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. 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.

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 frontcountry for a day hike with the dog to give it a test in the field.

We made it to a nice frozen shoulder of the Rattlesnake Creek in Missoula. The temp was below freezing, i'de say 20-30°F, 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 with the current 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 use a 32oz Platypus bag I have, and carry the included 16oz 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 my boy 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!

Also out of curiosity I 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, and/or blow through it providing the same effect. (I should note that if using this in freezing temperatures, to prevent the filter from freezing after use, you will want to keep it on or near your body's core).

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.

I used this Sawyer water filter to provide drinking water for my wife and I on a wilderness camping trip. The filter is light small and performed perfectly. We noticed nothing strange about the water or it's taste.We were using very clean looking water likely containing "Beaver Fever" and cryptosporidium. We used a 2 liter bottle as a dirty water bottle and found it to be easy but slightly time consuming to squeeze fill our respective Water bottles but still way better than carrying water in. Careful freezing destroys membrane of filter not for sub freezing temperatures. Bought this brand filter over others because of its versatility to use with straw or any soda bottle and it's long life of 100,000 gallons. Check out images of the product I uploaded.
EDIT After 1 year: This filter is still working great after over a dozen backpacking trips using this filter and several hikes. It is truly very nice feeling to drink the water right out of the river or lake your camping next to vs carrying in bottled water. Have used the the syringe to clean it several times and does seem to keep the flow going fast enough. I use a filtered funnel to scoop water up and into my soda bottle before filtering to keep filter as particle free as possible. I tried to use a platypus bottle bag with this filter but it does not fit quite and leaks, 2 liter bottle works best for us. Still totally satisfied wil buy another when it plugs up.

In general, the water filter works wonderfully. Specifically there are a couple of limitations built in to the product. First, it isn’t really gravity fed, the filter is fed by pressure provided by squeezing the container holding the pre-filtered water. I’ll admit that the pressure doesn’t have to be much to provide a steady stream of water. I suspect that the problems people have with the bag is that they try to force the water through the filter too quickly and tear the bag.

One of the built in problems is that the container which has the unfiltered water in it and on it is above the filter and the container that will hold the filtered water. One would want to wipe the unfiltered water container of most of the water on its exterior to keep the filtered water container as clean as possible.

I bought the filter with a sixteen ounce bag for the dirty water. Using the filter convinces me that the 16 ounce bag is too small. The bag isn’t completely emptied when it is used so collecting a half gallon of water for example would require many repeated filling and draining of the water bag. There are two easy solutions:
A. Buy a 32 ounce water bag
B. Bring along a two liter plastic bottle. Emptying a two liter plastic bottle is much quicker than and equally as easy as emptying the bag. Neither the bags nor the plastic bottle have valves so eventually a partial vacuum forms in them although it is an easy matter to invert the filter and container and release the coupling to allow air into the container.
When the filtering operation is finished one must remember to move the dirty water container away from the clean water container to avoid accidental contamination because the bag retains a little water.
All in all this is an excellent water filter for the backpacker and I'm very happy with my purchase.

I have been using this filter in Haiti for 3 months, and have installed them for others who don't have access to purified water. From a health standpoint, I give the product high marks. I have not been sick since using the filter. Water-borne viral illnesses are rare in my community, so the inability to filter viruses is moot. My main complaint to the plastic housing. The design is good, making it convenient to attach the filter directly to a water spigot. However, the plastic material does not hold up to many cycles of attachment/detachment from the spigot, and the threads get worn out. Metal would be a better material for this part of the housing.
