This is a quick look at the LifeStraw Family Water Filter. A full review is coming soon, but wanted to give you guys a chance to check them out over at CampingSurvival.Com by clicking here http://goo.gl/RCROiB before the full review came out. This looks like a great filter to have in place at a bug out location or to take with you if you can use a vehicle or have a bit more space since it is light, but bulky.
LifeStraw Family Specifications partially taken from CampingSurvival.Com:

If you are new to this channel, Welcome to the Reality Survival Channel! On this survival channel I teach a full range of Survival Skills. The tips and techniques that I teach here are very useful for people who enjoy camping, hunting, hiking, backpacking and mountaineering. If you enjoy the outdoors and going on an adventure into the woods you will love the survival information you can find on this channel! My goal is to educate folks on real world survival tips and techniques including Wilderness Survival, Urban Survival, Primitive Survival, Bushcraft, & more. I also do Outdoor Gear Reviews on Survival Kits, Survival Gear, Survival Knives, Guns, Bug Out Bag Gear & just about any kind of Every Day Carry (EDC) Gear & disaster preparedness or prepping gear. I learned many of the survival skills I teach here when I was a Survival instructor for the USAF about 15 years ago (class 97-02). But since then I have also been honing my skills and developing and learning new survival skills sets as well! Go ahead & subscribe!
