Review: Lifestraw by Camping Survival

By on November 11, 2013

I recently got a lifestraw in from camping survival for review. The lifestraw is perfect for hunting, hiking, and fishing! You can drink directly from lakes, rivers, or your water bottle. Simply put the lower part of the straw in the water, and sip through the other end. After drinking, blow back into it to clear the filter.

My Thoughts

I really like the lifestraw and think that it should be added to anyones bug out bag. Its a great feeling knowing that you have something that will allow you to drink right out of a river. Its small lightweight and easy to carry. If your hiking or hunting you might want to add one of these to your pack you never know when you may run into a pinch and need access to clean water. The flow at first when you first start to suck is slow but once you get water in the straw it begins to get rather easy. The only downside is that you have to blow out all the water when your done so that it doesn’t sit in the straw. But its rather hard to get all the water out. That is not going to stop me from picking up a few more as this is a great product and does its job. For $20 dollars this is a must have for anyones survival kit. Check it out over at
