Don’t let an illness (like one of these) spoil your next backpacking, vacation or important business trip. The iStraw Emergency Water Filter is a personal water filtration drinking straw. This means you don’t have to worry about using local tap water or ice cubes and also means that you are playing your part in helping the environment by not using plastic bottles of water that release harmful emissions into the atmosphere. iStraw is a polycarbonate straw fitted with a special membrane, which uses micro-filtration technology to clean your water rather than expensive and bad tasting water cleaning tablets. It is suitable for personal use to help protect you, your family and friends against water borne bacteria and protozoa that are present in the drinking water and ice of many countries. In this day of extensive personal and business travel it is no wonder that many travellers often incur health problems during their holiday or business trip.

The iStraw is compact, lightweight and simple to use, an essential companion for all travelers. Unlike water purification tablets, it leaves no funky aftertaste. It reduces up to 99.99999% of all waterborne bacteria, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. When used properly, the iStraw is capable of filtering up to 500 litres of water.
