Sawyer Products Mini Water Filtration System
A portable water filter will make for an awesome gift for any outdoor enthusiast or traveler! The water filtration technology that’s only recently become widely available is seriously impressive.

The Sawyer Mini is a 0.1 Micron absolute hollow fiber membrane inline filter that you can bring ANYWHERE. It’s only two ounces and fits in the palm of your hand so it’s a great hiking and travel companion.
If you’re shopping for an outdoorsman or woman in particular, they’ll love the liberation this filter gives them from packing heavy water loads! An array of accessories is also included with this purchase making it truly a great value!

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
