Buy “Katadyn Hiker PRO Replacement Cartridge Camping Water Filters Sports & Outdoors” Online
I ordered this to replace a used up filter in a “Pur Hiker” pump. The pump design is the same as the Katadyn Hiker but the issue of brand name interchangeability was a concern. Well, if anyone else was wondering about whether or not this filter will work in your old Pur brand filter/pump – it does. Also the filter element protector screen. .. thing. .. seems like an improvement over the OG Pur filters which were pretty good already (many, many gallons of all sorts of Alaskan water filtered with this system; no beaver trots to speak of and we’ve got lots of big ol gnarly beavers up here). I only give it a 4 star rating because, well heck, I don’t want to just give the fifth one away . ..gotta keep ’em trying you know. Check it out!

Katadyn Hiker Pro Replacement Cartridge Review
These filters are the perfect replacement unit for your compatible Katadyn filter system! I own the Hiker Pro and these fit and functioned perfectly with my system. The filter is OEM and has the right threading, gaskets, and flow system to breathe new life into your system. I replaced an aging filter and was surprised at how quickly and easily I could filter water with this new filter. …should have replaced it a long time ago! The filter comes with a new filter protector and flexible netting which you need to install; very simple and the included instructions walk you through this easy process. The item also includes a sponge (used for periodically cleaning/wiping the filter protector; after installing the filter protector you’ll know how to remove it for cleaning). You can get extra life out of these filters by cleaning the filter protector, protective sleeve, and swishing the filter through clean water vigorously. The major downside of these filters are that they are very expensive! However, ease of use and the compactness of the system make the Hiker Pro and these replacement filters worth the cost.

I think it is commendable that Katadyn continues to provide filters for discontinued Pur filters. The filters are great, too. But this one doesn’t fit the Put Guide filter. That replacement filter should be about 6" long x 1. 75" dia. This similar filter is about 5" long x 2" dia. The Guide filter can be found on Amazon, but this ain’t it.
