Just saw this deal in a Newegg Flash email. Not the lowest price ever on the filter, but pretty close. These little things get great reviews. Great for boil orders or the zombie apocalypse.

Just something to know. This product will not remove synthetic chemical contaminants (VOCs) from your water. If you have a water supply that is downstream from a large polluting factory, for example, there can still be unhealthy levels of certain chemicals in the water even after going through the Lifestraw. The Lifestraw will remove larger contaminants like heavy metals, bacteria, and viruses, but cannot remove VOCs due to their small size. So if you are out in the mountains and want to drink out of a river, go for it, but if you are in a large city and want to drink out of the river there, maybe think twice about the industrial pollutants in the area.
I thought VOC stood for volatile organic compound, not 'synthetic chemical contaminant'.

Sawyer makes a better product, lasts much longer, but if it's just for emergencies this one will do great.

This one [sawyer.com]? How is it better than the LifeStraw Go?

Quote from LifeStraw :
The LifeStraw Go is designed for hikers, campers, travellers and other outdoor enthusiasts. It will filter out 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.9% of waterborne protozoa. Chemicals, salt water, heavy metals and viruses will not be removed.If you are looking for a high capacity filter to remove viruses, the LifeStraw Mission and LifeStraw Family 1.0 remove 99.999% of viruses.
Quote from Sawyer :
Taste
The Sawyer filter removes taste that comes from bacteria, dirt, and green matter.

Chemicals
The Sawyer filter does NOT remove iron, sulfur, other chemicals, or simple compounds. Taste can be masked by using flavor additives like Gatorade or crystal light (filter needs to be cleaned immediately after using them).

Heavy Metals
The Sawyer filters are not made with charcoal. While other portable filters have charcoal, they lack in amount of media and adequate dwell time. Therefore, they only remove small amounts of heavy metals, pesticides, etc. (when used in real life applications). Try using better sources of water, if possible.
This product is discounted because there is a new LifeStraw Go with a 2-stage filter.

Quote from LifeStraw :
LifeStraw Go 2-stage filtration incorporates a carbon capsule in addition to the existing award-winning technology into a refillable water bottle so you can access safe drinking water with you on the go. The activated carbon capsule reduces chlorine, bad taste and odor for up to 26 gallons, or 100 liters, the equivalent of 3 months of continuous use.

He is referring to this one. It is way better. At least I am assuming he is referring to this one. In my opinion way better and cheaper currently, normally around $25.

Just an FYI: Sawyer has come under criticism for some it's unsubstantiated claims relating to filtering capacity and capability. I still think it's probably a better product than the Gen 1 Lifestraw, but perhaps not as much better as the popular wisdom would have it.

Sawyer is basically the go to product for thru-hiking. It is a reliable lightweight product and definitely the one I see most recommended.

Be it Lifestraw or Sawyer, they filter out the same level of stuff. They both don't remove chemicals or stuff dissolved in the water. They both filter out bacteria level stuff.

The usability is where it mainly differs:
Lifestraw:
Get down on your stomach and stick the end of the straw in the water source and suck.

Sawyer:
Fill water into a pouch. Attach mini to the end. Squeeze bottle to filter water into a clean container.

For Lifestraw go, it at least solves the problem of getting down on your stomach.

When you can't suck water though the filter anymore, get a new one.
