“A lifetime of water at hand.”

Our most popular filter just got smaller and lighter. The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is rated to 0.1 micron absolute, weighs only 2 ounces, and filters up to 100,000 gallons!

  • +Does the Sawyer filter remove taste, chemicals and heavy metals from water?

    Taste

    The Sawyer filter removes taste that comes from bacteria, dirt, and green matter.

    Chemicals

    The Sawyer filter does NOT remove iron, sulfur, other chemicals, or simple compounds. Taste can be masked by using flavor additives like Gatorade or crystal light (filter needs to be cleaned immediately after using them).

    Heavy Metals

    The Sawyer filters are not made with charcoal. While other portable filters have charcoal, they lack in amount of media and adequate dwell time. Therefore, they only remove small amounts of heavy metals, pesticides, etc. (when used in real life applications). Try using better sources of water, if possible.

  • +Do you have more information about Sawyer’s Label Claim and Million Gallon Guarantee?

    We have independent lab tests using EPA protocols and information about our Million Gallon Guarantee that are available on our Downloads Page.

  • +Filter Compatibility

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter with Water Bottles

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter can also be used on water bottles when you are unsure whether or not it is safe to drink the water.

    The Sawyer Inline Filter

    This convenient filter can be used as an inline filter on a hydration pack, a pre-filter for an existing pump system, with the provided faucet adapter, or with a gravity bag.

  • +How fast should the water come out of my filter?

    Flow rates

    Flow rates vary depending on how clean the filter is and how well you cleaned the filter. Altitude also affects the flow rates (the higher you go the slower the flow. Also, the PointZEROTWO™ filter flows much slower that the Point ONE.

  • +How do I care for my filter during freezing weather?

    Before initial wetting

    Filter is safe from freezing temperatures if it has never been wetted.

    After initial wetting

    While there is no definitive way to tell if a filter has been damaged due to freezing, Sawyer recommends replacing your filter if you suspect that it has been frozen.

    During trips

    If you are in freezing temperatures, we recommend that you store your filter in your pocket or close to your person so that your body heat can prevent freezing. THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR A FROZEN FILTER.

Squeeze Filter Helpful Hints

Sawyer Mini Water Filter

Sawyer MINI Water Filter is rated 4.8182 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best filtration system for the price! I purchased this specifically for a mission trip. We knew the location had questionable water. I was thrilled at how simple it was to use this product. Furthermore it was evident that it actually worked (The water was brown when we filled up the bladder), and after gently squeezing the water through, it was crystal clear and clean. Furthermore after a week of use I back filled it per the instructions, and you would not believe how much silt and debris was filtered. I have informed all of my friends about this great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best I have Katadyn's best filter (Pocket) which is great, but cumbersome and expensive. And now I stumbled upon this Sawyer filter which is small, lightweight, lasts way longer and is a WHOLE lot cheaper and it actually filters to a finer degree than mentioned filter. A No-Brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Travel I bought this to use while camping in Utah but ended up using it for travel to the Carribean with wife, an infant, and 2 children. It gave me peace of mind when preparing formula for our baby as well as drinking water for 9 and 11 year old. We saved lots of money during the trip and at airports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sawyer Mini I just this water filter just about a month ago. It is very small, but it is a power house compared to any other on the market today(my opinion). The size, weight, and price this is a must have. Very easy to use,clean an to store. It comes in a small package with everything in it to use and clean it. I have it in my B.O.B( Bug Out Bag) bag. It does not take up any room or add weight to my bag. Hurricane is just around the corner. If the water stops flowing, I still have a way to get safe water to drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for your money I take mine with me everywhere. Hiking and camping especially. Great to keep in the car too. The versatility of the Sawyer can't be beat. Other straw type filters that I've used before don't have the capability of adapting to other types of containers and or bottles. Another big sell for me was not only the compact size but also the light weight of the Sawyer. Keep making great products guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from all in one best filter Very versatile filter can not be beat. I love mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Female thread outflow end too! Being able to use this as the filter in a gravity system when at camp and then as a straw when trying to limit the water you carry, is fantastic. If it only had female threading on both ends, it would get five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Filter Revolution Begins! As a retail salesman, I can't endorse anything unless it's quality, affordable, and useless. The Mini filter is all of that and then some! Sawyer, you guys knocked this one out of the park!
