I had the old Pur Hiker and bought this replacement cartridge. I was able to screw the top off and replace it with the new cartridge. It comes with a thin layer of plastic to wrap around the cartridge for more protection. The lub helps slid on the tube. I pumped some fresh water and its working. Instead of buying a brand new water petrification kit this replaced a perfectly fine working item but now its brand new because the cartridge is fresh.
This filter lasts a long time, and is easy to clean. The replacement comes with a small tube of O-ring lubricant to help ensure that it does not leak. There is a fine mesh "filter protector" which filters out larger debris before it gets to the actual filter. I use this in the Katadyn Base Camp (gravity bag) system, and it works wonderfully. This is indeed the correct replacement filter for that system.
The Katadyn Hiker Pro makes a great long lasting replacement cartridge, but even the best have to be replaced sooner or later. When I hike solo on the Appalachian Trail one filter will last me well over 1,000 miles. They are quick and easy to replace and because they have a great reputation they are sold at most outdooor stores along the AT.
This is one long-lasting cartridge but it does have to be replaced every once in awhile. The best way I determine replacement is the difference in color. Labored pumping doesn't occur until later. Works great until the very end. Dry out as good as possible & store in a plastic bag in the freezer when not being used for long periods of time.
I've used my filter now for about three years and it is one of the best systems that I have ever used. It is lightweight and efficient. I do a lot of tough hiking and it is a very good system. A buddy of mine bought one before deploying to Afghanistan and he swore by the filter. That's what got me looking.
I work for a YMCA Camp and this is the product used to take 10+ kids into the backcountry and depend on for water/survival. It is a great product and serves up the best mountain fresh water I have ever tasted.
I have just purchased one for myself and friend!
Can't wait for another trip to taste the best water ever!
