilling to risk it for my #1 preparedness priority. I like the idea of life straws but it seems more convenient to me to be able to pump for a few minutes and have a few liters of drinking water wherever I want to take it. Plus this has a much longer lifespan.
Life Straw is compact, lightweight, and inexpensive, good for survival.
Sawyer is a good bang for the buck
Lifesaver Bottle filters out viruses as well, bit bulky and slow flowing, little pricey.
Katadyn Pocket Filter really is quality, good flow, simple and easy to fill up your water containers.
-It is expensive, but you are getting your hard earned cash out of it, because this filter is built strong, comes with a 20yr warranty, and water is one of the necessities needed to survive, why go cheap on your own safety and well being? It is a little heavy for a filter, but then again, when you really need water, are you going to trust your $20 plastic filter? Or are you going to trust you expensive aluminum filter. Ill carry the extra 1lb.
The plastic body leaves me a little hesitant to state it feels solid, but it truly does regardless of the flex when pumping water. The design makes it seem relatively simple to replace the plastic part if it ever were broken, but i wouldn't go out of my way to try it. The actual internal mechanism is quite solid.
It is a little heavy, but to be expected from a mostly metal filter that feels as reliable as this one.

My only disappointment was that it didn’t clip onto my hydra pack very well. However I then saw amazon also carries a carbon filter which has an adapter, so I bought that and now this filter fits well and seems perfect to me
Versatile, as it does not require you to have a nalgene bottle to use it; any container will work.
