User Review: Sawyer Water Filter Squeeze Pouch
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40
Light, easy to use, we came up with a few solutions to some of the downfalls Weak bags and dripping bags in rivers.
- Pack into small area
- Easy to use
- Sawyer bags are weak and break
- Dipping hand in to COLD stream to fill
We found the Filter Squeeze Pouch system easy to use, But dripping the bag in to the cold stream first thing in the morning was not fun. We found storing the system into a 1 gallon heavy duty ziplock bag allowed us to fill the bag and pour the water into the filter bag.
The other downfall is we have had the squeeze bags break. Sawyer does not support this failure of their product and will not listen to your complaints... We found the Platypus bags screw right on to the filter (we also experimented with others and found some 1 ltr. bags at the "dollar store" which were stronger and worked fine with the system... )
Bottom line: Highly recommend the filter.. fast easy and light and small.. but trash their bags and you'll be thankful you did.
