|The Katadyn Pocket Filter is a durable water
filter with an aluminum shell. The ceramic element in the Katadyn Pocket
Filter will treat up to 13,000 gallons. Compare that to most other
water filters out there and you'll see why Katadyn is one of the most respected
brands in the industry. This ceramic water filter offers 0.2 micron filtration
and a flow rate of up to 1 liter per minute. At 21 oz, the Katadyn Pocket
Filter is a tad heavier than the Pur and the First Need but it's still
quite compact and its rugged aluminum shell means it'll go the long haul.
This is why it's standard issue for international Red Cross field workers.
The Katadyn Pocket Filter will remove all giardia, fungi, parasites, cholera,
typhoid, cryptosporidia, salmonella and other harmful bacteria, parasites,
and germs. This filter will last you a long time if you expect to be in
places where supplies (i.e. replacement filters) are not readily available.
Features a 40" (100 cm) suction hose, fitted with an intake strainer to
eliminate coarse debris. Measures 10" x 2". Comes with a zip up nylon bag.
