    Okay so was wondering for Bob GEAR what would be a better form for water ( I have purification tabs) a hydration pack that goes on my bob or a water bottle?

    a hydration pack is the easiest way to carry water that I have found.

    My pack has a bladder in it. But my survival kit is in a large water bottle. No water in it. That way I could fill it from a stream and purify without contaminating my bladder.

    A military type canteen with a metal cup is very handy. The cup can be used to boil water and for cooking/warming. :)

    A cup of hot tea or instant coffee from a canteen cup is just the thing on a cold morning.:)

    500 ml is 1/2 liter not 5 liters. Is there a different size bag? Another option is empty wine box bladders and you get to drink the wine.

    I like this 10 liter (2-1/2 gallon) water bladder here.

    http://www.rei.com/product/733948/msr-dromedary-bag-10-liter

    Also, I use this filter when I have hiked the PTC.

    Thread this 32.oz. Nalgene water bottle onto the above MSR MiniWorks filter and it works much easier to filter the water.

    Pretty good iodine tabs here with neutralizer that removes most of the taste and odor of the iodine tabs.

    These folding 10 liter (2-1/2 gallon) buckets not only work well to let sediments or "dregs", if present, settle out of solution a bit before you filter but also allow you to take water to a comfortable location to do so.
