The LifeStraw personal water filter, a "Best Invention of the Year" (Time magazine) winner, enables users to drink water safely from most contaminated water sources. LifeStraw is ideal for emergency preparedness, as well as for campers and hikers who may be drinking from rivers or lakes and are unsure of the water safety. Because LifeStraw is lightweight and compact, it is also great for travelers who do not want to rely on the quality of local water.
LifeStraw is the most advanced personal water filter available today. LifeStraw surpasses EPA guidelines for E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium oocysts, rigorous standards for water filtration.

(Write a review) "Last week, we went hiking up a slot canyon in the Zion National Park wilderness area on a trail that leads to The Subway. Like an idiot, I took off without two water bottles. It was a 90 degree day on a 10-mile out and back trail. Two years ago, I bought a LifeStraw at REI, but never used it. It was my lifeline on this hike. Every 15 minutes, I got a drink out of ice cold North Creek. The LifeStraw worked perfectly. I had no stomach issues despite drinking heavily from the creek. Please buy yourself a LifeStraw just for these kind of wilderness situations where dehydration can happen quickly and weaken you. "My boyfriend and I went on a backpacking trip along the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin that ended in nothing but disaster. Night one our (very expensive) water pump broke and we were stuck in the middle of no where with no potable water and a 3 day hike out. Thank goodness he had brought along his LifeStraw because I can honestly say it saved us on that trip. It was our only means of getting clean water other then boiling it and we relied on it for the remaining 3 days of out trip in the back country. We used it to drink right out of rivers and lakes because there was barely any water along the trail. We figured we would get sick because the Straw is so small, light and compact that there was no way it could filter the all but bog water we had to drink but it did! We were 100% fine and the water even tasted good. I will never go on a backpacking trip without it again and highly recommend this product to anyone who is an ultralight backpacker like myself. "I had seen videos of this so-called "LifeStraw" and, after gleaning some information from the web, I was intrigued enough to buy the product, but did not have high expectations; after all, is it not just a straw? Boy was I wrong. Not only was the LifeStraw convenient to use - the user-friendly manual gets a 10/10 from me - but it managed expectations. Albeit, I am not someone who is particularly adventurous or takes pleasure in backpacking or hiking, rather, someone who is genuinely interested in sustainability. From filtering nasty, bacteria filled water to juices (for fun), the LifeStraw did not disappoint! Write a Review
