The Swiss water bag was originally designed for use by the Swiss military. Each bag is a military surplus item and is in excellent cosmetic and working condition. As noted, the bag has a volume of 20 liters, or just over 5 gallons, and measures approximately 24 inches by 18 inches when void of water. The twist off spout makes refilling or emptying the bag both quick and easy, while the push-button spigot is great for more controlled dispensing.
Featuring a black rubber construction, this water bag is easily rolled, folded, crumpled or bent to provide convenient storage in a bag or pack. I mention the color of the rubber because some may overlook its significance. The black rubber construction provides for solar heating, which allows you to obtain hot water for a shower. I know what you’re thinking. “Wait a minute – you mean to tell me that the ‘you know what’ has hit the fan and I can still enjoy the comfort of a warm shower?” Yes, you heard right, the Swiss water bag also includes dual rope carrying handles that make transport simple but also allows you to hang the bag for use as a warm, luxurious shower. Okay, maybe it’s not luxurious but it sure will keep your friends from thinking you’re Swamp Thing.
Now that we’re all aware of the dangers of dehydration, you can begin building your survival pack with the Swiss water bag. It is perfect for any outdoor adventure, including the following:
- Survival and emergency situations
- Outdoor labor
- Many more…
The low price puts 20 liters of water at your disposal and makes the thought of survival just a little bit easier to swallow.
What does that mean?
If you’ve taken the time to view our pictures of the Swiss water bag, you have probably noticed that there is some writing displayed on one side of the bag. There are actually three phrases: one in German, one in French and one in Italian. Interestingly enough, these are the three most common languages spoken in Switzerland. Each phrase translates roughly to the same thing in English – for drinking water only.
A quick Internet searches will turn up a few negative reviews of the Swiss water bag. If you read them, however, these people were attempting to use gasoline in a bag that is clearly intended for water only. Rest assured, when used properly, this bag is a great investment.
