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.
