Better PRotection. Bigger purpose. That's the sawyer standard.

Every Sawyer product you buy is a contribution to our common humanity, bringing clean water programs to people in need domestically, internationally, and in disaster relief missions all around the world. We are 10+ years into relief programs and are very fortunate to work with over 140 charities in 80 countries, touching (and saving!) the lives of millions of people every year.


An uncompromising commitment to quality and testing.


To ensure every Sawyer filter is 0.1 or 0.02 absolute micron and that no harmful pathogens can pass through the filter. Every filter is 3X tested.

Sawyer does NOT batch test or statistically test for failure. Testing occurs after the fiber element construction and twice after casing assembly to ensure no harmful pathogens leak through the sealed case or internal o-rings.

~75% stronger FIBER STRENGTH

Thicker fiber walls and smaller inner diameter of the fibers make Sawyer fibers ~75% stronger than fibers of other typical hollow fiber membranes.

Stronger fibers allow for aggressive backwashing and shock resistance. Meaning each Sawyer filter can be continually backwashed forcefully restoring up to 98% of the original flow rate.

Absolute Microns

No pore is larger than 0.1 in the Sawyer® PointOneFilter™. Without absolute pore size, larger holes are present which could allow bacteria, protozoa, cysts, or viruses to pass.

No harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts can pass through the SawyerPointOne Filter.

All Sawyer filters will remove 100% of microplastics from
the water.

We take our insect repellents just as seriously as we do our water filters.
