LifeStraw Launches Pocket-Sized Water Filter

LifeStraw, a public health B Corp on a mission to provide equitable access to safe drinking water, is bringing a new level of simplicity and convenience to water filtration.

The LifeStraw Peak Series Solo Water Filter is ultra-lightweight at only 1.7 ounces, compact at just 5.1 inches, and portable.

It removes bacteria, parasites, microplastics, silt, sand, and cloudiness from drinking water.

Tara Lundy, LifeStraw’s chief brand officer, said this is a product their entire team and they are set out to make the lightest filter on the market while maintaining a strong flow rate and performance.

“I’ve already tested this product on several hiking and camping trips with my family and my kids love the visual of squeezing dirty water through the filter into a clean container. At less than two ounces, no backpack, pocket, emergency bag, or glove compartment should be without one,” she said.

The filter can be simply screwed onto the majority of ordinary plastic water bottles thanks to its standard 28mm threading.

A one-liter container may be filled in 20 seconds or less because of the one-handed flip cap design’s quick flow rate of three liters per minute.

Priced at an MSRP of $29.9, the Peak Series Solo Water Filter is the ideal travel companion for emergencies, travel, glove compartments, and keychains.
