The Hiker Pro is a durable water filter that is easy to setup and use. It filters out bacteria and protozoa resulting in great water quality. Versatile attachments and points mean it can be used with other hydration kits such as bladders easily.

Katadyn says:

New, transparent design; same proven quality: The beloved Hiker Pro is the lightest filter in the Backcountry Series. When you are out on a long adventure, this compact filter can deliver a liter of fresh, enjoyable water from a lake, river or creek in only a minute. With the quick connect fittings, you can filter clean water with one hand directly into a bottle or pack reservoir. The filter protector can be cleaned in the field easily and effortlessly, thus guaranteeing quick access to safe drinking water even with turbid waters.

Katadyn's Hiker Pro Transparent Water Filter does a great job of making your water safe when drinking from natural sources. The microfilter can clean a litre of water in under one minute, removing bacteria and protazoa such as giardia and cryptosporidium. With a number of accessories and versatile attachment points the Hiker Pro is an impressively versatile piece of kit. It is a bit on the chunky side but the carry bag helps to keep all of the kit together and for piece of mind it is well worth taking though.

It's a bit labour intensive as it takes a bit of time and effort using the pump but this isn't something that has bothered me too much knowing that the water is good at the end of the process. One slight issue is how it clogs up when the water has bits of sediment in it so you have to be wary at the source and willing to clean it pretty regularly. This can be reduced by quickly filtering the water if its cloudy beforehand or cleaning after each use which, thankfully is an easy task.
