This item is great to have if you are traveling abroad and want to ensure you have clean water. It works great!

How much water does it hold, and how long does it take to purity the water?

At williamkitty. You don't have a wait time. You just simply put the straw directly in the water then you sip on the straw. It's instant.

  It purifies the water as you suck it up. It does not hold water. It's a purity and drink as you go. IMPORTANT. You must blow out the excess water after you drink. Remove it from the water source and blow and blow. This will keep it from clogging. It wil purity about 250 gallons of water. But I'd replace it Long before that point.
 

good finds. thanks.

This Lifestraw looks awesome. I haven't bought one yet but based on the reviews sounds like something I want to keep around.

This might be nice to add to my zombie apocalypse kit. Does anyone know if it will filter out the Z-virus? I don't want to end up eating any brains.

what's this?

Some basics for people new to this technology:

1) It does not filter viruses--zombie, or otherwise. You'll need a more expensive filter system. It's a non-issue here in US, but abroad is a different story.

2) It is slow. Drinking water like this takes time.

3) You can buy any number of higher volume, faster filter systems--but you'll pay for it. This is great for adding to a bug out bag/72-hour kit, but drinking directly from a stream with this is awkward. Hikers will be much happier with a higher volume system.

Need to be a sucker to use this.  LOL

It's not practical.  Camel pack is a better choice.

How does the Camel filter? that would be cool if they have that option

^ no it wouldn't be cool. I want light weight and functional. No carrying dead weight around.

I like this method the most for getting clean water. http://survivor-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/solar-st...

I always wondered why the people on Naked and Afraid didn't take something like this to purify water.  Half of them get sick and/or dehydrated the first few days.  

This is good for outside traveling! Must got 1.

So having something like this magically make you hydrated and not afraid?  You would still be dehydrated having this in the middle of the desert.  LOL

Simply put, need to be prepared for your journey.
