The Sawyer water filter is a must have trail item. Water procurement is a top priority outdoor activity that keeps you healthy and comfortable. We require a high-quality water filter for our daypack essentials.
The Sawyer filter is the right size and it has a 100,000 gallon filter rate. It's squeeze pouch and backwash plunger make it a great personal filter option.
We spend a TON of time outdoors. We've used our filters dozens of times when we've run out of water or others around us have under prepared. One time with a Scout troop they all underestimated the hike we were on and consumed all of their water. We were near a stream and quickly refilled all of their containers with the filter/pouch combo.
The high-performance 0.1 Micron absolute inline filter fits in the palm of your hand and weighs just 2 ounces. It removes 99.99999% of all bacteria (salmonella, cholera, and E. coli); removes 99.9999% of all protozoa (such as giardia and cryptosporidium); also removes 100% of microplastics.
In the outdoors finding and purifying water can be a lifesaving activity. This filter should be at the top of the list for first purchases in your adventures.
