Source's new line of outdoor products in cooperation with Sawyer Mini Filters: Fill and re-fill your SOURCE from any source, thanks to the fitted in-line filter.  This hydration tube with inline filter connects to all SOURCE reservoirs with SQC (Quick Connect).Attach this filtering hydration tube to any reservoir - and enjoy pure water anywhere you go, without depending on tap or bottled water to refill your hydration system. The Sawyer Mini Filter eliminates 99,99999% of bacteria and protozoa, surpassing EPA recommendations. No chemicals needed - simply backwash the filter in intervals to ensure maximum water flow.

How it works: As you drink, the water passes through the side walls of the filter's micro-fibrous tubes, harmful bacteria and protozoa are trapped in the outer walls so you can be confident your water is safe to drink.

  • Highest Efficacy - Removes 99,99999% of bacteria (Salmonella, cholera and E.coli) and 99,9999% of protozoa (cryptosporidium and giardia), exceeding EPA recommendations for removal rates. No chemicals or batteries required.
