LifeStraw Steel

The LifeStraw Steel Personal Water Filter builds upon the ingenuity intrinsic to the original LifeStraw Personal Water Filter with a durable, sleek steel exterior and 2-stage water filtration process.

Now, in addition to the hollow fiber membrane (filtering out virtually all bacteria and protozoa), the LifeStraw Steel has the additional benefit of an activated carbon capsule which reduces chemicals such as chlorine while reducing organic compounds (including pesticides and herbicides), odor and bad taste.
