The one draw back to the LifeStraw is that it does take a bit of suction to start and keep the water flowing. When you're at high altitudes in the mountains this leads to longer "drink breaks" since you can get winded pretty easy while trying to suck up water through the LifeStraw. However, its size and weight advantages when hiking mountainous terrain vastly out weigh this minor drawback.
Overall, the LifeStraw is awesome and I recommend it to every backcountry hiker that I know.
One item you can add to this.....paper coffee filters (cone type) are inexpensive. Place one over the bottom of the water filter with a wide rubber band and it will protect the filter with a lot less cleaning. The Water Filter will last 2X as long and cleaner water to drink!
UPDATE - 4-25-2016
After more than 3-years of numerous weekend and 2-week excursions, my very first LifeStraw would not produce anymore clean filtered water. I reluctantly open a NEW LifeStraw to complete the weekend of camping. It is tough to imagine more than 3-years of clean water from streams, lakes and rivers. I really don't know how many liters of water that was used, but I can say this....with the coffee filter attached to this unit it out last my friends LifeStraw more than a year. That alone has gotten to expand the use of this tremendously. Thank you LifeStraw, camping has been simple and healthy. I bought 8 more as backups!
UPDATE - 2-13-2015....
I have now used this camping several times. Now, I use a Portable Siphon Hand Liquid Transfer Pump with this unit. I can now add water to my pots, pans or my 3L water pouch easily. The suction usually will draw water for about 20 seconds; 2 cups of water in about a minute with the Transfer Pump!
I filled up two nalgene bottles and once I drank the first, if I needed more water I filled the empty at the nearest water source and the life straw worked perfectly for sipping along the trail.
One word of caution, if you have a nalgene with a narrow mouth opening, the life straw WILL NOT fit so make sure you have a wide enough opening. The description shows a 1 inch diameter but there is a plastic cover on the bottom to protect the filter that is attached by a thin piece of plastic. I uploaded a photo showing the LifeStraw trying to fit in a narrow mouth nalgene. As you can see it does not fit and even if you cut off the plastic piece it is still too thick, at least for the nalgene in the photo.
In fact, I've decided that whenever I'm leaving the country to take this guy with me. Why not?
