                This thing was super fun to use. A friend and I took a big ol' spring break trip to the Grand Canyon, Moab, and Zions National Park in Utah and Arizona. We decided we would pack water just for the car, and use this little baby the rest of the time. It was awesome. We were in the nastiest water places and it was clean as a whistle! Tasted awesome and fresh too! Drinking from the Colorado River was way fun as well. Definitely a good buy.

                  Great thing to have in case of emergency/disaster happening. Hope I don't ever need to use in that situation. Will be purchasing another in 4 years.

                    My question is about this products "shelf life". The video states it has a shelf life of three years. 1. What happens to the product after three years if not used? Can it be used? 2. When does that three year clock start and how do I know how long this product has been on the shelf until it gets to me?

                    Please do get me wrong, I'm VERY interested in this product and will most likely purchase but I would like those questions answered first. Thank you.

                      The video is actually outdated. Shelf life specifications for LifeStraw have been removed, because they last indefinitely if stored at room temperature. The reason is the fact that there are no moving parts or chemicals within the filter. There is nothing to "go bad."

                    How do you know when you have reached the 264 gallon capacity of the life straw and need a new filer?

                      The filter stops working when it has reached capacity (flow will diminish).

                    In the product specs it says that the LifeStraw has a "5 year" shelf! If this is correct if/when you ship out the product what is the shelf life at that time? Have you had the product for 1 year? 2 years? 3 years? How long will the filter be good for, for me? Or my children?

                    I ask this as I have never seen this on any type of filter, and I have been backpacking for many, many years and have gone through many, many filters (well until I got my Sawyer).

                    Thank you for your time and have a great day,

                      LifeStraw tests their product with dirty water in the lab, and the guarantee the product for 1000 liters / 264 gallons. They gauge an average of 5 years to reach this capacity, though water quality is certainly a variable when considering the time frame or gallon capacity.
