IF you have a decent outdoors/camping type store they may carry the exact connectors that come with the Sawyer filters and complete kits. They are 1/4" Colder quick disconnects.

I think it is either Sawyer or Katadyn sells a quickdisconnect kit, my local outdoor store (Rusted Moon Outfitters) sells them. Also the Camelbak quick disconnect kit is the same connector. They will plug right onto the sawyer filter or bag.

I have one on my camelbak so I do not have to remove the bag to fill it. Very handy.
