Survival Tip #252

Life Straw

I’ve used many a different forms of water purification over the years. I’ve used Iodine tables, sun exposure, boiling, and hand pump filters. Sun exposure always leaves me wondering how well it has been purified. Boiling takes time and leaves the water with that stale taste. My last two hand pumps broke while hiking (one the hand pump snapped, the other cracked when my pack fell). Iodine tablets are fast and easy, but the also leave that funny taste in the water.

So, I decided it was time to change out some gear and see what I could find with updated technology. When it came to water filtration the Life Straw seemed to be the new and improved version of past filters. If you have used one, I’m all ears, but based on the stats it seems to be one of the best options out there. Especially at 20$.
