Forget endless pumping to fill multiple water bottles; let the Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L water filter do the work for you. Just fill and hang for an easy-to-use water supply right in your campsite.
The Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L is a gravity water filter for large groups. Whether you're hiking, biking, car camping or even in a pinch at home, this filter has a flow rate of 2 liters per minute to create safe drinking water for everyone. Capable of providing for groups of 10 or more, or even smaller groups, fill the bag and hang it up, then go about your business of setting up the rest of camp. Group members can fill up their water bottle or use the quick connect to attach directly to their hydration bladder. The Ultra Flow Filter; makes it all happen and when you're done filling up, just use the on/off valve before passing it to the next person. Even carrying water from the source back to camp is a breeze with the included carry strap.

The last thing you want to do after hiking eight miles to camp just before sundown is waste your energy--dividing it between pumping away for clean water and trying to start a fire. Save your strength by doing both at the same time with the Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L Water Filter. Just fill the reservoir, hang it from a nearby branch, and let gravity do the rest, freeing you up to focus on getting that fire sparked. The Base Camp Pro 10L reliably filters bacteria, cysts, and sediment at a rate of two liters per minute, so you'll have fresh water for the whole group before you can even put flint to tinder. With the water level indicator window, you'll easily anticipate when the next trip to the creek or lake needs to be made for another batch of fresh H2O. And when that time does come, just remove the tube with the simple quick release valve before heading to the source, as to prevent it from coming in contact with the contaminated water. Don't worry about that freshly purified water spilling onto the ground either, because this filter is equipped with an automatic shutoff. With regular maintenance and proper cleaning, the Base Camp Pro's Ultra Flow glass-fiber filter purifies up to 1,500 liters of water in its lifetime. However, if you don't do such a hot job of keeping the filter itself clean, Katadyn offers a One-Year AntiClog guarantee.
Katadyn Camp & Hike Base Camp Pro 10L Water Filter 8019201. This filter uses new ultra flow technology that provides 4 times faster flow than the original Katadyn Base Camp and has a sediment trap to extend the filter-life. The Katadyn Gravity Camp 6L Water Filter has a higher safety level of 0.2 micron to further reduce bacteria. Like all Katadyn filters these are fully field cleanable and field maintainable. Katadyn pleated glass-fiber with filter-protector filters do not need constant cleaning like the hollow-fiber filters offered by other manufacturers. Additionally this is one of the only water filters that can be converted to camp showers using the Shower Adaptor Accessory (sold separately).
The Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L effortlessly removes bacteria and cysts such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium at an output of up to 2 liters per minute. No pumping, just speedy, efficient flow of safe drinking water for your group. Simply fill the 10 liter bag with the cleanest water source available. Clip the buckle closure and hang the bag above your water container. The Ultra Flow Filter(TM), with its 0.2 micron (0.0002 mm) pleated glass fiber element reliably filters bacteria, cysts and sediment. A cleanable filter protector lengthens the lifetime of the filter element so it can clean up to 400 gallons (1500 liters) of water. A clear window in the bag lets you see when it's time to refill. The outlet hose can be removed with a quick-release valve equipped with auto shut off. That keeps the hose from coming in contact with contaminated water during refilling. The handy included carry strap makes packing water from the source easier. The shower adapter (Item # 70864.01, sold separately), converts the bag into a refreshing outdoor shower. There's a one-year AntiClog(TM) Guarantee on the filter element. Katadyn warrants your Ultra Flow Filter Element to be free from defects that cause the filter to clog. Great for family and group camping water purification.
