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

Squeeze Filter System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product that meets all of my backpacking needs. Amazing customer service. I've had my Sawyer filter system for just over a year. It's held up well, through two seasons of backpacking. I personally love the space and light weight it offers.

Squeeze Filter System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great filtration system. The system was put to the test in the waters of Lake Michigan. After filling and taking a big long drink, I noticed a couple of dead ducks floating nearby. I am still alive and happy to report this little filter works awesome. Cloudy murky water turns into crystal clear goodness with not a hint of foulness as the water hits your taste buds. Backwashing is simple and quick and the instructions are printed right on the filter. Very easy to use, very easy to care for. A negative… Full review

MINI Water Filter

rated 5 of 5 stars Worked great, took up very little pack space, very light, easy to use. I used this on a two-day (20-mile) trip down the Eleven Point River in SE MO. I usually use chlorine tablets to purify my water in the backcountry, but waiting 4 hours is a bit inconvenient so I decided to try a Sawyer Mini. Plain and simple, it worked great. The water flowed through it quite easily without a lot of squeezing and struggling. The reviews that I read complained about the water bag that comes with the filter being… Full review

Squeeze Filter System

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Portable, effective, and lightweight, this system was a good companion to a water bladder carried within my backpack. Best for hiking and backpacking. The Sawyer Squeeze water filtration system claims to remove 99.9 percent of bacteria and protozoa. The filter is built-in and includes a removable push/pull cap, so water can be sprayed directly into the mouth or into another container from the pouch or a bottle with a similar cap. I bought this product specifically for use on the Chilkoot Trail which… Full review
