If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times.

“Hydrate or die."

(Isn’t that a slogan for some company somewhere?)

And it’s true. The human body is 60 percent water. You stop drinking, you’ve got about 10 days before your body turns off — no food, and you’ve got more than a week.

So drink up and drink often.

But what’s even worse is that your body will dehydrate itself if you drink contaminated water. Getting Giardiasis or E-Coli from water pulled out of a stream or puddle can result in serious intestinal problems that can kill.

So if the SHTF or you’re out in the field on an op, how do you fill up your hydration bladder or bottle with the water around you and be assured it’s safe?

You can go old school and drop some bleach into your water. You can carry heavy bottles with purified water. Or you can use an off-the-shelf filtration system that’s light, durable and functional on just about any patch of pond scum you come upon.

That’s where companies like Survival Filter come in.

The technology for portable, and long-term reusable water filters has progressed immensely over the years. The sheer number of gallons of water they can treat, the reusability of the filters and the direct-to-mouth versatility make this crucial survival tool cheap and easy to buy and carry.

We tested out the Survival Filter Squeeze water filter and Filter Bottle at this year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas and used a sample of the Filter Bottle for a week afterward and came away pretty impressed.
