Compact, versatile, fast to use, lightweight, and filters smaller microbes than others. A must-have for backcountry use.
First of all, make sure to NEVER let your filter get below freezing if it has ever been used, no matter how well you think at may have dried out. Freezing can damage the tiny holes in the filter and it will no longer be effective against pathogens. If you are using it for cold weather, always keep i...

Lightweight and convenient backpacking water filter

I love the Sawyer filter - it's extremely light and convenient. I use it to refill the water bladder in my backpack and...

simply the best - great customer service
I received mine with a small puncture at the base of the largest bag in the box. I sent it back to Sawyer, and they sent me back TWO new bags along with four 1oz sample-size bottles of sun screen and bug repellant. They said it was there way of apologizing for the bad product in the box. Man that is...
