Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. SURVIVA-PURE SURVIVAL STRAW
    [​IMG]
    Contains Web-tex Surviva-pure purification system inside. Filter contains pre-filters & built-in EPA purification medias that will outlast the life of the filter. Filter contains post-purification scrubbing system.
    Includes carry case
    Straw length: 18.8cm
    Colour: Green

    My question... will it purify and make safe to drink, your own urine? :)
     
  2. Being webtex I imagine it is crap at purifying anything but it can probably turn drinking water into something approaching piss.
     
  3. You'd hardly consider drinking someone else's!
     
  4. Price : £99.00 for a waterbottle?

    the webtex survivor pure straw and bottle are rebadged american kit and very good, they also do an inline version for camelbaks.

    its a iodised charcoal resin which does the hard work for you. the bottle is a standard GI type with a sports top so when the filter is finally gash you can break the resin off and just use it as a squashable bottle. being sqeezy means you can use it to fill your other kit.
