Here at Active Junky, we’re big fans of LifeStraw after traveling to Chile with the Go Bottle. The brand previously won us over in the Lake District, pulling its (feather)weight with the original Straw in mountain and forest streams. Now, our team was able to scoop-and-go on the fly from water sources all over Chiloe Island. When you are a) not able to carry massive quantities of water and b) unwilling to resort to plastic-consuming bottled water at every turn of the road, LifeStraw is the way to go.
Tester Quote: “Six ounces of weight to process 22oz of water with no batteries or moving parts. Awesome. And, the flip-top bite valve prevented leaking and guarded against contamination. Give everyone in your group one and hit the trail.”
