Vario: Various Ways to Disappoint
Comments about Katadyn Vario Water Filter System:
I've used my Vario on many backcountry trips in various locations across the western US. I purchased it because I liked the idea of having the option of prolonging my filter life with a ceramic option that kept my cost down when my need for water wasn't urgent enough to require the fastest flow rate. UNFORTUNATELY, the seals Katadyn uses in the switch mechanism (the whole body swivels to switch between filter options) seems to cause a vacuum within the filter that makes the lever impossible to move. It is easily remedied by twisting the "switch" and opening the filter with a loud "POP", but another 5 pumps bring the same results. It works well when in "Fast Flow" mode without the ceramic filter, but that defeats the whole purpose of this filter.
I'm now on my second Vario with the same issue. It still "works" in one mode, but is much bulkier and more expensive than other options out there that would deliver the same results.
