I don't think they would filter out toxic materials you would probably still need a fresh water source. Only for bacteria etc. But you can always resort to drinking out of the tank since that's usually not contaminated.

How dependable are these things? I think I would still feel a psychological barrier from drinking water straight from a dirty lake like the example images.

Edit> This thing looks interesting so I looked into it a bit. Just keep in mind that it won't filter out viruses or other harmful stuff:
Chemicals, salt water, heavy metals and viruses will not be removed.

Lifestraws seem to go on sale on Amazon for every 'special' event so there's no real rush in getting one.

Please be aware that Lifestraws are only good for 1,000 L and filters down to 0.2 micron which seem to be pretty good until you consider something like a Sawyer Mini which does cost a little over 2x as much BUT is good for over 100,000 L, filters down to 0.1 microns, and allows you to connect a bag, bottle, or use it with as an inline filter so you don't have to constantly bend over and drink out of a river, stream, or lake.

The BBC recently reported on a study that said 9 out of 10 Black Friday deals (at least in the UK) weren't really deals as those items were on sale for less sometime during the previous year. So, that little tidbit you shared supports that.

Good real-life scenario advice. Not always convenient to stop at a stream to drink or if traveling in areas where water is scarce.

Local radio station here was giving similar facts this morning, and even how some regular prices are stated higher to that the sale price looks more attractive ... some of the stats stated were shocking
I'd rather be outdoors camping, kayaking, and mountain biking ...

Even if water isn't too scarce (ie near a river), you will still need to go to the river to have a drink which is possible but not really practical if you want to keep your clothes dry and mud free.

One other thing I didn't mention, with something like the Sawyer, you can actually filter water for a few people (yes, it's slow) as you can filter water into a cup or a bottle versus trying to share a Lifestraw.
