Sawyer Water Solutions

Sawyer's lineup of 0.1-micron water solutions ensure reliable access to water on any outdoor trip. Lightweight and portable, they require no pumping, no chemicals, and no waiting.

One winner will get ALL of the following to cover their water treatment needs:

  • The 2-ounce Mini is Sawyer's lightest and most versatile personal water filtration system. It fits in the palm of your hand and attaches to an included drinking pouch, standard disposable water bottles, and hydration packs. Or use the straw to drink directly from a water source ($24.99).
  • The 3-ounce Squeeze is one of Sawyer's most popular filters. Fill up the pouch at a lake, stream, or river, screw the filter directly onto the pouch, squeeze, and filter out bacteria, protozoa, and cysts ($59.99).
  • The new Select S1 system combines a proprietary foam membrane in a durable silicone bottle with a 0.1-micron hollow fiber filter. The filter weighs just 10 ounces and removes bacteria, protozoa, chemicals, and pesticides ($59.99).
  • The 4L Gravity Filtration System simplifies backcountry hydration and is practically hands-free. Hang it from a tree or any source off the ground and gravity does the work—filtering 2 liters of water in as little as 90 seconds ($149.99)
