Eye In The Sky said:I've had no problem with mine; I've 'tested it' with lake water. They're fairly durable, for the construction, I find. I had one that went in my "evasion" pack on 3 ROTOs of IMPACT and it didn't crack. I didn't switch to the metal case when they came out with that model.
I first saw it on an episode of Survivorman; he was using it to drink water from a pond/Stillwater source that had runoff from a sheep pasture and he was fine. I bought one almost immediately. lol
I used to watch Survivorman frequently, but haven’t in a while. I haven’t ever known him to (help) endorse any product that was faulty or of poor quality, so that’s great.
I’m not into a hardcore survivalist lifestyle or anything like that, but over recent years have been increasingly interested in learning how to live off the land and making sure I have some key supplies if it ever came down to it. My son and I love camping and we both have a (mis)adventurous streak running through our veins. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that we’d need to depend on some emergency supplies at some point. Plus, it’s nice just having certain things for plain ole enjoying-the-outdoors anyway.
The Coleman classic burner you listed in your other post is great. My brother gave me his slightly used one and I love it. Along with my Lifestraw is just a simple small/compact set of metal dish and cooking ware, since what I had was in pretty rough shape.
