What people are saying

Every Amazon shopper knows how important it is to check a products customer ratings and reviews before you purchase. The LifeStraw two pack has more than 62,000 customer ratings and a solid 4.7-star rating from reviewers who have purchased and tested the product themselves.

"I would recommend them to anybody," another person wrote, adding that they've used LifeStraws "hundreds of times" to drink from lakes, rivers, streams and "never felt ill."

For outdoor adventurers, the LifeStraw is a great device to keep handy because it won’t take up space in your pack — and more importantly, allows you peace of mind to drink from water sources without worrying about getting sick.

"I don't leave home without one of these in my backpack," another said. 

Shoppers have called the LifeStraw an easy and quick alternative to iodine tablets to purify water or boil water to make it potable. The only drawback is that the LifeStraw is for personal use only, and not good for "large amounts of filtering" because it's used like a straw.

Verdict

The LifeStraw is a definite must to have handy for emergency situations, camping and hiking trips or when traveling to an area or country that may not have potable water. However, the straw is for personal use only, and not suitable for purifying large quantities of water for multiple people.
