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.

Do yourself a favour - buy something else

First time wild camping and loads of people in the group had these. I felt a bit inadequate with my tablets and these looked really cool. So I took a punt. Wish I hadn't now - the flow rate on this model was soooo slooow from day 1, you have to squeeze really hard just to get a tiny trickle (I have heard many tales and seen a few people with bags splitting from the pressure). And it comes with all this kit with syringes etc for back-flushing which you have to do regularly just to restore the flow rate to that slow trickle. The opening on the bags is so small that they are hard work and take forever to fill too. Then I got an MSR Trailshot - OMG that is so much quicker, drop the end in the water and pump for a really good flow. When the filter clogs (mine hasn't yet) you just take the tube off and shake it to restore the flow - I have done this as a preventive measure and its really easy and doesn't require carrying extra kit. Then I got a Katadyn BeFree filter and the flow is even better still - fill your bottle in no time at all, really easy and again just shake it to clean the filter. I have also used other peoples' Sawyer Squeeze filters and they have great flow rates. So - don't buy the MINI - buy pretty much any other filter - Sawyer Squeeze if you want this brand and to fit the neck of standard mineral water bottles, Katadyn if you want wide neck easy fill bottles or MSR if you want something with a tube you can just drop in a puddle and pump.

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!
