The multi-award winning LifeStraw personal water filter is the most advanced personal water filter available today. A “Best Invention of the Year” (Time magazine) winner, it 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 (weighing just 2 ounces) and compact (only 9 inches long), it is also great for travellers who do not want to rely on the quality of local water.
The straw-style filter design lets you turn up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water into safe drinking water, filtering out protozoa and bacteria.
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter surpasses EPA guidelines for E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium oocysts, rigorous standards for water filtration.
