I was trying to create a nice list for you guys and gals on a simple DIY water filter kit for camping and hiking, EDC, bug out bag, etc. After all, clean water is the lifeblood of all living creatures. While compiling my list I came across this video by Ultimate Survival Tips which will explain this simple DIY water filtration kit better than I could write it. (Don’t forget to subscribe to UST, he has great videos). Off topic, I’ll try and get some videos going soon!
For now, watch the video below to see this kit in action.
For your convenience here’s a list of the items on Amazon that David mentions in the video*. To get it all at once I’ve gathered everything into an Amazon Canada Wishlist.
