*I received the product mentioned free of charge for the purposes of this review. The opinions are mine alone. I will NEVER recommend something I don’t truly believe in.
Most of you know that I am into emergency preparedness. I don’t go as far as to worry about living in tent cities or storing items I don’t use for barter, but I do like to have items around to keep my family safe if something were to happen. We have a food storage, and I keep several first-aid kits throughout my home and in my cars. I also keep a 72-hour kit for each of my family members.
A few months ago, I read about water filter straws. The idea intrigued me, and I wanted to learn more. They are pretty cool, it turns out! After hearing about the woman who survived for 9 days in the wilderness in the Sierra National Forest, I’m betting that there are others who are curious about these water filters as well. What an amazing story that is! I’m so glad it had a happy ending.
I actually received an Acquapura water filter straw about a month ago so that I could review it. Let me tell you a little about how these things work:
- Triple Layer Filtration System – makes water 100% safe to drink; Softens Water and Eliminates Water Odor
Features a Unique Cap with an Innovative Dust-Free Design; Protecting You from the Secondary Pollution of the Outlet Mouthpiece.
Certified By the WQA and the TUV-SUD; the Most Respected Ranking Organizations for These Types of Products.
Filters 99.999% of Waterborne Bacteria Greater Than .01 Microns
Exclusive Antibacterial GAC “Damping System” with UF Membrane Ensures that Raw Water is Completely Filtrated.
- • Compact and Light-Weight at just 2.12 Oz (60 Grams)
These things are genius! I wish I’d learned about them before, but I am certainly grateful that I have not been in a position in which I needed one for survival. I have already purchased more so that I can add one to each of our 72-hour kits. I’m thinking they are a must have for any wilderness camping and hiking too. You just never know, and they don’t take up any space or weigh a thing…so why not?
This is just another item that I think is a must have in our emergency kits. When disaster hits, water can quickly become a vital resource, but not if you can’t filter it. Buy yourself some peace of mind and look into these; I really recommend it. You can click HERE to purchase this specific brand (NOT an affiliate link; I won’t get a penny if you purchase), or search for other brands online. There are many options, and I really feel that they are worth every penny!
