Here on Jebiga we have already mentioned several portable water filters such as the Lifestraw and the Lifesaver Bottle and the Katadyn Pocket Water Microfilter is another product of this kind. Is it than the predecessors? You be the judge.
The Katadyn Pocket is made of sturdy materials and on the first sight it is clear that this product can endure extreme use. The ceramic element is silver impregnated and it works great against bacteria and protozoa and it successfully filters all microorganisms larger than 0.2 microns, thus giving you clean and drinkable water almost anywhere in the world. The product also features a round pump handle that makes it easy for anyone to use.
The dimensions are 10 x 2.4 inches (24 x 6 cm); it weighs 20 ounces (550 grams) and the output of 1L a minute makes it very useful. Add to it the capacity of 50,000l and the amazing 20 year warranty and you will see just how great this thing is. However, it does not filter out viruses, so you will need to boil water before drinking.
