  • Portable Water Filter Straw

    Often, in today's world, we think about protecting ourselves and our loved ones from both two and four legged attackers.  But we, also,  need to look beyond that which would aggressively attack us, to those things in our environment that may harm us, but that we may overlook as common place.  What I am referring to is our drinking/tap water.
    The Portable Water Filter Straw is mainly used for camping and for good reason. It is very easily portable since it weights less that an ounce and is only six inches long and less than two inches wide.  This possible life saving device can easily fit in a jacket pocket or the side pocket of a backpack.
    The water filter straw can turn almost any outdoor source of water into drinkable water within seconds, due to its .2 micron hollow fiber ultra filtration membrane, unfortunately it can not filter salt water or sea water.
    I would definitely take it on outdoor excursions; such as camping, hiking, climbing and fishing, but I think I would also take it while traveling.  At home, I can attach a high quality filter to my faucet, if I don't want to buy and dispose of hundreds and eventually thousands of water bottles.  But when I am traveling, when I might be in a hotel room, or a friend's or family's home and might not trust their water, I can discreetly pull this out of a pocket or bag and safely drink the tap water.
    Water is essential for human life, but it needs to be clean.  Water that is dirty from chemicals leeched from bad pipes or microscopic organisms can make people sick and can quite possible kill them.  We know outdoor water should be filtered before drinking, even if it looks clear and beautiful, but many area water systems are in desperate need of repair.  This water does not always warn us by being brown.  And periodically we are thirsty away from home without a bottle of water.  But having a portable water filter straw can go a long way to keeping us safe.
