Katadyn Pocket Microfilter
Tough enough to handle heavily silted water, the Katadyn Pocket Microfilter has a cleanable ceramic filter element that filters down to 0.2 microns, removing all known disease-causing bacteria and protozoa from your drinking water without the use of chemicals. Designed with few moving parts and an easy-maintenance design, it's the water filter of choice for traveling professionals and those who can't afford the Giardia diet plan deep in the backcountry. New features include a round pump handle for comfortable use and a bottle clip on the outlet hose.

My go-to filter
Heavier than others but bomb-proof, can be serviced in the field, and just never, ever lets me down. When you need to filter a lot of water and don't have the luxury of passive drip system set up or time, this is your best bet. I might take a smaller, lighter 'Hiker' model when ounces are important...but I've used this on river trips, backpacking, travelling/trekking, and even in extended stay situations where the water supply was sketchy (at best). Just a champ.

Sturdy, Reliable, Easy to Use.
Heavier than others, but for durability and quality it is worth the extra weight.
