Water Filter Tough Enough for SEALs




No matter what you’re doing or where you’re going, the one constant that you’ll always have to worry about is the need for a supply of fresh, clean water. An open fire is handy for burning away the nasty bacteria, but that’s not always an option. The market is filled with portable water purification solutions, but Katadyn’s products are the only ones used by Navy SEALs and other special forces groups around the world. If it’s good enough for SEALs, it’s good enough for you.

The Katadyn Pocket Microfilter won’t actually fit inside your pocket, but it is quite small and portable. It’s also one of the longest-lasting water filtration systems on the market, and the only water filter with a 20-year warranty. That’s because it’s good for roughly 13,000 gallons of purification, provided you keep up with some basic maintenance.

The $300+ asking price is a bit steep for a filtration system, but it’s a worthwhile investment for dedicated off-the-beaten-path travelers.
