A 0.3-micron glass-fiber, pleated micro-filter that removes contaminants up to 2 quarts per minute. Cartridge life expectancy is 500 gallons, depending on water quality.
Includes prefilter, carry bag and cleaning pad.
- Vario features a 2-filter system; 1 is a 0.2-micron, pleated glassfiber filter used to remove waterborne bacteria and cysts
- Secondary ceramic filter, engaged with a simple twist of the casing, is used to prefilter debris in dirty water away from primary filter
- Keeping turbid water away from the primary filter effectively extends its usable life
- Vario is also a high-output system, filtering up to 2 qt. per min. in “fast flow mode” (filtering clean water with ceramic filter disengaged)
- In “longer life mode” (ceramic filter engaged), unit produces 1 qt. per min.
- Replaceable carbon keeps water tasting fresh and reduces chemicals, toxins and odors through the life of the cartridge
- Dual-piston technology minimizes the effort required to pump water through the system
- Unit attaches directly to 63mm wide-mouth bottles (not included) for filling; output hose accommodates hydration systems and large containers
- Katadyn Vario water filter includes prefilter, cleaning pad, lubricant and carry bag
