Katadyn BeFree wins OutDoor INDUSTRY GOLD AWARD


The new Katadyn BeFree 1.0L water filter wins the OutDoor INDUSTRY GOLD AWARD 2017 in the category „Camping equipment“. The international panel of outdoor experts was particulary impressed by the BeFree's functionality, its choice of materials, its ultralight weight and small pack size. 

The BeFree Series has new members in its family of products with the the BeFree 1.0L. Its larger volume enables lightweight transport of safe drinking water on longer outings – whether hiking or traveling – where there are no apparent water sources. This water filter weighs just 63 grams. It can filter up to 2 liters per minute for use. The 1.0L version will be available at retail in January 2018.
