The Katadyn Pocket Filter is a pump-action water filter that is effective in removing 99.99% of bacteria and protozoa. It is successful at filtering out common harmful bacteria and cysts larger than 0.2 microns as well as common impurities such as giardia and cryptosporidium cysts. It uses a silver impregnated and fully cleanable ceramic element to filter. It has a long usable life and can filter up to 50,000 liters of water before needing to be replaced. With a decent flow rate of up to 1 liter per minute, this filter is good for use with small groups, making it a popular camping water filter. It is, however, the heaviest of the 5 and it is on the expensive side when compared to other camping water purifiers.
