Default Best straw water filter?



Advertise Here

Hey everyone,

I'm going to pick up a straw water filter for EDC and was wondering if anyone had a recommendation?

Here are the options I've found so far:

Aquamira Frontier Emergency Water Filter Straw
McNett Frontier ER Water Filter
Cabellas Frontier Water Filter Straw

Thoughts?

I had a LifeStraw that a friend picked up on a trip across the pond, but my son lost it camping. I bought an AquaSafe Straw just after for $35.

I wish I had looked at the Seychelle Pure Water Straw, Advanced before blowing $35. I believe the Seychelle is a better product, and it's $14.99.

Check out the Seychelle (advanced model).

Sportsman's Warehouse has the Aquamira Frontier for $7.99. I have several of them and they fit most anywhere in a pack or pockets. In all my kits.

This sounds good.

'The Survival Straw is not a filter! It is a highly efficient water purification system that destroys harmful bacteria and viruses that exist in most sources of water. Unlike a typical filter which attempts to trap impurities, the Survival Straw eliminates them.

A single Survival Straw can process over 5,000 gallons (This is a claim by the manufacturer that is not verified) - that's a lifetime of pure water. Compare this to a typical carbon filter which has to be replaced about 30 days after initial use.

Introducing the Most Remarkable Breakthrough in Water Purification

Destroys E.coli, giardia, cryptosporidia

Removes Ethylene Dibromide, EDB, Iron, Mercury, Chlorine, Radon, Pesticides, Herbicides, Arsenic, Cobalt, bad tase and odor

100% Alloy Media No Silver or Carbons

Eliminates Heavy Metals

Eliminates Carcinogens

Meets FDA Standards. EPA Est. 67814-FL-001

Certified Bacteriostatic Device
