User Review: Katadyn Hiker PRO
I am a military deployed in SUDAN with the UN. Canada has issued me this filtration unit for the mission.
After using it for filtering about 100 L of water (the filters are due to be changed after 170 L), the casing of the unit broke on the side of the pump (the small cylinder) and then water gushed out at every pump ... Luckily for me, there are two of us here (two Canadians), so I ended up using my countryman's filtration unit (also a KATAKYN Hiker Pro). Sadly, his unit also broke at the same location, also at about 100 L of pumped water.
After using 2 different units which broke at the same location, after about the same use ... hence I would not recommend this item.
That being said, it is light, easy to use, easy to clean.
