The Katadyn Pocket’s aluminium construction makes it very durable and the filter is fully field-cleanable.
The ceramic cartridge in the Katadyn Pocket has a life of 50,000 litres. Katadyn is a Swiss company, so customers can rest assured that its products are of the highest quality.
“Katadyn has been developing water filters, chlorine and silver-based sterilising agents, and mobile desalinators for the trekking and marine markets, for over 80 years now,” it says.
“Numerous international relief organisations and special army units rely on the products of Katadyn for survival and lifesaving.”
