Just curious, would you say this works any better or worse, same? than the Sawyer Mini?

With all due respect, I've been coming into many discussions on the shortcomings of this product. Now don't get me wrong, any water purification method is better than none. But Lifestraw is a brand I've consistently seen come up in other survival and self reliance websites and get the same iffy reviews.

Because of the concern, I thought I'd give a heads up. Better safe than sorry.

This is one of the better discussions I've seen about the issue:

Given the choice I'd go with the Sawyer mini.  It will attach to many/most bottles so you can take water with you.  Filters more water and comes with a back flush syringe to keep it clean.

The Lifestraw is a portable on-the-fly-last-ditch piece of equipment that will at least allow you to get a drink. 

It did save that woman's like in Ca.  that was lost for around a week (injured and separated from her hiking party).  So it works, but better products serve better overall.
Governmental dependance makes for poor self reliance.

We have the Sawyer inside our GHBs and the Lifestraw Go water bottle on the outside. In my EDC I have the Survivor filter.
