What Reviewers Say:
Reviewers find this product to be useful and convenient.
- This is a smartly designed product. It's long enough to stick in a water source and drink w/o having your face too close. It does not have a separate straw to loose of fall out like the other smaller products out there. Unlike the expensive and large LiveSaver product (as seen on TED) you do not have to fumble around and pour water into it at risk of contaminating the mouthpiece if water drips over. This appears to have all the filtration benefits in a compact size appropriate for a backpack. It comes in a sealed bag so it can remain dry and clean until you need to use it.
- I love, love, love my LifeStraw Personal Water Filters! We bought 8 of them (4 for my family when we all go camping or hiking and 4 for our home survival kits). The LifeStraw is very light in weight in comparison to the benefits it provides, it fits perfectly in the side or back pockets of backpacks or cargo pants. Unlike the other filters I have used is the past the LifeStraw offers up to 1000 liters of filtration, which is a huge improvement!
