Before your next ATV or UTV ride, you may want to consider packing a LifeStraw in your bag or glove box. The $20 item could end up being a life saver.

While it’s always a good idea to bring water along with you when you go out for a ride, it’s not always top of mind. While you can normally just turn around and go home if you need a drink, what if something goes wrong?

ATVs and UTVs can break down from time to time and if you are a long way from home and have a limited amount of fresh water on hand, a LifeStraw can help you stay hydrated.

Water from a river or stream may look ready to drink, but you should really purify it so you know it’s safe to consume. This is where a LifeStraw can come in handy. Just put the mesh bottom in the water and suck the water into the tube. A hollow fiber membrane inside the tube is designed to trap pathogens. After this filtering process, the water is safe for you to drink, as it removes 99.99% of bacteria and protozoa.

Priced at $20, each LifeStraw has a lifespan of 1,000 liters (or 264 gallons), so it will last you a long time to come.

You can buy your own LifeStraw here.
