Katadyn's Mini Water Filter is small and lightweight but still packs a 0.2micron cleanable ceramic filter ensuring removal of bacteria, cysts and sediment.
The Katadyn Mini is the lightest and most compact filter on the market. Its small size fits in a coat pocket or waist pack and is ideal for travel, business trips and day hiking. Exclusive silver impregnated ceramic filter removes bacteria and protozoa.
Katadyn's Mini Filter is a handpump operated water filter that weighs just 226grams, which is very light indeed. Used in conjunction with Micropur Forte tablets it will protect against bacteria, cycsts, sediment and viruses.
Whether you need a filter or not will depend on the water sources that you will be using - if you are confident that you will be able to find water without any suspended matter in it then a lighter option is to use Katadyn tablets to purify it - but if your water source is going to b suspect you may need to filter out this particulate matter - in which case you need a filter, and this is one of the lightest.
