The Sawyer Mini Filter is extremely light and can be used to filter water in a variety of ways including sucking straight from the source. Backflushing is straight forward and easy.

Sawyer says:  “A lifetime of water at hand.”

Our most popular filter just got smaller and lighter. The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is rated to 0.1 micron absolute, weighs only 2 ounces, and filters up to 100,000 gallons!  This award winning system is reliable and easy to use.

The MINI can be attached to the included collapsible drinking pouch, inline on a hydration pack, on a standard soda bottle, or simply use the included drinking straw to drink directly from the water source.  How is that for versatility? Like all Sawyer filters, a proper backwashing can restore up to 98.5% of the filter’s flow rate. That means no expensive cartridges to replace, ever.


The Sawyer Mini Filter is a fantastically lightweight filter unit which comes with a squeezable 0.5 Litre pouch that you can fill with dirty water and squeeze it through the filter into another container - or indeed into your mouth. We like the focus on cleaning as this type of filter can get clogged easily if the water isn't pristine, using the included syringe the filter can be washed through quickly and easily - we look forward to trying these in the field.

Great bit of kit

Great filter that works very well. I bought extra bottle pack at a larger size too so I wouldn't have to refill at a camp as often. It comes complete with all the bits for back flushing etc. Very light weight compared to other filters but it is a little slow to filter through. Does exactly what is says on the tin!

Perfect for me needs

I bought the filter about 2 years ago, and for my needs it is fine. I use it backpacking and hiking in the UK. On long mountain days in the Lakes, it's perfect, I take 2 litres of water and fill up at the next stream when the first litre is gone. This means that even in the heat of summer up high, I never run out of water. I have had to help several people who have run out of water on the hills. I drink a lot of fluids and for me I am very happy with it as it means I can fill up on the move instead of taking 3+ litres of water with me everyday which means less weight to carry. In regards to some of the other comments about the lack of flow, it is a bit slow and takes a minute or 2 but, I'm there to enjoy myself and to see the views so a small rest by a stream or pond/lake for a few more minutes is really not a problem. It might be slower than some systems but its not a race!!! I am very happy with it :)
