I am a huge fan of the LifeStraw, which can filter up to 1000 liters of water. Then I discovered a filter in the same price range, that can filter even more. I’m talking about 100,000 Gallons of Water for your Bug Out Bag.
100,000 Gallons of Water for your Bug Out Bag
I have many LifeStraws. I give them as gifts. I keep them in my car. I thought the Lifestraw was the best of the best.
I’m not disputing the greatness of the LifeStraw, but I recently stumbled across a filter, that I think is better.
That filter is the Sawyer Products Mini Water Filtration System!
I’ll give you some specs and let you decide for yourself.
- 1 gallon = 3.78541 liters
- 1 liter = 0.264172 gallons
Technically, it sounds like the Sawyer beats the LifeStraw, but there are other features that make this even better.
- The Sawyer Mini High performance filter fits in the palm of your hand
- The Sawyer Mini attaches to included drinking pouch, standard disposable water bottles, hydration packs, or use the straw to drink directly from your water source
This filter, with it’s small size, and it’s many options for use, really brings some flexibility to my filtration plans and takes up almost no space in my pocket or backpack!
I love the LifeStraw and I’ll continue to use them and give them as gifts, but you can bet that I’ve already bought a few more Sawyer Products Mini Water Filtration Systems and will probably be using them as my default for water filtration in the field and for emergencies!
