One of Our Top Rated Backpacking Water Filters Is Only $25 Right Now

Save on Sawyer’s Squeeze filters, bug repellents, and sunscreen during this Amazon sale.

There’s plenty of summertime left for exploring, and if a backpacking trip is on your agenda, you’ll want to pack a trustworthy water filter. Sawyer makes some of the lightest and most affordable options on the market, which are popular picks for first-timers on the trail as well as pros. And for a limited time, you can save up to 32 percent on the Sawyer Squeeze and Sawyer Mini, as well as a few other Sawyer products on Amazon.

We’ve been testing and using the Squeeze this summer, and it’s impressed us enough to earn a spot on our list of the best backpacking water filters. The hollow fiber membrane filter removes bacteria, protozoa, and particulate matter larger than 0.1 micron and can treat up to 100,000 gallons. The lifespans of most competitors, which range from 250 to 525 gallons, pale in comparison.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
