The Katadyn® Vario Microfilter is the only premium microfilter adjustable for different water conditions. Removes waterborne bacteria and cysts, producing fresh tasting waster. A simple turn engages a ceramic pre-filter for longer filter life in dirty water, or you can use the ''faster flow'' mode to utilize the pleated glassfiber filter under normal conditions. The Vario Microfilter from Katadyn is compatible with most standard outdoor bottles and hydration bladders. Weight: 15 oz. Dimensions: 7.5'' x 4''.
Rated 4 out of 5 by spbagwell Very efficient filter
I used it on a 3 day hike and used it extensively to refill water bottles for a total of 3 people. At every water source, the Microfilter was used to ensure we were hydrated and well stocked until the next water source. The pump action was more effective than pushing/pulling as your arms do not get tired. Taking the filter apart to clean was very easy to do, and the ceramic filter shows just how effective it is at reducing particles. If I needed a replacement, I would buy the same model again.

This is the most versatile water filter available, easy to use, makes a lot of water and can adjust for best performance in any water conditions (not saltwater). This would be a good choice for your safety kit. Thanks
