The filter saves users from having to purchase disposable, plastic water bottles and allows for the ability to drink filtered water straight from a stream. The filter is great for refilling reusable water bottles or water packs and its hollow fiber technology kills harmful chemicals, bacteria, and germs.
5. Luci Outdoor 2.0
The Luci Outdoor 2.0 is a solar powered, waterproof, inflatable lantern perfect for camping, sailing, hiking in the dark, or for emergencies.
