Have you ever gone on a long hike or expedition, and you suddenly found yourself running out of water…? If you ever manage to find water along the way, you can absolutely drink it to quench your thirst; however, without proper caution and procedures, such can be a very dangerous act because the water could have been contaminated.
Given such situations, it is of course always best to bring along a water filter and/or purifier — no matter if you’re trekking out in the wild or simply venturing out in foreign cities.
When it comes to some of the ways that you could purify questionable water, there are pumping filration items, iodine tablets, and the good ol’ boiling method. But my problem with these things is that they are respectively tedious, bad-tasting, and time-consuming.
So when I was given the chance to try out LifeStraw which could potentially answer all of my problems, I was more than willing to give it a try. And after months of trying it out on hikes and even on simple day trips to cities and towns that could possibly have dirty water, guess what…? I fell smitten with it.
Today, LifeStraw has truly become one of my travel essentials!
