Check out this comment from Backpacker Magazine's March 2006 Gear Guide issue: "We sent the Hiker Pro on the trail with testers who swore they'd never give up their ultralight, fuss-free chemicals. Then they tried this glass-fiber filter and rediscovered the sweet taste of mountain streams sans chemical aftertaste." Weight reported dry, without accessories; manufacturer-supplied specifications.
Please note: Katadyn products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Rated4out of5byShoalminerfromGood Product that does the jobUsed on a backpacking trip with our troop and filtered water for most of the people on the trail, worked great, easy to operate, and did what was needed of it.

Rated1out of5byJTCausafromBroke when I needed it the mostI had a sweetwater before this, and had issues with the prefilter clogging. This one didn't have the same prefilter issues; however, the main filter gets clogged pretty easily. Many of the water sources along the AT are shallow and full of silt in the summer which means you have to clean this thing frequently, as in every few days. Mid pump, it started to get a bit stiff because of clogging, and the spout at the bottom broke off rendering the unit useless when I was 16 miles away from my closest clean water source. I had Iodine tablets as a backup, but I would have preferred to have a water pump that doesn't have a known weak point as this one does... Read the reviews, I'm not the first one where the spout has broken off of the pump. Go Sawyer squeeze or chemically treat.

Rated5out of5bycascadehikingfromIt's what you want..I have been wanting a good water filter for years, and after messing around with having to boil or treat water I finally bought this filtration system. I'm extremely pleased at the overall ease of this pump. First I'd like to mention I work in the pharmaceutical industry and know a bit about water filtration. it's the best and safest way to ensure water sterility outside of boiling water, but who wants to get their stove out on a hike or when they're very thirsty? This product works great on the following levels: it is light, it pumps easily (however I've never had to pump out of semi cloudy water), it works great with all the attachments, i.e. the Nalgene mouth so you can go right into your bottle without spills, I have the quick connects to pump right into my 2L Osprey hydration pack. So it's really nice in that you can pump right into your bladder without removing it out of your pack. The only cons are that the sinker in the prefilter (screen) isn't that heavy so in swift moving water it's prone to come up out of the water and the hoses are not that long, but I made extensions with silicon tubing. Also what I do now is fetch water in a Sea-to-Summit collapsible 10L bucket and I allow the water to settle for a few minutes then I pump/filter that water to wherever it needs to go, bottles, bladders and for cooking It's much easier filtering at the camp then in a stream. I will fill all the bladders and bottles in my group when we come to a water source and I've been using this a couple of years. It takes a little bit of maintaining but on long hikes longer than 2 weeks, I will carry a small bottle of bleach and clean my filter and I typically will let it dry in the sun (if there is sun) when I'm not needing it, this isn't needed but I'm a little paranoid about leaving the filter wet for longer than 5 days. I think this is the best filter in the business for the $. I believe 35 pumps is 1 L?

Rated5out of5byTwinkle ToesfromBest!This was a replacement for our old Hiker Pro that lasted through many years of use and abuse. We've used other Katadyn filters and still think this one is the best!

Rated4out of5byRBKfromWorks like a charmWe've been using our Katadyn filter backpacking for several years. It is very easy to use, maintain, and very quick to filter water. It isn't very heavy/bulky and we have been extremely happy with it so far. We have even take it traveling abroad with us (to filter water from our room) but mostly use it on 4-10 day backpacking trips.

Rated4out of5byEschfromWorks as well as anyWeight is really important to me, and I have tried several pumps. The last one I had was the Katadyn Mini which was a complete waist. Clogged way to fast even in decent water sources and was to slow. This is a decent compromise if you are going to go the pump route and still care about weight. I only have 6 days in field with this model, but so far it has functioned well.
