The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter – Can you REALLY trust it?


Seen this blue tube before? It’s the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, and it filters a minimum 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction) and surpasses EPA standards for water filters. Check out this product review by Christianne and Diana where they put the filter to the test.

I’ve been hearing about this product for a while now and have always been extremely sceptical. […] If it actually does what it says on the package then it will be a backpackers best friend.

At ~$20 I think it’s one of the best cheap water filters out there. Want it? You can get it here or at Amazon.
