LifeStraw Water Filter

If you run out of bottled water and have to drink water that you find, the LifeStraw microbiological filter will filter out bacteria, parasites, microplastics, chlorine, and organic chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, etc.) Filters 1,000 gallons (4,000 liters), enough drinking water for an individual for over 5 years. (Does NOT take replacement filters.) This is a great emergency option if you believe you will have access to water that may not be safe to drink, such as from streams or puddles of rainwater. You will want to have a container to collect the water before using, otherwise you will have to lean down close to the water with your face. You may want to consider adding a basic water bottle, or purchasing the LifeStraw Go which comes with a water bottle.


Life Straw water filter. Excellent quality filter, great price. The only drawback is that it may be awkward to use if you are not a nimble backpacker.
