Drinkable water can mean life or death if you’re out adventuring in Arizona. When the temperature rockets above 100 degrees fahrenheit (38 degrees celsius) and the scorching desert sun zaps nearly every molecule of moisture from your body, you don’t want to be stuck without a way to rehydrate. Water sources are not only hard to find in the dry Arizona landscape, but they may not be pure either.
Sawyer Mini water filtration system to the rescue. It’s a favorite among Arizona explorers because it’s small and lightweight – and it cleans water from any source to better than 99% pure. No boiling or pretreatment with iodine is required.
This video review shows you how convenient it is to carry and how easy it is to use:
For only about $20 U.S. on Amazon, everyone who ventures out into the Arizona wilderness should have a Sawyer Mini in their pack.
