Quick Overview

Here is a topic I have yet to tackle – survival. Of course, as I sit behind my computer basking in warmth while sipping on a hot cup of coffee, survival is one of the furthest things from my mind. It has always come naturally. However, as we prepare for the year 2012, I cannot seem to escape the warnings of Armageddon and other paranoid ranting. So I will have the survival discussion; because, like Yosemite Sam said back in 1950, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” Speaking of “Looney Tunes,” remember when Daffy Duck was walking through the Sahara and thought he spotted the sweet relief of an oasis? Turns out he was just hallucinating – probably due to dehydration.


Proper hydration is one of the most important considerations for survival. Human beings cannot survive more than a few days without water – even less in sub-optimal conditions. Trust me when I say that dehydration is to be avoided at all costs. Like usual, Keepshooting.com has your survival needs covered with our new Swiss water bag. The Swiss water bag is a military surplus item used for storing and dispensing up to 20 liters of water (or just over 5 gallons). The plastic spigot makes dispensing water quick and easy in any situation, including: emergencies, camping, hiking or any other outdoor activity. When not in use, the bag can be folded up and stored in any bag, pack or other compact space as portability is also an important consideration when it comes to survival.


Now, I don’t want to force the Swiss water bag on you, but it really is a necessity. It is the perfect survival tool – not that anyone can put a price on survival.

Details

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

- Camping

- Hiking

- Hunting

- 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.

If you don't want to spend top dollar for a water container or bladder then this is the next best thing in terms of price and quality. Quality wise, this is the best water bag I have ever used, bar none.

Heavy duty rubber water bladder was an excellent purchase
I bought 4 of these when they were on sale a couple years ago. After having them this long I'm still very pleased. These are as rugged as possible and would cost easily 4x or 5x as much new retail...If you could find. They do add a rubber taste but there are products that can be added to clean and help to mitigate this. Also useful as a pillow when filled with air. Highly Recommended.

Holding tank!
In great heavy duty condition. Heavy build quality and a lot of capacity.
"Car camping" shower and dirty dish cleaning unit.. It's large and in charge.
This just needs a spray adapted end fitting and you are in business.

Emergency Water for Days!
Bought one of these a while back, I really like it, I planned to use it for rucking but I realized how heavy it got filled with water and I immediately opted for weights. It carries a TON of water and is easily transportable, just not if you're not used to carrying this weight. Wouldn't attach it to a pack, would keep this in a truck, just make sure it isn't leaky, some of them need some work on the cap. Emergency water for days!
