Comments: I loved how easy this filter was to use and after reading some of the scientific tests have confidence in the filter. Simply fill up Dirty Water Bottle. I used the provided 500ml collapsible water bottle the whole time and it wasted though is starting to show some wear. Screw this to the Sawyer Filter and squeeze into clean water bottle. It took between 1 – 2 minutes to squeeze 500ml.
