Sawyer Products SP150 Coupling for Water Filtration Cleaning

I carried one of these. I only ever cleaned my sawyer in town so I’d just fill up my platypus and attach the sawyer to it with the coupler. But, also as someone said the plungers are practically in every hiker box.

I would recommend upgrading to an Evernew 2L soft bottle. In my experience Platypus's leak. I would also recommend getting this little dude to make it a handsfree operation if you will be using a smartwater bottle.

I bet you could lose 0.5 oz by replacing the 2 connectors and the hose with just the Sawyer Products SP150 Coupling for Water Filtration Cleaning

If you go that route, consider also getting and using the Sawyer backflush collar ( This allows water bottle to be connected to "out" end of the filter. With filter threaded onto CNOC bladder, all you have to do is hold the bladder and roll the top to squeeze water into bottle. Wish I had had this during my last hike! Without it, you have to hold both the bladder and bottle.

Still comes with that giant ridiculous syringe that everyone throws away.

Sawyer should just concede, partner up with CNOC, and package their filter with the following accessories & call it a day:

This one. You screw it onto the clean end of the sawyer, then then onto the clean bottle. It also helps with backflushing.

Like pretty much everyone else, Sawyer squeeze for filtration. I finally got a CNOC Vecto bag this year for it, and its a gamechanger. I've also got a cheap coupler so I can use my smartwater bottle to backflush it (the coupler also comes in handy for just hanging bag+filter+bottle and letting gravity do the work).

I'm a sidesleeper, and I'm usually cold - the NeoAir X-Lite is by far the warmest and most comfortable sleep pad I've ever had.

Stove-wise, I just use a tiny, folding 25g titanium screw-on FOME stove I bought on Amazon. I only use a 600ml titanium mug as a pot, so it doesn't take much fuel to bring water to a boil. This is my third year with that stove, and I absolutely love it.

You don't need the full gravity kit. Get this $3 adapter (Sawyer Products SP150 Coupling for Water Filtration Cleaning and a CNOC Vecto for your dirty water bag. Use the hook at the wide end of the bag to hang it from a branch or use paracord to create a hang. Attach a water bottle or another bag on the clean end. Bam. Gravity system. I usually leave it hanging at camp while I'm cooking or setting up and I've got clean water by the time I'm done. You can also squeeze if you're really in a rush.

u/Guyler-R · 2 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

A battery pack to recharge the phone if it gets low?

Maybe replace the plunger with the coupling to backwash (this use to be $3.50 as an add on, so you can probably get it cheaper somewhere else)

u/bmk_ · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Here is a product sawer makes that fits the squeeze & smart water bottles/evernew bags perfectly -

$2.50 part - no modifications needed, definitely worth the cost.

I knew I forgot something I gave up on the bottle caps to backlash the filterm and found this guy also a hat. The jacket while awesome is definitely going to be replaced and I love my Montell versalite so Ill probably look at there stuff. Also didn't know about GG pack liner stuff. And I haven't thought about the Rvalue being low. My SO i's a cold sleeper for sure however but we haven't got her system down just yet but it will most likely include thermals for sleep and socks.

Edit: as for storms that tarps done awesome. Survived a storm at 9700 feet jus below paintbrus device in Grand Teton NP this summer, just have to pitch it right. And it ha's 12 tie outs but I admit I've not played to much with using less of them so it's a thought for sure!

u/marekkane · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

They're so handy. And they fit in the side mesh pockets much better than nalgenes. I also have one of these coupling bands that's supposed to make it easier to back flush. What I actually use it for is to let gravity filter the water from one bottle through the filter to the other while I lazily sit down. You just have to leave it a little loose, so air can get in the bottle.

u/artsielbocaj · 1 pointr/Ultralight

It's this one:

It allows you to screw two bottles (or bags, or a combination) together. Assuming you don't have a bunch of air trapped in there, it will gravity filter at a slow but steady rate. I put some holes in my included Sawyer bags to make a makeshift Evernew/Platypus style bag. I would stop at a creek, fill the bag, connect the bottle, hang the bag, and gravity filter while I did other stuff.

I have a good eye :)

Apologies for the wall of text, but I tend to ramble on topics that I'm passionate about, hopefully some of the ramble below will help.

Which Inflatable pad do you have, I'm guessing you're a side or stomach sleeper like myself?

I have the Klymit kings static V inflatable pad, I like that it packs really small and it's very light weight, but it's not entirely comfortable for side sleeping or stomach sleeping. I did once camp with my tent on sand and this was comfortable, but on regular dirt it's not.

I then tried the REI camp bed 3.5 self inflating pad. It's a self inflating pad which is a hybrid between a foam and an inflatable. At 3.5" thick, it's incredibly comfortable for side & stomach sleeping, but the drawback is weight (~5lbs) and it does not pack down small, I have to strap it to the outside of my pack.

If you are a similar sleeper like myself, you may want to check out hammock camping. I picked up an ENO double nest for just relaxing around camp or in the back yard at home and found it to be the most comfortable naps I've taken outdoors. While I can't sleep on my stomach, side sleeping is very comfortable and I actually fall asleep on my back which is unheard of. I'm not saying to run out and buy a full hammock camping set up, but maybe at the next REI garage sale, see if there is a really cheap ENO double nest and straps and give it a try in the back yard, you may want to convert afterwards :)


Headlamps? As in more than one? + a lantern? If I may suggest an alternative / weight savings..... This year I switched over to using a Olight S1 Mini baton because I always hike with a hat and the double clip allows it to slide right on the brim. It's also incredibly light weight and has several light levels. The back cap is also magnetic, so when tent camping, it sticks to the tent poles, for hammock camping I just hang it on the ridge line by the clip. The lowest level is 5 lumens I believe, which is dim but more than enough to see your foot placement on the trail at night. It also has the strobe setting which can come in handy if you find yourself in trouble to disorient an individual or an animal. (your post above mentions the fear of being a solo hiking woman, so this would be a good tool in conjunction with a decent knife). While it doesn't have a red filter, there are tons of youtube videos on how to make your own red filter cap for night vision savings.


A Camelbak is always a must have for me, I get dehydrated quickly, so I carry the 3L version. I also carry a smart water bottle on the exterior side pocket of my atmos. Reason being is they are significantly lighter than a nalgene or other plastic bottles on the market and they're very very cheap to replace. Also, you can use this bottle for water enhancers such as Mio, crystal light, or a hydration powder, without risking an issue to your Camalbak. I've found having Mio on a trip is a great mental pick me up when it's hot and I'm tired.

I have not used a life straw, but for any overnight or distance trip, a must have for me is my Sawyer filter and 1 squeeze bag. I went with the Sawyer because it will allow me to refill the giant 3L Camelbak with this adapter without digging out the Camelbak, (see the 4th picture down). The squeeze bag is for dirty water only, so I do not have to worry about dirty water contamination with other items. Lastly, with this adapter I don't have to bring the syringe to clean it, this adapter's threads will fit the smart water bottle, or a coke bottle, and allow me to flush out the filter. While I've yet to have to flush it on a trip, it's a good thing to have for after the trip and cleaning things.


I used to have a few must have items, but recently I've been weeding them out to save weight. Most of them are comfort items and I am the individual who packs with the mindset of "what if this happens.....", so I tend to pack things I rarely use. I really love having a warm meal, so my Jetboil is usually a staple. Since it is a gas burning stove, I could (in a survival situation) use it to boil water or start a fire to keep warm. However, foods can be re-hydrated with cold water, it might take longer and not be as delicious, but it saves the weight of the jetboil and I have the sawyer for clean water anyway, and a small bic lighter is a fraction of the weight, so I've done without it on the last few trips.

I've moved on to the mentality of packing items that are multi-purpose, try to cut out any redundancies to save weight. While I am no where near being considered ultralight, I've started incorporating their ideals into my packing to help out. You may want to check out their subreddit.

My buddy Scott is the one I always go to for questions related to backpacking/ hiking, he's been doing it far longer than I have, and seems to always be ahead on the new gear or techniques. He started a blog recently on his findings and tips/suggestions, it may be worth a look: Hack your pack

Hopefully this ramble helps!

u/kimchibear · 1 pointr/WildernessBackpacking

>On a longer trip if I had a second smart bottle you can push the bottle cap on tight enough to get an ok back flush.

FYI, Sawyer makes a coupling to back flush with water bottles.
