The Vario combines individual efficiency with the simplest possible handling.
The technology it uses 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.
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.

  • Vario features a 2-filter system; 1 is a 0.2-micron, pleated glass-fiber filter used to remove waterborne bacteria and cysts
  • Secondary ceramic filter, engaged with a simple twist of the casing, is used to pre-filter debris in dirty water away from primary filter
  • Keeping turbid water away from the primary filter effectively extends its usable life
  • Vario is also a high-output system, filtering up to 2 qt. per min. in “fast flow mode” (filtering clean water with ceramic filter disengaged)
  • In “longer life mode” (ceramic filter engaged), unit produces 1 qt. per min.
  • Replaceable carbon keeps water tasting fresh and reduces chemicals, toxins and odors through the life of the cartridge
  • Dual-piston technology minimizes the effort required to pump water through the system
  • Unit attaches directly to 63mm wide-mouth bottles (not included) for filling; output hose accommodates hydration systems and large containers
  • Katadyn Vario water filter includes pre-filter, cleaning pad, lubricant and carry bag

Output and longevity specifications based on information provided by the manufacturer.

Pleated filter comes with a pre-filled carbon core. Both filter and carbon are independently replaceable.

Carbon can be changed when the taste of water changes. (Carbon typically becomes ineffective after six months of use or approximately 200 liters.) Field cleanable ceramic pre-filter should be replaced when completely worn.
