Product Description

The Vario consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fiber filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted individually according to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odors. If you want two liters of drinking water per minute can use the glass fiber and active charcoal filter. If the water is extremely cloudy, the ceramic pre-filter can be fitted in a moment in order to extend the service life of the glass fiber filter. The Vario is compatible with most standard outdoor bottles and hydration bladders.


The Vario's capacity is 530 gallons when you use the glassfiber filter, and 106 gallons if you use the carbon filter. The Vario will output 2 liters of drinking water per minute. Dimensions are 7.5" x 4.0", and the weight is 425 grams.

Voted 5/5

I got this water filter as a pro deal when I was working at an outdoor store over 2 years ago. I have used it a bunch of times while backpacking, and it has never let me down. Has a great output, and is easy to pump. I like this filter a lot better then the Katadyn hiker pro, which I used before I got this one.
