I opened the LifeStraw Go bottle today, read all the instructions and followed them explicitly. I admit to being nervous as this filter is not fine enough to filter viruses like the bigger LifeStraw filters and some other brands of water bottles. As such, I will not give the bottle more than 4 stars without that capability.
In any case, I stopped by Lake Topaz on the California/Nevada border, scooped up some water and sipped it down over the next couple of hours. I'm writing this now 9 hours later and feel no ill effects as of yet. So far so good LifeStraw Go!
After reading so many other reviews, I was skeptical about the suction required to drink and the fragility of this bottle. 1
) suction: I admit I'm surprised at how easy it is to drink from the straw. Although the flow rate might be a little slower than my camelback straw water bottle, it's not a significant decrease. I've got to say, I really don't understand how this is a complaint unless some people are suffering from defective filters or user error.
2) Fragility: The bottle seems sturdy enough so far and although I haven't smashed it against anything, I did gently knock it around with no damage. I plan to use it daily to drink from the mountain streams out here in the Sierra Nevada mountains over the next few weeks and update this review as I go.
Update: So I dropped a few stars on this product because the flow rate decreased to zero after letting it sit for a few weeks before picking it up again. I imagine it would probably have continued to work had I used it daily but as I don’t live in a third world country, I only need it periodically. If I have to buy a new filter for every time I want to take it hiking or camping, it isn’t worth the cost compared to other options on the market.
When I received my bottle, I fell into the latter category. My face hurt after a few sips.
If you remove the carbon filter at the top altogether, the straw is very easy to draw water through. If you have a straw that is difficult to draw through, you can try the following small rework to see if it helps you. For me, it made it bearable to use the straw with carbon filter installed, after this small adjustment.
1. Remove the carbon filter from the top of the straw
2. Pry open the plastic casing with finger nail
3. If you can see the seam on the top of the plastic casing (this reduces the surface area for water to pass through), gentle remove the carbon bag
4. Re-position the bag with seams along the cylindrical wall of the plastic casing
5. Gently push and wiggle the bag back into the casing, and replace the cap
6. Put the carbon filter back into the straw and check to see if easier to draw water through the straw

I DID NOT GET ILL.
I filled this up from the tap nearly everywhere I visited (I only didn't when the water from the tap had pieces of something in it - and the main reason for this was to not stain the filter).
It was really easy to use and I saved A LOT of money on bottled water. When each bottle is $1-2 and you have to buy up to 3 a day, this is a real money saver when travelling for any period of time.
The cost of this was less than the bottles of water my friend bought over 2 weeks travel.
The other positive of this is that there are very few recycling facilities available where I was travelling, so this is also very environmentally friendly as I was not using the volumes of plastic that everyone else was.
I would definitely recommend buying this if you are thinking of going to any country where the tap water is not safe to drink.
La en l'état je suis obligé de la garder parfaitement verticale à l'extérieur de mon sac pour ne pas qu'elle se renverse dedans. Elle est donc exposée aux uv (pour une gourde en plastique c'est franchement pas top) et aux contaminations extérieures (en bref elle traine partout à la moindre intention) . Je vous laisse imaginer comment on nettoie la tétine avec de l'eau propre dans la jungle... Ben on peut pas.
Donc en résumé cette gourde est un calvaire, elle cumule les contraintes. J'en ai acheté deux, elles ont toutes ce défaut, et j'ai passé mon voyage à les pister pour pas qu'elles mouillent trop souvent mes affaires ou qu'elles traînent dans des endroits pas propres. Je regrette doublement.
En revanche la filtration et la cartouche de charbon actif, rien à redire, ça fonctionne bien.
Ce qui me fait dire que je ne saurais trop vous conseiller de vous rabattre sur une paille classique avec une gourde en alu avec un goulot assez large ou bien une poche à eau que vous dédierez à de l'eau, contaminée ou pas, mais à ne boire qu'avec la paille.
Leur gourde n'est vraiment pas au point, passez impérativement votre chemin.
I'd say this is better for emergencies than adventures. As such, I'm keeping it in my car but it's back to other bottles for adventures.
- The lid seals well on the bottle with no leaks
- The mouthpiece doesn't leak when closed - however, water can get through the mouthpiece if it is not closed shut - when I turned the bottle upside down with the mouthpiece open there was a constant dripping of water and so it's important the mouthpiece is fully closed when in a bag - I don't see this any different to other bottles of this type though
- I found the water flowed very easily on drinking - hardly any more effort than a normal drinking bottle - however, the mouthpiece does come with a clear protective (hygiene) thin plastic sleeve on it over the silicone (like for example mouthwash often has over the cap) - it must be removed - this protective plastic actually has a small hole in it - I inadvertently tried the bottle without removing it because there is nothing in the instructions about it and it's not immediately obvious that this plastic sleeve should be/can be removed (being clear shrink wrapped film - I wonder if others who found it difficult to get water through left this in place?
- The taste of the water was no worse - in fact I would say better - than the fresh water straight from my tap I tested it with - absolutely no other residual taste
Looking forward to trying it out for real on my next big hill walk
Max 650ml water at a time which means that the bottle will need to be re-filled during the course of a day.
Have purchased a pair of activated carbon capsule filters as well, and these are easily replaced by pulling the used one off the top of the straw. A bit finicky but only needs to be done once a few months depending on the amount of water filtered.
Will be using this LifeStraw on an upcoming trip to India.
Edit: for a more versatile system check out the sawyer squeeze / sawyer mini filtration system. A more expensive version of the go is available which has a carbon element for removal of "some" dissolved chemicals / pesticides etc. from the water (this one just filters bacteria, large particles and parasites). None of these can desalinate seawater or remove dissolved tastes like salt, coffee etc. You may have seen people use a lifestraw to drink wee and gag when they find it still tastes bad - well duh.
1. it soaks everything it's stored with
2. you don't have drinking water available when you want it
3. you don't know if the leaked water is filtered (safe) or from the dirty side (potentially containing all sorts of nasties)
I think it's the cap design that's the problem - the fold-away straw. For a £30-odd bottle that's disgraceful design.
Look elsewhere, this isn't the bottle you're looking for.
I also found out that one of the designers of Lifestraw used to work at the same place I was working and they had provided a lot of the local schools I was teaching in with Lifestraw water filter systems for the school kids, very impressive!
