What does 100,000 Gallons look like?

The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is rated to 0.1 microns absolute, weighs only 2 ounces, and filters up to 100,000 gallons!  This award-winning system is reliable and easy to use. 

The MINI can be attached to the included collapsible drinking pouch, inline on a hydration pack, on a standard soda bottle, or simply use the included drinking straw to drink directly from the water source.  How is that for versatility? Like all Sawyer filters, a proper backwashing can restore up to 98.5% of the filter’s flow rate. That means no expensive cartridges to replace, ever.
