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.

    Works Well For Bacteria, October 23, 2015
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Sawyer Products Mini Water Filtration System (Sports)
    The only concern that I have is that the flow rate is a bit slow Considering the size of the unit it is understandable. I did run a bacteria test with raw water from a mountain stream that was pretty clear. After incubation the raw water did show evidence of bacteria growth (photo attached) but that same water through the Sawyer Mini showed no evidence of bacteria. I also used a Steripen Classic 3 on the raw water and saw no bacteria growth. In this limited test both products seemed to work well for bacteria. That gives me confidence using either of these products.

    Perfect EDC water filter for hiking., December 23, 2013

    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 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.

    UPDATE: After 18 months of steady use, this thing is still running strong! I have also come up with a cool addition to this water filter…I removed the sticker on the white middle section and I have replaced it with about 5 feet of standard width 1.88″ DUCT TAPE! Using the filter AS the spool for the tape, allowing this filter to be a multi-purpose device. Some people will carry duct tape with them as a emergency repair kit, but we all know duct tape has a million uses, it’s the cousin of paracord practically. Trust me it is cool, with the duct tape wrapped around it multiple times, the tape will eventually be flush with the filter end caps and not look sloppy at all. Plus it’s a cool way to personalize your filter with a color or pattern to match your kit. If your a little picky like me, I didn’t exactly want a “blue” item with my stealth gear. Anyway, this method allows you to carry a decent amount of duct tape spooled around an item you are already carrying, and not taking up ANY extra space than the filter already is using inside your kit.

    Why not carry some…it might come in handy sometime.

    Perfect backpacking filter., July 15, 2014

    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.
