We're an American outdoor gear company... with a mission.
Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water & injuries. Making outdoor recreational users happy and safe is only half of our goal though.
We want to help change the world.
To do that, we're dedicated to eliminating two of the biggest causes of death in the world: bad water and mosquito bites.
We acquired Coulston Products in 1999, the company that helped develop the use of permethrin, an insect repellent treatment for clothing that provides protection for U.S. troops and outdoor enthusiasts and was adapted for use on mosquito nets now widely used in Africa, saving millions of lives. Sawyer partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) to conduct the underlying studies that led to the widespread use of repellent on mosquito netting.
And we are also the proud developers of point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water. Developed using advanced kidney dialysis filtration technology, our hollow fiber membrane filters are the fastest, easiest, and most cost efficient way to deliver clean water anywhere. They are small, portable, don't require chemicals, a power source, or trained operator for use or maintenance.
We launched the Sawyer Saves campaign to enable individuals to easily join us in bringing clean, safe water quickly and inexpensively to people in need. We've partnered with several prominent humanitarian organizations that are working toward solving the global water crisis and are sharing the inspirational stories of lives changed that we've personally witnessed.
If you want to personally help, there are many ways you can get involved.
