3 Reasons To Pack A Survival Straw
Most people who spend time in the wilderness know the importance of having a source of fresh and potable drinking water with them. Water after all is what sustains life on this planet. The problem is that all too often people only have one way to get fresh potable water packed in their gear. They will spend a lot of money on the “best” filter and rightfully expect it to perform well in the field. The only problem is that even the best gear can fail. When deep in the wilderness, failure is not an option!
Reason 1 To Carry a Survival Straw
Manual Water Filter Pumps can and do break. A survival straw is a great backup option just in case your primary water filter fails on you in the field. A survival straw is small lightweight and study enough to be packed away with other emergency items and forgotten about, until it is needed. A Survival Straw should not be your only water purification method, they are intended to be a backup!
Reason 2 To Carry A Survival Straw
A survival straw does not have a shelf life, they can be used to filter up to 25 gallons of water and it isn’t going to expire or not be ready for use when you need it most. It also filters out all of the harmful water borne pathogens that are likely to make you sick in the wilderness.
Reason 3 To Carry A Survival Straw
Survival Straws are reasonably priced and can be picked up for less than the cost of eating out for dinner. In fact it makes sense to have a couple on hand to place in your backpacking gear, your Bug Out Bag, Your Get Home Bag and any other place you may need one. Personally, I use the Clearly Filtered Survival Straw and keep it in my Get Home Bag. You can see the other items in my Get Home Bag by Clicking Here.
