Why a Lifesaver bottle should be included in your Bug Out Bag

Wesley Clarke-Sullivan - Monday, October 17, 2016

The perfect Bug Out Bag is designed to help you evacuate quickly in an emergency situation and survive for up to 3 days just with the contents of your bag. You should be including lots of essential items that will help to protect you, both mentally and physically. A Lifesaver bottle should be one of the first things you pack in your bug out bag because without water, any emergency situation becomes immediately more dangerous.


Water is the most precious commodity in any survival situation. Our body is made up of two thirds water, so the need to replenish these levels and maintain mental and physical performance is vital in any emergency. A Lifesaver bottle can deliver up to 6,000 litres of clean water for individual use. The microbiological water filters use ultra-filtration technology to filter out viruses, bacteria, cysts and parasites from contaminated water sources, so you can prevent illness in the long-run.


A Lifesaver bottle is easy to carry around with you wherever you go and comfortable to use. It holds 750ml at one time so it won’t be too heavy for your bug out bag and it can hold a good amount of water. You can pop it out of your bag and enjoy safe, clean water in any situation where you’re under pressure to maintain your health and wellbeing.


The water filtration technology in a Lifesaver bottle means that you can use the bottle to filter water that you’re unsure about or you know is not up to scratch. This is essential if you’re on the move and in areas with water that has been compromised and drinkable water is scarce. Once you have used up the water you’ve stored in your bottle, you can look for more sources and use the filtering technology to replenish your stock of water and continue to have access to clean water.


In short, it doesn’t really matter what else you pack in your bug out bag if you don’t have water. It’s so essential to have access to drinkable, clean water! If it’s not in your bag, anything else becomes secondary, simply because of the crucial need for water to keep your healthy, hydrated and alive. Water is a basic requirement to keep us ticking over, so if there is no access to water as you travel or any chance of replenishing your water supply along the way then you’ll be in serious trouble.
