Katadyn Vario Water Filter


Katadyn Vario Water Filter with Adjustable Water Flow for All Conditions

As the first truly new water filter to be introduced in the past 10 years, the Vario will turn heads with its unique features and technology. It is the best choice for making safe drinking water in a variety of conditions.

* Fastest water filter available - 2 liters/ minute
* Adjustable for different field conditions
* Only filter with replaceable activated charcoal core - see Link below

The Vario combines the benefits of the best technologies to become the ultimate water filter. It produces massive quantities of water in most water conditions, yet easily adjusts to protect the filter cartridge when water is dirty. The Vario also has a unique feature that allows the internal carbon to be replaced - reducing chemicals and always keeping water tasting fresh. It also attaches directly to most hydration systems for extra convenience.
