‘Fear No Water’ is their tagline. LifeStraw is one of the coolest new kids on the block for making contaminated water safe to drink. They have a whole range of drinking vessels, but our favourite is the LifeStraw steel which can sit neatly in a pocket, be carried everywhere and has the facility for you to drink out of any pond, lake, river or stream. Pretty cool and a perfect stocking filler.
