Sawyer is Proud to Announce a New Partnership with Leave No Trace.

Safety Harbor, FL - April 6th, 2015 - Sawyer, the leader in outdoor protection, is proud to announce a new partnership with the nonprofit organization Leave No Trace.  Their mission is “to protect the outdoors by teaching and inspiring people to enjoy it responsibly.”  Sawyer is proud to be able to work with an organization that teaches people of all ages how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly while reducing environmental impact.  We here at Sawyer also want to encourage the appreciation of parks, public lands, and protected areas in the United States and hope ensure the same opportunity is available for generations to come.

Leave No Trace is a member driven ethical program that operates under a very clear umbrellas of principles and goals that Sawyer embraces and hopes to help advocate.     In additional to the partnership and the advocacy, Sawyer is committed to ongoing improvements in products and environmental considerations as the company and relationship with Leave No Traces grows.  Sawyer will be donating various products to their organization and will work with Leave No Trace to help raise additional funds to support their program.

Sawyer has been in the outdoor industry for over 30 years and the product categories have expanded to include water filtration, insect repellent, sunscreen, and first aid.  The diverse product line of simple to use but very technical products are all geared to not only keep you safe from diseases and medical issues, but also to make the outdoor experience easier and more enjoyable.   Sawyer water filters are used globally because they are simple, fast, and long lasting.

These robust filters are reducing the need to boil water both domestically and internationally where clean water is an even greater issue.   Sawyer is very proud to be able to reduce deforestation while also increasing the quality of life through the reduction of waterborne diseases to people to people all over the world.

News from Sawyer

We are More Than an Outdoor Company. Water Filtration, Insect Repellent, Sunscreen & First Aid, from the Backcountry to the Backyard.


My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

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).
