Water is your first line of survival. If you are looking for ways to increase your water security, find a good filter for your bug out bag, or find out how to store water or set up a catchment system, then you have come to the right place.

If you have not really thought about your water situation then we suggest starting out with some of our general articles and reading The Ultimate Guide To The Best Survival Water Filters and Top Big Berkey Water Filter Alternatives. Regardless of having water stored, you need to have several water filters.

We suggest having a large capacity water filter for your family and a small affordable water filter like the Sawyer Mini for each person in your household. This set up will ensure that everyone has a personal filter for when they are away from others but you also have a large filter that takes care of household or camp needs.
