Used by ShelterBox so we know it's very good
Invented by Vestergaard in 2005, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter has been used in many of the biggest humanitarian disasters around the world, helping providing clean water to communities and protect them from waterborne diseases. ShelterBox famously uses this filter in its aid container, which is given to refugees in camps across the world.
Removes 99.9999% of bacteria
Now you can own your own LifeStraw, perfect for trekkers, explorers, campers and others who like to go off-grid and explore nature with no limits. Using a brand new innovation called hollow fibre technology, the filter will remove a minimum of 99.9% of waterborne parasites, and 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, so you can draw water from any spring, lake, pond or river. There are no chemicals or chlorine used in the process, so there’s no nasty taste – just fresh, clean water whenever you need it.
Will clean up to 1000 litres of water for you to drink safely
The filter can provide a minimum of 1,000 litres of clean water, and weighs just 56g – so you can slot multiple filters into your pack just in case. If you consider that most people need to consume between 2-3 litres of water today, that means the LifeStraw can last for as many as 500 consecutive days of travel or exploration. When stored at room temperature, the filter can last for up to five years, so you can even buy plenty of extras and keep them at home for your next adventure.
