Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact life saver I brought 2 metal lifestraws I’m with the search and rescue in nevada. We are always concerned with weight in our backpacks. Life straw provides compact , light and life saving equipment. I tried it in a relative clear rapid moving stream. Water tasted good and refreshing. No side effects a few hours later. Next step will be more turbid water. Just need a little more guts to try LoL

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of mind We bought a dozen of these plus replacement filters so we have them for our “disaster go bags”, in our cars and for travel to countries where sanitation is questionable. So nice to be able to know we’re not ingesting microbes and diseases as souvenirs. Great to know in case of emergency, any source of water will be safe for us to drink and these Lifestraws may save our lives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not working I have this one, on the photo. Not used since I have bought. Maybe 5-6 years. But it's not working. Not sucking the water. Shall I put it the water and wait? Or filter has dryed and not able to use anymore? Please help me.

I purchased my lifestraw steel several months ago to have in my car in case of an emergency. In the recent subzero temps, the straw was basically frozen. Will the product still be safe to use after it thaws?

Asked by: Gringer
The recommended temperature suggestions for our products are: 33 degrees Fahrenheit/1 degree Celsius 140 degrees Fahrenheit/60 degree Celsius Note that if the LifeStraw has water in it and is stored in freezing conditions, the creation of ice within the membrane can damage the filter by expanding the pores with the expansion of the ice. Therefore, we recommend keeping LifeStraw products, more specifically the membrane filters close to your body when hiking or traveling in freezing temperatures to ensure any water or vapor inside the filter does not freeze.

Dear Lifestraw, I am considering buying the Lifestraw Steel from Amazon. I really like how durable and strong it is. Could someone tell me where it is made? I could not find this information in the specs. Thank you, Landen

Asked by: Landen
All LifeStraw products are designed in Switzerland and made in South Korea.

How does one determine when a filter needs to be replaced? It would be very difficult to track how many liters have flowed through the straw. If the filter stops filtering, one could risk getting ill from bad water. Thank you. 

Asked by: Bruce
My experience is that it became difficult to draw water through straw    So keep back up ones     I also just had brand new ones that wouldn’t work   Luckily I had purchased several before my camping trip     I am not an expert on this subject  others may know more

I have Disposable Life Straw instructions say: Upon first use or anytime the filter is dry, uncap both ends and stand it up in "Safe water" for 20 seconds to allow water to prime the filter. What do I do if no "Safe Water"? Can I still use it?

Asked by: Yardbird
The filter can be primed in any body of water you will be drinking from. This is an outdated manual, and we apologize if this has caused any confusion. Please feel free to follow up with us at info@lifestraw.com if you need more assistance.

It states, "REMOVES DIRT & SILT" but an answer to a prior question is that it does not remove dirt and silt. Can we clear the contradictions please.

Asked by: Anony
This product does remove dirt and silt. We will correct the other answer. We apologize for the confusion!

When the carbon filter goes out do you have to replace it or can the steel go without it

Asked by: custom chicano
Please note that will you can use the filter without the carbon capsule, you will lose the two-stage filtration. This means there may be leaking and the product will no longer reduce the smell and taste of chlorine and pesticides from water.
