140 Katadyn Combi and 70 Optimus Nova for French mountain infantry
Soldiers in the “Groupement de Commandos de Montagne” (GSM) are the elite of the French mountain infantry, at home in the high mountains and in extreme environments. Katadyn France early this year delivered 140 Katadyn Combi water filters and 70 Optimus Nova stoves to the mountain commando troops. When in the field, soldiers must be able to rely 100% on their equipment. The Katadyn Combi filter is part of the "Endurance" series from Katadyn. These products are especially long-lasting and durable, offering peace of mind in extreme conditions. The Optimus Nova has been used for years on expeditions. The single nozzle construction guarantees simplicity in use and enables use of the Optimus Nova all over the world in any conditions.
