The Sawyer® Water Filtration System allows you to effortlessly filter 2 liters of water while you spend your time setting up the tent or relaxing with no pumping involved.

Simply fill up the grey reservoir with unfiltered water, attach the filter and tube to the clean blue reservoir, and gravity does the rest. Once the blue reservoir is full, hang the reservoir from its handle and fill your water bottle, pots and pans or attach the included drink tube and a bite valve of your choice (sold separately), and use the reservoir as you would any hydration system.

This item is at the top of my list for all the equipment I have. It's super reliable. It works pretty fast. It's easy to set up and do. When I arrive at camp, we find water FIRST. And fill all of our bottles from the system right at the creek, then we fill the clean bag and the grey bag and bring them back to camp. After filling the grey bag, I can go set up my tent or collect firewood,while it filters 2 liters of water (about 5 minutes), and when I come back it's all done and ready to go. Four liters of water is plenty to make dinner and drink for an entire night, and then wake up and make breakfast for a large group of people.

Rated 3 out of 5 by blklabmad This would be the ideal setup "if" it included a bite valve and/or a way to shut water off with both bags so you could fill up blue bag and grey bag for later. Seems useless without, glad i have a good water pack, blue bag kinda useless the way it is. would have given 5 if equipped properly with everything you need with kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tnthekids Love it but 2nd year and filter won't unplug :(
Bought a year ago and used it in the BWCA and loved it!! Very easy to use and filtered at a great rate. Brought it home, followed all the cleaning instructions I could find (which are hard to find by the way). Went to use it this year and the filter refuses to do more than a dribble unless it is under pressure from the faucet. Searched for solutions and came up empty handed. Going to contact Sawyer in hopes they have an answer other than replacing the main part of the system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bruce Love the concept
I recently purchased the Sawyer 2 Liter Water Filtration System and I love the concept and I am sure that it works great as I have other of their products.
Two things to consider when you purchase this product: It will not fit into standard Camelbak or Source hydration carriers. The mouth is wider than these products, so unless you want to cut the opening wider these will not properly fit unless you want to have a gaping hole in your carrier, with will work in a pinch, but is unsightly. This was a disappointment for me because I really like the hydration carriers that I already have, now I have to find a carrier that will work with these, but I do have packs that they will work in.
Secondly, there is no kind of bite valve on the business end of the hydration hose. I am not sure why the marketing department found it necessary to have overlooked or neglected this, especially when this is a very necessary part of any hydration system There is not even a fitting on the business end of the blue hose in order to attach some kind of bite valve onto it. So if you purchase this remember that the system is not ready to use right out of the box. This is disappointing given the price tag.
Can Sawyer rectify this? Have one come with this system or at least give hints as to what they might recommend?
Would I recommend it: Of course, I recommend all of their products, it is just that this problem has left me scratching my head.
