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

Complete Water Filtration System 4 Liter

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Gravity filtration is a great way to go for backcountry camping with a group of a least two. A pump can be more convenient for single person, or for during a hike. Scooping water into the dirty bag is not easy. I am never able to fill beyond ~ 2/3rds full. Cleaning system (using sink adapter) is a kludge (e.g. uses zip ties to connect the parts) and cannot withstand reverse pressure. Syringe system may work better, but doesn't come with this kit.

Squeeze Filter System

rated 4 of 5 stars The product works well, but the squeeze process is not as easy as one would hope. Additionally, the bag that comes with it breaks easily — just use an Evernew. I've used this product over multiple weeks in the back country. It works very well by itself, although the process is not easy — the squeeze of the bag does not push much water through, without considerable pressure. The bag from Sawyer breaks easily. I remedied this by using an Evernew bag. As it is slow, it is not the best for a group. Full review

MINI Water Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Sawyer Mini is an excellent lightweight, compact, and reliable solution for filtering water at a very reasonable price. A $25 investment can help reduce the need to pack in all of your water and subsequently lower the weight of your pack. I bought my Mini Squeeze to reduce my pack weight and volume compare to my MSR Miniworks. While I really like the MSR and its ability to pump out of puddles and such, its 16 ounces and size can eat up a lot of space in a small pack. The MSR pump can also be… Full review

Squeeze Filter System

rated 4 of 5 stars Simple, easy to use, and lightweight starting at 2 oz. It makes water filtration a breeze while protecting from potential pathogens. Bought this filter after seeing several buddies using. It is easy to use and by the company's information it kills 99% of (Protozoa, E. Coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerea, Salmonella Typhi) pathogens. You simply fill one of the supplied bags attach the filter and squeeze into another container. The one big negative I have found is that the filter must be used on their… Full review
