Backpacker Magazine Gear Review: Sawyer 4 Way Water Filter
"A 32-ounce dip-and-sip filter that lets you refill in about 10 seconds... Flow rate is impressive (I didn't kill myself sucking water through the straw filter), and it takes care of all the protozoa and bacteria I need to worry about in the Northwest. Bonus points: It can be adapted to use with my hydration system, a faucet, or in ultralight mode (where you slurp directly from the water source)."
Backpacking North Gear Talk - Sawyer Water Filter
"My search for the perfect filter is finally at an end... The nice thing about the Sawyer is that it can be used in three different ways. You're really spoiled for choice. In practice I found it to be excellent -- fast, effective, and hassle free. It weighs next to nothing--about 2 oz dry--and is very flexible. I'm very happy. It's so nice to just sit and watch the filter doing it's job instead of getting aggravated by the irritating pump."
Gear Patrol Sawyer Squeeze Water Filters: Pack Light, Drink Right
"The Sawyer Squeeze Filter System is a welcomed new alternative in a field typically limited to iodine tablets, filter pumps, or good old fashion boiling. Weight and space are the main benefits of the system's smart design, since the included pouches are easily collapsible and weigh next to nothing. Avoiding dysentery and packing light seems like a winning combination to us."
Seattle Backpackers Magazine Sawyer 7/6/B Water Filter
"When I encountered Sawyer's products I got a bonus along with all those features: price. Sawyer has come out with some amazing inline filters that due to their design can take 99.9999% of those baddies out of your drinking water and do it while you drink through it... Sawyer has thought a lot about the backpacker/traveller's needs. Whatever your favourite form of water filtration is, you need to check Sawyer out. They have a wide variety of options and their hollow fiber membrane filters are hard to beat for convenience, quality, price and ease of use."

First Aid Kit Field Test
"We tried the Sawyer First Aid in a Pouch. The Sawyer Level 700 first aid kit has every medical item needed for larger groups or long trips. And it doesn't stop with just frequently used items, but also covers the items you might need for bigger emergencies. This kit gives high value for its price."
Survival Cache Use a Sawyer Extractor for Snake and Insect Bites
"The Sawyer Extractor is the best first aid application for poisonous snake bites as well as insect bites and stings. While it is prominently known as a first aid measure for a dangerous snake bite, it is equally effective for relief from mosquito bites or bee stings... With such a great tool available there is no reason not to have several in your gear."
