Sawyer Water Filter Review

Sawyer 4 Way Water Filter Review

A review of the Sawyer 4 way filterAll I can say is so far so good. I really like the convenience of this filter. I also appreciate the extras that come with the 4 way filter. You can attach it right to your Hydration pack and just keep on moving. Dip your water bladder into the river and close it up,You are ready to begin drinking.  I find that the more convenient it is to drink water the more I drink it. If I have to filter it, pump it into a Nalgene and spend 5 minutes doing it I tend to put it off. Anyone who has spent any time moving around at high elevations knows that it is very difficult to drink enough water. I have a feeling that this is going to save me at least a couple dehydration headaches throughout the years. The thing that really convinced me to buy this filter is the 1 Million gallon Guarantee. HA HA We will see about that! But I like the sound of it anyway..

On a side note this is going to be an absolute dream on the river in a drift boat/kayak. I spend entirely too much time floating the river in the summer and this will save me a lot of money on bottled water. I never can seem to remember in the morning to fill up water bottles from my faucet.

Another thing I noticed is that the water comes out of it very easily. Its not like drinking a Mcdonalds milkshake through a Using the sawyer water filterstraw, (which is what I sort of expected). You can actually squeeze the water right out! Fill up your buddys bottles in less time than it takes them to pull out their filter and begin pumping.

Kit includes: 34 oz BPA FREE Durable Water Bottle with a flip-top cap, Sawyer PointONE™ 0.10 Absolute Micron Water Filter, Faucet Adapter, Replacement Drinking Straws, Hydration Pack Assembly Kit, Cleaning and Maintenance Instructions. Life Expectancy: 1 Million Gallons Guaranteed.


Summer is in full swing and I have been using the sawyer filter for over a month now nearly every day. I can say it has lived up to my expectations. Rest assured you will get your moneys worth from this great filter. This sawyer water filter review has been a pleasure to do and I will continue to use this filter daily throughout the year.
