Rated 4 out of 5 by Rio Gal from Life Straw water filter Used the Life Straw water filter system in a high mountain wilderness camp in Colorado. We get our water from a lake and the taste was so much better than when we just boiled the water. I did have to back flush the filter about every other bag to be able to get a decent drip -- the lake water looks clear, but there is also a bit of a green algae that seemed to plug the filter really fast. Our other problem related to the warning against freezing. Had to put the filter in a baggie and sleep with it at night to make sure it didn't freeze.
