[Backpacker Gear] Water filter from Sawyer
Pipe water standards are varying all over the world, before drinking pipe water you should always check first, even if you just want to use for cleaning you teeth. Sometimes there is no kiosk or supermarket close, so used might want to drink pipe water.
I was looking for a filter for a long time, many of them are heavy and expensive, but finally I discovered the company Sawyer. Their filter’s are light and cheap, exactly what I was looking for, especially those two models: The “PointONE MINI” Filter (SP 128) and “PointONE Squeeze” Filter (SP 129), I got the last one
Here’s some data about the filters:
- 378.540l (SP 128) 3.785.411,78l (SP 129) are guaranteed
- SP 128 weighs 38g, Sp 129 91g
- All filters come with a bag
As mentioned above I’m using the bigger models for over a year now, used it during many trips and of course will continue that. I’ve never heard a problem with it and it’s so light that I always have a little space for that filter.
Even if water is short: Don’t Panic
