This week, five lucky winners will win a Sawyer Tap Filtration System, valued at over $200!

More on the Prize

The Sawyer Tap Filter provides pocket-size peace of mind for all questionable water sources — campgrounds, festivals, events, campervans, and when international travel.

The Sawyer Tap Filter removes biological contaminants, guaranteeing immediate clean drinking water when you need it most. The Tap Filter is convenient for use when traveling, during boil alerts, or in emergencies when safe drinking water is compromised.

The Tap Filter is easy to use and will filter up to 500 gallons of clean drinking water per day, making it an ideal addition to your gear inventory.

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.

Depending on where you travel, you may want to pack bug spray, too. In places like Florida and North Carolina, summers get buggy, and you’ll be happy to have packed a spray on nights when you want to sit on the porch or dine outdoors.

As a veteran of the Iraq War, I found myself struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder from which greatly impacted my mental health. In 2016, I came across the film “Wild,” an adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir about healing by hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).
