  1. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    I currently have a klean kanteen 40 Oz water bottle, and while mostly happy with it, it does have a flaw that annoys me and I am wondering if the nalgene is any better. Because of how the threads are formed, and the top lip being rolled in the klean kanteen has a few small groves that are...

    Found the answer online. Apparently copper will not stop bacteria in wet environments. "The difference between dry and wet surfaces, such as copper pipes, is that only dry surfaces are inhospitable environments for bacterial growth. Bacteria can easily grow and reproduce in wet environments...

    My PSK is the core system of the two bags that I use, my Wilderness Bag and my Go & Get Home Bag. Designed to be easily moved from bag to bag as needed, or carried on its own. If not in a pack, my PSK is designed to be a belt carry system. When I drop my pack, the PSK goes on the belt. I have a...

    I have been buying old Nalgene bottles when I see them for a Loonie or Twonie at thrift stores with the idea of using them as above ground/slightly buried "urban" caches. I have read this interesting thread here about locations: http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=145151 But what...

    Introduction Every now and then, I come across a post or YouTube video where someone creates a small "survival kit" inside a water bottle, so I decided to take my own shot at one. Since I am of the mindset that a kit should be built with a specific goal in mind, the goal of this kit is...

    I've been working on my family's GHBs and was wondering about the water. I plan on buying metal bottles for the packs, but can I put plastic bottles already containing water in there? I've heard the bottles leak the plastic (or something like that) if they're left in the heat of your car. That's...

    OK, so I bought 2 Nalgene #4 bottles at Gander Mountain and I find the water put inside tastes like plastic extremely fast. Can I get the taste out without resorting to flavoring the water with Gatorade or using other bottles? Thanks!

    I ordered a 3600 calorie food bar and I'm also getting 6 of those little 4 oz emergency water packets. I don't hold these tiny things in particularly high regard. When I carry drinking water, I carry a nalgene bottle and I'm considering a canteen. When I store water long term, I am thinking to...

    Now, I know these exist right from the store but, I have yet to find a ready made kit that meets my 'seal of approval' with regard to contents and quality. So, here is a 'water bottle kit' I am beginning to put together and would love some feedback on. Why a water bottle kit? Isn't water the...
