Squeeze Filter System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very portable and lightweight, easy to use and great for travelers. Scenario: Only water source at camp was from a stream and second time using filter. I filled up my bottle, attached filter to the top, and drank. It was also handy refilling our water bladders and took only a few minutes to refill a 2L and 3L bag. Tip: I put my Sawyer filter in a ziplock bag to prevent the filter from leaking excess water. Shake it out throughly before stuffing it in your bag or attach the squeeze bag to the end… Full review

MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very good little filter. I have used this filter on numerous backpacking trips and it has worked well every time. Great little unit.

Extractor Pump Kit

No studies… Full review

MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hassle-free water filtering on the go. The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is imported to Europe by a German company named Care Plus. Same filter, different brand. Just saying...The package includes the filter (duh..), the cleaning syringe, the straw and a 0.5L water bag. There is no smell whatsoever from the filtered water no matter from what component it goes through. I personally like to fill in the included bag and then squeeze the filtered water into my hydration bladder. The flow is excellent if… Full review

MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars At 2 oz, this mini filter is a soloist's lightweight dream. No waiting for tablets anymore. Effectiveness: The product is a particulate filter and does not claim to kill pathogens like a tablet. It's claim of effectiveness is pretty high: "0.1-micron filter physically removes 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli; removes 99.9999% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium".¬† I find those claims to be reassuring.The compact Sawyer Mini Filter Speed and Efficiency:… Full review
