Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L wins ISPO GOLD AWARD 2015/2016
Whether in the African steppe, the South American jungle or just camping with the family, one thing you always must have is plenty of clean, fresh drinking water. Now, with the new award-winning gravity filter from Katadyn, the Base Camp Pro 10L, you will never be lacking this valuable commodity in totally unlimited quantities – and you won’t even have to expend any personal energy.
The Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L has won the ISPO GOLD AWARD in the Outdoor Accessories category. Every year, ISPO honors the most exceptional sporting goods products with an ISPO AWARD. Following clearly defined criteria, a jury consisting of independent sports business professionals evaluates several hundred entries – including some from non-exhibitors.
At the heart of the Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L is the newly developed Ultra Flow™ filter element. With its flow rate of up to 2 liters per minute, you can reliably filter bacteria, cysts and sediment. Thanks to gravity, water flows without assistance through the 0.2 micron glass fiber membrane filter, while you are in camp preparing dinner or perhaps watching the moon rise. A cleanable filter protector lengthens the lifetime of the element so it can clean up to 1,500 liters of water. In very turbid conditions, larger particles are pre-filtered before they can contaminate the filter, thus making backflushing unnecessary. Katadyn offers a One-Year AntiClog™ Guarantee on the filter element.
The extra large 10-liter reservoir has a water level indicator window so you can easily see when you need to make another trip to your water source. When you need to refill water, you can easily remove the tube with a quick-release valve equipped with auto shut off. That keeps the hose from coming in contact with contaminated water during refilling. The Katadyn Base Camp Pro 10L comes with a practical carry strap to make fetching water from a river or spring easier.
Whether brushing your teeth, washing up, or quenching your thirst, plenty of fresh water will always be available with the Base Camp Pro 10L. And with the shower adaptor (available separately), nothing will even stand in the way of a refreshing shower outdoors.
Also handy are the quick connects for hydration systems. Particularly practical on longer trekking tours, this enables the direct filling of a hydration bladder or pack with fresh water. Safe water treatment – quick and reasonable too.
