The Sawyer Mini is an excellent water filter for when you are out in the bush training or in the backcountry hiking, backpacking, or camping. We highly recommend Sawyer products to our students when they come to take a survival class. It is important to have a good method for purifying your water that isn't going to slow you down.
This high performance Mini filter fits in the palm of your hand, weighs 2 ounces, and filters up to 100,000 gallons (30 times more than comparable filters).
It attaches to the included drinking pouch, standard disposable water bottles; hydration packs, or use the straw to drink directly from your water source.
This is one of the lightest and most versatile personal filtration systems on the market today. This tiny filter does the same job as many of the larger filters out there, but it is more compact.
Filtering up to 100,000 gallons of water, this may be the last water filter that you buy.
The filter removes 99.99999% of all bacteria (like salmonella) as well as other harmful bacteria which causes cholera, and E. coli, and 99.9999% of all protozoa such as giardia and cryptosporidium. These removal rates equal or exceed other filter options. EPA guidelines allow ten times more protozoa left in the water than Sawyer filters allow.
