View Full Version : Sawyer Water Filters vs Etekcity

I was on the AT for 3 days with my daughter. She needs a new water filter, so she was paying attention to everyone's filter. Most of the ones we saw were Sawyer filters except for the Etekcity that I have. Somehow I got a hole in my bag, so I contacted Etekcity asking where I could purchase another one. I did NOT ask for a free replacement. I asked where I could purchase one in two separate emails. There response: Unfortunately, we don't have individual pouches available for purchase. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

They advertise that the filter is good for 400 gallons but IMO their small bag will not last that long.

Sawyer filters are about the same cost and their additional bags are cheap. Just something to consider when purchasing a filter.
