Ultra-light and backpack /travel-friendly the LifeStraw is seen as the ideal accessory for hiking, backpacking, camping, travel, and emergencies.
The LifeStraw makes contaminated water safe to drink by removing bacteria and parasites, preventing the majority of waterborne disease. Use it to drink directly from streams and lakes, or fill up a container and use your LifeStraw to enjoy clean water on the go. The LifeStraw has an unlimited shelf life and once opened can provide an individual with more than 5 years of safe drinking water.
But I'm curious does it actually work? has anybody had experience using this? what countries do think you would need or not need to take it too?
