The Vario combines individual efficiency with the simplest possible handling. The technology it uses consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fibre filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted individually according to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odors. Anyone who needs up to 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for emergency kit! I live on an island with limited resources in an emergency situation. This filter is part of my emergency kit in case of an earthquake or other natural disaster. It is also part of my camping equipment. A great addition that assures potable water in any circumstance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filters Water Quickly I've only gotten to field test it once. Even in freezing conditions, output was fast and the water tasted great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darn Good Filter I've taken this filter on several trips with me so far and its held up pretty well. Puts out great tasting water no matter how foul the source is. Easy to take apart and clean (maybe three steps). I recommend keeping it set to the "Longer Life" option rather than the alternative "Faster Flow." Also, in water with a lot of sediment I've found that it helps to tie a coffee filter around the pre filter to trap the largest debris.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Carbon Core only good for 50 GAL, The product is only as good as it's weakest link It might be a very good device, but they mis-lead you by stating in very bold locations that this system is good for something like 1500 hundred pints or quarts, something like that. What they don't tell you is the Carbon Core filter is only good for like 50 Gal (200 liters) untill you read the doc that comes with the device.,,,,What pisses me off is that they do no display that bit of information as bold as the 1500 hundred; very mis-leading. Why hide that fact from the consumer like they do?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Katadyn is in a league of its own. In comparison with equivalently priced filter pumps, the Vario is a standout winner. It pumps much faster than the competition, and is uniquely adjustable depending on water conditions. The faster flow setting bypasses the outer filter, and sends the water straight through the carbon core. It is a bit on the heavy side, but I find it to be worthwhile, as it offers more options than the competition. Don't skimp on your water filter. Go katadyn or go home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and fast I upgraded to the vario from the hiker. I loved the hiker pro it worked great but had to replace it when it was stolen out of my car . the vario works almost twice as fast for those times you really want water haha, this one works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to take on camping or for those doomsday preppers! This product works and is worth it's weight! It helps so much not carrying a ton of water with you on a trip, especially if you are like me and drink a lot of water. Not only do you not need to worry about carrying your own water, but you can provide water for everyone else on your trip, lightening everyone's load and increasing everyone's speed and helping your ears cause you don't need to worry as much about others complaining their pack is too heavy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Service from Katadyn Somewhere in between airline travel (baggage goons) and storage the plastic piece on the outside of the pump that holds the tubing for the pre-filter and brings water into the internal filters had become weakened. As I was prepping the unit for an AT adventure, this piece broke completely off the unit. This was the night before leaving and it was not a repair that could be made short of getting a brand new replacement piece. For this trip we used the steripen and sediment filter. ,,,,Katadyn customer service rocked! They knew what I was talking about and immediately sent off a new replacement piece (warranty and no cost). The piece was easy to replace. ,,,,
