I am traveling out the country and want to use a LifeStraw product.... Which one should I choose?
LifeStraw believes in backing all claims recommendations with scientific evidence and rigorous testing. However, since it is impossible to test or maintain accurate water sources in every location globally, we do not provide country or region-specific recommendations.
Viruses are not a concern in backcountry locations or water sources in most developed countries. LifeStraw filtration products (LifeStraw Steel, LifeStraw Universal, LifeStraw Go, LifeStraw Flex, LifeStraw Flex w/ Gravity Bag, LifeStraw Play, and LifeStraw Home) remove 99.999999% of bacteria and 99.999% of parasites; however, these products do not remove viruses.
If you are seeking virus removal, you can either use a LifeStraw purifier (LifeStraw Mission, LifeStraw Family, or LifeStraw Community) or combine a LifeStraw filter with purification tablets.
