It’s not just a scare tactic put out there that going three to four days without water can kill you—it’s an absolute, indisputable fact!

Science doesn’t lie, and when your body is severely lacking this precious liquid, very bad things happen. Headaches become intense, concentration diminishes, aches and pains develop, and your mouth, skin and lips become incredibly dry. In the worst cases, you risk suffering extreme fatigue, lethargy, accelerated heartbeat and, ultimately, death.

Now, the important thing to remember is that not all water is safe to drink, no matter how tempting it is to your dry throat and thirsty lips. In fact, raw water found in lakes, ponds, rivers and even puddles is inundated with an assortment of contaminants and pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, molds and protozoa— all possibly life-threatening if ingested and left untreated.

However, there are numerous solutions that turn questionable water into a safe, life-sustaining fluid. These include filters, purifiers and chemical additives. From simple tablets to table-top filtering fixtures, the choices are diverse, but all are ready to provide safe water today and for future survival situations and outdoor adventures.

Sawyer 1-Gallon Water Filtration System


Ideal for larger groups or families, this “big boy” can handle up to a gallon of questionable water and filter it clean and ready to drink within 10 minutes. Using gravity and Sawyer’s MINI 0.1-micron absolute hollow-fiber filter to get the job done, cysts, dangerous bacteria and harmful protozoa won’t slip through, allowing you to enjoy crisp, clean, life-saving water. The kit includes gravity bladder, filter, cleaning plunger, cleaning coupling, tubing and tube protector.
