LifeStraw Steel


  • Award-winning LifeStraw® filter technology, evolved with 2-stage filtration and a sleek, durable steel body. LifeStraw® Steel is ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping and travel. The 2-stage filtration process removes bacteria and protozoa and reduces organic chemical matter and chlorine.
  • The LifeStraw® Steel personal water filter builds upon the ingenuity intrinsic to the original LifeStraw® personal water filter with a durable, sleek steel exterior and 2-stage water filtration process.
  • Now, in addition to the hollow fiber membrane (filtering out virtually all bacteria and protozoa), the LifeStraw® Steel water filter has the additional benefit of an activated carbon capsule which reduces chemicals such as chlorine while reducing organic compounds (including pesticides and herbicides), odor and bad taste.
