Product details

Katadyn's Hiker Filter Pur is made for backpackers and long-day hikers who need a lightweight and compact, yet heavy-duty option to turn murky streams and lakes into safe drinking water. At 11.7oz, it’s light for its category and includes a pre-filter at the hose inlet to remove larger particles and prolong the life of the main filter.

Key Features:

  • 1.5L / Minute – Quick output from the filter allows you to fill your water bottles and reservoirs without having to spend an eternity at your water source.

  • Pleated Filter – The shape of the filter increases surface area to better clean muddy or silty water.

  • Activated-Carbon Core – The core of the filter improves the taste of the water by absorbing pesticides and chemicals.

A lightweight, easy to use microfilter, which is ideal for backpacking, thru-hiking, or other backcountry adventures! Every backpacker should have a good water filter and this could be the one for you - it's one of the best selling microfilters in the US! One of the best features on this filter is the flow rate, it takes roughly 48 strokes/min to fill a 1L bottle which is pretty impressive. Get pumping and enjoy fresh-tasting, safe, clean water in no time.

High efficiency and capacity. Filter works for several seasons before it even starts to slow down. Great for filling hydration bladders and water bottles!

Getting more water without having to backwash the filter often. It’s reliable and efficient. Also, the filter is replaceable, making it more affordable in the long run despite being pricier than squeeze filters.
