LifeStraw Personal Water Filter
Winner of multiple prestigious awards*, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is designed to provide you with safe, clean drinking water when you need it.
Ideal for traveling, hiking, camping, and emergency preparedness situations, this ultra-lightweight (just 2 oz.) personal water filter has no shelf life and filters up to 1,000 L (264 gal.) of water. By filtering down to an incredible 0.2 microns in size, it removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (including E. coli) and 99.9% of waterborne protozoa, and it reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering out suspended particles.
It's also easy to use, as anyone who can use a drinking straw can use a LifeStraw: simply place one end in the unfiltered water source and suck the resulting clean water up through the top. Made of durable plastic, it doesn't require replacement parts or batteries, and because it doesn't use chemicals, there's no after-taste. Includes a lanyard, mouth piece, and end piece. Dimensions: 9" x 1". Weight: 2 oz.
*Winner of Time Magazine's "Best Invention of 2005" and the 2008 Saatchi and Saatchi Award for "World Changing Ideas". Forbes also called it "one of the ten things that will change the way we live."
