The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is a second generation filter that may be the lightest and most versatile personal filtration system from Sawyer. With a total field weight of 2 ounces it fits in the palm of your hand. This tiny filter does the same job that the Sawyer PointOne filter does but now in a more compact, personal size. The Sawyer Mini filter is perfect for the whole thing from camping with the kids to traveling in a foreign country where tap and bottle water can’t be trusted.
The filter gets rid of 7 log (99.99999%) of all bacteria (like salmonella) in addition to other harmful bacteria which causes cholera and E. coli and 6 log (99.9999%) of all protozoa such as giardia and cryptosporidium. These removal rates equal or exceed other filter options. EPA guidelines allow ten times more protozoa left in the water than Sawyer PointOne filters allow.
Attach the Mini to the included drinking pouch, use the included straw to drink in an instant from your water source, connect it to hydration pack tubing (sold one by one), or screw it onto standard disposable bottles (28 mm thread). The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is rated as much as 100,000 gallons. It comes with 16-ounce reusable squeeze pouch, 7-inch drinking straw, and cleaning plunger.
Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the most productive, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries — the whole thing from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.
