Topical Treatment

Adios, bugs. Sawyer’s 20% Picaridin insect repellent is more effective at repelling biting flies than DEET. Safe for use on the whole family and during pregnancy, the non-greasy Picaridin offers all day protection, has a pleasant low citrus odor, and won’t damage plastics or synthetic coatings.

Gear Treatment

Your next trip just got better. For use on clothing, tents, sleeping bags, and other outdoor gear, Sawyer Permethrin is more than just an insect repellent — it actually kills ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, chiggers, mites, and more than 55 other kinds of insects. Simply wearing Permethrin treated shoes and socks makes you more than 70x less likely to get bitten by a tick.

Water Systems

Ensuring access to clean water in the backcountry or anywhere in the world, Sawyer offers the most advanced water filtration system for on-the-go use. Our filters are lightweight and intuitive; no pumping, no chemicals, no waiting – just drink. And while other companies use hollow-fiber membrane filters, our filters are unmatched in performance.

Stay Protected from Lyme

As the geographic range of ticks expands, so does their overall population and prevalence of diseases– from the backwoods where we hike, hunt, fish, and camp to the backyard where our family and pets play. Steer clear of the ‘Lyme Journey’ and pretreat your clothing and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.

Environmental and Social Responsibility

Sawyer Water Filtration Systems are not only increasing the health and financial well being of families all over the world, they are also decreasing the amount of trees that are being cut down for boiling water. With an average family size of 6 people, a single Sawyer Filter can save 239-478 trees per year! 

Sawyer International

We’re more than an outdoor company. Sawyer water filters are being used by over a million of people in over 80 developing countries for their daily clean water needs. Our easy to use, effective systems are the most commonly used portable filtration system in natural disasters, refugee camps, and by non-profits doing development work.

The use of our filters reduces diarrhea by over 90%, recapturing work and school days lost, while saving water and associated medical costs. In an ongoing study we have in rural Fuji, these saved costs is over 12.5% of the average yearly income! The best part? Our filters are trusted over time – even after 10+ years of daily use, they continue to provide clean water to homes across the globe.

With the help of Sawyer filters, Liberia will be the first developing country with clean water, border to border, in every household by December of 2020. Sawyer filters will bring clean water to the last 20% of rural Liberia everyone said was impossible to reach.
