Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter

The Sawyer Squeeze Filter System 

The Sawyer Squeeze Filter System is the ultimate combination of high capacity and minimal weight. It includes 3 pouches (0.5 L, 1 L and 2 L) that can be reused hundreds of times. With a total field weight of 3 ounces and ability to roll up, it takes up virtually no space in your bag. 

All Sawyer filters deliver 0.1 absolute micron biological filtration, removing 7 log (99.99999%) of all bacteria like Salmonella, E. coli, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid); and 6 log (99.9999%) of all protozoa such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium. 

Kit Includes:
    3 - Lightweight Durable Collapsible Pouches (0.5 L , 1 L, and 2 L pouch)
    1 - Replaceable Pop Up Drinking Spout
    1 - Sawyer 0.1 Absolute Micron Hollow Fiber Membrane Screw On/Off Water Filter
    1 - Cleaning Syringe
    Cleaning and Maintenance Instructions 

Directions For Use
Simply fill up the pouch of your choice at a lake, stream or river, screw the filter directly onto the pouch and: 

1) Squeeze the bag and filter water into your water bottle or container of choice. 
2) Drink directly from the filter which has a built in push pull cap for on/off functions.
3) Attach the filter onto most threaded water bottles including 2 liter bottles.

A Water Filtration System that looks promising.
