The Sawyer Point One Squeeze Filter is the lightest and most versatile filtration system on the market. With a total field weight of 3 ounces and ability to roll up, it takes up virtually no space in your pack. Th Point One Squeeze Filter System includes (1) 1L pouch that can be reused hundreds of times. Simply fill up the pouch at a lake, stream or river, screw the filter directly onto the pouch and squeeze the bag and filter water into your water bottle or other container of choice.

Am section hiking the PCT and recently decided to purchase the Sawyer filter rather than use my Katydn. Overall I like the ease, size, and weight of the Sawyer and didn't have any of the leaky bag problems I had read in earlier reviews on the Sawyer. The one negative I will mention is that the bag can be difficult to fill up unless you've got a good flowing stream or can place the bag directly under a waterfall or spigot. The bags just don't like to open up unless the water pressure (or gravity) is enough to keep the bag open. One work around for this is carry an empty plastic water (or other) bottle with you to collect your water in and then transfer it to the Sawyer bag.
