iStraw Emergency Water Filter The iStraw Emergency Water Filter just might save your butt on your next backpacking trip… literally. The iStraw is a polycarbonate straw fitted with special micro-filtration technology on a membrane that can clean your water and protect you against water borne bacteria and protozoa present in drinking water and ice in many countries.

With that said, it’s still a compact and perfect utility to carry on worldwide travels to places like Mexico or China.
