answer 1
1,000,000 Gallons!!! Filtering at 0.1 micron.
This is the best light weight filter on the market. ( under 3.5 oz with 2 bags)
2 liters filtered in about 90 seconds.
The Sawyer Mini has a slightly slower flow and is only guarantied for 100,000 gallons - That's a lifetime of outdoor usage for most serious trekkers.
Because I sometimes have to use somewhat brackish water, I back-flushed the Sawyer to clean the filter element after about 20 gallons, but it is very easy to back flush. My MSR hasn't seen the light of day since I bought this filter 2 years ago.
(I also have the Sawyer Mini & the Sawyer 4 liter complete which is also fantastic! The 4 liter is used for base camp expeditions.)
