LifeStraw Go incorporates award-winning technology into a refillable water bottle so you can carry safe drinking water with you on the go.
So what does it do? Well, if you stop at a river, stream, or even a puddle; fill up the bottle, screw on the lid, and sip filtered water through the mouthpiece.
Today LifeStraw is used in water products and projects in more than 64 countries around the world…
Really? I hear you cry, well yes… apparently so. For me this is a great bonus when out walking in that there’s less reliance on carrying water, which lets face it weighs you down. Now don’t forget you need to be sure that your route will encounter appropriate sources to fill your trust bottle, however I know of numerous areas on my favourite walks I could do this.

I don’t think I’d replace mt tried and tested fluid carrying methods, but as a piece of emergency kit this is great. That said, dependent upon where abouts in the world you are, Lifestraw could be a lifesaver!
