Get one for your outdoor adventures, and one for your bug-out bag, which everyone should have in case of natural disaster (or apparently civil war, because the world seems to have gone mad).
Before everyone down-votes this post, you Really need to watch actual videos of people who use these routinely. Everyone switches to a filter with a pump or squeeze method of filtration.
Lifestraws are fantastic concept, but unfortunately, it is just too dang hard to use.
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.
So we laugh it off and they make fun of me for the next several hours as we trek back to our car. I was a little downtrodden that I had wasted money on such a worthless product, even when everyone was saying how amazing and lifechanging it was! I was ready to just toss the piece of plastic off to the side and forget it among the trees. But I held on to it.
Once I got home, I looked through the directions - and I realized my mistake. You are supposed to SUBMERGE IT before trying to get the water through. The water has to soak into the fibers totally before you begin sucking. So I grab a cup of water and dunk the LifeStraw into it, letting it soak for a few minutes. After the time passes, I suck... and WATER! I drink the whole cup up with very little issue. Frantically I call my friends and tell them how it wasn't a piece of junk and how we were just stupid guys who didn't read the directions.
Ever since I learned the correct usage, I've used it on every hike I go on. It's an excellent piece of equipment to bring along and works well when you know how to use it. So trust what everyone else is saying - this thing works!
