More on the Brand
Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered advanced protection solutions against sun, bugs, unclean water, and injuries — everything from first-aid kits developed for wilderness use to topical insect repellents that use time-released liposome technology. Sawyer is specifically dedicated to eliminating two of the biggest causes of death in the world: bad water and mosquito bites.
Sawyer developed point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water, the brand says. Produced using advanced kidney dialysis filtration technology, Sawyer’s hollow-fiber membrane filters are a fast, easy, and cost-efficient way to deliver clean water anywhere. They are small, portable, and don’t require chemicals, a power source, or a trained operator for use or maintenance.
