I have been considering buying a LifeStraw. Looking at the Amazon reviews, it seems that some people are not impressed & that many who gave it glowing reviews have not actually used it. So before I buy one, is there anyone here who has actually USED a LifeStraw? How do you like it? Worth buying?
Any recommendations for other filters?
Yes, few years a go while out commercial fingers for a summer I got it for my son. Water had to be hauled in or drink from a steam. Hauling water up and done a cliff ment that good water was too limited. My boy never went thirsty. Funny but the rest of the crew rather complain about the water shortage vs doing so
Etching about it.
I'll keep my guns, ammo, and second admendment--You can keep the CHANGE.
We have one for each of us in our BOBs. We tried them out with pond water, and really liked them. It's best to strain really dirty water through a T-shirt before using the filter, just to keep the gunk from plugging it up. I recommend them!
I have several of them in bob's. Tried one out to do some testing and I'm still alive . Takes a bit of suction to get water, especially with a new one, when the tube is empty. After that all you get is clean water. We'll worth the $20 or so, I purchased mine at bass pro.
When I was talking to the game warden about our bobcat problem I saw he had one in his back pocket. He said he carries it everywhere because he never knew where he would be working. He liked it. I have some small kayden filters that weve used for camping.
Dear Lord please grant me patience for if you grant me strength I'll need bail money to go with it.
I bought a couple of the lifestraws about 2 years ago and they work great. I just picked up my order of 2 lifestraw family (2 litre size) on Friday, opened one, but haven't tried it yet.
When you calculate the amount of water purified by a lifestraw compared to other filtration systems you won't hesitate to buy the lifestraw.
I like the idea that the company donates one lifestraw to countries in need for every one sold. Plus it's won awards.
