Got your Lifestraw yet? I have quite a few of these beauties and at around $20 each over at Campingsurvival.com they really are a bargain. I have purchased a Lifestraw for all of our BOBs, and separately in one of my chest rig’s grenade pouches. The thought is that if for some reason I have to drop my back and run, I’ll still have the ability to drink water (that and the fact that I probably won’t be able to source any live grenades anytime soon). I can’t take credit for that load plan as the Maj tuned me in after a few email exchanges.
In any event, check out this video and don’t overlook the power of the Lifestraw! Having potable water to drink is easily tops of any list in just about any survival situation.
