LifeStraw Steel Personal Water Filter
You can go three weeks without food, but only three days without water. Unfortunately, most natural water sources (besides ground springs), can make you pretty sick. Silt in water can contain PCBs, chlorides, sulfates, and dangerous bacteria like E. coli. That’s why a LifeStraw comes in handy. The LifeStraw Steel weighs just 4.4 oz and requires no electric charging or batteries, and it has a two-stage filtration process that removes bacteria and protozoa from water—just dip it into a water source and start drinking. Plus, the Steel lowers bad odors and has no aftertaste, since it doesn’t use iodine. An activated carbon capsule in the straw cuts down on chlorine and organic chemical matter, too.
