After looking at many different options... MSR.. .Katadyn... Aquamira... I decided to go with the Sawyer 3-way Inline Water Filter.. I chose it based on reviews I found on-line.. And unlike the different pump systems out there that could(and have from reviews) break down.. I went with what seemed simple enough... Connect to hydration pack and sip.. I also liked the idea that this water filter could be used in many different ways.. From a simple straw system where you connect the tubes and dip directly into the water source and sip.. Or gravity system where you can fill up your hydration bladder with water.. and allow it to drip down into another container.. ie: water jug/dish tub/nalgene.. Or it can even be connected to a water faucet if you are in an area where you should not drink tap water..
The filter is good and guaranteed for up to 1,000,000 gallons.. How you would keep track of that is beyond me.. But I imagine it's guaranteed for life by that statement. It is equipped with a 0.1 micron absolute hollow fiber membrane filter.. Protects you from 99.99999% bacteria and 99.99999% protozoa and cysts... The filter weights in at a whole 3oz.. So it's definitely light enough for the hardcore backpacker..
So Saturday I finally got to test it out as I had forgotten to fill my hydration bladder before heading to the stream to do some fishing.. So I unhooked my platypus and dipped it in the nice cold stream and filled it up and my thirst was instantly quenched...Read more ›
Let me say that this is an exceptional filter.
If you've never used an 'in-line' system this is the way to go. There's nothing to replace, wear out and it just keeps working. If it gets clogged up, use the faucet thingy, or just reverse direction and use a bag of mostly clean water in the same bag, roll and squeeze it until you blow out all the gunk then continue filtering.
The flow rate is surprisingly good. In my kitchen just now (using well water) it will empty a 2L Platypus Big-Zip in 2:30. Then I filled a 5 gallon car-boy jug in under 30 min. With a pump you'd only filter what you needed, often neglecting washing water etc. With this system I filter as much as I can then use the hanging bag as a hand-wash and dish wash station!
I found the flow rate is good enough to sip from the straw without too much resistance either from a bag, or dropping the 'dirty end' of the tube into water and drinking directly. In fact, if you set the clean end of the tube downhill and remove the bite-piece and then get it started, it will syphon out of a pool or puddle nicely.
No other filter out there can come close to the "Million Gallon Guarantee" and that's why I chose Sawyer and stuck with them.
It was a bit tricky getting this thing going. Maybe the carbon filter contributed to this. I'm going to have to play around with it more - it seems like it required bit of pressure to get the flow started consistently.
That said, it was good that I had the system because almost everyone ran out of water on the way back down. We would have been in trouble but the Sawyer saved the day! Huge thumbs up for this system, and I love how simply back flushing the unit is enough to 'clean' it out sufficiently.
They're also really prompt in responding to emails if you have questions. One important thing to note: NEVER attempt to wash the filter with soap/soapy water - this will destroy the filter.
I suppose even more importantly I have NEVER gotten sick from using this filter. After each trip I simply back flush the filter. Replacing a 1.2 lb water filter with this 2 oz beauty is a fantastic way to trim ounces. In a nutshell...I love it! This along with the hiker hammock and trekking poles are the 3 best items to come along for hikers in some time.

The water filter worked well, but a bit awkward to use as an in-line filter system since it adds air bubbles.Published 9 months ago by R Mac
