Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

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.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BA water filter! Bought this for a camping trip to Grayson Highlands. Needed a way to filter gallons of water at a time, and my Sawyer mini squeeze would have taken 4 ever. The sawyer is good, but this katadyn filtered so much more water so much faster. It’s frickin awesome for groups of buddies hittin the woods and sippin on goods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pump Bought this for a 10 day hike with 4 guys. It worked like a charm pumped quickly, ceramic filter was easy to clear. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great hiking pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I bought this for a recent thru hiking trip where I didn’t want to stuff around with plastic containers but rather just carry the essentials. It’s great because it fits wide mouth bottles meaning nothing is lost

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless handling I had Katadyn Pro filter for several years and always find the straight handle awkward to pump. The Vario's two stage handle is so much easier to use. It is super fast. The separate carbon and ceramic filters are also flexible.

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.
Date published: 2013-06-24
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.

Does it reduce or eliminate salt and other minerals? I travel to the UK & Ireland where it is nearly impossible to find water without added minerals and I have kidney disease which makes excess sodium, magnesium, potassium & calcium dangerous.

Asked by: MoNa
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! Y'know what I want? A product that will make my GIRLFRIEND less salty, amirite?!?!? Hahahaha!!! (Please don't tell her I said that...) Anywhoooo....I checked this out with Katadyn, and while it's great for filtering against microorganisms, chemicals and even extremely dirty water...it is NOT effective against salt. Sorry about that. Katadyn do make some desalinators (which we do not carry, unfortunately) so I'd say check out them, esp the Survivor series. Pricey, but effective. Hope this helped you out!! Hugsies.

Is it effective at killing viruses?

Asked by: Hiker
That's a great question! Unfortunately, the Vario will not be able to filter out viruses because they are much smaller. With that being said, if you add one Micropur tablet per one liter of water, you will kill them in roughly 15 minutes. I included a link below to the tablets. Hope this helps! https://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_Katadyn-Micropur-MP1-Purification-Tablets_10009076_10208_10000001_-1_
