The LifeStraw® Personal Water Purifier is a lightweight tool for your outdoor adventures. Using innovative filtration technology, it makes dirty water safe to drink by simply sucking it through the straw.
The LifeStraw® works by using a microfiltration membrane to filter water down to 0.2 microns (one micron is one thousandth of a millimetre). This removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of protozoan cysts (protecting you from Giardia, a common problem in Australia and New Zealand).
There are no chemicals and no power necessary – as the name suggests, it works just like a straw! Drink directly from lakes, streams or a bottle for clean water with no aftertaste. Once you’re done, you can easily clean the filter by simply blowing excess water out.
Add an LifeStraw® Personal Water Purifier to your pack for convenient hydration on your hikes, adventures and travel.
