Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT for ultralight backpacking My wife and I have used the same Sawyer bag and filter for two years (approx. 80 days hiking)with NO failures or other problems. Some of our hikes are multi week adventures, so dependability is very criticle to us. We each have our own filters and bag, and neither has failed. We love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter products I don't understand the bad reviews. I have a LOT of Sawyer water filters and accessories and love them all. I have 2 Squeeze Point One filters, bags in every size, a Point One regular filter with water bottle, a Point Zero Two with bottle, the gravity bucket system and the inline hydration pack adapter. I use ALL of them and have NEVER had a problem with any of them in over two years of constant use. I have multiple set ups for disaster preparedness at my home and cabin. I carry one with me when I'm traveling to be prepared for a natural/unnatural disaster. I carry one in my cars. I carry one on my boat. I carry one with me hiking, fishing and hunting. Other reviewers have stated the bags break but I have yet to break a bag. However, I don't force the water out more than the capacity of the filter. If you use "reasonable" pressure, the water flows and empties the bag in a matter of a few seconds. Don't try to force it out like a firehose. I've never personally been with anyone who broke a bag but I'm assuming they used too great a pressure as I've NEVER ripped a seam. But REI's no questions asked guarantee should get you a replacement if you do break one. I am a Sawyer water filter Raving Fan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragile at best. Unreliable plastic bags that will fail you at some point. Reviews saying they have been using these for 2 years on multi-week adventures are fake at best. Go ahead and buy them, but remember this true review in the back of your mind. I cant get 20 liters of usage out of a bag over the course of a year. Use a Platypus bladder instead. They cost twice as much but will last 8x longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turn it into a drip filter! Man oh man. Last year, squeezing was kind of a pain though for the weight to price ratio, this is a fantastic filter. You can easily adapt this to be a drip filter. I found I had everything I needed already at home but desired a larger dirty bag. No extra weight either :-) Buy these larger bags and pierce two holes in the bottom where it wont touch the water in the bag, insert a string so it hangs upside down. Attach your filter and then get an adapter for your hydration bladder (use the grey tube that came with the sawyer filter and a little plastic nub from camelbak or platypus that allows you to attach the filter directly to your drink tube). Hang that bad boy up and let it do all the work for you. No more squeezing, its quick!!!! PS I found my 1 ltr platypus bottle kept losing thread, so I am running out to REI to grab these today. If my instructions are confusing, google some videos on sawyer drip filter diy. Watch a few as there were different methods and I liked some more than others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight water storage For backpacking I prefer several 32 oz bottles to a 64 oz. They are easier to pack and can be distributed to balance out the weight. I've used other compact squeeze bottles, but they tend to come apart after a half dozen trips or so. The Sawyer bottles seem to hold up better and since I carry a Sawyer water filter I don't have to worry about the threads matching up or getting a good seal. I do wish that Sawyer would make these available in a second color so I could easily tell the pouches containing filtered water from the pouches used to collect water for filtering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass these up I bought the sawyer squeeze filter set up to save weight. I'm glad I brought along a couple extra water bladders that fit the filter, because all 3 of the squeeze bags that came with the filter burst at the seam with in a few times of use. Terrible product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good filters, poorly designed bags In several weeks on the John Muir Trail, the filter worked OK, but the two bags that come with the system were a total loss due to major design flaws: 1. One recommended use is to put unfiltered water in one bag and filter it through into the other bag. Problem: The bags and caps are identical, maximizing chances that a user will accidentally drink from the unfiltered water bag. Why didn't they use a different color for each bag? 2. The bags are opaque, so you can't see how much water is in the bags. (Transparent or translucent water bags have been industry standards for years.) 3. The bags are manufactured to lie flat (see company's product photos), so it is nearly impossible to get more than 2 - 3 ounces of water in them by swishing or dunking them in a lake or stream. I had to use my cook pot to separately draw water from natural sources and pour it into a bag. 4. One of the bags leaked water between the bag mouth and the cap-- a poor fit suggesting poor manufacturing standards. In my time on the JMT, I encountered dozens of people using the filters, but only two people using the Sawyer Squeeze System bags with them. Everyone else was using them with other products.
