If you frequent our website or have basic survival knowledge; you know how important clean drinking water is. If you don't know how important it is--spend a week in Mexico, drink from the tap, and you will soon find out. There are many ways to purify water such as boiling, but that takes precious time and can give away your presence in hot zones. Water purification tabs take awhile to treat your water and they taste bad. Hand pump type filtering systems require you to sit there and pump until your water containers are filled, again taking up precious time. This is the NDūR 38oz Pull top water filtration canteen sold by ProForce Equipment. This canteen allows the user just to scoop and go. Why would this be important? Here are just a few reasons:
- It's easy
- Very portable with few components, no need to carry multiple items.
- Your in a tactical situation
- Your very thirsty and need water immediately
That's just a few reasons. I see the convenience alone as being the major plus. You will already be carrying a water container if your in the wilderness or tactical situation. So the having this canteen on you with a built in filtration system takes up no more space than you would already be carrying.
The Advanced In-line Filter screws into the pull-top cap. The filters can be purchased separately and can be replaced. The filter is a somewhat larger than a standard film container. Each filter will process and purify up to 100 gallons of water. If you have used Iodine purification tablets you know that it takes 2 tablets to purify 1 liter of water. One standard Iodine vial contains 50 tablets, in turn producing 25 liters of clean water. Each vial of Iodine tablets cost around $8 a vial. There are 3.8 liters in a gallon, so you would need around $70 dollars worth of Iodine tablets to produce the same result as the NDūR 38oz Pull top water filtration canteen. With the NDūR 38oz Pull top water filtration canteen coming in at $55.00 (MSRP) this is a true value.
The Advanced In-line Filter it protects you against 99.9999% of viruses and bacteria. It also removes 99.99% of chemical contaminants, including toxic chemicals from agricultural and industrial pollution. The filter can also be re-used over and over again. The water did not have a bad taste like most purification products.
