The Katadyn Base Camp quickly and easily filters large quantities of water in the backcountry. Using a .3 micron pleated cartridge, the gravity operated filter instantly outputs water free of bacteria, Giardia, and Crytosporidium to EPA standards. A 48" output hose with an on/off valve makes filling cups and bottles easy and convenient. The water bag has a capacity of 2.6 gallons making it ideal for group and family use.
The high surface area pleated cartridge is the same cartridge used in the Hiker Pro, offering a high flow rate (.5L/minute) and a life span of up to 200 gallons depending on water quality. An activated carbon core reduces unpleasant tastes and odors from water. A removable filter protector extends the filter cartridge life.
The releasable buckle system makes filling and hanging the reservoir bag easy and quick. The entire unit weighs only 13 oz. and packs down to a 6" x 4" x 4" package. Included is one 2.6 gallon water bag, one anti-clog HikerPro microfilter, one removable filter protector, one 48" output hose, and one output hose valve.
