Sawyer Squeeze Filter has been named the winner of Backpacker Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Awards 2012. As the lightest filter on the market, it can be rolled up in a pack and takes up very little space, making it ideal for camping and traveling. Sawyer water filters also offer the highest level of filtration on the market today due to Sawyer’s water filtration technology. Sawyer’s hollow fiber membrane water filters are comprised of U-shaped micro tubes that allow water to enter into their core through tiny micro pores while trapping bacteria and protozoa on the outside. The high volume of these tubes creates a huge surface area, which results in a very high flow rate and less cleaning. Check out the Backpacker Editors’ Choice article and video and see why the Sawyer Squeeze Filter is Backpacker Editors’ Choice of 2012.
