Bear Grylls has shown us that out in the wild you can wring out a large clump of juicy cow dung and enjoy a brief,
bitter squirt of brown juice. This isn't hydration, this is showing off – and we're not impressed.
No longer is there a need to carry around a bulky water-purifying bottle, watching it tantalisingly drip through a filter,
dreaming of even an egg cup's-worth of drinking water before sundown.
We present to you the LifeStraw - your very own portable instant water filter. Granted it's up to you to track down a
water source, but once you've found one (whether that be a stagnating lake or a muddy puddle), just sip through the
straw and bask in the knowledge that you're tasting safe drinking-water.
This powerful purification pipe removes 99.9999% of water-borne bacteria as well as a whole host of other parasites
and nasties so you can enjoy safe sipping away from home. (No one actually knows what that 0.0001% is but it's
probably good for you anyway*)
Scared? Don't be. It's been rigorously lab tested, and there is a bounty of Youtube footage featuring people enjoying
hearty sips of cool toilet-water refreshment.
Unlike a lot of filters which regularly need replacing, the LifeStraw filters at least 1000 litres of contaminated water,
so even if your a stickler for guzzling 8 cups of water each day you're looking at a handsome three years of usage!
Whether you're an intrepid explorer trekking round the world, camping in the Alps or just going for a pleasant forest
stroll - it's the perfect travel companion. So pop one in your pocket and get close to nature, really close.
Regularly blow through your LifeStraw after drinking to keep the filters clean and to prevent them from clogging.
Whilst the LifesStraw can filter contaminated water it cannot purify sea water.
