"An adaptable, lightweight, and compact water filter, the Sawyer Mini is a useful personal water treatment system that is very inexpensive. It can be used as a straw or inline in a water reservoir, making it more useful than other straw-style filters. Weighing only 1.4 ounces and costing around $25, this filter easily takes our Best Buy award."

Have you ever wanted to buy an outdoor product and been stumped about which product is best? Or, worse, bought a product only to learn later that you didn’t buy the right one for your needs? I have, and that is why I started OutdoorGearLab.

The OutdoorGearLab mission is simple: to create world’s best outdoor gear reviews.

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.
