Water Filter, The Sawyer Squeeze.

Another new lightweight water filter hits the outdoor scene. How long will it be before we can buy it here in the UK i wonder.
But lets be honest, US$50 cost, at todays exchange rate =  (£30.50p), plus shipping and customs duty will not break the bank too much if you are desperate for a filter that cleans down to 0.1microns and weighs 85 gr. (that’s less the bag or your own bottle).


SP132 - SP132-Sawyer PointOne Squeeze Water Filter System
Info from the company website below.

The NEW Sawyer Squeeze Filter is the lightest and most versatile filtration system on the market. With a total field weight of 3ounces, it is extremely lightweight and packable. Fill up the included 2 liter pouch at a lake, stream or river, screw the filter directly onto the pouch and
1) Squeeze the bag and filter water into your water bottle or container of choice.
2) Drink directly from the filter which has a built in push pull cap for on/off functions.
3) Attach the filter onto most threaded water bottles including 2 liter bottles.  
The Squeeze filter is perfect for traveling abroad where tap and bottle water cannot be trusted.

 I won’t be changing my Super Delios filter for a while yet but for those looking for a new filter right now may find this article of interest.
I’m sure a UK blog review of one of these will be following somewhere.
