We're honored to be featured in Backpacker Magazine's 10 Essentials list!

Be sure to pick up a copy of the April 2014 Gear Guide Issue to see what else they recommend but here is what they had to say about the Sawyer Mini Water Filter:

"This pipsqueak, measuring not much larger than a roll of quarters and weighing less than a Snickers Bar, proved itself on multiple trips in Utah and Colorado. It's built to be installed inline on a hydration system- just slice the hose, insert the filter, and you're done.
"Delicious drinking water without any hassle or the arm-fatigue of pumping" says one tester. If you eschew hydrations systems, the Mini screws onto a standard size soda bottle or any of Sawyer's soft-sided bags (16 to 64 oz : $8-$9 for three packs). It even comes with a straw for sucking water straight from the source."

Another option is a physical filter, which takes out any debris and bacteria to make water completely safe to drink. Mejia recommends the Sawyer Squeeze, which comes with a fill bag and is incredibly easy to use.
