User Review: Sawyer Squeeze Filter
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $45
Lightweight, versatile, and fast.
- Collapsible bags can be hard to fill
Sawyer does make several attachments that allow the system to be used with traditional bladders, and can be easily used in a gravity feed set up. I think Sawyer even sells this now in a gravity feed setup.
I do keep a small lightweight liquid measure cup in my pack that I use for filling the collapsible bags, which can be hard to fill sometimes (the water pressure keeps them from expanding). If you don't like the bags, the filter can be screwed directly to any generic plastic bottle.
This sytem is lighter, less bulky, and easier to use then hand pump style filters. And unless you are burning wood to boil water, the weight of extra fuel required to boil all your water can really add up on extended trips.
