For all outdoor enthusiasts this is a great buy! The Steri Straw also known as the Life Straw is a water filter system that you can hang around your neck and it will filter water from the river, creek, lake, puddle even.

The Steri Straw runs about $20 and for the price it's worth it. It allows close to 300 gallons of water to be filtered, which is quite a bit.

If you hike, or fish this little device could save your life. I for one am getting more gear that is useful and handy in case of an emergency.

There are some essentials for the outdoors as far as backpacking even a short ways. Somehow to get water, food in some form and a medical kit.
