User Review: Sawyer Squeeze Filter
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70
It is a very compact, lightweight, easy to use, effective water filter system. It comes with 3 different sizes of compact water pouches, but it can also fit most plastic drink bottles. It has an easy to use cleaning / maintenance procedure. In the US, you will find it is effective at cleaning most backcountry water sources.
- Small and lightweight
- Compatible with most plastic drink bottles
- Trying to fill the small opening of the pouches can be difficult
It is recommended that the water be pre-screened to reduce debris so the filter element does not clog as quickly. If the filter becomes difficult to squeeze water through, the cleaning procedure is simple with the included syringe plunger. This filter creates drinkable water instantly (no waiting chemical treatments).
