    Comments about Katadyn Vario Portable Water Filter:

    I've used this system for 5 trips to Nepal and 6 trips to northern India. I've used two filters for groups of 12-15 college students hiking in the Himalayas. No problems other than having to clean the pre- filter fairly often ( especially with all the students at 3-4 liters a day). The high flow rate with pumping on up and down stroke is a real plus. I trust this system and even use it in India for the tap water in hotels.

        Comments about Katadyn Vario Portable Water Filter:

        I set off for the long trail for a week long hike to vermont's highest peak. After approximately 2 filtrations the pump would not pump any water. I had to manually fill the cap with water to "prime" the filter and then it would sporadically pump. I checked all the O rings and replaced and lubricated, but to no avail the pump still acted the same. When i got home i tried replacing the filter it self. It did not work. So needless to say i contacted the manufacturer who told me to replace all these different components but would not replace my filter. I was extremely dissatisfied with this product and the customer service. I'll just go back to using my plain jane hiker filter from katadyn. DO not buy this product.
