Easy to use and hygenic
LifeStraw Steel allows you to filter water quickly and easily. All you have to do is uncap both ends of the tube and put the LifeStraw® Steel Vertically half way into the water, take a few sips, and finally blow the water back out through the LifeStraw to keep the filter clean and remove trapped air.
The product requires no batteries or replacement parts, and filters at least 1,000 liters of water over its lifetime.
Perfect for hiking, travelling and camping
LifeStraw Steel can be used to drink directly from an open body of water, like a river or a lake, or a container, like a bottle or a glass. Its durable and slender design is perfect for areas where water may be unsafe to drink due to contamination by chlorine, bacteria or parasites.
