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.Read more ›
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.

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.
