    I've always wanted one of these and $5 off is very tempting.

    I'd buy one but the African sponsorship part killed the deal. I want all the proceeds to go into the USA economy.

    ^ It's global economy, so you can never know where the proceeds go for sure. Even when you buy only locally grown/made products, you still pay somebody oversees. So get real, do your research before buying and put your money where you believe it's better for the US economy. My point is it's almost never as simple as the "made in" tag. This one is made in Korea, by the way.
    I'm in for one as its price/value/weight makes it a good choice for various applications.

    Of course it's 4.6 out of 5 stars. Dead people seldom get a chance to write a negative review.

    It usually is as simple as the more you buy made in the US, the more money stays. Individual exceptions aside there are still valid averages and generalizations to be made.

    Besides not removing the majority of the chemicals in the water such as arsenic, iron and others, these little portable water filters will not remove viruses as well. So, you are better off boiling the water to ensure that everything that is alive in the water will be killed off before ingesting.
