My Review ( P.O.V ) : If you've checked the 'travel' section on my blog, you'll see, I travel a lot; and more often than not, to offbeat places more than the common tourist places. Yes, I love visiting places that are not visited that much, yet, are intriguing. Hence, my travels have always taken me to some really remarkable places, which are yet to be discovered or are less thronged with the maddening crowd. Much as I love these experiences, I must say, sometimes these can be bit uncomfortable too; as in, they can be totally out of my comfort zone. As they are not common destinations, basic facilities too may be lacking at times. Most things can be taken care of somehow, but when it comes to 'water', things can get quite tricky. Because, it directly relates to our health; and last thing we want is, to fall sick in some foreign location due to water problem. I was in the Rajasthan countryside just recently, and I had a horrible time finding water that tasted okay. Even the bottled water was yuck. Its a miracle that I didn't fall sick. There can be places far worse, hence, we can't always depend on the water available. But when I came across the Lifestraw Go personal water-filter sipper, I saw a ray of hope. I was sent a piece for review, and since then, we've become buddies.
Of body material - Tritan, cap type -Flip Open, lid type - Screw-top and ideal for both Men & Women, this sipper makes a perfect travel companion. I must admit here, I haven't tried it on very dirty water yet, but I did try on unboiled/unfiltered water ( which I often do to normal tap water ). And very soon, I'm going outstation again, so will take it along. The brand guarantees safe water, from any source, with its usage. It has been awarded as well, so only if they got good results, will they be awarded, right? Since, it does the work of a filter, unlike normal straws, this one requires a little effort while sipping the water. So, if you are very thirsty and want to gulp down a bottle of water at-one-go, you may not be able to; you'll just have to do it slowly. For health sake, I'm okay with that. This product can be great for kids too, as I remember, as a kid I used to fill water from anywhere. And naturally, I fell sick every other day. You don't want that to happen to your kid, do you? So, parents can give the Lifestraw Go to their kids to carry, instead of the regular water-bottle. I'll update the review after more usage of the product. Keep tuned...
