Lightweight and easy to clean, this is the perfect survival tool for hikers and campers alike. The LifeStraw will remove bacteria, parasites, microplastics, dirt, sand, and cloudiness so you’re left with fresh tasting water that meets US EPA & NSF P231 drinking water standards.

There is a range of features that set the LifeStraw apart from its competitors, so much so that it was awarded Tme’s Best Invention of 2005 award, among many other accolades.
