Lifestraw® Personal Water Filter
Perfect for any survival kit, or handy enough to throw in your backpack. Designed to provide clean, safe drinking water in any situation. Weighing only 2 ounces, the Lifestraw® allows you to drink directly from a water source such as a creek, or from a bottle. The filter removes 99.9999% of bacteria such as E-coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter, Vibrio Cholerae and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. Also removes 99.9% of protozoa such as Giarda Lamblia, Cryptosporidium Parvum and Entamoeba Histolytica.
Rigourous laboratory testing conducted by the University of Arizona found that Lifestraw®'s performance exceeded the USA EPA water filtration requirements for bacteria and parasites.
The hollow fiber membrane filter lasts a long time, filtering a minimum of 1000L (264 gallons) to 0.2 microns.
