    *pour one out for the bendy straws*

    Just look at that bacteria infested, yucky water next to that "WOW WHO IS SHE?!" water!

    amazon.com

    ~How it works~: The tube is a hollow fiber membrane that filters out 99.9% of bacteria, protozoan parasites, and microplastics. It can filter up to a minimum of 1,000 gallons of water. That's about four years of clean drinking water.

    amazon.com

    ~How to use:~ Simply open the caps on either side of the LifeStraw. Submerge the base of the straw into the water and suck in a few times to get the filter going. Then drink freely! When you're done, breathe into the straw to puff out any remaining water, close up those caps, and be on your way.

    Let's check some of these super promising reviews out:

    "I frequently hike and camp in the backcountry all over the United States. Carrying the amount of water that I need to survive during these trips is just not feasible. I recently took a LifeStraw out for a test on a backcountry hike in the Rocky Mountains. I was drinking fresh snow melt and also from lakes that are home to beavers and other wildlife. There was no added taste to the water and I didn't get sick during or after the trip." —Charlie

    "This thing is no joke! I took it backpacking on Maine's Bigelow range. When I ran out of the water I brought, I was A-ok with this. On top of one of the lower peaks, I drank from the most disgusting looking crevice filled with brown scum (below). I thought, this is going to be safe, but taste horrid. WRONG. TASTED LIKE THE FRESHEST SPRING WATER." —Amazon Customer

    amazon.com

    "I've used these both in Iraq & Afghanistan. Works as advertised. Extremely reliable and genuinely safe to use filtration system. We now use it as a SOP* to have one in everyone's ruck when we deploy! Semper Fi. —American Patriot
