Recent Bottle/Inline Water Filter Reviews

Sawyer Select S1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product. Easy to use and serves as a lightweight purification method. Wow, what an easy to use and effective lightweight water purification method. Great for the individual for backpacking and hiking. Full review

Sawyer MINI

rated 5 of 5 stars The go-to for almost any backpacking trip or emergency preparedness. Easy to use, inexpensive, and easy to find stores that sell these. We always bring our on overnight trips, but it's lightweight enough to bring on day trips for emergencies. I have recommended this to a few friends already. We used for a multi-day trip with four people, but I would recommend the regular sized Sawyer if you have more people or faster water flow. Full review

Bota of Boulder Outback Water Filtration System

rated 5 of 5 stars The water bottle itself works pretty well, but throw in a good filter, and you have yourself a great, lightweight water bottle/filter for use in the backcountry. I purchased one of these bottles back in the late 1990s. I don't remember for sure if it was the Bota brand, or not, but I do know that it is the same drop-in cartridge filter and has worked wonderfully. I've used it on multiple backpacking trips with friends over the years. A couple of my friends were so impressed by it, that they went… Full review

Sawyer MINI

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the perfect size for my get-home bag. It's versatile in that it can be used with pouches or screws on to most any bottle. 100,000 gallon life makes it useful for long-term water purification. Priced right! Full review

Sawyer MINI

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for ultralight. I go on bicycle, climbing, diving, and mountaineering excursions frequently. I’m an ultralight nut and I won’t use anything other than a Sawyer for my water purification needs.  Full review

Geigerrig In-Line Virus Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Best I’ve found. I have both types of filters from Aquamira. The first filters up to 50gla. It’s designed for all microbes in North America. The other I use abroad on missions trips.  When used with the Geigerrig hydration system you plug inline and pump the bladder and it pressurizes the bladder. This way you never have to draw the water thru the hose.  I've drank water from some of the dirtiest water through these filters and have yet to get sick. Check out their full line of filtration… Full review

Sawyer Select S1

rated 3 of 5 stars The Sawyer Select series is a new line of purifiers/filters that offers a variety of contaminant removal, depending on one’s needs. All three models remove chemicals to .5 ppb (parts per billion), and pesticides to .01 ppb. The Sawyer Micro Squeeze filter can be used without the purifier to a .1 Micron level. Sawyer’s new Select Series is a kit that will provide potable water from virtually any freshwater source. Although this kit can be easily used in backcountry setting, it is primarily designed… Full review

Katadyn BeFree 0.6L

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a nice simple water filter option that has great flow, is simple to clean, and is very light at only two ounces. The only negative is that the cheap flip top cap selected for use with the BeFree is the same as what you find on a typical disposable water bottle. I've been using a Sawyer Mini water filter for over a year and it initially had adequate flow. It has gradually decreased (and I have been back flushing) to where I decided I wanted something that weighed about the same, but had much… Full review

Sawyer MINI

rated 4 of 5 stars Compact lightweight water filter, easy to use, drink on the go, great for when you are on a river or lake. Used this for two years so far, backpacking and river rafting. Bags last me about one year. Sorry, I didn't keep track of how many gallons I filtered, but I go out on overnighters every month with several weeklong trips throughout the year. I "upgraded" to the 32oz bags when the small ones wore out. One should always carry an extra bag just in case. It's also nice if you have a hike from camp… Full review
