New Sawyer Squeeze bottle - how are they holding up? on 08/07/2013 15:20:06 MDT Print View

Thinking of buying the Sawyer Squeeze to replace my pump filter. The new bottles are supposed to be an improvement in terms of durability.

Now that they've been in use for a while, how are they holding up?

It looks/feels incredibly durable. There's no "seam" to split, you can feel deep ridges where the two halves of the bladder were stamped/welded together, so it's definitely stronger than the last iteration.

It honestly feels a bit more durable than my Platypus bottles.

No real strength testing, though, just basic use.
