User Review: Katadyn Hiker PRO
Price Paid: $49.95
I have used my Hiker Pro for 2 seasons now, I have had to clean the filter once when the water volume slowed down.
It is very easy to pump and produces enough water quickly to not be bothersome. I use the filter when dayhiking or overnight trips with 4 people.
I purchased the filter after reading online reviews and figured it was worth a try. Some people have reported the housing is prone to cracking but I have had no issues so far. I do perform regular maintenance, lube seals, rinse housing, etc. I have used it in murky water, alpine streams, and algae covered creeks.
Overall I am very satisfied with the filter and good deals can be found online.
