Water Flask: From a Waterskin to a Hydrator

Any survival kit includes water tank. No wonder! In terms of survival, water = life. Without it, neither eat nor shit. If you think survivalist (tourist / hunter / sane person), you’re so-so, and secondly, I will not exaggerate the fact that flask is needed. Delve into history.

Jar – the beginning

It began to become possible to receive oils from the Hyksos (the first tribe that attacked the Egyptians). Then, 4000 years ago, water was worn in waterskins – bag, made of animal skin with water. The lines of the lines of movement were moving.

Humanity used under flasks it can even be a pumpkin and coconuts, providing a stopper from (drumming!) cork. Nothing has happened to this 19th century. During this period, technology has evolved so that flasks began to blow out of glass. Although it was not a subject of non-necessities and it was rarely used by the soldiers.

The historical development of the flask

Flourishing flask The era began in the 1900s. It’s not a problem. Period of romantics and adventurers. At the time options flasks there was more than a lot. Metal still regretted this case.

Hydrator and plastic bottlesHydrator and plastic bottles

Do not forget about the product. plastic bottle Lightweight, comfortable, relatively durable and conditionally disposable. But who stops it!? Easy to reach and convenient to use. In general, some advantages. Well, if you do not take into account that such hot water bottle easily deformed down to the holes. For many long-term use of emit biphenol. What is he terrible? By its formula, Biphenol A is similar to estrogen. So taking a long time plastic bottle Misha will be able to make it a bit more fun … which descendants will beat you with tentacles.

  2. high density polyethylene, denoted by HDPE or PE-HD,
  3. low density polyethylene, denoted LDPE or PE-LD,
  4. polypropylene, denoted by PP,
  5. polystyrene, denoted by PS.

Most of the time bottles. Well, or buy dishes with marking BPA free. It is that with a green trefoil.

Eventually

In my opinion, flask evolved over the past 50-70 years stronger than the previous 4000. This road will lead wineskin, only time will tell.
