Drink Safe Water with the Sawyer Mini Water Filter
– When every ounce counts you won’t go wrong with the Sawyer Mini Water Filter. This filter only weighs 2 ounces! And, even better, it will filter 100,000 gallons of water. Pretty dang impressive!
Ski Haus has Continental Divide Through Hikers and Bikers coming in often. They are always looking for the lightest weight water filtration system they can find. Sawyer is it.
The Sawyer MINI removes 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli. It also removes 99.9999% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium. It won’t remove viruses but unless you’re traveling to some very suspect areas of the globe – filtering out bacteria is perfect. Always look for the clearest water source you can find. Grit in the water that won’t necessarily be bad for you to drink can play havoc on your filter. Make sure you clean your Sawyer often by squeezing water through the opposite direction you filter the water. The plunger is included with the filter.
To use your Sawyer Mini fill the drinking pouch, attach the Sawyer Mini, and squeeze the pouch to filter the water. You can either drink directly from the filter, or squeeze the water into another container, or use the straw to drink right from your source water.
