I have a BOB vest multi pocket Jacket. I want to put a form of water purification in one of the pockets. Which is best the tablets purification or liquid form?

Also I have to get a purification kit for my main Bag, Im thinking of a Katadyn kit or a purification straw - which would you recommend?


Thanks for your continuing assistance.

I would go with a few of the Aquamira Tablets and a Reynolds cooking bag or a Purification straw as a 'first tier' (always on your person in a pocket or survival tin). The Reynolds cooking bag will allow you more durable storage of any water, plus allow you to purify it as well.

I would also add a Katadyn filter in my BOB as well as some additional tabs and another storage bladder. All about redundancy.:D:

I've been happy using Micropur tablets for years now when I backpack. I also carry some in my kits and even in my purse. Not really any taste and after using every day for weeks at a time, no side effects.

I would also consider a straw too and a bag for collection like OW suggested.

The bag is a great idea, but I'd recommend a gallon or larger ziplock. The Reynolds oven bags, while large, are actually pretty fragile. I've popped more than a couple while brineing turkey's
