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 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.
The Sawyer Mini is one of the most versatile personal filtration systems available and comes with all the accessories you need to use this system in any of the following ways.
With all these options, the Sawyer Mini becomes a great solution for camping, backpacking, hiking, hunting, fishing, international travel, emergency preparedness and more.
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.
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.
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!
Yes, connectors for your hydration pack hose are built into the filter.
As long as the bottle has a "standard" thread you can. Most soda and disposable water bottles made worldwide use this thread.
For longer filter life, you should backwash and sanitize the filter after every outing.
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.
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
What a sweet product. I am still skeptical that this exists. The degree of filtration is amazing and the compact size is great.Published 2 hours ago by collin
Simple, minimal and all you need for filtering water. Get more bags unless you use it for a day hike. Sturdy design and holds up well.Published 15 hours ago by Lynn K
These are great, but make sure to buy a large bag. If you backpack and want to reduce weight and space, these are the way to go. Plus the price tag wn't break the bank.Published 18 hours ago by Wade Piehl
