Katadyn Debuts Hiker Pro Clear

Publish date:

Unique transparent housing offers performance you can see


Minneapolis, Minn. (June 14, 2017) — Katadyn introduces its best-selling Hiker Pro in a new, transparent housing built for quick and efficient use in the backcountry. The lightweight, high-performance microfilter system maintains easy operation and optimized pumping capacity.

“The Katadyn Hiker Pro has long been the status quo for pump microfilter technology,” said Shawn Hostetter, president of Katadyn North America. “The new Hiker Pro operates with the same efficiency as its predecessor while sporting a fresh new look that allows users to see the filtration in action.”

A staple to the backcountry since 2005, the Hiker Pro delivers exceptional flow rate (read: 1 liter/minute), while boasting a number of additional features including quick connect fittings and a cleanable filter protector to extend the filter’s life.

Suitable for clear to extremely dirty water, Katadyn’s trusted technology effectively safely removes microorganisms, bad taste and chemicals through the Hiker Pro’s .2-micron filter. The new Hiker Pro Clear retails for $84.95.
