The Personal Water Filter that Could Save Your Life!
Water… It is essential for all known life to exist…
(Click any image for more information)
It is the 2nd most important thing that humans consume…next to air.
71% of the earth’s surface is covered by water.
The human body is between 55% – 78% water and requires an average of 2 liters a day to avoid dehydration. (In hot, extreme conditions you could need as much as 7 liters a day!!)
The U.S. Army Developed The Rule of 3s for Survival which states:
You can live
- 3 Minutes Without Air
- 3 Hours Without Shelter ( Assuming Harsh Conditions on Land)
- 3 Days Without Water
- 3 Weeks Without Food.
Enter LifeStraw, The Personal Water Filter that Could Save Your LIFE!
Measuring just under 9 inches long and weighing a petite 2 oz.
- LifeStraw is a personal water filter that can be deployed in a moments notice to filter your drinking water to a safe 0.2 microns.
- Removing a minimum 99.9999%…of waterborne bacteria and surpasses EPA standards for water filters.
- Filters up to 1000 liters of contaminated water WITHOUT batteries, iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals. (This is estimated to be over a YEAR of CLEAN, SAFE drinking water)
It works in a similar fashion to any drinking water filter you may have in your home, only smaller.
LifeStraw is perfect for…
Hiking, Camping, Backpacking, Fishing, Hunting or Anyone Enjoying The Great Outdoors.
Imagine your next trip into the field only carrying a fraction of the water that you need, your back will thank you for lighting the load!
Every been in the Jungle in Lao, nursing a hangover from drinking to much of the local rice whiskey the night before? I have, but unlike me, with LifeStraw you won’t have to make the choice between dehydration and “chancing it” with a water supply that the locals assure you is safe to drink.
Remember Hurricane Katrina?
How about the Flint Water Crisis?
Disaster can happen at any time! Manmade or Natural it does not matter there is usually very little time to prepare.
FEMA recommends that every person have a emergency kit containing a 3 day supply of food and water…
BUT after Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy it took more than the 72 hours for FEMA to arrive!
The Flint Water Crisis is still going on over a YEAR later!
This is why many experts now say you should be prepared to survive on your own for 7 days minimum and up to one year. With LifeStraw you will have a year supply of safe clean drinking water.
Testimonials from Verified LifeStraw Users
I frequently hike and camp in the backcountry all over the United States. Carrying the amount of water that I need to survive during these trips is just not feasible due to the weight. In the past I always carried a General Ecology First Need XL water purifier and refilled nalgene bottles with it. Since getting a LifeStraw I most likely won’t be doing that any longer since the LifeStraw is smaller and lighter than the First Need XL. I recently took a LifeStraw out for a test on a backcountry hike in the Rocky Mountains. Every stream, lake, or other water source that I came across I stopped for a drink. I was drinking fresh snow melt and also from lakes that are home to beavers and other wildlife. There was no added taste to the water and I didn’t get sick during or after the trip. -Charlie
If you camp out a lot, or simply prepared to bug out…..then this is for you. I will be buying more, just for bartering, especially when SHTF…….! -Powderkeg
As soon as I got this thing in the mail I went straight to the nastiest, most contaminated thing I could find. There just happened to be a sink full of soaking dishes that worked just fine. Couldnt taste a thing. I even spit some of the water out and it was nice and clear. -Nicholas Marksberry
I was heading out to Grand Teton National Park for a week and was looking to buy a water filter. I was surprised at how expensive many of them were! Seeing as how I am a casual hiker, I did not need a $100+ water filter. I just needed something for long day hikes where I would likely drink all of the water I had brought along. This water filter was perfect for that.
I filled up two nalgene bottles and once I drank the first, if I needed more water I filled the empty at the nearest water source and the life straw worked perfectly for sipping along the trail. -NoBias
Q. How much does LifeStraw cost and where can I buy it?
Q. What does LifeStraw not filter?
A. The LifeStraw is designed for the backcountry and will filter out 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of waterborne protozoa. Chemicals, salt water, heavy metals and viruses will not be removed and are rare in North American backcountry.
Q. Is LifeStraw BPA free?
A. Yes it is BPA free and completely safe to drink through.
Q. How long will my LifeStraw last?
A. The LifeStraw can filter up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons).This would mean, if you used the LifeStraw every day, for all of your drinking water, it will last for approximately one year. If you just use it for travel and outdoor activities, it will last much longer than 1 year.
Q. How will I know when my LifeStraw has reached the end of it’s life?
A. The flow rate of your LifeStraw will decrease, and then stop pulling water through once it reaches the end of its life. You can increase the lifespan by cleaning the LifeStraw after each use. The great thing is, you can never drink contaminated water from a LifeStraw; when the water stops flowing through it, you know it is time for a new one!
Q. How do I clean my LifeStraw?
A. After every use, backflush your LifeStraw by blowing a breath of air back into the mouthpiece to purge all remaining water trapped within the filter. If you have access to clean water, suck some into the filter and backflush it again. Give it a few shakes and leave both ends uncapped to air dry at room temperature.
Q. What is the storage life of my LifeStraw?
A. LifeStraw products use hollow-fiber membrane filters to remove contaminants from the water source. No chemicals or moving parts are involved within the filtering process, meaning nothing will expire. If stored in a cool dark place and allowed to dry out between uses, the LifeStraw will last until it reaches capacity.
Q. Is my LifeStraw sensitive to temperature extremes?
A. We do not recommend LifeStraw products to be stored in areas that are consistently above 110 degrees Fahrenheit / 43 degrees Celsius.Freezing the LifeStraw can damage the filter. If your LifeStraw product has been used and the filter has water in it, freezing temperatures can make the water expand and damage the filter. If your LifeStraw has frozen after use, you should not use it.
