Katadyn Hiker Pro

Katadyn Hiker Pro Water Filter for clean waterA must-have for your hiking bag or 72-hour bug out bag. 

One of the things I see questionable with most Bug Out Bag Checklists is the 1 Gallon of Water needed per day.  So for a 72 hour bag, you need 3 Gallons of H2O, and at 8.34 lbs. per Gallon, you’re looking at adding 25.02 lbs. for your water. 

However, if you’re bug-out route includes enough lakes, ponds, streams, or rivers, you could just pack the Katadyn Hiker Pro filter.  At 11 oz., that leaves you with 24 lbs. freed up not carrying your own water.

Rating such a product, I’d give this one 5 out of 5 stars!
