Great filter Review by EMS Backpacker
Use this product while backpacking on the trail. The ceramic disc clogs at about 1 liter so it isn't practical for use. The "faster flow" setting seemed to work great. Filled my 3L bladder faster than my fellow backpackers could fill their 2L. (Posted on 8/12/11)
Great filter fast shipping best price. Review by Aztrooper
The intake hose connection needs to be protected as it sticks out and could be broken off if dropped. Mine was missing the intake hose float but a call to the factory and it was sent right out. Love it for my bug out bag. (Posted on 6/26/12)
Katadyn komes klean Review by Scoutmaster
Our Boy Scout Troop gave the Katadyn its trial run while backpacking in Oil Creek PA. It performed wonderfully and rewarded us with cold clean water during our hot weekend. Clean up after the trip was a breeze. A few times the hose was hard to remove from the nipple since not enough silicone was app (Posted on 6/28/12)
