New Water Filter Straw – Beats Them All!
Water Filter Straws are the new ‘must have’ in outdoor gear. Any serious adventurer will tell you being able to drink safe water from a stream, lake or any surface water you come across when trekking around the great outdoors is just an awesome deal. A portable water filter means not having to worry about packing extra lbs of water with you – which really lightens up your load. Filter straws are perfect for extreme camping, hiking, biking, serious back packing or in case of emergency.
XStream™ Water Filter Straw
The NEW Sagan™ XStream™ Water Filter Straw – we truly believe it’s the best water filter straw on the market. Sagan™ Industries has once again nailed it with their intuitive design and amazing water filtration effectiveness.
The XStream™ Filter Straw has been rigorously tested and certified by independent water laboratories to remove bacteria, virus, giardia and cryptosporidium for up to 300 gallons. That’s right – virus! The XStream™ has amazing results and is so easy to use. It’s been tested to its “End of Life”. The XStream™ Straw Filter comes in a 2 foot length with a 2 foot extension, total 4ft (48″) long, so you don’t need to be on your belly anymore to drink safe water.
The XStream™ is super light, easy to carry, pack and fun to use. My three year old grandson used it last week, as did my daughter in law and son. They all agreed it was a pretty cool device!
Best Water Filter Straw – by Far
Are there other options out there? There are and we’ve noted some big reasons we find the XStream™ to be the superior water filter.
LifeStraw® has been around for a while. The original LifeStraw® only removes bacteria and crytosporidium. That’s it. And what you see is what you’re going to taste… and smell. It will not improve the taste or smell of the muddy stream water you’re about to slurp up while laying in the mud on your belly with your face 4″ from the water. Sorry, LifeStraw®, but that $20 bucks may be better spent elsewhere.
LifeStraw® has come up with a newer version called the LifeStraw® Steel. About 3x the cost and this version is definitely an improvement. However, while it does remove bacteria, giardia and cryptosporidium, it does not remove virus and your face will still be 4″ from the water. The fact that XStream™ removes virus is huge! We are impressed!
XStream-ly Effective Water Filtration
Safe water is the key to life – there is really nothing more important. If you’re an outdoor adventurer or a conscientious prepper, start with safe water. Once you have a bullet proof water filter you can survive. Then build your survival or camping gear arsenal from around that!
