UKSN APPROVED and perfect to be used as a primary filtration system or as a backup to the Lifesaver Bottle.
The sawyer is perfect for use in the UK but will not filter Viruses. Luckily the chances of needed Virus filtration is low in UK water but if you are looking for SHTF 'total' protection or need Virus filtration look to a stage 3 solution.
The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is rated to 0.1 micron (100Nm), weighs only 2 ounces, and filters up to 100,000 gallons (454,609 Litres)! An award winning system that 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 back washing can restore up to 98.5% of the filter’s flow rate. That means no expensive cartridges to replace, ever.
0.1 Micron Absolute Filtration
Our water filters contain a high number of tiny ‘U’ shaped hollow fiber micro-tubes that trap contaminants while allowing decontaminated water to freely pass through at a high flow rate — eliminating the need to store water and reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.
The Personal Filtration Bottle is certified for 0.1 micron filtration, meaning there is no pore size larger than 0.1 micron in size. This makes it impossible for harmful bacteria (like salmonella), protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella typhi to pass through the filter.
All Sawyer water filters meet or exceed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended removal rates.
- Ideal for outdoor recreation, hiking, camping, scouting, domestic and international travel and emergency preparedness

- High performance filter fits in the palm of your hand, weighs 2 ounces and filters up to 100,000 gallons (30 times more than comparable filters)
- Attaches to included drinking pouch, standard disposable bottles (28 mm thread), hydration packs, or use the straw to drink directly from your water source
Did you know:
- The sawyer filter is the ONLY filter that will be recommended to the participants of the Everest Marathon by the organisers Doctor, Wendy Dodds.
- The technology is based upon Kidney Dialysis technology. That is a hollow tube with the micropores in its walls. This gives for a much greater surface area for the water to pass through, within a very small space. The micropores are obviously engineered to be a lot smaller than those of a dialysis filter in order to be able to remove the harmful bacteria protozoa etc from water.
- The SP129 is guaranteed for 1,000,000 gallons (US). Or 3,785,412 Litres. If you ONLY drank water from your filter EVERY day at the rate of 3 Litres/day, it would last for 3,457 years! The MINI SP128 hasn’t reached this volume in its test yet and is only currently guaranteed for 378,541 Litres, or 345 years. Either filter will undoubtedly last for your lifetime in any case...
- Our filters have standard fitting threads, so they don’t need to be used with the sawyer bags. They will fit onto any standard threaded PET bottle, or even direct to the tap with our adaptor.
- All factory profits are put toward placing these filters into the AID industry.
