Optimus Polaris Optifuel Stove and Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. – Katadyn Group is the proud winner of two ISPO Awards!

In the Outdoor Accessory category, Katadyn has been chosen as a GOLDWINNER for the NEW Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L. The Base Camp Pro 10L uses our new Ultra Flow Filter Technology™ which produces 4 times faster flow and comes equipped with quick connects for fast filling of hydration bladders. The Ultra Flow Filter Element removes bacteria and protozoa down to 0.2 microns, including giardia and cryptosporidium. Simply fill, elevate, and watch your clean water flow. The 10 liter water bag includes a clear water level indicator window on the side of the bag that tells you when it’s time to make your next water run. The Base Camp Pro 10L is the only water filter which quickly and easily converts to a camp shower. Simply attach the shower adapter accessory (sold separately) and turn the window in the bag toward the sun to allow your water to warm up and you are ready for a refreshing shower.

In the Outdoor Stove category, Optimus has been chosen as a WINNER for the NEW Optimus Polaris Optifuel Stove. The Polaris Optifuel is the new benchmark for versatility and ease of use in outdoor cooking. With its Single Jet Technology, users can use both LPG gas canisters and liquid gas (White Gas, Kerosene, Diesel and Jet Fuel) without having to change the burner jet. The Polaris also comes equipped with a Magnetic Cleaning Needle which allows you to clean your stove while you’re cooking. And when the weather turns south, just invert the LPG gas canister to use it in 4 Season Mode. This feature provides maximum versatility and functionality when all you need hot cup of coffee. And speaking of coffee, or tea, or a nice hot meal, you can have a cup of boiling water in as little as 4 minutes because of its patented Quick Priming Burner that makes for faster lighting and ultimately a warmer stomach. Simple, flexible, and easy to use, the only hard decision is choosing what kind of fuel to use.
