"When I’m out for just a day, I don’t want to waste time pumping water. This 32-ounce dip-and-sip filter let’s me refill in about 10 seconds, then I’m back on the trail. Flow rate is impressive (I didn’t kill myself sucking water through the straw filter), and it takes care of all the protozoa and bacteria I need to worry about in the Northwest. Bonus points: It can be adapted to use with my hydration system, a faucet, or in ultralight mode (where you slurp directly from the water source). $55; 5.5 oz.; sawyer.com."

Sawyer Squeeze is ubiquitous on any long-distance trail, as it is the most popular water filter. Tried, trusted, and true, this 3 oz water filter is a handy gift to anyone planning a backcountry trip.
The Sawyer Squeeze is a time-tested, on-the-go filtration system. This lightweight option is wonderful for personal use, providing great functionality on multi-day excursions and daily adventures in the backcountry.
When we’re backpacking, we tend to focus on two things: the beautiful scenery, and what we’re eating for dinner!
