Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best for solo use. Can easily be used as an online filter on a Camelbak type system, although drinking then requires more effort. The Sawyer Mini is my first water purification system, although I have used and seen many others that fellow hikers have had. The Sawyer Mini is a great device that can be used at base camp for filling water bottles or attached to a large water bladder for community use. I had first tried this out as an in-line filter on my Camelbak, but quickly found out that did not… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Very lightweight, small to pack, and best of all very low effort required to replenish your water supply. Low maintenance and low effort are a must while backpacking. Filter performs as advertised. Water quality was never an issue, filter backflow was very easy to do. I downsized from the full size Sawyer filter to the Mini to save space more than anything else and had same level of satisfaction.  Have used other pump style filters and find this much easier and faster. Refill time on a liter of… Full review

CamelBak Groove

rated 5 of 5 stars A wonderful product to help you go Green and reduce the carbon footprint. Great for brisk walking, urban hiking, and shorter day hikes. Would highly recommend it for everyone to help reduce the purchase of bottled water. I have also read many on-line reviews that you can take it empty with you through the TSA checkpoint and refill it once you pass through the checkpoint and avoid getting ripped off by over-priced concessionaires at the airport. I was fortunate enough to be a winner of the Camelbak… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars I like the ease of filtering and drinking. Never thought I would use a filter. Expensive, bulky, and subject to clogging, at least this is what I thought. I have been reading the blogs of a couple of AT thru hikers and the Sawyer Mini seemed to be a standard issue item. When I reordered chlorine dioxide drops I bought one of these to try. It was real nice being able to drink water at every wet spot and stream. My son and I carried used soda bottles and would fill them at a stream or small trickle… Full review

LifeSaver Systems LifeSaver Bottle

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I received my bottle yesterday and I read the instructions and primed it. The bottle works very well. It doesn't explode or choke your kids and you won't void the warranty by filling it with orange juice — provided you RTFM! Great product, somewhat expensive investment, but I guess you have to pay for the technology. Read the instruction manual and it will work for you. I have not field tested the bottle yet, so no comment on practical use. Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars The Sawyer filter is a great option for filtering water for many lifestyles. Whether you are a worried about the water you drink everyday, or just an avid hiker/backpacker/adventurer who needs an affordable, reliable, and reliable solution for clean drinking water, the Sawyer Mini Filter is for you. For about 20$, you can filter up to 100,000 gallons of water! I have one in my backpack, and my car. I use mine all the time for camping trips, and I highly recommend it to friends. The Sawyer filter… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 3 of 5 stars A viable option to lighten your load. Solo hikers will enjoy the convenience and protection this filter provides. The Sawyer Mini is  probably the most viable filter option out there for the solo hiker. I use my filter in an "inline" configuration. I have used this filter on three overnight trips and one (4-day) multi-day trip. The Pros: This filter has not yet completely clogged. I am still able to get filtered flow from it.  The filter is compact enough to thread through my hydration port on… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The filter is very lightweight, along with the straw, bag, and cleaning plunger it comes with. It's good for backpacking, and filters up to 100,000 gallons of water. The Sawyer Mini is a very good water filter. It's reliable, and very lightweight. It removes 99.9999% of bacteria such as salmonella, cholera, and E.coli, and 99.9999% of protozoa like giardia without using chemicals. You can filter the water by filling up the bag with your water source, then attaching the filter and squeezing it out. Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this filter. Started as a backup that I kept in my pack. I now use it all the time. Great value. This is a great filter for use as a backup or a main. Compact and lightweight. Includes one bag that rolls up or you can attach the filter to a regular water bottle. The water tastes great. Can squeeze water into a pot if needed. I use it on all my day and multi day hikes. Not sure how it would be on a thru-hike, but I will take it and try it when I do the AT. Although, I will have drops just in… Full review
