Katadyn Hiker vs MSR MiniWorks

Katadyn hiker water filter

The Katadyn Hiker and the MSR MiniWorks are two of the more popular hiking, camping and backpacking water filters on the market. Of the two, which is the better choice? If all you look at is price then the Katadyn Hiker is the easy winner at around $56, which is $20 less than the MSR MiniWorks which comes in a around $75. So can we justify the MSR Miniworks costing $20 more than the Katadyn Hiker? Let’s take a look and find out.

Both the Katadyn Hiker and the MSR MiniWorks have been on the market for years, if not decades. The Katadyn Hiker started off under the Pur water filter bandname in the mid to late 1990s. I know this because I bought one of the Pur water filters before Katadyn bought the outdoor line of Pur water filters. The Katadyn Hiker replacement filters will perfectly fit my Pur filter that is over 25 years old. From time to time those old Pur water filters will pop up on Ebay at a discounted rate. So if you wanted to save a few dollars keep and eye on Ebay, get one of those older filters, then put a new replacement filter in it. But after you do that the cost is around that of a new filter.

Sawyer PointONE As A Gravity Filter

Sawyer PointONE gravity filter

The Sawyer PointONE is my new favorite water filter. Depending on water conditions, it can filter up to one millions gallons, and the flow rate beats the Sawyer Mini water filter hands down.

However wonderful the Sawyer PointONE water filter is, the user still has to either fill up a bag or water bottle, then attach the bag or bottle to the filter. Filling a water bottle with a small opening can be a pain, and sometimes an act in frustration. Rather than using the bag that was included with the Sawyer PointONE water filter, I bought a two liter platypus bag. One end of the platypus bag opens, and water is simply scooped up from the water source.

Think of the platypus bag as large heavy duty ziplock bag with a hose attachment. The bag can then be hung from a tree limb, or from the side of a tree. From there a plastic hose is attached, with the Sawyer PointONE water filter inline between the platypus bag and the water bottle.

How Good Does A LifeStraw Work?

LifeStraw Water Filter

Surely everyone has heard of a LifeStraw? It is a simple tube that is a water filter. Place the inlet into the water, then suck the water through the tube. Seems simple enough right? Almost too good to be true?

If something seems to god to be true it usually is, except for the LifeStraw.

Back in March of 2017 I decided to take the plunge and ordered a LifeStraw from Amazon. In April I took the LifeStraw on a hiking trip and gave it a test run.

First impressions were very good. It was just like pulling water through a straw. The water took a few seconds to get through the filter, but when it did, the flow was excellent.
