Show Description

Bring a little clarity to your water filtration process. The Hiker Pro Transparent Microfilter includes extra features for higher performance and improved versatility. This low-maintenance, field-serviceable microfilter is extremely resistant to clogging, thanks to a high-surface-area pleated filter cartridge surrounded by a fine membrane. It's effective to 0.2 microns, protecting against protozoa and larger bacteria, so you can hydrate with confidence.

  • Filters up to 1L per minute (48 strokes per litre).
  • Universal bottle adapter fits most hydration systems.
  • Includes field maintenance kit with cleanable filter protector to extend cartridge life in challenging conditions.
  • Quick-connect kit fittings provide compatibility with many hydration systems.
  • Pleated glass fibre filter element filters about 1150L, depending on water quality.
  • Ergonomic handle is comfortable and easy to pump.
  • Includes hydration accessories, pre-filter, universal bottle adapter, carry bag.

Cartridge life

The life of the filter cartridge is based on the quantity of water you can treat before the cartridge is no longer effective. This does not apply to battery operated or chemical filter systems.

A 0.5 micron or smaller filters protozoa and some large bacteria; 0.2 micron or smaller filters smaller bacteria such as campylobacter.

Effective against protozoa

Protozoa are larger than one micron and include cryptosporidium and giardia.

Effective against viruses

Most viruses are in the 0.1 micron size range, but they can be as small as 0.002 microns.

Effective against particulate

Particulate consists of very small bits and pieces such as dirt or bugs.

Effective against bacteria

Bacteria can cause illnesses such as diarrhea and dysentery and are about 1.0 micron in size, although some can be as small as 0.2 microns.
