Pink color if you don't care is at $13.54, other colors like black/blue is at $13.98. This is the LOWEST it has ever been in Camel history when I checked!

These filters are awesome. I used one on a 6 day mountain bike race and it worked very well. It does get clogged up depending on how dirty the water source is, but it comes with a large syringe to push water backwards through the filter to blow out any sediment. I put mine inline on my Camelback backpack. Just cut the tube to your water bladder and install inline. Super easy and you don't have to suck that hard to get water out. This allowed me to just 'dip' the bladder in a river and fill it on the go. I would highly recommend over any pump or UV light purifiers. Its so light you can pack a spare and not even notice the extra weight. FWIW...
edit:
It also comes with a bag you can fill with water. It works ok but I have read reviews that people have had them break or leak. I also found the bag hard to fill unless you could pour the water into it. It wont fill by dipping it into a lake. The filter also attaches directly (screws onto) to most water bottles. On my first filter (full size Sawyer) I used the bags without problems but also packed an empty water bottle for a backup.

Awesome! The bigger ones are also on sale. The PointOne all in one kit was ~$50 yesterday and is ~$30 today.

I just got a CCC alert that the price had dropped on this backpacking/hiking water filter [amazon.com]to $13.98. This is several dollars cheaper than it had been. It is now cheaper than the Lifestraw while being more flexible (allowing filtration into a water bottle as well as use as a straw) and having finer pores (0.1 micron) for filtration. I haven't used it yet, but reviews are very positive. With backflushing to clean the filter, it allegedly can filter up to 100,000 gallons. I'd take that with a grain of salt (which it cannot filter out), but it is supposed to last for a long time.

I am only familiar with the mini. Should I consider any of the other Sawyer products?

After reading the reviews on both and some sites, I went with the Mini. Main reason, for the price of 1 PointOne, I could get about 2 Mini when they have the same filtration levels.

yeah but only to get rid of particles and bacteria. it won't remove salt (or other chemicals) from the water

Doesn't sound like it, it mentions being able to remove bacteria but not chemicals.

also found another similar filter for few bucks cheaper. reviews look great but most of them seem to be bought in exchange for a free filter
