Must have travel gear from the people who know how to pack
There is nothing worse than waking up at 3am in the developing world and realizing you’re all out of bottled water. What do you do? Go thirsty? Risk contaminated tap water? Build a solar purifier and wait for the sun to rise?
With the LifeStraw, the decision is easy. This is the simplest, cheapest, and most effective water filter I’ve ever come across. Anything from dirty tap water to an untreated stream becomes a potential source. No pumps, no chemicals, simply stick the straw in, suck water through it, and the LifeStraw does the rest. Presto!
