I don't know how it was used before it got to me but for 300.00 or whatever i paid at the time, it pisses me off that I got a faulty filter with my unit. I feel lucky I didn't get sick. I haven't used the new filter yet but I assume it should be ok now. I'll test on my next hiking trip.
My wife and I like to hike and camp. As such, we often encounter the need to refresh/refill our camelbacks (water pouches) or water storage apparatuses in very remote places. This product does a great job at delivering a safe feed of water to our bag and water apparatuses. The only down fall is the water transfer is slow and the ceramic filter needs cleaned often (perhaps just a factor of water supply). However, for now, this product fits our every need and is relatively light weight, which is important when hiking long distances.
The only down side that we might face is in the winter months. Logically, this product needs to be kept above freezing at all times or you will risk any moisture left in the filter's pore to freeze, expand, and thus crack your ceramic filter, rendering it useless. As such, perhaps carrying it close to your warm back in a frame-pack while hiking is a great idea, we just have not figured it out a method for camping since you wouldn't want to carrying it on your person at all times. Just a little fuel for thought.
In either case, this product is great for our Spring, Summer, and Fall trips when boiling water for sterilization is not an option. On a side note, though we do trust this filters abilities, we still boil the water when camping via we have the means to easily do so and there is no reason to take a chance in that case. However, for our current needs, this product works great.
We hope this review helps.
But wait. If you really look closely behind the initial sticker shock of the Katadyn, you will see that over its lifetime, it offers by far the best value!!
For it is not just the cost of the unit you have to consider. It is the life of the filter that in the end determines the real cost of ownership. Let's have a closer look at the filter life expectancy
Katadyn Pocket filter - rated for 50,000 L
MSR MiniWorks - rated for 2,000 L
Platypus GravityWorks - rated for 1,500 L
If you equate the MSR and the Platypus to 50,000 L of filtering, you would have to purchase 24 and 32 additional filters respectively.
So after doing some math, it is clear to see that by buying the Katadyn, you pretty much don't have to think about changing the filter. Not to mention, Katadyn is much more durable than both the MSR and Platypus although it is heavier than both of them.
From what I understand, the Katadyn is already in use by the US Military which has strict standards on durability in the field.
Bite the bullet and buy the Katadyn
This is my second Katadyn, and I have used mine in places where I'd have been dead without one. I'm very thankful.
The only folks who won't be flat envious are those who think a lifestraw is an end all solution.
This will give you clean drinking water for life on all seven continents.
