If you’re planning any hiking or camping trips, one of the top items on your packing list is probably a filter: It’s always important to have access to clean, safe drinking water. Enter the LifeStraw—a lightweight, personal water filter that you can bring along in order to drink from from lakes, springs or other sources of H2O without worry of contaminants.
For one day—today,August 5—only, the LifeStraw personal water filter is has been marked down to just $11.99 as an Amazon Deal of the Day. Normally $17.47, that’s a savings of save $31% on this portable tool, which is the best price we’ve seen it available for this year.
A must-have for outdoor adventures—or even emergency preparedness— the LifeStraw claims to filter out 99.9999% of microplastics, waterborne bacteria and parasites. According to the company, it can filter up to 1,000 gallons of contaminated water before it needs replacing. It uses no iodine, chlorine or chemicals, either.
While we haven’t yet tested this thing, it’s got a 4.7-star rating from nearly 20,000 reviewers who praise its portability and reliability—some even referred to it as “life-saving.” It’s also one of the most popular things our readers picked up last July.
It weighs just 2 ounces, so you’ll barely feel it in your backpack, which makes it ideal for longer hiking trips. Plus, for every LifeStraw sold, a school child in need receives safe drinking water for an entire school year according to the company, so you can feel extra-good about your purchase.
Now’s an amazing time to pick up this Amazon best-seller at its lowest price of the year. It just might come in handy one day!
