Most of the ones on YouTube are for HHO enthusiasts. But from what I've read, they're not very safe for HHO... go figure. I'm sure Tony...

That looks promising. Sawyer has an inline filter already and so does Aquamira . According to the LifeStraw site, the dry weight of the personal LifeStraw is about 4.9 ounces while the Aquamira filter is 2 ounces dry. Although the Aquamira removes parasites like Cryptosporidium and Giardia, it doesn...

Be careful with that twine folks! If you don't watch it you'll eventually end up building a screened-in gazebo for it. :lol:
