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.

An easy way to lose the will to live...

As the other reviewer said it does what you need it to, but with such a slow flow pace it just gets painful. I gave up on the filter on the superior hiking trail this autumn and just used my backup micropur tablets. Fine when new or after a super thorough backwash but performance goes downhill very quickly...

Not worth the weight savings over the Sawyer Squeeze

This does everything you basically want from a water filter - produces drinkable water, tough, easy to use and back flush. However, the flow isn't wonderful to begin with, and quickly gets worse as the filter gets dirty. This isn't difficult to back flush and get back to full flow, but its not worth the hassle.

The Sawyer Squeeze is only 35 grams heavier than this model, but the flow is infinitely better. I saw a lot of people on the Pacific Crest Trail this year ditch the Sawyer mini and spend the money to get the better squeeze.
