User Review: Katadyn Pocket
Price Paid: $240
This filter is very quality and robust.
It is heavy (as pack articles go) and very well made.
Filters water lickity-split, I was shocked at how fast I could pump 3 liters at a pop.
I would strongly suggest that you obtain a longer outlet hose, I have found that 32" is enough so that you can squat streamside, and fill a vessel tucked under your arm.
It is such a good filter, I will only bring this unit for filtration, and if weight is an issue, I will treat chemically. After using this product, the plastic stuff is just plain miserable to use.
I gave it 4.5 stars, because with some additional machining of the aluminum components, I feel that it could drop some grams...but who's counting anyway?
Actually had to scrub the element when it "slowed down" (still faster than anything out there!). Definitely get a longer outlet hose as I stated above. I can fill a liter bottle super quick.
