We previewed this one at the Summer Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, and knew it was going to be a home run. We've long been fans of Sawyer's water filters as they're extremely small/packable (perfect for tucking into hydration packs on long backcountry runs), reliable, fast and easy to use.

This year, they released a 'mini' 2-oz version of the original 3.5-oz filter that can be used in a variety of ways--to drink directly from streams, attached to a bottle's mouth, embedded inline in your hydration reservoir tube, or with the 16 fl. oz reusable Sawyer pack it comes with. Its hollow-fiber membrane offers a high flow rate, so filtering only takes a matter of seconds. Unlike other water filtration systems, they're infinitely backwashable (no need to purchase cartridges over time) with the provided syringe and they don't require batteries. At $25 for 0.1-micron filter that removes 99.99999% of bacteria, the Sawyer Mini is an absolute steal.

Ticks, mosquitoes and biting bugs are a top reason to ruin anyone’s fun in the great outdoors, but after using Sawyer Permethrin to treat my boots, clothes and gear, I was amazed by the results.

If you don’t like spraying on bug repellent, you might want to try the Sawyer Insect Repellent Lotion. It has a 20% picaridin formula that you simply rub onto your skin, and it provides protection against mosquitoes and ticks for up to 14 hours and protection against flies, gnats and chiggers for up to eight hours.
