Beat Beaver Fever with LifeStraw Go Stainless Steel Water Bottle

New LifeStraw Go Stainless Steel line available in September 2020

One of the drawbacks of overland travel is not having enough water to sustain long periods away from civilization. The spectre of water-borne illness is very real, especially in the mountains where giardia (also known as beaver fever) and cryptosporidia have a high-likelihood of occurring in natural streams, rivers, and lakes. I know, I know, you can boil your water and you’re good to go, right? But what if you’re on a hike or a trail run and you need to stay hydrated? You can’t just casually pull off the trail and turn on your JetBoil.

The LifeStraw Go Stainless Steel bottle is a double wall, vacuum insulated, stainless steel water bottle that contains an advanced filter that protects against bacteria, parasites, microplastics, chlorine, organic chemical matter, sand, dirt, and cloudiness to improve water taste. 

The leak-proof bottle is ideal for camping, hiking, overland travel, outdoor activities and everyday use. Simply fill with water from a lake, river or tap and filter on the go. No more need for single use plastic bottled water. LifeStraw filters are rigorously tested to meet protocols established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and NSF International/ANSI.

The Lifestraw Go Stainless Steel was just announced at Outdoor Retailer Summer so we don’t have pricing just yet – but the bottle will go on sale in September 2020. Learn more details below:
