|Sawyer MINI Squeeze Water Filtration System
Say goodbye to tedious water pumps or using chemicals!
The Sawyer Squeeze Water Filtratrion System is one of the lightest
weight, quickest, and longest lasting water filters on the market.
The filter itself - 1.3 ounces (37 grams)
A single 16 ounce (.47 Liter) dirty water bladder - .77 ounces (22 grams)
Larger bladders are sold separately below.
A syringe for back-washing water for cleaning- 1.2 ounces (34
A 7 inch (18 cm) straw for drinking from hard sided bottles .22
ounces (6 grams)
The minimum carried weight would be just 1.3
ounces for the filter, plus whichever dirty water bottle you choose to carry.
- The 1.3 ounce Mini water filter can filter up to
100,000 gallons of water. The Hollow Fiber Membrane inside
should be cleaned regularly by back-washing water through the
filter with the included syringe.
By comparison, the original size sawyer filter was 2.5 ounces for
the filter itself.
- The Hollow Fiber Membrane is a .1 Micron filter which exceeds
EPA recommendations for removing harmful bacteria and protozoan
cysts such as E. coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Salmonella, etc.
How to Use It:
- The filter can be screwed on to any Sawyer water bladder, or
on to a standard size soda bottle. Squeeze water into a clean
water bottle, or drink directly by sucking water through the
- Splice the filter into any standard drinking tube, such as a
Platypus hydration system (sold elsewhere) and drink straight
through the filter. Both the input and
output ends of the MINI filter have connectors for tubes. You do
not need an adapter.
Extra 1L and 2L water bladders are available. These are Sawyer's new 9 ply
bags which are thicker and more durable that the originals. Great
for water storage, and lighter and less expensive than comparable
bladders. Caps are included, and since these have a standard thread
pattern, if you lose a cap a regular soda bottle cap fits.
