Sawyer Tap Filter

The best filter for car camping of 2021.

For camping destinations where water from the spigot isn’t potable, this filter is an easy cleaning solution. It screws on to most exterior-threaded nozzles, and its .1-micron, hollow-fiber filter weeds out bacteria and protozoa (but not viruses, so check your destination before taking it abroad). We were able to produce 2 liters of clean water in 3 minutes at a cabin near Lanigan, Saskatchewan. The hose attachment easily fills jerrycans and reservoirs, making this device ideal for large groups. Note: Like any other hollow-fiber filter, freezing will cause the pores to expand and become useless, so keep it warm.
