Get the Gear! On-the-Go Water Purifier

Deal of the Day on SteriPEN Traveler

If there's one thing that can put the brakes on an overseas adventure, it's GI issues brought on by drinking dirty water (Montezuma's Revenge, anyone?). And yet, according CDC figures, it still happens to up to 50% of international travelers every year. That's why, no matter how tight space is, it's always smart to haul along a water purifier. And with tiny versions like SteriPEN's 3.6-ounce Traveler Mini on the market, packing space isn't even an issue.

We've been singing the praises of SteriPEN for some time now, and this somewhat older model deserves no different. This small, battery-powered purifier uses shortwave germicidal UV light to disrupt microbial DNA, disinfecting a half-liter (~16 ounces) of water in just 48 seconds. It kills more than 99.9% of the bacteria, viruses and protozoa that cause water-borne illness. It's light, brainless to use and doesn't require laborious pumping.

And what's better, it's currently marked down (TODAY ONLY!) from $69.95 to $25.

As a bonus, use coupon code SWL12 once it's in your cart, and you'll get $2.95 flat rate shipping (a $3 discount).

Sale Price: $25 (64% off)
