It’s that time of year when we come to celebrate the moms of the world, but buying a gift can be challenging.  So, we’ve chosen a few stand-out items here – all ones we use or would purchase ourselves – to help with decision-making. So, for all the moms and women who enjoy the outdoors, check out these ten gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2022 on Sunday, May 8th.

Sawyer MINI Water Filtration System

Bring this lightweight, versatile filtration system on your next outdoor adventure with mom. The MINI Water Filtration System is perfect for hiking, camping, travel, and as an emergency preparedness tool.

The MINI is truly that size as it fits in the palm of your hand (at a weight of only 2 oz) and helps filter out bacteria, protozoa, and microplastics from the water while you’re on the go. In fact, the technology found in the microfibrous tubes that are part of the filter is similar to that used in medical dialysis.

Drink the clean water provided through the MINI by attaching it to the included drinking pouch and use the straw provided. Or, you can connect it to your favorite hydration pack or screw it onto standard disposable water bottles.

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
