Bit of a no brainer. Doesn't take up any space.
Haven't had to use but glad to have it

A must have! Light weight and doesn't take up much space in your pack. I always have mine with me as I have been stuck before, desperate for water and had to drink from a muddy puddle!

Hi, how do you know once the straw is no longer filtering the water effectively, considering its not easy to measure how much you are drinking when straw is placed in river etc?
Dee G on Mar 18, 2020

The LifeStraw Activated Carbon and Ion Exchange filter lasts approximately 40 gallons (150 liters). We estimate that it should be replaced every 2 months. This assumes that a household uses approximately 2.5 liters per day or refills the 7-cup filter housing approximately 5 times per day. If you are using the product less, you can adjust your estimate of length of time needed before you must replace the activated carbon and ion exchange filter. Another way to tell if the filter has reached its lifetime capacity is if you can detect that the taste of your water has returned to the original tap taste. This may be more apparent for some people than others. Heavy metals and chemicals rely on prolonged exposure to cause sickness so if your activated carbon and ion exchange filter has a short lapse in timespan, you should not be at immediate risk. The membrane microfilter lasts 264 gallons (1,000 liters). We estimate that it should be replaced once per year. This filter ends its lifetime when flow rate becomes drastically reduced or completely blocked out of the filter. It will never allow bacteria, parasites or microplastics to filter through it. This is critical as these contaminants can cause immediate sickness unlike most chemicals and heavy metals found in water.

Does the filter have an expiry date i.e. say I bought it today but didn't use it at all would it be ineffective 5 years or less/more?

Lifestraw products have no shelf life.
The Lifestraw filters 1,000 gallons (4,000 liters), enough drinking water for an individual for over 5 years.
It is then possible to buy a replacement filter to extend the life of your drink bottle.
