For over 30 years, the Katadyn Pocket Microfilter has been the top choice water filter for emergency preparedness, professional-use and militaries globally. Engineered with the highest quality construction; it can handle the most rugged conditions. The 0.2 micron silver-impregnated ceramic filter element can lasts an impressive 50,000 liter, depending on water quality.
Water treatment products are in high demand for outdoor enthusiasts, international travelers, and relief agencies. Few are better for long-lasting continuous use, however, than the Katadyn Pocket water microfilter. Made of heavy-duty materials, the Pocket features a silver-impregnated ceramic element that's effective against bacteria and protozoa even in extreme conditions. Unlike disposable filters, the ceramic element can be cleaned several times, even in the field. More importantly, the element filters all microorganisms larger than 0.2 microns (0.0002mm), producing clear, drinkable water no matter where in the world you are. The pump also includes an improved, round pump handle for better ergonomics and an outlet hose that attaches to water containers with a single clip.
The Pocket hails from Katadyn's Endurance series, a high-quality line of filters that produce up to 100 times more water than standard water filters. The Pocket is so tough, in fact, that it's the first choice for extreme adventurers like Mike Horn. Plus, it's the only water filter with a 20-year warranty. Other features include a measuring gauge that indicates when you should change the filtering element, a cushioned base that makes it easy to pump on all surfaces, a prefilter, and a carrying bag.
Why Water Filtration Is Important
The World Health Organization (WHO) attributes 80 percent of all travel diseases to contaminated drinking water. Drinking water contains three groups of pathogenic microorganisms: viruses, such as hepatitis A, Norwalk virus, or poliovirus; bacteria, like e-coli, salmonella, and cholera; and protozoans, such as giardia and cryptosporidium. Tap water and ice cubes are usually the culprits when traveling, but even bottled water can be questionable. The backcountry is also a source of waterborne illness. A pristine stream may be safe one day and contaminated the next, as microorganisms stemming from human and animal waste are typically spread by rain and runoff. As a result, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends treating water from every source in the backcountry.

Product Testimonials"The Katadyn Pocket Water Microfilter is one tough and efficient outdoor product. Made to last, it is designed by a Swiss company (think Army knife and fancy watches) and built to withstand years of use to provide clean water in the most remote places or difficult situations."
"Over the years I have encountered a number of different types of water filters. While some of them worked for a while, not many of them were built to last. When choosing a water filter, one thing I look at is how well it can take a beating...In my opinion, the Katadyn Pocket Microfilter is one of the only filters on the market that can live up to that challenge."
"The Katadyn Pocket Water Filter is my favorite of all the portable water filters that I own. Other than the amount of pumping required to produce water, I have nothing bad to report on the Katadyn. It is an exceptionally well-made water filter and you “WILL NOT” be disappointed with it."
