Not just your casual weekend camping water filter—the heavy duty Katadyn Pocket Water Filter was made for frequent use on expeditions. It’s the only filter that comes with a 20 year warranty.
With a weight of 20 ounces we don’t recommend this as a lightweight backpacking or bug out bag item, but rather a long lasting filter for your family, small groups, or for your vehicle bug out bag where weight is not a concern.
- Filter Size: The Katadyn Pocket uses a cleanable 0.2 micron ceramic filter.
- Removal Rates: 1 liter per minute
- Capacity: 13,000 gallons or 50,000 liters
- Length: 10 x 2.4 inches
- Removes: The silver impregnated ceramic element is effective against bacteria and protozoa.
- Legendary Status: This filter is extremely well reviewed by survival enthusiasts.
Note: if you’re looking for something lighter and less expensive we highly recommend the “Sawyer Mini” Personal Water Filter.
FAQ: “Do filters remove viruses?”
It’s important to note that most water filters such as this one do not remove viruses, chemicals or dissolved solids. As a rule of thumb, the safest way to treat water for those contaminants is to boil it. Check out our “cookware” items.
