Why did we add these extra bags? Two reasons. One, for safety reasons. At Outdoors Geek, we don’t think it makes sense to go on an outdoors trip with only one water bag. By giving you two extra bags, we’ve provided double protection against a bag breaking. Two, it doesn’t make much sense to filter water 16 oz at a time. Give me a break.
The Sawyer Mini water filter weighs only 2 oz. and performs like a super champion. It has a warranty of 100,000 gallons! Yes, compare that to the Katadyn Hiker or Hiker Pro with estimated filter life of 200 gallons. It’s incredible! And, the Sawyer mini is easier to use.
