Absolutely love that you work with hiking and camping stuff… Love it… I’m currently working on a campaign traveling on a kayak for 360 plus miles on the Wisconsin River. All in one Fell Swoop… Would love to hear any input or have you as a follower. I will be talking about some products and like what you’re doing. Keep it up

B L says:

It doesn’t remove viruses! Like the flesh eating virus.

Freddy Fazbear says:

Yes I always thought about drinking P with it and see if it works thanks now I don’t have to

Rob Bevington says:

lol

Spaz Hole says:

Why does she look like the pornstar Anya Olsen

Oh Danny Boi says:

i dont think it filters chlorine. Or it does not filter stuff that bonds on the molecular level to water.

Alex Karlov says:

Crazy girls. I sure will drink through that straw, if I will totally die from thirst, no other way I would do it. If I have time and ability to boil the water, I would do that first in any case. Drinking from clean stream with that straw would be probably the safest test. Canal or pond, crazy. And yes, I read in the comments to that product that people got sick drinking from that straw already.

Kakashi Hatake says:

They won’t be so shy at eve

Jibril Builder says:

You the real MVP thank you!

Gringo says:

Les Stroud used this in a horrible water puddle chock full of birdsh*t and he was fine. I trust Les a lot more than a clown like Bear. Ethical company as well.

BB&MB EZALB says:

SERIOUSLY THOSE BRIT GIRL HAVE SOME GUTS !! THUMBS UP FOR THE COURAGE
DEFINITELY PROUESSE !

AzZaMaTr0n says:

That looks really good in your hands

Meels ! says:

I mean I still don’t know whether I trust it.. If some one could actually prove that there is no bacteria there rather than just drinking the water then maybe I would trust it..

ULTRA NOOB says:

its just so non multi functional. I prefer a sawywer which does the same but can hook up to bottles/blatters etc.

cindybin2001 says:

AARGGHHH I can’t believe she used the sh-word! Here I was watching your video with interest, and then you ruined it all by blurting out the sh-word! How crude, offensive and unladylike! And what gets me is that I have ranted for 15 years online about why we shouldn’t use profanity! And here I am always scolding the GUYS for using bad language because ladies are on these boards, and so it really drives me nuts when a WOMAN swears!

JIYEON WOO says:

so surprise! Can I use this video for educational TV program? Thank you for useful and interesting video

Brian Barber says:

How would you fill water bottles using a LifeStraw?

The New Paradigm says:

You could have just looked it up before you tried it.

Thanos says:

What about viruses?

Neonwolf2 says:

This product was stolen from a couple of teens at a summer clol

redstone craft guy says:

Important note: this thing filter bacterias and viruses not chemical.

Aliya Sabandal says:

at 2.09 you can see a crocodile lurking behind them in the waters

Milo says:

we dont care about the taste we care about : is the liquid safe to drink.

Eric Talkington says:

Should be titled, “Two Girls and a Cup.”

Prototype says:

Can i drink water that has ebola in it?

James Ritchie says:

The Life Straw is a waste of money. The Sawyer can be used the same way, removes things half the size of anything the Life Straw can filter out, and will filter one hundred times as much water before it needs replaced.

King Pluto says:

…+3 Rads

Pablo Antonio says:

The important thing here is whether what you’re drinking will do you any harm. Not whether you like the taste or not.

truthseekr420 j says:

This is dumb af you don’t even test the water your taste means absolutely nothing smh

Brandon N says:

You 100% dont spit water back through it to clean it and with water that clear to begin qith you do not even need to back wash it.

ugly rat fox says:

wrong you can do all water
