My husband and I are firm believers in being prepared. I’m talking about basic essentials for emergencies. Think about it most emergencies happen at night, so you need light. What’s one of the worst things that can happen in an emergency? That’s having your connection to clean water cut off. It’s a physical need to survive. Being able to store something so simple, but yet, life supporting, is fantastic. Needless to say, I was thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to review Life Defender’s Personal Water Filter Straw in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown.
They compare themselves to Life Straw. They say they can clean 50% more water than their competitor. This straw is capable of cleaning 396 gallons of water. They also clean 99.9% of waterborne bacteria and protozoan parasites. No chemicals are used in this Life Defender Straw. They also use coconut shell activated carbon to filter the water down to 0.01 microns. That’s pretty thorough. This straw cannot filter chemicals out of water. These are for regular emergencies, not horrible, they’ve tainted your water supply emergencies. I have been seeing home water filtration systems switching to activated carbon coconut shells for their replaceable water filters. I was very happily surprised that they have gone to using them in these Life Defender Straws. This straw has a 5 year shelf life and comes with a 5 year warranty.
These are perfect to store in home, take on the road for a trip, take hiking, camping, and more. They each come with a neck strap. They are so light, and easy to store and wear. I would leave it strapped to your neck when you bend down to drink. That way you wont drop it in the dirty water. You want to keep the top of the straw clean. It takes a few hard sucks on the straw to get the water flowing. When you are done drinking, blow hard through the straw a few times to clear most of the remaining water out. Then leave the ends open for it to dry out. This straw is also not for salt water. It will hurt the straw and you. Think about it, it takes up no space in your drawer to have a Life Defender Straw for at least every person in your household. I can’t even imagine not being able to provide clean water for my child. That alone motivates me to make sure I am prepared for any emergency.
