Attaches to hydration packs, disposable water bottles, or straws to drink directly from your water source. The removal of allbacteria and the removal of all protozoa removes 100% of microplastics. The Sawyer MINI filter is rated up to 100,000 gallons.
👤The product has everything needed to carry water. The water purification system made perfect sense to me as a nurse. I bought it for my son to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. I thought it was brilliant. And it is. The O ring broke on the second day of his hike. The problem on the mini was familiar to other hikers. The regular size Sawyer filter does not have the same problem. You can go from a 1 star to a 5 if you fix your O rings.
👤The instruction is written in a way that makes it seem like it's for another product. There are instructions for a push pull valve, but not one for a push pull valve. The design of the backwashing kit is poor, it does not attach to the filter, thus allowing water to leak out around the connection between the filter and the syringe, thus the flush will not be adequate due to lack of pressure and flow. I recommend not buying this product until the company hires someone that understands English better, as I believe that the design of this product was not thought out and that force is not required to hold the syringe tip next to the filter. Please rewrite the instructions completely because the instructions need to be changed so that the filter can be attached to the syringe easily. The thread size on a standard 500mL water bottle is not match by the filter.
👤This is a great option for a small filter. I was looking for a new accessory. I have used various gravity and pump systems in the past and wanted something smaller and lighter. I don't think I'll use it on top of a water bottle. I was a little worried because I thought it would only work as a squeeze system and it could be a little slow or awkward at times. I was satisfied with the speed and ease of use when using it as a squeeze filter, as well as with the platypus bag. I think this filter shines when used as a drip system. I used it with a 1 liter platypus bag and found that I could hang the bag with the filter on it from a cord with a tarp clip and let it gravity filter into a bottle. The wind can't blow the lower tip of the filter off target if I place it inside a bottle. It's much easier to hold a liter of filters than it is to hold a liter. I keep the filters, backflushing syringe, and the bag in a pocket in my pack. The cord is tied in a loop with a taut line hitch. I can adjust the height of the filter when I throw it over a branch so that it hangs just inside the top of the bottle. You can see from my pictures that the flow was adequate. After the first use, I flushed about once a day on the trail. The first time I tried to attach it to the supplied bag and my platypus bag, I had trouble with it. I had to be careful to make sure the threads were straight and not at an angle. I got it lined up correctly, and it went on without a hitch. I drink and cook with it on the trail, using an average of 5 or 6 litres of water per day.

👤I would like to recommend this product. I bought this straw for my wife and me because we were going camping. I was browsing for camping gear on Amazon when I found this product. The package came with a backwash and water pouch. I was able to store some of the water. The life straw is fast in its filtration rate. The water pouch is free of impurities. Some people are asking if they have to lie down. Don't worry! The camping gear straw has a water tube that you can drink from. If you need hiking gear, this is a good choice.
👤I gave it to my boyfriend for Christmas, but he was not expecting it. We don't use them very often, but we have bug out bags that are great to have on you in case of an emergency or long camping trips where fresh water isn't available.
👤I have been tested by outdoorsmen and am safe if you are stuck in a car with no fresh water.
👤I received it and it was coming apart. I returned it because I wanted to give it back.
👤When we go camping, these are kept in the car. Always useful.

👤I have tried many different brands of this type of device. This one is my favorite so far. I bought the 4 pack and primed it. It was easy to drink from a straw, as easy to prime as it was. It hooks onto a hydration tube. It's possible to attach it to your bladder. Attaching to a water bottle is easy. I would buy these again. Well done. I can't find it in the wild because it's 8 inches long. But... I'm going to use it.
👤It is a good product. I can't find any contact information on Amazon or the internet for my question. We tried it out. It is recommended to take care of it before storing. How long does it take to dry? I can't blow air through it and if I suck in I get bubbles. What are I doing wrong? Please help. I don't have the ends closed. They are open. Thank you. They only think you want to return it, so there was no choice but to ask.
👤I haven't had an emergency need to use it, but it came complete and in good shape.
👤Great product. I like the tube that is added. Sometimes putting your face next to water is dangerous. You have to do that with tube. I will buy more.
👤The box says more than 260 gallons. I would say missing a few gallons. I should get my money back.
Easy Health Solutions offers a one year warranty and is easy to contact, just send them a note and they will respond promptly. The filter's size is 0.1 microns. The total effective area of ultrafiltration is over 300 square inch. The water flow rate was 0.4 gallons per minute. The dimensions are 1.6” 7.4” 1057 gallons is the total filtration capacity.
👤We liked everything about them.
👤This Chinese manufactured water filter offers transparency as to the contents and construction, so check both my and seller ad photos. A replaceable spare carbon pre-filter was provided by the seller. The hollow microfiber tubes are wrapped into a U shape at the bottom in my photo, only concern I have is reflected in it. You can see the light coming through the outer body. I am not sure if this would allow contaminated water to short-circuit a path and avoid going through the microtube filtration process. There are gaps in the tube body where hollow fibers are not placed, but there is no clear picture of that in the photo. I liked the features of this device, such as a screw on solid sip tube cap, hanging carabiner, and neck lanyard, to help prevent accidental droppage into water source during use. There is an informative user instruction pamphlet included with the device that helps users better understand how to use it safely. I would love for a Chinese manufacturer to give a copy of their certified results along with their product to a water quality testing lab. Water quality should not be taken lightly because of the possible consequences of waterborne impurities. This manufacturer makes what they are doing visible for inspection, and that puts them far ahead of other Chinese origin water filters I have personally reviewed. I would use it more in emergency situations than I have used the other units I have looked at to date, even though I wouldn't be comfortable using it as my primary water filters for outdoor recreational activities. I hope you find my photos and comments helpful.
👤After testing, instructions were written for an off brand product. The carbon filter ripped when it was removed. That was disappointing, but I don't think that should happen with the second filter. That's a great bonus! I had trouble removing the filter withoutpuncturing it because the factory pushed it in too far. I should not ruin this one because I can see the lip that prevents it from going in too far, as I placed the second filter. It wasn't as hard to suck water as I thought. If I was going to use it for hiking or backpacking, I would upgrade to the metal canister as the plastic may not be as durable. These are the way to go if you just want them in an emergency supply kit. Excellent value and very pleased with them.
👤Life straws for your backpack are an appearance that we keep in our emergency kit. I have to rely on life straws because I can't afford to go to Mexico during emergencies. Excellent for emergencies.
👤I ordered the Dackwinid Straw water filters to add to my bag. They are easy to use and lightweight. You can drink from any water source. I keep these on hand for emergency purposes. In a survival situation, the purity of the water would definitely be better than nothing.
We donate a serving for every purchase you make. In disaster zones, hospitals, impoverished communities, and emergency living quarters, Liquid I.V. provides much-needed hydration. They have donated over 19 million units. One bottle of 50 Potable Aqua Water Purification Tablets and one bottle of 50 Potable Aqua PA Plus tables. Water purification tablets make questionable water safe to drink. The water purification tablets leave no taste or color in your emergency water. The portable water treatment tablets can be used for emergency water purification. Water treatment tablets are ideal to keep with camping gear.
👤I received these tablets in January 2020. The lot #s were manufactured in December of last year. Why am I getting tablets that are 13 months old? 13 months old is completely unacceptable, considering these are widely accepted to have a four year shelf life.
👤I did not get sick when I traveled to Nepal and I think this product is very good. The first pill stained my water bladder and caused me to give this product 4 stars. You have to carry a separate container for the tablets and the bladder if you want to avoid staining. I would probably get chlorine tablets if I did this again. The water tasted good using those but it tasted the same with the chlorine tablets. I used them for 15 days and they worked.
👤The wilderness areas of America have lost the experience of dipping your head into a cold mountain stream and taking a long refreshing drink. Increased use of the wilderness has led to an increase in the amount of water that is contaminated with fecal coliform. 90 percent of the world's water is contaminated according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. There are two methods for water purification, Iodine and chlorine. Iodine leaves a taste, but it is more effective. It is suggested that the taste may determine how much one drinks. How do you deal with it? Potable Aqua includes a second bottle with tablets you can add to remove the taste, or you can add a pinch of salt per quart. The other option is chlorine, which is used for people with allergies to iodine, as well as for people with thyroid problems, and for people who are allergic to shellfish. It's important to know that if you open a dark bottle, it may need to be used within a certain time. The temperature, pH level, and clarity of the water are some of the factors that affect the effectiveness of chemical treatment. The higher the concentration of chemical, the more cloudy the water is. If the water is cloudy, add tablets to it. All water areas should be treated with a chemical on the lid and threads of the water bottle. The water should sit for a while. If the water temperature is less than 40F, double the treatment time before drinking is needed. Toxic water that has dissolved chemicals or salt will not be worked on by chlorine and iodine. If that is the case, the best thing to do is not use toxic water. You should have at least two options for water, fire and shelter. The Sawyer Products SP128 Mini Water Filter has the distinction of being able to be used almost continuously, even if you backwash it. Some people say that boiling water is the best way to make it safe, but I like to see bubbles for my own peace of mind.
👤The package was open when I received it, but there was a bottle and part of the package missing.
You can buy multi-colors according to your preferences. Keep your water clean. The Purewell Water Filter use a 0.01 Microns ultra-filtration Membrane, which can provide you with a reliable source of pure drinking water at any time and anywhere. Especially in an emergency. Keep your water clean. It's just 2 ounces. The Personal Water Filter can be up to 5000L and can be trapped in the multiple fibers layers inside the straw. The water is clean and good to drink. The mechanical filters only contain harmful substances. Water is forced through hollow fibers when you suck on your Straw, it's easy to use and clean. Simply blow air out of the straw to clear the filters after use. It can be connected to any bottle. A plastic bag or a Coca-Cola bottle are examples. It's small and convenient. FRESH WATER IS INSTANTLY. The water filter can turn lakes, rivers, streams into drinking water and it's perfect for hiking, camping, hunting, travel and emergency preparation. Your kit is never too prepared. The equipment for the outdoors. Without electricity, their water purification system works quickly to turn water into clean and safe drinking water. It can deliver water to meet your water needs.
👤The primary reason I bought these straws over the others was that it could filter up to 5000 liters. The packaging shows its max output is 1500 liters. I ordered two of them, but they don't state whether it filters 1500 liters per straw or both combined. False advertising and making a bad first impression. Will be ordering the cheaper ones since there is no honest advertised difference. I didn't use the straw after my initial disappointment.
👤You get a water bag, a plunger and a water filter. The extension tubing is not included in the package even though it is listed in the bullets. There are 3 ways of using the instructions. Use bottles with a threaded neck if you want to suck straight from the filter. I decided to use this with my platypus gravity system. The tubing in my platypus kit isn't the right size for the input nipple of the filter. This is a personal water straw which the manufacturers intended to use. I haven't had the chance to test this against other water filters.
👤I attached it to a bottle. It works well for both setup. We have it in camping gear and emergency kits. I'm thinking of adding a first aid kit in my car, but I'm a little cautious about the midwestern winters.
👤It gives me peace of mind that it will help filtrate the water if I ever need it, even if I haven't yet used it for drinking water.
👤Have not been given the chance to use it yet. When the time arrives, hopefully it will function as expected.
👤The product worked as expected. It is small and light. Would buy again.
👤Works well! Great tasting water is easy to use.
Water treatment tablets are ideal to keep with camping gear. The portable water filter is lightweight and easy to use. 100% of the Micro Squeeze Units are individually tested to performance standards. The flip top sports cap has been built-in. The spray water comes from the included pouch and also fits standard water bottles with 28 Mm threads. Two Reusable 32-Oz, Bpa-Free Collapsible Pouches that Roll up tight for easy packing, Drinking Straw, One Set of Sawyer Inline Hydration Pack Adapters for Filter, and a Mesh Storage Bag are included.
👤I used this for the first time. It is simple and effective. I did not get sick from the water. I think. Some of the water I drank on the PCT was delicious and I didn't need to filter it. Some of the dead animals were rotting in a stagnant cistern. You will be happy when you have your sawyer. I started with the MInI sawyer and it is better than my mini, which broke in the first month. The mini is being sucked on by the flow. If you want to use this a lot, I would suggest buying a new O ring with a mesh filter at a hardware store and using it for your kitchen faucet. You will have to clean your sawyer less often, and double-rainbow/filtration will be added, because this will add another layer of filters before water reaches your sawyer. You are welcome.
👤I didn't want to send it back because of the value issue. I added a smart water bottle top and it works. A simple solution to a messed up experience. I have ordered this product from Amazon 3 times. I have received the product many times. I received a 2 pouch system that was incomplete until I realized it did not have the push/pull valve and cap. It was not as described and one of the most important features was missing when I sent it back. Without this feature, spills can occur and the last thing you want is to find your down sleeping bag wet and smelly because of a spill from the remaining water in the filter. You don't want to bag a wet filter because it will affect you in the long run. Hopefully, this is an error which Amazon catches because they are offering an incomplete system which is misleading, considering the description states the item is included. If you order this system in the one pouch option, you need the cap and not the twist cap on the squeeze bags. This will help others catch this issue.
👤For years, I have been using the Katadyn water bottle for my water needs while I am on the trail and on myMSR pump filter around the camp and this has replaced both of them. The Katadyn bottle was nice, but had only ok flow, so you can't squeeze and eat like crazy with the Sawyer. You can use the included pouch or any bottle with a 2 liter screw top, such as a smart water bottle, and the flow is awesome. It comes out the other side when you squeeze. It was time for Katadyn to be gone and replaced with a new one for filtering at camp. I used to either pump and pump more or use the tablets to get enough water. Sawyer saves the day again. You can make a simple gravity system with the addition of a $2 tornado tube and a couple of collapsible water bottles. Put a couple of holes in the welded section and fill one bottle with dirty water. Put the tornado tube on the "out" side of the filter, put the empty bottle into the other end of the tornado tube, and put the side of the filter away from the arrow on the " dirty" water bottle. Turn it upside down and hang it from a tree. Everything is not the same when you come back. I don't need more pumping for me. I still bring tablets or auqamira drops as an emergency backup, but haven't needed them yet. I attached a couple of pics of the setup I used on a 9 day backpacking trip I just got back from, in case my description is hard to understand. Let me know if you have any questions, or if you want to search for Sawyer Squeeze on the internet.

👤The Grayl Geopress Purifier was purchased from Amazon. I like reading reviews from other customers. When I received it, I had trouble trying to get the water out of the container because it was coming out between the containers. I tried several times after I was disappointed. I thought I was going to have to return it. I kept trying. I read about other people who had this problem, but I didn't see any damage since the filter is made in the USA. This time I tried to make sure the filter was put in correctly, I assume I didn't do that right the other times. I took my time to allow the water to pass through the filter. Make sure your filter is turned completely before you click. I use a tool to help me. I'm not strong enough to do that. I hope it helps others. I'm buying another one.
👤If you need a reliable water supply, do not use this product. The clean water storage unit wants to slip out of the casing because it's poorly designed. I dropped the bottle onto the dirt in the second use. The unit was rendered useless due to the cracked and leaking outer shell. This was a small fall. Very poor construction.
👤I opened the box and used it. On top and in the bottom.
👤I am not your typical consumer. I use a flashlight to inspect everything I buy. I did it this time. There was water at the bottom of the cup. Either it has been used or it has been stored in horrible conditions. There are tons of plastic dust. I bought this from Grayl, not a different seller on Amazon. I believe they are sending returns as new products. I have seen signs of use after ordering twice. They need to fix their packaging or their storage. Send used bottles that were returned. I could have easily started using it if I had inspected it more thoroughly. So disappointed. The product is good when new. Really strong and sturdy.
👤We hiked the coast to coast of England with my husband. This was a life saver. We didn't have to carry a ton of water on our backs, we just packed a full hydro flask and empty Geopress. We had to refill our water supply from mountain stream run offs. The water tasted great. Even though the water was flowing through sheep fields, the Geopress made sure it was free ofbacteria. I liked this product more than the life straw because the life straw filters when you suck on it. My son and I traveled in Asia this summer and tried it. The straw was hard to suck through, so it was hard to feel full. The water is safe to drink even if you want to, once you push the filter through. We dumped the water back into the hydroflasks that we had filled with ice, so we had cool, refreshing water all day. I like the idea of life straw giving money back to poor communities for safe drinking water, but the product just falls short. The Geopress is durable and awesome. I highly recommend this product if you don't want to carry a lot of water on your back. We took additional caution to only take from moving water sources. I believe that the product advertises that you can take from any source, moving or not, as long as it is not salt water. I have tried both products this year and I think the extra money is worth it.
All manufacturing and other defects are covered by their lifetime warranty. The only other straw on the market that can be disassembled is the WS02 water filter straw. It just needs to replace the filter element whenever and wherever, no need to replace the straw tube shell frequently, which is more eco-friendly. The backwash solution has a replaceable mouth that connects with the bottle for back washing. The camping water filter is very easy to use. The backpacking water filter is made up of four stages: hollow fiber ultrafiltration, coconut shell GAC, and double PP fiber filters. It makes water taste better by removing harmful heavy metals, chlorine, and bad odor. The optimal flow rate is 500ml/min and it can be maintained. It will take at least 5,000 liters of clean water to last a long time. Direct use as a personal water filter; also ideal for connecting with soft water pouch or standard disposable water bottles to squeeze get pure water; even add an extension silicone pipe on emergency water filter for more distance to drink; plus, as a replacement. The Safier Survival tool is FDA, EPA and Food-grade materials that ensure drinking water safety. An ideal tool for many purposes, such as backpacking gear, hiking gear, travel accessories, camping safety & survival equipment and emergency preparedness items. The hiking water filter is a great gift for hikers.
👤At the same time of life, I bought this item and saw which was better. Below are my pros and cons compared to life straw. 0.2 PM filter has a higher PROS than 0.1 PM filter. Life Straw does not remove heavy metals. 2. To dry and inspect the filter. Life straw cannot be torn apart. 3. Adapt normal water or soft drink bottle. There is no threading to do this. There are red screws on the straw that allow for additional water accessories to be sold separately. There are 1. The price was more than the straw. 2. There is no cap on the intake. The solution was to place a thin plastic between the male and female threads. 3. 1,500 liters is the typical life. The Life Straw filters are 0.2 pm, while the WS02 filters are 0.1 pm. 4. I would say 1/3 compared to the other way around. I think it's due to better filtering, but it's more noticeable when hanging around your neck. Both came with a lanyard to carry around and won't drop to the creek. Both have the same length and diameter. I will purchase this item again. I hope this helps you.
👤I was very impressed with these. These were on my short list because I am a beginner prepper. Many people in our area had broken water pipes. We had these on hand. They are small and light enough to fit in a purse or backpack. They make a nice addition to our camping pack and emergency car kit. I was very pleased with my purchase.
👤I like how it has a way to put water in a bottle. I don't like the idea of people bending down in streams to use a filter. I can't see myself going hiking and having to drink. Or use a container. It's not easy to drink from a container. My home country is Wales when we are hiking there. There are sheep in the wild and I don't feel like trying to get a drink from a river bent over with my backside as a target for a sheep to headbutt me into the river. I can scoop up water if I'm out with my head in the river drinking while a bear decides if I'm next meal. In a bottle keeping an eye on me. Turn it upside down and let it flow into a cup. Just sip away. I have one regret. I didn't buy more because I thought one was good to try, but now the price is out of my range. I regret that I should have gotten the 4 pack instead of the single. The attachment to the bottle is worth it and the product is well built.
👤If you put this onto a 6L bag, watch how fast it works. An empty Dassani water bottle is better than an empty 2L bottle. It's that easy to cut the bottoms off the bottles and fill it up. You can fill up your camper tank in no time. You will have to clean it from time to time because it comes apart quickly. I average a reverse blow up every 3 liters. It worked well past 400L before I cleaned it. It does get dirty, but it's a filter.
The system includes a Flex water filter, a collapsible soft touch water bottle, and a backwash syringe. The world renowned is tested at multiple certified labs within the USA to show a 99% removal of tested viruses, staph, andbacteria. The portable water purification with filters can be cleaned and used again, lasting up to 264,000 gallons. The survivor filter is the most versatile personal water filter straw available because it can be used directly from a fresh water source. A triple Filtration consists of a carbon filter, mesh cotton pre-filter, and extra mesh cotton pre-filter. All manufacturing and other defects are covered by their lifetime warranty.
👤The filter is amazing. I had access to fresh springs in the first couple of hikes. It has been with me throughout Florida and I traveled to Cuba with it. I drank the tap water. No issues with the intestines ever! There are old pumps with high sulfur and iron water in the backcountry of Myakka River State Park. A friend had a different brand filter than the popular brand on the trail. The picture was taken in a dark tent during a storm. The water had a strong sulfur smell and taste, but it had already been sieved with the Sawyer, and the iron was still present. The bottle with the Survival Filter is the other one. There was no sulfur smell, no taste, and very mild mineral flavor. The difference is amazing. I recommend you suck it up and choose this one. The filter is heavier than the other ones. Come on, look at the picture. 2. The filter flow is very slow with each liter. Pre-filtering with a cloth helps. I would rather have the best water and take a little more time to get it. To keep the flow rate up, bring a few extra cotton pads.
👤I recently traveled to Africa. I tested the water from the kitchen and bath sinks in private homes in Senegal for parasites and waited one week to declare myself free of them. I feel safe knowing I had this in my tool kit when I traveled to countries without treated water.
👤I was pleased with this product. I have ordered this product before and had no problems. The reason for the four-star rating is that my most recent purchase of this product left something to be desired. One of the O-rings broke when the package was opened. I contacted the company and they replaced me in less than a week. The entire mouth piece O ring was replaced. I would say that the product is very good and that the customer service is excellent. It's because the company could do better and here's how. It's true that things like this are going to break, but it's also true that something as small as an O-ring is cheap to provide extras for. One extra O ring in each package would make certain that this product would be 100% quality guaranteed. Going hiking with only this filter might get you in trouble, other 99% of these might do perfect, and 1% might put you in a bit of a bind. You can't ask for much more out of this company, it's been good at providing decent quality and customer service, but a bit of foresight could make this product worth every penny and then some. I hope this company sees the review and provides extras of small cheap parts that might fail if they are essential. If I were to see that in future products, this would be the only company I use for personal water filters, and it would earn a six star rating.

👤You should get a Sawyer-Mini. I have used both on camping trips. You need steel jaws to suck water. If you use a Sawyer or other filters with pump/squeeze action, you won't have to rip out your filling. You have to lie on the ground, and other filters have a straw if the pouch breaks. You need to watch actual videos of people who use these frequently before voting down this post. Everyone uses a pump or squeeze method of filtration. Lifestraws are a great idea, but it is hard to use.
👤I am sorry to have the first one be so negative but the life straw was a total and utter disappointment. I bought it for my daughter to go to Mexico with strict instructions to not drink anything without the life straw. Had she followed my instructions she would have died of dehydration. We followed the instructions from the video to soak it, but we couldn't get any water to come through it. It was too late to return to Amazon and I did not receive a reply when I contacted Life Straw. Too bad. I was going to have one for each family member to have in an emergency pack. I will not do that after this experience.
👤This thing is serious. I went backpacking on Maine's Bigelow range. I ran out of water when I brought it. Bring a wide mouth bottle and fill it with water. I drank from the most disgusting looking hole on top of a lower peak. I thought it would be safe, but it wasn't. Wrong. It tasted like fresh spring water. Better than a tap. I'm from Maine, and I've tasted plenty of water from the mountain springs. It can be difficult to start. You have to prove it by soaking. Blow into it if it still doesn't work. Everyone should have a bug-out bag in case of a civil war, because the world seems to have gone mad.
👤If you don't clear the water after each use, the water will seize up. I didn't run a gallon through either of the break I had.
👤I dropped it from my mouth to the countertop and it stopped working, which is ridiculous. There was no impact at all. It is dangerous to have a water source out in the woods if it can't take an impact. This bad review is solely about that fact.
👤I've used these in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Works as advertised. The system is safe to use. When we deploy, we use it as a standard procedure to have one in everyone's room. It's called Semper Fi.
👤I drank from a steam. I have become a hippie. I'm in a transformation.
👤We got what we ordered. I've used this product before in Afghanistan, and I'm happy with it.
👤The price was right, so I wanted to get one for a while. The water out of the Lake of Two Mountains tasted good and did not have any ill effects.
