Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Can't beat the value I'm really really impressed with this. For $20, it filters more (and to a finer level) than the other filters in my price range. It does take a few seconds to suck the water through, yes, but that's because the pores are so fine. Remember to blow out the excess water before putting it back in your pocket or it'll leak into your pocket. I drank out of a dirty mud puddle, and the water came through nice and clean. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnR82 Great value After shopping around I decided to give this a try - it filters a ton of water for the price, and has a pretty good track record of use around the world. First time you use it, it takes a bit to get the water flowing, but after that it's quite easy. I take it with me when I'm hunting and it's pretty convenient being able to drink out of a stream or a pond without hauling bottles of water with me. September 4, 2012

A:No. It can do up to the 286 galons. I been using mone for over a year now and it works fine.
A:Yes, it expires 5 years after it's been made. And there's a made-on date on the LifeStraw. Look for a small sticker w/that info on it. But really there's no reason for it to expire.
