Sawyer MINI Water Filter
just about to order a "Life Straw" when I read the post from "coyotebc"
about the Sawyer water filter. Tue Dec
23, 2014 4:54 am: "I used the life straw
and it works quite well however I prefer the similarly priced sawyer mini-filter.
It does everything the life straw does plus you can use it for filling
containers and such."))
for posting this coyotebc!
I looked it up and knew this was the mini filter I
really needed. I ordered one and it arrived a couple days ago. I'm impressed
with the price, size and features the Sawyer has over the Life Straw.
The features I like about the
Sawyer over the Life Straw:
1. It can
be used like a simple straw to get drinking water from a pond, river or bulk
comes with the back flushing/cleaning syringe.
comes with a bag that you can fill from the available water source, attach to
the filter then either squeeze a stream of filtered water into your mouth, fill
your water packs drinking bladder or best of all you can squeeze a stream of filtered
water into your cooking pot for your meals.
very small and easy to pack, for a size reference the straw shown is 7 inches
long and the bag rolls up into about a 1 inch diameter. 5. The price just $15.00
This video below shows all the
features of this filter:
