Literally a lifesaver

I saw the story about the lost hikers who used their lifestraws to get water from the small stream. Glad we have ours for certain.

I gave my son this for Christmas. He has not yet used it. It is interesting to note, according to news reports, that a couple in California who went for a day hike , became lost, but were found safe after 4 days, credit the Life Straw for their survival.

I bought this for my grandson who will be hiking the Pacific Coast Trail this Spring-Summer. Hopefully he won't need it but....if he does, he'll have it!
Good to have.

If you hike, you need this

You never know when you’re going to run out of water because of unforeseen circumstances in the backcountry. I’ve carried one of these ever since I went on what should have been an easy 10 mile hike, but when temperatures soared near 100, I realized I was out of water. There were streams, but the idea of contracting a water borne illness scared me too much to risk it. Heat sickness taught me to be better prepared.

Personal Water Filter

Simple and rugged personal water filter designed to provide safe, clean drinking water. Perfect for an emergency kit, hiking, or for use when traveling.


LifeStraw is a personal water filter that’s simple to use, small enough to fit in your pocket, and capable of filtering 1,000 liters of water—that’s enough water for one person for a whole year.

Since 2005, Vestergaard (the international company behind the product), has been distributing LifeStraw to people in developing countries who don’t have access to safe drinking water. Now, LifeStraw is available for consumers as well. Whether you’re traveling to a country where the water may not agree with you or filtering water from streams while hiking and camping, LifeStraw could be a real lifesaver. It also comes in handy for everyday on-the-go use.

LifeStraw utilizes advanced hollow fiber technology, a highly efficient method of filtration that requires no chlorine and no iodine. It has been shown to trap 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, including E. coli and 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites such as Giardia.

And the best part is that for each LifeStraw sold, a year's worth of clean drinking water is provided to those in need. more Their Story
