Space in your backpack?
Once you have packed your clothes,shoes,toiletries and medicines you might have a little space left in your backpack. I have put together a list of items you might want to consider;
- Water Purification bottle – LifeStraw Go Water Bottle with Integrated 1000-Liter LifeStraw Filter – The award-winning LifeStraw water filter has now been incorporated into a sports bottle to give users access to safe drinking water even when there is no water source nearby. Simply use the bottle to scoop water from any pond, stream or river, and you will have a supply of fresh, clean drinking water. Take the LifeStraw Go with you when you go hiking, camping, or travelling to areas with poor water quality. The LifeStraw filter is the most advanced personal water filter available on the market today. LifeStraw has been rigorously tested to surpass EPA standards for removing E. Coli, Giardia and Cryptosporidium oocysts, and many other waterborne contaminants. The LifeStraw Go filters water down to 0.2 microns without the use of chemicals. When the filter has reached capacity (1,000 liters / 264 gallons) it will stop taking in water. Since the water filter is detachable, you can simply purchase a replacement filter when the filter has reached capacity. The bottle can be reused indefinitely, saving waste from disposable plastic water bottles. Made of BPA-free Tritan, the LifeStraw Go bottle is extremely durable. The food-grade silicone mouthpiece is flexible which prevents it from chipping or cracking, and is removable for easy cleaning. Use the carabiner to attach to your backpack, or store in your preparedness kit to ensure access to safe, clean drinking water in an emergency. Bottle capacity 23 ounces. Dimensions 9 x 3 inches. Weight 7.8 ounces.

Scrubba is a modern take on the old fashioned washboard. Simply drop clothes in the Scrubba and add water and detergent. Seal the dry-bag style closure and open the side valve to release excess air. Grip circles on the exterior prevent the Scrubba from slipping while you rub the bag and activate the hundreds of internal Scrubba nodules that perform the work. Scrubba efficiently cleans your clothes in minutes and provides a machine quality wash. When finished, the Scrubba folds down to a compact size small enough to take anywhere. Great for business trips, outdoor adventures, backpacking trips, boats, emergency preparedness, or even for those without laundry machines at home. Volume of the bag is 3 gallons, but optimal washing volume is 1 gallon when filled with clothes. Doubles as a dry-bag. Made of durable, microbial- and hydrolysis-resistant polyether TPU with a transparent window to see washing and filling levels. A portion of the proceeds from Scrubba sales go towards providing clean drinking water in areas of the world with those in need.
