Fast, Fresh Water: Hiking Lady’s Sawyer TAP Water Filter Review

What good is water unless it is drinkable?   We all need reliable, safe drinking water, whether or not we are at home, hiking in the backcountry, or at a campground.  Between the covid-19 pandemic this past year, the west coast wildfires, storms and boil alerts in Texas, emergency preparedness should be the top item on your list.  That’s why you should read my Sawyer TAP Water Filter review!

Sawyer’s Water Filters

Sawyer is a well-known outdoor products company that has been in business since 1984. For those of you not familiar with their water filters, Sawyer makes a wide range of them, from their Mini Water Filter to their Personal Water Bottle Filter and many more. They recently developed a new model called the Sawyer TAP water filter.  I had the chance to test it out, so read on to get my full review of the Sawyer TAP water filter!

Hiking Lady’s Review of the Sawyer TAP Water Filter


As many of you know, in mid-2020 the Hiking Lady family made a big improvement to our outdoor recreation – we purchased a Winnebago Solis camper van, making pandemic camping (and hiking adventures) extremely safe, comfortable, and fun. (See Hiking Lady: Camper Van Life). With two boys ages 5 and under, it makes it way easier to travel and explore, all while staying very “socially distanced”. To fill up the fresh water tank of the camper van, we use an inline water filter. However, how about that time when our water pump broke when it froze…we had to head home. The Sawyer TAP water filter sure would have been handy on that trip.

Personally, I use Sawyer’s Fabric Treatment–available in pump or spray–for my hunting and hiking clothes.

Casserly’s favorite water treatment is a squeeze filter like the SAWYER SQUEEZE filtration system ($29, sawyer.com), which screws onto the included flasks or a plastic water bottle. Squeeze filters are ideal for individual use. They’re light and inexpensive, and you can drink the water immediately through the filter.

While young babies should be protected with clothing and netting (not chemicals), older babies and children should use a suitable repellent to help avoid bites, discomfort, and insect-borne illnesses.
