Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
Save a quick buck on a cheeper solution, risk your health and safety with less capable products, or purchase a waranteed item that is tested and utilized by the life-saving organizations of the world?
I don't like chintzy things. If I buy something it needs to last. The Katadyn is not only made and waranteed to last, but it does so in a way that also provides the consumer with almost a lifetime of use from a single filter (depending on usage patterns). For $100 more than the next guy is asking you're geting 8 times the volume of safe, drinkable water, from a single filter.
My biggest concern in Iraq was the supply of safe water on longer missions, or in the event of an emergency. We're well provided out there with the necessities, but it is nice to be prepaired. Things happen. What I had in my pack was something that on more than one occassion I was able to use in the Tigris, at some of the waddis and some of the rainwater runnoffs for longer missions. The Tigris is higly polluted from factory and farm runoff...among other things, but I was able to fill a camelback without an ounce of concern for my health.
There's a learning curve to using the device, and there are videos showing proper techniques. Cross contamination is the name of the game...keeping the unfiltered elements away from the filtered ones. Katadyn makes a point of this in the manual, and provides a carry case that aids in seperating the components. Thje device is solid and sturdy. The handle and end caps are metal and designed to be used by positing the filter upright on a solid surface. Care and maintenance is easy, and as long as you follow the directions to avoid cross contamination you will continue to pump thousands of liters of safe drinking water.
If you're worried about the price, consider what you are buying. A life saving product needs to last, even if it's only for a hobby. You are much more likely to misuse a cheaper product by trying to filter sketchy water beyond the filter's capacity.. and unfortunately the only way you will know is when you become ill. The Katadyn has a massive filter life, along with a handy gauge to let you know when it's time to replace the filter (although few will ever need to do this unless they're working for one of the humanitarian organizations).
It's sturdy, it's tough, it's made by people who understand that safety should not be compromised for a few dollars or ease of use. If you buy a Katadyn, you're buying quality and ease of mind.
I HIGHLY reccomend this product to all readers of this review.
As a paramedic and ex combat medic, throw in some recent trips to suspect areas. Having treated many people with stomach cramps to ...well... I wont go into it here, lets just say you dont want it. Water! quality water. I always have clean water. Whilst going through some countries, I found I was the only one not getting sick. My trick is treated even bottled water the same as swamp water (Almost) you just never know whose hands or where that bottle has been.
Okay. I wanted a top of the range product, hard wearing and just works! i was looking for tough and field cleanable. I was bored so I googled, youtubed and read articles. There was one clear winner with no close second.
Some of the articles on you tube are well done and that sold me.
I live in Australia, checked for the best price and, you know what! Amazon was not only the best price, the delivery beat my other US orders by a week.
Price, quality, reliability, speed of delivery Amazon won. Even Ebay was not even close, although i did see a fake unit out of Korea.
I spent 8 hours on this product, because, I am worth the effort and didnt want to get sick and spoil a trip just because I was drinking suspect water. Even clear water can make you very sick.
I hope my effort in writing this will save others time, money and effort. I am very happy with this product and service
