If you are doing research before joining the more than 80,000 customers that have rented our camping and travel gear, or have already received your camping gear rental package from us, here's the page to learn a lot more about the setup and operation of a specific camping or travel gear item before you head out on your big adventure.  This can be used instead of our rental water filters.

The information below provides more details on how to use the lifestraw, but we encourage you to give us a call or find more resources online if more details are needed. For more information on this item including rates, check out the main product page at LifeStraw Water Filter - easy, inexpensive and lightweight. There are more how-to pages on nearly all of our most popular rental items; find most at our video and user guide to rentals main page .


This is a purchase item - makes a great add-on to any outdoor gear rental order when you may not have potable water readily available.

You use the filter literally as a straw - either drawing from a water bottle like this Nalgene 1 liter we rent, or you can simply draw straight from a raw water resource - creek, lake, or even mud puddles!
