Works perfectly! I drank water where I could see the beaver poop in the lake and never got sick! I would be nice if it could connects to a pump to be able to drink powered drink! It's pretty easy to drink using this straw but you need to suck harder than on a regular straw.

Also, if you ever find that it's really hard to drink in it, just blow all the water out of the straw and start drinking again. It gets really hard to drink from the straw if you accidentally enter air inside.

Used others. Yes, it does what it's supposed to do. Does it well. Yes, it's handy.

That said, if you're looking at this, get Sawyer Mini instead. Lasts longer, is smaller, better filter, comes with other goodies, connects to drink bladder and common pop bottles. For only a couple bucks more.

tiny lightweight and potentially life saving.
I bougt it, dropped it in my backpack, and it now lives there.
it is small, has a huge capacity, covers on both ends and it is cheap when compared with any in line filters (especially if you take into consideration the filtering capacity)

taste is similar to other filters.

shape is particularly usefull if you want to drink of anything.
I have a ziploc with it so I can fill the ziploc and drink from it with the straw

The LifeStraw is the most important item in an emergency or bug-out kit. Along with a firestarter and an emergency blanket. From there, keep building your own kit. Ask anyone about emergency preparedness and you will get hundreds of different views. The LifeStraw has almost reached cult level for acceptance and credibility. This is one of those products that everyone agrees on.

Bought this for some traveling in Southeast Asia, and it has been great! I can drink from sources that I would otherwise avoid. I was a bit worried about the flow rate initially, but you can pull through a surprisingly large amount of water with very little effort. Not quite like a normal straw, but pretty close! Definitely worth the cost.

I bought a few of these to stick in my hunting backpack in case I should ever get lost and a day trip turns into a 2+ day trip. While I have never used this and hope I never have to use this, I like the idea of having it readily available as an option.

Although I have not personally used this yet (I keep it in my emergency kit), I have seen many demonstrations and read a few reviews about them. This is a great asset to have in any survival or camping kit as well, as anyone knows water is the most important staple for your survival. Overall very happy, 10/10

Very fast delivery, well priced. As they are emergency use items I hope never to be able to tell you how well they worked, but they look like they would do the job
Big kudos for the 'add on' programe which facilitated buying those cheaper items where the cost of shipping would be more than the item cost. Worked well for me here.
Pleased with the purchase.
