Late last year I gave you guys a little insight into my personal EDC kit, and inside it there was one very important piece of gear that my friends had been asking about.
The Aquamira Emergency Water Straw
I love this filter for quite a few reasons:
-It's very small
– The Straw portion is extremely Flexible.
This allows it to fit just about anywhere (I keep mine inside a zip-lock bag, folded and stuffed inside of a stainless steel water bottle).
-Filters up to 20 gallons of water ( 50 for the “pro” model)
-And it has fairly inexpensive replacement filters.
I recently received an email from the guys over at beprepared.com.
They are having a great sale on these water filters and I wanted to share it with you!
They normally run around $14.00 or more, but these guys are offering it for only $9.99
I don't know how long this sale is going to last but at this price, everyone should get their hands on at least one of these. ( I keep several of them in multiple places.)
Are they the BEST water filters, no not necessarily.
But they are a great filter to carry in a day pack, an EDC, or just as a backup to your more expensive filters.
One caveat to beprepared.com They have flat rate shipping. This is great for larger purchases but if you only buy one of the straws you will be paying 6.00 for shipping.
My advice would be to look around, they have a ton of items that range in price from inexpensive to… WOW, that's a lot of dough!
But again with camping season coming up now is a great time to grab a few of these filters before they go back up in price.
Do you have any other suggestions that we should know about?
Let me know.
