“This trip saw the delivery of our 200th water filter! According to our best estimates, these filters have touched the lives of 1500+ people from Guatemala to Peru, including families, schools, and multiple churches!! As usual, all families were trained on how to assemble, operate, and maintain their filters along with the basics of proper hygiene to help keep them healthy. We had the added blessing of delivering a filter to the local elementary school of 200+ students! Now the students and teachers will have clean, healthy water to drink year round! What a blessing it was to see these children drinking clean water on a hot afternoon! Our vision is to use the church to strengthen the community both physically and spiritually and this was another step towards seeing that come to fulfillment!”

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
