Below is the J.J. Johnson’s of Reality Survival video review of the AquaGear® Radiological Water Filter.
He looks at both the pitcher filter and the filter straw.
Important: These filters are designed to be used with tap water: water that has been filtered of gross particles. They are not field pack filters … although I would carry the straw filter in my bug out kit.
Made in the USA and 100% BPA free, the AquaGear filters remove gross beta particles; they don’t make completely irradiated water safe.
Maybe these should passed out to the residents of Flint, MI and paid for by the politicians and bureaucrats who authorized and oversaw that mess. Just sayin’.
In the Cabela Infographic below are 13 Yes-No questions testing your survival skills readiness.
If you answer yes to question, the graphic leads you along one path. If you answer no, the chart lays out consequences and/or remedies.
Essentially based on the Core 4 and Law of 3’s, along with the critical survival categories (food, water, shelter, security, and communications), the infographic gives a quick insight to your skills level.
If you’re looking for a convenient (but not always less expensive) way to bulk up your supply of survival gear, then purchasing module kits may be a good way to go.
In this video, Black Scout Survival looks at a Solkoa module: their water survival kit. Make no mistake, this kit is a short-term, emergency solution. It’ll get you through a few days only.
Even Solkoa says these are the “minimum components necessary for obtaining, treating and storing water during an unexpected night out or short duration emergencies”.
