    Summary:
    Katadyn make cheap junk. Mine broke in 30 days and they still have it after five years. Will not answer any questions or help with shipping.

    Customer Service:
    Customer service is a joke at Katadyn, just blow you off. No response to any questions about helping out with shipping back and forth for there equipment to be serviced. Only response is it will break down every thirty days.

    Summary:
    The Katadyn Pocket filter is awesome. Feels sturdy and works smoothly. Much better than carrying water in the pack and is a good backup to a camelbak on longer trips.

    Customer Service:
    Fast and free shipping from Highwater Filters

    Summary:
    Have owned Katadyn Pocket Filter for the last 5 years.
    OUTSTANDING! This is one very very reliable piece of equipment that has endured much use in remote wilderness areas. It has not once failed to deliver clean purified water. It is easy to maintain no matter what your location. While heavier in weight than more modern filters this, I believe is an ADVANTAGE in terms of durability and its ability to handle rough conditions and rough packing in a backpack.

    Summary:
    Used during a week long excursion to Vermont's Long Trail.
    Pros: sturdy construction, extremely simple to clean and maintain. Uses no chemicals so the water is not foul tasting.
    Cons: heavy, and bulky. Harder to pump than Pur Hiker (Katadyn hiker) and I don't think the water output is as much. All metal construction conducted the cold water freezing my hands.
    Conclusion: This filter may be sturdy and dependable but I'm glad I didn't pay the full price on this.

    Customer Service:
    Never used
