Sawyer Mini vs. LifeStraw

What's the best option for your go bag?

We are taking a look at the Sawyer Mini vs. LifeStraw to see which is the best option for your bug-out bag.

Portable water filters are incredibly handy to have when you find yourself in the middle of nowhere with an empty water bottle or CamelBak. Whether you’re in the midst of an emergency situation, out on a particularly long hike, or camping, they can help prevent dehydration and water-borne illnesses. Portable water filters purify your water by eliminating pathogens and toxic compounds, leaving behind clean drinkable water. Arguably, the two most popular filters on the market are the Sawyer Mini and the LifeStraw. But which one should you choose?

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
