I took a survival class once that said to remember the rule of 3’s: 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food. Next to breathing, water is incredibly important and if you’re spending any time outside or where you can’t access fresh water, you need a plan, and that’s where LifeSaver products can help.
There are many kinds of filtered water bottles on the market, but LifeSaver’s meets military standards. Unlike with iPhone cases where you wonder how often anyone in the military is drop kicking their phone, you can rest assured the military DEFINITELY worries about soldiers getting dysentery. So meeting the standard for military drinking water is an impressively high bar. LifeSaver sees this as a humanitarian issue and has provided products to Indonesia following recent earthquakes and tsunamis, and a major focus of their work is on the idea that their products can be used to provide safe water in the event of a natural disaster.
Basically, these products aren’t joking around-they will get you the cleanest possible water from just about any source. Their new LifeSaver Liberty even lets you fill other bottles easily, so you can toss one in for your next camping trip and keep everyone’s individual bottles filled with clean water (this is good since no one wants to clean the water only to catch a cold from sharing the same water bottle). Liberty is $99 but can filter out 99.999% of viruses, bacteria, and cysts, plus it can filter up to 2,000 liters per filter.
If you do a lot of camping, or if you live in an area where you’re concerned about natural disasters, the LifeSaver line of products is a worthwhile investment for peace of mind and clean water!
