"My search for the perfect filter is finally at an end... The nice thing about the Sawyer is that it can be used in three different ways. You're really spoiled for choice. In practice I found it to be excellent -- fast, effective, and hassle free. It weighs next to nothing--about 2 oz dry--and is very flexible. I'm very happy. It's so nice to just sit and watch the filter doing it's job instead of getting aggravated by the irritating pump."

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

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
