User Review: Katadyn Hiker
Price Paid: $69.99 federal reserve notes
I have been using this filter on my bi-yearly canoe and backpacking trips, and I have yet to experience any problems with it in the 6 years I've had it. A dollop of silicone on the pump handle every now and then keeps the pump working smooth. It seems a bit more sturdy that the MSR filters although the filter isn't field cleanable, which isn't a problem if your picky about your water sources. Overall I'm very happy with it. Fun!
