Got Water Filters…?


Water is the elixir of life. We cannot live without it for more than 3 days, and with winter already upon us, finding water that isn’t frozen will be your top priority during a disaster situation. While frozen water can be thawed and consumed for winter survival, digging it out, starting a fire, and boiling it down will be a long, drawn out process. Life, and survival itself, will be much easier to accomplish if you have a liquid water resource.

If you are fortunate enough to locate liquid water during the winter, then you must still filter and purify it before it can be considered suitable for human consumption. While there are several DIY water filtration ideas to consider, many of them will be damn near impossible to accomplish while trying to survive in frozen tundra.

With that in mind, it would be a wise idea to have several personal water filtration devices at your disposal, as well as something capable of handling larger groups, or families. Here are a few of the products we recommend.

The Sawyer Water Filter Mini

The Sawyer Water Filter Mini is a personal filtration device that is capable of filtering up to 100,000 gallons of water, providing clean, fresh, potable water in any crisis situation. As a personal water filter for a single individual, this amounts to one gallon of water per day, for 274 years. Needless to say, that is more than sufficient to get you through the toughest of times.

It can also be used to provide water for an entire family. For instance, a family of four, using the same formula above, could enjoy a gallon of water per person, per day, for a period of 70 years. This industrious little gadget weighs a mere 2 oz., making it an ideal choice for everybody’s bugout bags and emergency preparedness kits. Grab yours while supplies last!

The Lifestraw Personal Water Filter

The Lifestraw is a mainstay within the Emergency Preparedness community. This lightweight device is an excellent choice for the individual bugout bag. While it could be used by several members of the family in a pinch, they are cost effective enough for everyone to have their own.

The Lifestraw is also a very easy device to use, which makes it compatible with young members of your preparedness tribe. It really is as simple as sticking one end in the water and drinking through the opposite end, which should prevent any confusion in an otherwise calamitous situation. Grab as many as you need; they make great stocking stuffers this time of year!
