The latest in Katadyn’s popular BeFree line of water filters is the Gravity BeFree 3.0L Filtration System — the brand’s first gravity filter. Whether setting up a basecamp water system or filtering for a group, gravity filters are the easiest way to filter tons of water in a short amount of time.
The new Gravity BeFree 3.0L holds more than 100-fluid ounces while providing the same
rapid flow rate of two liters per minute and shake-to-clean filter technology that is
standard in the BeFree line.
The new Gravity BeFree 3.0L system utilizes an output hose with quick-connect that allow for hands-free filling of water bottles, hydration bladders, and even dog bowls. For added convenience, the HydraPak 3.0L reservoir comes with an integrated Bail and Carry handle for easy carry on those fill up trips back and forth to the lake or river. Longer hanging straps and a separate carrying bag make hanging and storage fast and easy.
The filter nozzle unscrews to reveal a 43mm, wide-mouth opening that is easy to fill from any lake, river, stream, or faucet. The filter then screws back on and the quick connect hose snaps to the end of the filter cap. A toggle on the hose stops and starts the flow of clean water.
Katadyn’s filter technology safely removes up to 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa to EPA standards using the new 0.1-micron EZ-Clean hollow-fiber filter. The BeFreeTM filter protects users from harmful organisms such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, E-Coli and Salmonella.
The gravity filter is rated for 1,000 liters of filtration. You can purchase a replacement filter cartridge for $25 once the included one has served its time. All sizes of the BeFree water filters include a two-year ‘No Leak Guarantee.’
The Katadyn Gravity BeFree 3.0L retails for $70 and is available now.
