Been in situations where water was scarce & the water that was available wasn't 100%. The Lifestraw assures me & gives me the confidence that no matter what water source I'm drinking from, I am guaranteed that by using the Lifestraw I am drinking safe water. I recommend 1 for every family member. It is the best portable water filtration system on the market. 5 stars!!

The Life Straw is great if you need a water source while camping or emergency situations (natural disaster/bug out bag etc). It is cheap enough to keep extras around to be able to give out to others in need.

Yhe LifeStraw is the best thing that ever hit the market. It's easy and safe to use.
LifeStraw is a personal water filter that ensures no matter where you go, you will have instant access to safe drinking water. It’s lightweight and compact, which makes it perfect for hunting, hiking, and fishing. The LifeStraw is the most advanced, compact and easy to use personal water filter available today.
You can drink directly from lakes, rivers, or your water bottle. Simply put the lower part of the straw in the water, and sip through the other end. After drinking, blow back into it to clear the filter.
LifeStraw filters up to 264 gallons (1,000 liters) to 0.2 microns, which removes dangerous bacteria and protozoa. The removal rate exceeds EPA standards for water filtration.
