Sawyer Products Mini Water Filter
A lifetime of water at hand
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 travelling abroad where tap and bottle water cannot be trusted. It comes with all the accessories you need to use this system in any of the following ways:
- Attach to the included 16-ounce reusable squeeze pouch to drink directly from the filter or squeeze water into a water bottle.
- Screw onto most disposable water bottles.
- Attach inline on a hydration pack — no adapters required
- Sip from the personal drinking straw and drink directly from the source, or scoop up a bottle of water directly from any freshwater lake, river, or stream.
Versatile, Use Anywhere, Take Anywhere Size
Filter into a water bottle to enjoy yourself or share with others.
Sip from a container (or right from the water source) with the included straw.
Screw the Mini onto water or soda bottles with a standard threaded top.
Attach inline to a hydration pack (sold separately) — hose connectors are built into the filter.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Absolute Micron Filtering Technology?
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. 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 travelling to foreign cities.
How often should I clean the filter?
For longer filter life, you should backwash and sanitize the filter after every outing. The Mini is backflushable almost indefinitely, and there are no expensive cartridges to replace, ever. Sawyer recommends sanitizing the filter before prolonged storage.
Will it 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 plan on field backwashing your filter.

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.
Attach the Mini to the included drinking pouch, use the included straw to drink directly from your water source, connect it to hydration pack tubing (sold separately), or screw it onto standard disposable bottles (28 mm thread). The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is rated up to 100,000 gallons. It comes with 16-ounce reusable squeeze pouch, 7-inch drinking straw, and cleaning plunger.
Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries -- everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

When the filter first was connected, you could use just the suction of your mouth and water came through the filter just fine. But after about 4-5 mouthfuls of water, it jammed.
Hopefully this was just a defective unit, and I have a replacement on the way. But certainly glad I tested it BEFORE relying on it out in the field.
Our backwashing tips and tricks video can be seen on our website.
The pouch that comes with it is reportedly not that good, however, the threaded end fits my other plastic collapsible bottles as well as ordinary, store bought, water bottles. This, in many situations, will give you better water than store bought bottled water. At least according to my water tester. (see my other reviews for that) I replaced the straw with a better one, the syringe can also be replaced if the need arises.
I can use it drink from my local rivers and streams, puddles as well, just through the straw. (right from my kayak) If I stray from a water source I can then carry water in a bottle with this bolted on the end. Simple. It does not contain a carbon filter, so taste may not be vastly improved, depending where you will use it.
This is a small and compact "ready to go" filter that can fit in a car survival kit, boat, kayak, back pack etc.
The versatility has got me thinking of buying more, one for inline water filtration on my water bladder.
If you take care of it you can get allot of water out, at this price it may be worth buying a new one every few years,
I will update this review later this summer if necessary.
