Manufacturers comments

Our proprietary hollow fibre membrane filters are small, portable, easy-to-use, reliable, inexpensive, and can last a decade without needing to be replaced.
Our filters are certified for ABSOLUTE microns making it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through.

With the technology derived from kidney dialysis, we partnered with a fiber manufacturer to actually improve the hollow fiber membrane technology. In order to improve both the filtration rates and longevity of the filter, our team was dedicated to engineering something even more precise and rugged. To make it a superior solution, the fiber composition had to deliver exactly 0.1 & 0.02 micron filtration 100% of the time to ensure no bacteria would get through. Moreover, the membranes had to be sturdy enough to withstand backwashing which allows the filter to be cleaning and reused.

Our proprietary water filters are comprised of tiny “U” shaped micro-tubes that allow water to enter into their core through minuscule micro-pores. Contaminates get trapped in the tubes while the decontaminated water passes freely through. The high number of those tiny tubes and their significant surface area allow the filter to have one of the fastest flow rates available in the world. This high flow rate makes our filters easily utilized as point-of-use solutions, which has eliminated the need to store water – one of the leading causes of contaminated water throughout the world.

Each Sawyer filter is certified for ABSOLUTE microns; that means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 micron in size. This makes it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer PointONE™ biological filter. At 7 log (99.99999%) the filter attains the highest level of filtration available today.

Sawyer’s revolutionary technology has also been tested and verified by the United Nations, and is currently being used in more than 70 countries around the world. Sawyer’s filters are so powerful, they could not actually be used for kidney dialysis anymore, as they would now remove beneficial particulates from human blood. They’ve been field tested for years by dozens of companies, professionals and are solving the global water crisis for hundreds of thousands of individuals internationally. When it comes to ensuring the safety of those who have trusted us to provide the most advanced solutions on the market, nothing less than 100% is good enough. All Sawyer Hollow Fiber Membrane filters are small, portable, easy-to-use, reliable, inexpensive, and can last a lifetime without needing to be replaced.

Service excellent as usual, not used the filter yet but all looks like a very flexible and usable bit of kit. I'm going to put it inline on the camelbak.

This my second Sawyer Mini as I was daft enough to allow my first one to freeze on my last trip out. Although the unit still worked fine there is no way of knowing whether the filter has been damaged to the point that it will no longer filter undesirables out of the water.
I've used the Mini for some months now and can honestly say I dont think I'll ever use any other filter. The flow rate although not super fast is as good as any filter I have used and has the advantage of being simple and having little to go wrong with it (just dont let it freeze - keep it insulated from the ground in spare clothing or the bottom of your sleeping bag, but be sure to suck the excess water from out of the unit first). Its also very light at 60g for the unit on its own.
Fantastic service from Rose and Bob and company as always - swift, pain free delivery and a complimentary bag of Skittles!

This was a last minute purchase (in an endeavour to lighten my load a little more!) just before I did Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk and words cannot describe how pleased I am - it's an incredible piece of kit, does exactly what it says on the box and is worth every penny of the (remarkably low) price. I did find that filling the bladder by simply holding it under the surface of Ennerdale Water and Griosewdale Tarn somewhat difficult - probably because the bladder is quite stiff - but easily remedied - I had a plastic 500 ml "dirty water" bottle so I filled that first and then poured the contents into bladder. Sorted. That notwithstanding, I thoroughly recommend this item. As ever the service from Backpacking Light was outstanding. Thank you.

One of those products that come along very rarely. IMO it flattens the competition. Not only does it have a far greater capacity than any other filtration device that I've seen, some 380,000 litres, but its also the most finest I've seen, 0.1 micron . To top this of its also one of the lightest, one of the most versatile and one of the cheapest and even gives you an easy way to clean it in the field.

Honestly believe this filter will take some beating and will be a regular sight in many a backpackers rucksack for many years to come.
