    Water filter for bob

    Just wondering what water filter you have for your bob?

    I have a 70L Osprey backpack and I have a 2 and a 3L Source wxp hydration bladder I can add into it.

    I don't yet have a filter though but am thinking of having a two filter approach and getting a Katadyn or MSR to quickly pump water and filter out bacteria etc and then also having something like a portable ZeroWater filter for taking out heavy metal nasties. They are meant to be quite good at taking out stuff like Cesium though whether this has been fully tested and is accurate data or just a claim I don't know?

    I may get the Katadyn or MSR for regular use all the time and a ZeroWater just for when the shit hits the fan. Although I guess it could be useful right now it certain areas with higher levels of radioactivity.

    What do you currently use to filter water? Have you given much thought to it?

    I have several options: life saver jerry can, berkey, sawyer mini, lifestraw. Each person has a sawyer mini and lifestraw in their ghb and bob.

    I have the MSR sweetwater in my BOB and the Sawer Mini in my wifes. I think if i had to do it over again i would have gotten the Sawer for my bag because the Sawer costs a lot less.

    In the BOB a Sawyer Mini. I normally don't filter waterc at home, we have a good underground source.

    If the environment has been contaminated with radioactive cesium, presumably a reactor has blown containment or weapons have been detonated. I don't currently prep for that; it's on my to do list. First I guess I'll need about a million sandbags, but I'll look into the ZeroWater. Thanks.

    MSR Sweetwater in my hunting pack and a Katadyne Pocket Microfilter in my other bag.

    If I have to BO, . . . due to many factors akin to my personal situation, . . . I'll probably either be back, . . . or be dead in less than a couple months.

    I'm no longer able to do the "wilderness survival" routine, . . . to say nothing of the fact there is no wilderness in my area.

    That being said, . . . a life straw and a personal Berkey have been put aside for me, . . . and one for my wife, . . . in the BOB, . . . just in case. Together, they will suffice for our needs for that time frame. Less than a $100 for all 4 items, . . .

    May God bless,
