Katadyn Base Camp Water Filter

Convenience is everything when family camping at the beach, or rafting for days down the Colorado River. The Katadyn Base Camp Water Filter offers an accessible way to treat large volumes of water. No pumping is required. Just fill the water bag and hang; gravity is your friend. The Base Camp Filter uses the cleanable Hiker PRO cartridge, which contains a pleated glass fiber element that removes bacteria, protozoa and cysts from the drinking water.

  • AntiClog Technology: 129 square inches of pleated 0.3 micron glass fiber media gives higher water output, and less frequent cleaning
  • Pleated glass fiber element removes bacteria, protozoa and cysts from the drinking water; including Salmonella, Colibacillosis, Vibrio cholera, Amoeba, Schistosoma (Bilharziasis), Giardia, Cryptosporidium
  • Active Carbon Core: reduces chemicals, pesticides, unpleasant tastes, and odor from water
  • Output: filters 16 oz. (0.5 liters) per minute
  • Cartridge Capacity: 200 gallons (750 liters) depending on water quality (use of filter protector will extend cartridge life)

Greatly improved over Katadyn pumps
Worn out two Katadyn Pro Hiker filter pumps. Both sprung leaks at the plastic welds at pump outlet. This gravity filter takes the work out of filtering. It is compact and light (packs to the same size as a pump). We've all got better things to do around camp than pump water.

Awesome for groups
Awesome for larger groups. I took a weekend camping trip with 17 people and this filter system worked great. We filled it up and let it drain into a water container while we were hiking and the water was filtered by the time we were done. I would recommend this to anyone.

Great for group trips
3 of my friends and I went on a weekend hike in the summer heat of southern Illinois. This filter worked perfectly to keep us hydrated, even with water we wouldn't usually touch, let alone drink. Conveniently packs up when not in use, and simply hangs from a tree after dipping in a water source. The water tasted normal and none of us had any issues afterward.
