The Sawyer Squeeze Water Filtration System is the most technologically advanced and durable, yet incredibly simple to use water filtration solution on the market. Ray really likes this product as it is compact, easy to use and lightweight at under 3.5 ounces. This particular model comes with three squeezable pouches: 2 x 64 oz and 1 x 16 oz capacity. This filtration system also works very well with the MSR Dromedary Bags.

You won’t ever need to pop a pill, pump a filter, or wait for filtered water again.

Simply fill up the pouch at any source of water, screw the filter on to the pouch and proceed to using in multiple ways such as:
  • Squeeze the bag and filter water into your water bottle or container of choice
  • Drink directly from the filter which has push/pull cap included for on/off functionality
  • Attach the filter onto most threaded water bottles, including standard 2 litre bottles.
  • Includes collapsible pouches that are made from durable Mylar foil (100% BPA FREE), can be rolled tightly for easy packing, and can be reused hundreds of times
  • The Squeeze System has a removable push/pull cap built right in, so you can spray water straight into your mouth or use it to fill a water bottle; fills most water bottles in 30 seconds.
  • The PointONE filter removes 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli; removes 99.9999% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium
  • Included is a syringe to backflush the filter for an ability to maintain the filter in the field as well as to promote a high-flow rate
  • The PointOne filter will also fit the threads on most bottles of water that you buy at a grocery store; great for international travel
  • Incredibly easy to use, The Squeeze System comes with simple cleaning and maintenance instructions

  Fast becoming a dependable friend in the bush. This modest filter managed to handle extremely murky water which resembled coffee, and still managed to fill a Zebra 12cm Billy can with filtered water. The then boiled water made for an excellent bush corn on the cob. However I do recommend carrying the back flush syringe as the filter became naturally clogged quickly when stretched that far. If this happens in the field it is paramount that the filter be flushed with fresh water. Recommend using a rough filter whilst filling the squeeze bag or the MSR Dromedary water bladders. All in all a very dependable filter even when stretched to filtering heavy silted water. Never underestimate the amount of clean water needed to back flush the filter. It needed around 30 to 40 syringes to clear the clogging from that heavily silted water source. I now know I can depend on the Sawyer. It’s a very handy, lightweight and low volume device. Works especially well with the MSR Dromedary bags. The only slight reservation is the opening which is a flip top. As soon as you flip it open the water pours if it is pointing lower than the horizon. To rectify and not waste the odd splash of water it needs to be angled to point upwards. However, its merits far outweigh this minor detail. This will provide you with safe water for many a day. Although as always we must remember to boil all filtered water to be extra safe.

  We purchased the Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter as part of our equipment for walking in New Zealand. To reduce weight we only took the filter and the water bags. The syringe is not needed for back flushing, as you can simply squeeze clean water back from one of the water bags. We coloured one bag and top with a red marker and used that exclusively for dirty water. The filter was used for all water uplifts and we had no sickness problems with D+V or Giardiasis, that really says it all. One uplift was from a dubious looking, large muddy puddle, the filter produced clean water that was subsequently used for cooking. Easy to use, robust and reliable. A must for any serious backpacker. The only concern we had was keeping the filter warm on a few quite frosty nights, as freezing will break the filter. I simply kept the filter in my sleeping bag. We also carried the filter in our hand luggage when flying. This product does what it says it does, highly recommended.

  We bought this for an expedition in Patagonia. Tried it out in the Lake District and its fabulous. Easy to use, quick and simple. The small pouch doesn't really give you much water but the two large ones are great for a drinks bottle, cooking or a water bladder. Really enjoyed collecting and filtering our own water.

  Excellent product, as long as you know you will be able to access water supplies such as streams, tarns, lakes and wish to carry minimum water with you. This product will be ideal.

  This is easy to use and does what it says on the box. No more boiling water or puritabs in Snowdonia for me. My only issue is getting used to the taste of un-boiled water, occasionally interesting flavours ??

  Though I haven't used this product, yet I've given this item 5 stars simply because it is well made. This water filter system is a compact simple solution to water purification. It now resides in my backpack along with my orange survival bag, compass, first aid kit and tinder pouch. This constitutes the bulk of my survival/emergency kit. The price was by far the best on the net at the time of purchase especially when you consider that you get 3 bags with the kit. The service from woodlore was as usual exemplarily.
