Lifestraw Personal Water Filter


A top piece of gear out of Chile; no questions, no reservations.  Active Junky testers, parched from extended afternoon traverses of lava flows, dipped fast and drew deep when water came within range.  At under 2oz, this tube of deliverance requires only momentary, exhaling backpressure to clear the bottom filter.  Trekkers estimated the water weight savings at over 20lbs, to say nothing of the stove fuel conserved from tedious boiling duties.  Under $20 buys you up to 1,000 liters of instantly drinkable aqua, stopping waterborne bacteria and parasites while reducing turbidity down to 0.2 microns.  No chemicals and delivering a steady flow rate, LifeStraw can be stored indefinitely for on-demand use.   Moving parts are left behind, as are iodine, chlorine and BPA.  While it seemed silly at first, the neck lanyard proved essential while hovering over streams and ponds.
