The LifeStraw Mission is a gravity-powered water purifier employing an award-winning technology that requires no chemicals, batteries or moving parts. The LifeStraw Mission removes 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of protozoa, and 99.999% of viruses. The larger capacity of the Mission water purifier is ideal for providing clean water to multiple people, and is designed for camping, hunting, and other group or family activites, as well as disaster and emergency survival prep kits. The reservoir can be filled from nearby lakes, ponds, rivers, or streams and suspended from a tree or other sturdy support. Gravity moves water down the hose to the filter’s advanced ultrafiltration membrane. Clean water exits through 0.02 micron pores in the walls of the hollow fibers, but bacteria, viruses, protozoa and other contaminants are trapped inside and are flushed out by backwashing. Compact, BPA-free roll bag reservoir features a wide mouth for easy filling with a convenient shoulder carrying strap for transport back to base camp or other group location. Includes drawstring stuff-sack for easy storage and portability. Includes four extra pre-filter screens for easy on-site maintenance.

Expedition quality filter! Successfully kept three 5 gallon water coolers full for 23 people for 5 days. Pre-filter was great at keeping sand out of the filter, but some smaller particles got past the pre filter.Some tips:* Rinse the bag a couple of times when filling and try to get the pre-filter as clean as possible* When starting drain all the air from the line with the red tap to ensure the highest flow.* When back flushing with the red bulb, hold the bulb depressed (you’ll see the dirty water in the line), then open the red tap and drain the dirty water. Do this a couple of time until the back flush in the line is clear.
So simple to use Used this on a backpacking trip to Red River Gorge with my 3 sons. It worked great and so easy to use. Just set it up and let it do it’s thing. Packed in a collapsible 5 gallon container and just let this fill it up with clean drinkable water. We started out with muddy river water and after filtering with this it was like drinking bottled water. We had 5 gallons of clean water at all times with no pumping or boiling.
