            Great filter, my brother uses the Various, but I needed something smaller for solo/motorcycle camping. Great size, good filter life, easy to use, what more could you want.

            Fragile Quick Connect Fittings

            Comments about Katadyn Hiker Pro Microfilter:

            The quick connect fittings are very fragile. It would be way too easy for one of these to break on the trail and leave you without a filter. I returned it and am waiting on the standard- non-pro -model to arive .

                                    The pale green is probably algae from the river. This would be normal.

                                    Your Hiker is a PUR. I have a Pur circa the same age as yours and I use the Hiker Pro cartridge in it and it works well, except for the little inconvenience of keeping a little water to act as a priming of the pump.

                                  Does this Hiker Pro have a larger pore filter than the Hiker? The specs for the Hiker say it is .2 and the specs for the Hiker Pro say .3. Is the .2 just a misprint, or did the old Hiker actually have a better filter than the new Hiker Pro?

                                    Actually it is quite the opposite. The Hiker Pro will filter out smaller particles than the Hiker filter. The Pro also comes with a self cleaning kit. The Hiker Pro is an upgrade to the Hiker. The replacement cartridge for the Hiker Pro fits the Hiker filter essentially making it the same as the Hiker Pro.

                                  1- Does the Hiker Pro filter out viruses? If not, do any of your filters do so?
                                  2- What are the differences between the Hiker and Hiker Pro? Is it only the hydration bag attachment and the mesh sleeve?
                                  3- Why does the Hiker filter have a .2 pore size and the Hiker Pro a .3?

                                    1. The only filter certified as a purifier which is the standard for viral water contamination is the First Need water purifier item # 81249. Besides this filter you would need a chemical treatment to remove viruses ranging from portable aqua to the miox water purifier by MSR

                                    The Katadyn Hiker Pro Microfilter will filter out all bacteria, boiling water afterwards would kill viruses.

                                    If you have the hiker when it was made by PUR the replacement cartridge would fit your PUR.
