Sawyer mini water filtration system


"In my opinion, it’s better in every way than every other water filter I’ve used.” - Jonathan Goldin

The Sawyer MINI Water Filtration System is the ideal minimalist water purification method for any backpacking trip. Working hard as your intestine’s guardian against questionable sources of drinking water, the Sawyer MINI has got your back(side). It offers multiple options to cleanse contaminated water, and is there to make sure you spend more time hiking (and less time squatting).

The Sawyer MINI’s tiny stature, minimal weight, and very affordable price what make it our Budget Pick for the Ultralight Backpacker.

That’s all you need folks.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
