One of the challenges of long-term outdoor work is to find a clean and safe water source. If you are affected by parasites, bacteria, or toxins in sewage, you are likely to confess yourself in the wild. For this reason, many outdoor sports equipment manufacturers provide portable water purification bottles.And what this article wants to introduce to you is the new product jointly developed by CamelBak and LifeStraw.
It is reported that CamelBak not only provides 20/32 ounces (approximately 0.6 / 0.95 liters) standard bottles, but also introduced a 32 ounce vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottle and a 2 liter (68 ounce) water capsule version.

When the user needsDrinking waterAt the time, the water collected in the bottle will first pass through Lifestraw’s hollow fiber membrane, which is officially claimed to be able to filter 99.99% of bacteria, parasites, and microplastics.
The water then flows through the ion exchange device to filter potentially harmful chemicals such as lead and chlorine, or other components that affect the color and taste of the water.
The purified water will flow out of CamelBak’s iconic Eddy+Straw bottle cap, which shows that it has a unique open-cap splash-proof/close-cap leak-proof design.
The bottle body uses 50% recycled materials and does not contain controversial BPA / BPS / BPF ingredients. As for the stainless steel bottle, the official announced that the heat preservation effect is as long as 30 hours.
However, Crux Reservoir is slightly different, because it uses LifeStraw’s activated carbon filter (instead of ion exchange filter), which can block unwanted components in the small pores between carbon atoms.
