The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is one of the most reliable, versatile and lightest filtration systems today. Only weighing just over 2 ounces, the equipment perfectly fits in the palm of your hand. It allows users to enjoy a protozoa and bacteria free filtration, making it the perfect camping, scouting or emergency preparedness gear for the entire family.
- High-Performance Fiber Membrane- The membrane is part of the inline filter that allows maximum filtration of bacteria and protozoa in water.
- Lightweight Filtration System- It only weighs 2 ounces.
- Extra Accessories- It comes with a reusable squeeze pouch, cleaning plunger to maintain its cleanliness and a 7-inch drinking straw. Hydration pack tubing is sold seperately.
- It can filter up to 99.9% of all bacteria from water such as salmonella, E.coli, giardia, and cryptosporidium, which are the leading causes of cholera and other water-borne diseases.
Why the Mini Stands Out
First, the Sawyer Mini Water Filtration system is rated up to 100,000 gallons of water. When compared with the LifeStraw estimated at 1,000 gallons and the Katadyn Hiker Pro rated at only 300 gallons, it is clear that the Mini is one versatile and durable filtration system. Such versatility coming from a more affordable water filter makes the Sawyer Mini water filter a great investment for backpackers, survivalists and more.
Additionally, the Mini comes with an efficient cleaning system. It has a syringe that only requires one to backflush in the field when it becomes clogged with dirt or when it has a reduced output. The washer dose not interfere with the backflushing, and small debris do not get stuck in the filtering membrane.
The Mini is small and less weighty compared to Katadyn and LifeStraw water filtering equipment. It is ideal for lightweight backpackers since it offers a scoop and go experience. You only need to attach the filter and hike with it, at your backpack’s side pocket.
