WATER: If your camp destination is near a Stream you can filter as much as needed!

NoteYou may want to haul a few 20 Ltr | 5 Gallon water containers in to get started, because you will have plenty time to filter water, after your base camp is set-up.

Gear Suggestion:   Water Filters 
Note: Select a water filter appropriate to group size and water conditions


Katadyn Expedition Water Filter

A group on the move needs a water source it can count on. The Katadyn Expedition is just that. As indestructible as it gets, the Expedition is as easy to use as it is to pack along. Its high-performance filtration uses our silver-impregnated ceramic to ensure the water is free of bacteria and protozoa. Plus, when your group is parched after a long day, you can push out an incredible 4 liters/minute of safe, fresh, regenerating water.

Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L Water Filter

With the Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L, you always have clean drinking water, just fill, hang, and drink! At the heart of the Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L is the newly developed Ultra Flowtm Filter Element. With its flow rate of up to 2 liters per minute, you can reliably filter bacteria, cysts and sediment. A cleanable filter protector lengthens the lifetime of the element so it can clean up to 1,500 liters of water. Thanks to the water level indicator window you can easily see when you need to make another trip to your water source. When you need to refill water, you can easily remove the tube with a quick-release valve equipped with auto shut off. That keeps the hose from coming in contact with contaminated water during refilling. The Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L comes with a practical carry strap to make fetching water from a river or spring easier. Whether brushing your teeth, washing up, or quenching your thirst, plenty of fresh water will always be available with the Base Camp Pro 10L. And with the shower adaptor (available separately), nothing will even stand in the way of a refreshing shower outdoors. One-Year AntiClog™ Guarantee on the filter element.
