The Sawyer water filter is a must have survival item. Water procurement is a top priority emergency need. We require a high-quality water filter for essentials pouches and go-bags.
The Sawyer filter is the right size and it has a 100,000 gallon filter rate. It's squeeze pouch and backwash plunger make it a great personal filter option.
We spend a TON of time outdoors. We account for hundreds of trail days this year. We've used our filters dozens of times when we've run out of water or others around us have under prepared. One time with a Scout troop they all underestimated the hike we were on and consumed all of their water. We were near a stream and quickly refilled all of their containers with the filter/pouch combo.
The high-performance 0.1 Micron absolute inline filter fits in the palm of your hand and weighs just 2 ounces. It removes 99.99999% of all bacteria (salmonella, cholera, and E. coli); removes 99.9999% of all protozoa (such as giardia and cryptosporidium); also removes 100% of microplastics.
In a survival or emergency situation finding and purifying water can be a lifesaving activity. This filter should be at the top of the list for first purchases in your prepper activities.
