I too saw it yesterday on amazon for $20 plus $5 shipping. I can't find it now though. It was a third party seller. Right now all I can find is this one:

This page has a picture of it, but when you click through nobody is selling it. Maybe they went out of stock since yesterday.

I bought from MLD.

Questions I sent to SAWYER and their answer as of 20Sept2013 concerning the filter:

Is the new Sawyer MINI™ Filter Hollow Fiber Membrane mass and volume the same as the Original Sawyer Squeeze Filter?

Would the performance and duration between back flushing be comparable?

SAWYER RESPONSE>>>>>>No, it’s about ½ which means you will clean it twice as often but the performance (removal rates) are the same.

Clarification on Ken's Post:

The 1/2 reference is only pertaining to backflush frequency.

The backflushing frequency would be increased in the weight savings of a smaller more compact filter, but if you prefilter silty water then you do not have to do it too often. Plus- back flushing is incredibly easy with this filter. So, even if it is a full double the amount of backflushing is not really a problem because it was never a problem at 2X.

On flow rate, is a wee bit less than the Squeeze but not much - I can suck through it OK using the straw.

Maybe clearing up a few other posts - A few sellers should have them now (or soon) and we for sure have then right now - I just packed up an order that came in 2min ago and it's heading off to the PO soon.

From a former small town business manager, support the small industries here. Heck with Amazon. I was one click away last night from sending Paypal payment for one, but decided I can wait till later.

Just got mine today And I have a question?? on 09/23/2013 18:55:00 MDT Print View

I received mine very quickly from Four Seasons Survival for about $25 shipped!!

Nice set up with filter, straw, backflush syringe, and squeeze bag.

Just wondering how you firmly attach the backflush syringe? It doesn't fit tightly onto the end of the filter. Maybe I'm missing something obvious?

I just received mine from MLD today. Thanks, Ron!

I'm basically embarrassed because I have a perfectly good Squeeze and still bought a Mini. There are times when I'm hesitant to spend money to save a few ounces, however, I like it in this case. For those who are considering the Squeeze system, I'd definitely pick the Mini. It's simpler and smaller.

vs Walmart Sawyer bottle on 09/24/2013 07:24:54 MDT Print View

funny how people had been asking for an inline-compatible filter for years and after everyone bought the Sawyer bottle from Walmart to make one they finally caved. This is a product many years in the waiting. I've loved using my inline setup using the bottle filter, and have had many friends do the same after experiencing the convenience. The fact that this is 1/2 the price and you don't end up throwing away a lot of plastic makes the deal even better.

jump on this people!

Cut the hose and attach the filter with the flow arrow pointing towards the end that you drink from.
