Product Description

The Mini Water Filter is the lightest and most versatile personal filtration system from Sawyer. It weighs 2 ounces and fits in the palm of your hand. While incredibly small and convenient, this filter was tested to 10 million parts of bacteria and one million parts of protozoa without a single breakthrough, the highest testing level for filtration.

The Sawyer Mini can filter up to 100,000 gallons of water, up to thirty times more volume than comparable filtration systems.

The size, convenience, and performance of the Sawyer Mini filter make it perfect for everything from camping with the kids to traveling abroad where tap and bottle water cannot be trusted.

Absolute Micron Filtering Technology Makes The Difference

"U" shaped micro-tubes allow water to enter into their core

The proprietary element of Sawyer’s water filters is comprised of tiny "U" shaped micro-tubes that allow water to enter into their core through tiny micro-pores. The high number of those tiny tubes and their surface area allows the filter to have one of the fastest flow rates in the world. This high flow rate eliminates the need to store water, reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.

Each filter is certified for absolute microns; that means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 in size. This makes it nearly impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer Mini filter. Sawyer filters have been tested by independent and qualified research laboratories and found to remove 7 log (99.99999%) of bacteria and 6 log (99.9999%) of protozoa, exceeding US EPA standards. The filter does not remove chemicals, dissolved solids, or viruses. However, viruses are very rarely found in North America or when traveling to foreign cities.

Sawyer's revolutionary filter technology is in use by hundreds of groups, including non-profit organizations, relief agencies, and governments in more than 70 countries around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know when the filter is full?

The flow of water will slow down. However, it will never fail. Once the filter starts to slow down simply backwash it and it will be as good as new.

Is this good for kids at camp?

Yes! It is easy and safe. It couldn't be more perfect! Its small, lightweight and priced so that everyone can have their own filter. It doesn't need all the small parts and accessories of first generation filters to move from a hydration pack to a bottle to a pouch. It has it all!

Can I put the filter inline on my hydration pack?

Yes, connectors for your hydration pack hose are built into the filter.

Can I put the filter on a different / smaller bottle?

As long as the bottle has a "standard" thread you can. Most soda and disposable water bottles made worldwide use this thread.

How often should I clean the filter?

For longer filter life, you should backwash and sanitize the filter after every outing.

If I backwash it, will the bacteria in the city water grow in the filter?

Sawyer recommends sanitizing the filter before storing it. If you backwash the filter and then use it, bacteria from the city water will not grow.

Is it going to get clogged while I'm out on a trip?

Even with very high particulate /turbid water you should get 5 to 10 gallons through the filter. If this is not enough water for your trip you should either plan on field backwashing your filter.

Cleaning and Maintenance Instructions

Product Description

The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is a second generation filter that is 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. Filtering up to 100,000 gallons of water, this may be the last water filter that you buy. The Sawyer Mini filter is perfect for everything from camping with the kids to traveling abroad where tap and bottle water cannot be trusted. The filter removes 7 log (99.99999%) of all bacteria (like salmonella) as well as 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.

It's super lightweight, it's small, it's easy to use, and it works!
R Sanchez
You can also connect the filter to the two liter bottles, but it is easier to squeeze from the bag.

Great package for your BOB, camping gear, car or emergency supply kit.

So first off, let me say I ordered this with my Prime account, and it comes with free 2-day shipping...it got here in 1 day. I immediately took it out in the backcountry for a day hike with the dog to give it a try/test in the field.

We made it to a nice frozen shoulder of the Rattlesnake Creek in Missoula, MT. The temp was below freezing, i'de say 30F, or somewhere around there. I chipped through an ice shelf on the creek and dunked the bag into the ice cold water. Filling it was easy but I can see some wishing it came with a bigger bag because it doesn't look like much when the bag is filled. I will probably use a clear Platypus bag I have in the future, and carry the included Sawyer Squeeze Bag as a backup.

Anyway, I screwed the filter onto the bag, tipped it upside down and water came out with a very effortless squeeze. After I got done laughing about how simple this was, I gave Yoshi a drink as well (my English Bulldog). He also took to it well, as he's a big fan of drinking from water bottles anyway. So yeah, this is a dog friendly design!

I also out of curiosity affixed the straw directly to the filter and drank directly from the creek and it was quite easy to do. The amount of suction required was similar to drinking a milkshake, and the flow rate was surprisingly great.

At that point one can either shake the filter free of the water still inside the filter, or blow through it providing the same effect.

When I got home I did the back flush with the syringe twice, and the thing flushed perfectly.

This thing was a piece of cake to use, and was exactly what I was looking for to carry in my Heli Pack whenever I go out in the backcountry. I would recommend this filter to anyone!

...and for $20, you cannot beat this. Plus you get a bag, straw, and syringe with it. Buy one now!

Anyone with questions, feel free to ask/comment. Glad to help.

The Sawyer Mini is amazingly light and fast. It is much faster than I expected. Roll the bottom of the squeeze bag gently like a toothpaste tube and clean water flows quickly into a bottle or a drinking bag. It even improved the taste of "safe" water which was clear but had an aftertaste when consumed unfiltered. Replace the hard plastic packaging with a kitchen storage bags (freezer bags are more durable) and it takes up very little pack space. I used it to demonstrate water filtration at a Scouting event and everyone was impressed by the size and speed. This has earned a permanent spot in my backpack. I bought some extra 1-liter Platypus bags for the clean water.

At this price point, for what this is, this should be a REQUIRED purchase for every human on the planet! Nothing is more important than water (ok, air I guess), and this does an outstanding job of filtering it. The size platform of this particular unit is so unobtrusive, that it is a true EDC item in a glovebox, purse, lunchbox, prep bag, etc. I use a sawyer full size at home for all my coffee maker water, as I have extremely hard and calcified water. After a year of daily use, my coffee maker still looks and works like new, with zero crusty buildup.

Now the full size can stay in my kitchen and I have a new baby sawyer that fits in the hip belt pocket of my pack. Life is good! Since freezing will destroy the membrane in these, I'm actually purchasing extras for emergency use and keeping them unused. At $20, there really is no reason anymore to not have water filtration capabilities stationed in every car, boat, camper, pack and bag you own.

I was looking for a lighter alternative to my heavy MSR Sweetwater. The kit comes with everything you need, I just wish it came with a cheap mesh stuff sack to keep everything together. It filters faster and lighter than my Sweetwater, at a 1/4 the price.

Very nice filter. Arrived quickly, no shipping damage. Tried it out the first weekend on the A/T. Works great. I had read about other people bursting the bag by trying to squeeze it to hard so I took my time and it worked perfectly. Very happy with this product.

I've used the regular Sawyer Squeeze for years and found it to be the lightest, most practicale filter for backpacking. I was excited to get the mini since I've moved into ultralight backpacking. This ways over an ounce less and is more compact. It works as well as the original abliet the tiniest bit slower. I never use the bags that come with it. I've used a Nalogene flexible canteen (plastic pouch) with a fitting that allows the Sawyer to fit directly too it. The nalogene cantene bag has a wide mouth which makes filling from your water source a breeze. The best just got better!

This water filter is so handy to have on a hike. It takes up virtually no room, is easy to use and cleared out water as expected. I purchased this prior to a hiking trip and used it for 4 days to filter all my water, even shared it with others using the bag to squeeze water into containers.

This filter also fits most water bottles which is also extremely handy in case a bag breaks or isn't available. Just fill bottle, add filter and squeeze or drink straight from filter.
