LifeStraw: It's all in the name.

     Every month I receive an issue of Outdoor magazine, and every month I am impressed with the content and information in it. I especially like to fumble through the ads of gadgets and gizmos in the back few pages. That's where I came across the LifeStraw. Its is a fully portable, instant use water filter. It weighs only 8 oz, can filter at least 1,000 liters of water and removes 99.999 of waterborne bacteria. This device has no moving parts and requires no batteries. It is the ultimate survival tool for the minimalist. Time Magazine named the lifestraw invention of the year in 2005. Here is the best part:

Each Lifestraw purchased is a Lifestraw that is distributed to schools in Africa!!

     Not only are you getting a great product, but you are literally saving lives across the world.

     I have purchased two of these for myself but I haven't tested or used them yet. They have a three year shelf life so I will use them by then, but until then I keep them for emergencies. Here is a video from Lifestraw.com  about the product.
