Sawyer Products Mini Water Filter
Weighing 2 ounces and fitting in the palm of your hand, the Sawyer MINI Water Filter provides 0.1 micron absolute filtration — removing 99.99999% of bacteria and 99.9999% of protozoa.*
The size, convenience, and performance of the Sawyer MINI make it perfect for everything from camping with the kids to travelling abroad where tap and bottle water cannot be trusted. It comes with all the accessories you need to use this system in any of the following ways:
- Attach to the included 16-ounce reusable squeeze pouch to drink directly from the filter or squeeze water into a water bottle.
- Screw onto most disposable water bottles.
- Attach inline on a hydration pack — no adapters required.
- Sip from the personal drinking straw and drink directly from the source, or scoop up a bottle of water directly from any freshwater lake, river, or stream.

Frequently Asked Questions
Sawyer's water filters contain a high number of tiny U-shaped hollow fiber microtubes that trap contaminants while allowing decontaminated water to freely pass through at a high flow rate — eliminating the need to store water and reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.
Each filter is certified for absolute microns; that means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 in size. This makes it nearly impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer Mini.
Sawyer filters have been tested by independent and qualified research laboratories and found to remove 7 log (99.99999%) of bacteria and 6 log (99.9999%) of protozoa, exceeding US EPA standards. The filter does not remove chemicals, dissolved solids, or viruses. However, viruses are very rarely found in North America or when travelling to foreign cities.
For longer filter life, you should backwash and sanitize the filter after every outing. The Mini is backflushable almost indefinitely, and there are no expensive cartridges to replace, ever. Sawyer recommends sanitizing the filter before prolonged storage.
Even with very high particulate/turbid water you should get 5 to 10 gallons through the filter. If this is not enough water for your trip, you should plan on field backwashing your filter.

Before returning to Alaska decades ago, on a then remote portion of the Appalachian Trail I cautioned my hiking partner when we refilled water from a clear stream that he needed to treat it: You never know what is upstream. He walked about 15 yards and found a deer carcass in the stream.
This is the best I have found.
I have used these for several years. I keep one in each of my family members packs, my packs and vehicle kits.
