I purchased the Life Straw to put in my vehicle as a backup for the Life straw water bottle. (I also purchased the Life Straw water bottle). Why? Because I travel and sometimes I cannot stand the smell or taste of the municipal water in some areas. I have also realized, after reading the bottled water labels, that most of the bottled water I have purchased is municipal water. It appears many people use these straws for hiking. Mine is intended for urban use and hiking!
This is a quality water filter, filtering at .2 it provides all of the necessary filtration for international trips as well as locally, i have used this in one of the most poluted rivers in canada and tasted nothing and not been infected with anything. I would recommend this for a single person backpacking trip or a car emergency kit. If you're looking for a cheap but reliable water filter, the LifeStraw is a great option.
"I went to Haiti with this and it saved my health"
My friends and I are in a non-profit organization and went to Haiti last Christmas break. Because boiling water completely is apparently a waste of time almost my entire group became really sick and spent the two weeks with extreme diarrhea. I didn't. This relatively cheap straw was an absolute lifesaver and allowed me to drink both dirty and most likely infected water as if I was drinking out of a plastic bottle. Could not recommend this product more. It was a gift from my parents before I left and I cannot thank them enough for the gift of an uncorrupted stomach.
I've stuck this thing in skanky puddles, city ponds, pools of water in tree stumps, and I feel just fine! Now what I do is take a water bottle with me and scoop the water from the creek, and hike with it. When I need a drink, I just put the lifestraw in the nalgene bottle and sip. When I cook dinner, I just boil the lake water and of course that kills anything bad. So for $20 it's hard to beat. I'm happy. There's a big humanitarian side of this product too, which is cool.
