The Katadyn Base Camp filter is a gravity feed filter system that utilizes a bag that is filled with unfiltered water, hung, and allows gravity to feed the water through the filter media into a water container. It is one of Katadyn’s Backcountry Series of filters. Initial Impressions

    9 of us went into the Back country of western Adirondack Park. I had High hopes of the camp filter not bringing the usual back up hand pump, just iodine tablets. We filled it the first time at 1 pm Thursday and it ran flawlessly for three days basically non stop till Saturday late afternoon when the drip started to slow to a slow fizzle. We figured we made between 150 to 175 gallons of water that was used to cook and drink. Would have liked to hav just brought a back-up filter. The extra insurance would have been well worth the $. Excellent product.

    This was perfect for our 4 day 8 person hike. No pumping required, just someplace to hang it. (We took turns holding it up in some cases). The filter lasts for a long time, the water tasted great, it was light, and compact. I love this product.

    Katadyn’s Base Camp water filter filled a need for us. We normally hike and camp as a family and our group size numbers between 7 and 10. In years past we have carried at least two water purifiers. One an MSR and the other a Pur Hiker. In order to produce enough water for our needs we would pump long and often. This product fit our needs well. The filtration is accomplished by gravity flow. The clean water released to a large storage container for storage…(additional purchase needed here, ours was a 2.5 gal collapsible). My only complaint is a minor one. It took much longer to filter than advertised. If our group needed immediate access to fresh water we needed to use our personal water filters. We found ourselves planning ahead to take care of our water needs. We would “harvest” the available water before bedtime to ensure our needs the next morning. By planning ahead we managed a consistent supply. We will supplement this product with at least one handheld purifier for immediate fresh water needs.
