That looks pretty nice

Just like the Squeeze, except it weighs 1.4 ounce instead of 3 ounces

Is that 1.4 ounce dry weight?

You can either screw it on a bottle or do inline

A little cheaper than the Squeeze

Why is it lighter weight? Is the filter media smaller? Is the case smaller?

What is the retail price? Looking around the web it appears to be $24.99 retail, with free shipping (weeks) on Ebay.

A review of the Mini is here and answers some questions above:

MLD has it for $24.

Looks like the same filter, lighter case, inline connection and screw-on connection on both sides. Looks good!

I looked at sticksblog

1.8 ounces wet (after you shake it out "like a madman")

maybe 2 ounces in a freezer zip top bag

Stick said case was clear. I wonder if you can see the filter media?

I blew out the original washer on my Squeeze last weekend. That's all the excuse I needed.

Well I was just way too excited about my new Squeeze and then I see this.... I jumped the gun by about a week it seems. Might have to justify gifting that to a friend and picking up a Mini.

Backflush on 09/19/2013 14:15:54 MDT Print View

I'm curious if Smartwater bottle sport caps still work with the new filter as a backflush? Anyone know this?

TIA

Seeing that I purchased my Sawyer three months ago, it only makes sense that I just ordered the mini.

I really need a 12 step program..

Well, I might be the only BPLer who is glad they held off on getting the original squeeze! ;)

Lighter, more compact, more versatile, female threads and nipples on inlet and outlet. Seems like a perfect revision to the squeeze. I wonder if they're even going to continue making the original squeeze as this one seems better in every way.

Re backflushing: Since it has internal threads on the outlet, can't you use any bottle it'll screw onto to backflush it now? Or with a bladder system by connecting the drink tube to the outlet nipple (of course, do NOT use your dirty water bag to backflush!)? If so, yet another significant advantage over the original squeeze.

Definitely time for me to upgrade my water filter!

Had been holding off on getting a Sawyer, so this was perfect timing. For solo trips I generally just drink untreated water (usually OK here in NZ) and use tablets to treat a bulk load overnight. However, the Sawyer mini should be great for family trips when I like to treat water and people don't always want to wait 15-30 minutes for their drink:).

Where are you seeing it on amazon? When I do a search for it, it comes up as unavailable with no price listed. Can you link, please?
