Vario Dual Technology Microfilter
The Katadyn Vario Microfilter combines two top filter technologies—ceramic and pleated. The Vario has an impressively high output of 2 liters per minute when set in the "Faster Flow" mode and can be adjusted to "Longer Life" mode to extend the lifetime of the cartridge up to 500 gallons. The filter cartridge is effective against bacteria and protozoa and it has a refillable, activated carbon cartridge to reduce chemicals and improve the taste.
Perfect for a small group, the Katadyn Vario is a powerful companion in a small, lightweight package. With it, you can quickly treat up to 2.11 quarts of water per minute with less effort than you dreamed possible thanks to its Dual Piston Technology. A trio of filters scrubs water to confidently purge the bad stuff: Activate a ceramic pre-filter with a quick turn to conquer dirtier water so the durable glass fiber pleated filter inside lasts even longer. Plus, active charcoal gets rid of odors. Together, you get fresh, tasty refreshment you can trust.
