The best purchase I have made. Saved mine and 3 other lives in tandem with the nesting cook set purchased. Stuck in a canyon without fresh water, we were left with boiling stagnant puddle water to make the climb out. From filling pot to boil, cooling pot down and filling camel-back. 15 minutes per liter, about 5 minutes to boil at about 4500' alt. Boiled about 4 liters per person (16) with no fail. The guys gave me hell before the trip, for how small it is, they are no longer skeptics.

I will start by saying that these are some of the cheapest (as far as price goes) pocket/rocket stoves that you can find on the internet... but I ordered my first one about 3 years or so ago, then turned around and ordered 4 more stoves to give to some of my youth guys from church who decided to hike on the Appalachian Trail with our church guys a few weeks ago.

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter - on sale save 20%

We all know without clean water you are never more than a few days from death. So it goes without saying that you need this in your survival gear, and at this cheap price you will be amazed how simple, easy and reliable it is.

How it works 
LifeStraw filters to 0.2 microns through the use of hollow-fiber membranes, which are small tubes with even smaller pores. These pores allow water to pass, but prevent contaminants larger than 0.2 microns from flowing through. As you get closer to 264 gallons (1,000 liters), the pores will eventually become clogged with debris and the flow will stop.

LifeStraw is the water filter chosen by leading NGOs for humanitarian relief worldwide since launch in 2005. LifeStraws have been sent to Africa, Pakistan, Haiti, and South America for disaster aid, and a portion of domestic sales support this donation program.

How to use LifeStraw Water Filter
One item you can add to this.....paper coffee filters (cone type) are inexpensive. Place one over the bottom of the water filter with a wide rubber band and it will protect the filter with a lot less cleaning. The Water Filter will last 2X as long and cleaner water to drink!

5 point summary
  • Award-winning LifeStraw has been used by millions around the globe since 2005
  • Removes minimum 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction) and surpasses EPA standards for water filters
  • Removes minimum 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites (>LOG 3 reduction) and filters to an amazing 0.2 microns
  • Filters up to 1000 liters of contaminated water WITHOUT iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals
  • Comes in a sealed bag, perfect for storing for emergencies
