    REI Members get back an estimated $ 9.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • Hollow-fiber filter membrane offers a flow rate of 9 - 12 liters per hr.; simply fill the blue bucket with water and hold it or hang it above a container you want to fill
    • Water passes through the 3 ft. long blue PVC hose and gravity creates sufficient pressure on the membrane cartridge to reach the high flow rate
    • 0.2-micron filter physically removes 99.9999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli; removes 99.9% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium
    • Also removes 99.99% of viruses, such as Hepatitis A
    • Hollow-fiber filter is rated to purify up to 18,000 liters of water over its lifetime; that's enough to supply a family of five with clean drinking water for up to 3 yrs.
    • Requires no electrical power, batteries or replacement parts
    • Easy-to-clean 80-micron prefilter inside the blue water bucket removes larger particles before they reach the filter
    • LifeStraw Family Gravity Purifier has a backwashing bulb on the side that makes cleaning the hollow-fiber membrane simple
    • For every LifeStraw product sold, one student in Kenya receives clean water for a year thanks to the donation efforts of the North American distributor, Eartheasy
    • Eartheasy's goal is to provide clean water to 500 schools in Kenya in 2014 through the donation of large community filters

    LifeStraw Family Gravity Purifier is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from unbelievable function for the price I just toss it in the canoe and when we camp, pour in some lake water to the top reservoir. The clean water coming out the bottle goes into a cooking pot and we decant from there into our water bottles. The flow rate is fast enough for me. I'm not sure how much of an issue this is, but it's nice that it removes everything including viruses. It's hard to beat the gallons filtered, to the fine level of 0.02 microns, and the price. So, yeah, I'm happy.
