I wanted a decent and reliable portable water filter that could be used for either drinking from the filter bottle or decanting larger amounts into water bottles. I did consider a couple of other manufactures namely, Drinksafe and Lifesaver, but a closer look at their products could be expensive in the long term. Drinksafe manufacture several filtration units. The reviews are on the whole quite good but several reviews have questioned the build quality (leaks from the cap by squeezing the bottle too hard when the filter starts to become clogged or leaks from the flip out drinking teat assembly). Some claim in real world useage the amount of water it can filter is way too generous and the filter can clog prematurely if you try to filter too much water that has high sediment with no way to clean the filter. Replacement filters cost around £24.

Another attractive water filter system was the Lifesaver 4000UF. A fairly light all plastic construction and used by the military, it's about half the price of the Katadyn pocket system. The downside is the price of the filters. Unopened, the main filter has a shelf life of 3 years. Once opened, the life of the main filter is 2 years and at £90 per filter means you're spending £45 per year for filtered water. The additional carbon block filter only filters 250 litres of water and a replacement pack of 4 carbon filters costs around £20. So this system will become an expensive long term option.

The Katadyn Pocket water filter oozes quality and is a simple and proven design. It's difficult to see in normal useage how it could ever go wrong and all reviews on this system are positive.

Bought for kilimanjaro trek - did not disappoint. Easy to use and handle. Water quality excellent. On kilimanjaro at 3700m onwards water looks bit brownish - after filtered clear as anything. Also none of us got sick. Great product.

Very impressed with the weight and build quality of the product. It pumps easily ( though only tried with clear water), is easy to maintain and dismantle. The only criticism I have is that the inlet tube is stiff and taking it off and on the inlet spout is not easy.

This is an excellent product. The local water supply is not too safe; Causes vulcanic tummy and vesuvian tail. This product eliminates the bacteria causing the problem. Has been in daily use for two years now with no problems. In daily use, remember to take it appart and flush it clean weekly. Similarly, on the trail, always clean it before packing away. Never let the outlet pipe anywhere near the inlet pipe to prevent cross-contamination. Before re-assembly always apply a thin coating of Silicone Grease to the threads and exposed aluminium to prevent oxidation (Aluminium does rust).

The tiny tube of grease that comes with the product will not last long so it is a good idea to buy a 100 gram tube of the grease at the same time and pop it into the carrying bag which comes with the filter.

It is also a good idea to put a Stainless Steel Cup with folding handle in the bag so you have something to put your clean water into on the trail. That also allows you to have a cup of tea or coffee on the trail boiled over a wee twig fire. Be carefull not to burn doon the forests.

A word of warning: The Outer-Sleeve is hard plastic; drop it and it breaks; I learned that the hard way. It can take a while to get a replacement part, and though I was still able to make water safe by boiling, water does not taste as good with the impuritys not filtered out. I suggest wrapping some foam sheeting around the filter to give it some protection against accidental dropping. Remember sod's law, what can happen will happen; no matter how carefull you are, some other sod will drop it, so wrap it.

This product is used by the Red Cross, and probably every armed force in the World. Can't think of a better recommendation than that.

Paid £160 for this, while most other retailers sell for well over £200 - bargain I'd say! It only arrived a couple of days ago and I haven't yet had a chance to test it outside in the wilds - so far just filtered a couple of litres of tap water in the kitchen!

Although I can't yet comment on whether I was able to survive the breakdown of civilization with this, I can at least agree with every other review on the internet: the build quality of this filter is pretty much bullet proof and I should think it'll last quite a while. I'm sure other filters are lighter than this, but they'll likely break at some point and I doubt this will.

Pumping action was very smooth and didn't require much effort to fill my test pint glass. I did find a small leak coming from the top of unit a few seconds after I started pumping, but found that I hadn't tightened the top enough. Problem quickly solved. After this I didn't have any further issues. The external hoses all fitted on easily and subsequent dis-assembly and cleaning were simple.

I'll add to this review once it's had a more thorough test.
