You'll always have clean drinking water in any situation with the LifeStraw® personal water filter! Ideal for hiking and camping, emergency preparedness and survival situations, the LifeStraw makes contaminated or suspect water safe to drink. It lasts for 264 gallons or one year of regular use, and removes at least 99.9999 percent of waterborne bacteria and at least 99.9 percent of protozoan cysts, using a hollow-fiber microfiltration membrane.

Also reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering particulate matter larger than 0.2 microns. No actual filtering work for you to do: Simply sip from the straw! Weighs only two ounces, 8.75 inches long. Durable, chemical-free plastic; comes with mouthpiece cap and lanyard. Recently featured on Discovery Channel's "Survivorman" series!
LifeStraws have been distributed in nearly every major international humanitarian disaster since 2005, as well as in broad public-health campaigns. In addition, retail sales of LifeStraw water filters help save lives around the world! Through the manufacturer's charitable donations, each Lifestraw unit sold in North America results in one school child in the developing world receiving clean water for an entire school year.
Also available in a water bottle.
