Katadyn Hiker Pro
The field-maintainable Katadyn Hiker PRO water filter is easy to use and includes handy features such as quick-connect fittings to make filtering water a cinch.
For years, the Katadyn Hiker Pro has been the most frequently sold microfilter in the U.S. outdoor market. For the 2012 market launch in Europe, we have packed the formerly gray-blue filter into a trendy black design.
The Hiker Pro is small, weighs a mere 310 grams, and thanks to its large filter area has an outstanding pumping capacity. It reliably eliminates bacteria, cysts, and sediments from water. On trips, its cleanable filter protection feature allows you to easily maintain your filter. The filter protector also perceptibly extends the service life of the 0.3 micron glass fiber filter element.
Its activated carbon filling improves the taste of the water and eliminates odors. Fastening and removing the intake and outlet hoses and using the filter together with a drinking system are child’s play, thanks to convenient quick-action couplings.
