During a disaster, water quality can become compromised. Eliminate bacteria, protozoa, cysts, algae, spores and sediments and ensure your water is safe to drink with the award-winning Backcountry Vario Microfilter.
The Backcountry Vario Microfilter combines efficiency with the simplest handling. The technology consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fiber filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odors. The cleanable ceramic disc lengthens the life of the micro-filter and the 0.2 Micron high surface area pleated glass-fiber micro-filter removes waterborne bacteria. The replaceable carbon core reduces chemicals, pesticides and bad taste in water.
You can be sure of the quality of The Backcountry Vario Microfilter because it is manufactured by Katadyn of Switzerland, a global leader in portable water treatment.
