Lifestraw Personal Water Filter
As much can be expected when buying the steel version of the Lifestraw Personal Water Filter and about the straw in general, but these are still minor drawbacks worth pointing out:Promised Review By Jan Childress
1. The tip of the straw tastes like steel when you drink from it (because it is steel). This isn’t a problem if you don’t rest your tongue on the steel tip.
2. You have to prime the straw by sucking pretty hard for several seconds.
3. Once it’s primed you still have to suck pretty hard to actually drink from the straw. Not unreasonably so, but enough to be fairly inconvenient; you won’t quench your thirst in one round of drinking. You can’t take a very long break between drinks before having to prime it again. If you’re tired and thirsty, you may have to prime the straw more than once before you’ve had enough to drink.
