Essential to campers and hikers, a dependable water filter should really accompany any trip to someplace where potable water might be an issue. The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter — recommended by The New York Times‘ Frugal Traveler, Lucas Peterson — filters up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water without chemicals like chlorine or iodine. It also functions without batteries or moving parts. Today, you can score one on Amazon for just $12 — that’s 29 percent off the normal retail price of $17.
