One of the problems that often occurs in people in emergency or extreme situations is the lack of capacity for collecting, storing and carrying water. The need to create portable water supplies is especially relevant when it is decided not to wait for rescue and help on the spot, but to move independently towards populated areas. However, it is impossible to know exactly when and where the next source of water will be detected..
Means and containers for collecting, storing, transporting and carrying water in a survival kit and NAZ, a condom, a plastic bag.
As small-sized water tanks in a portable survival kit, condoms, plastic bags for rubbish, universal bags for freezing, etc. can be used. In addition, you can try to make water containers yourself from improvised means. Each of these items has its own advantages and disadvantages, we will dwell on them in more detail..
Condom as a container for water in the NAZ.
The main advantage of a condom is its small size, which allows you to put it even in the smallest wearable survival kit. At the same time, up to two liters of water is placed in it. Condoms must be carried in a scarf, bandana, sleeve, sock, etc., but very carefully. Regardless of the stated strength, the condom may burst at the most inopportune moment. Filling the condom with tap water is not a problem due to the force of the pressure of the water. But to do this in stagnant or weakly flowing water of a natural reservoir is rather problematic; water is pushed out of it back.
However, if you open the opening of the condom as widely as possible and try to drive as much water as possible inside with quick scooping movements, then in the end your attempts will succeed. Try to keep the condom from touching the bottom of the pond. Another way to get water is to hold the condom with one hand. Pour the other into it from above using a mug, cap, boot, or some other container. Thus, gradually stretching and filling it with water. But to fill the condom with snow, so that then let us warm and melt it bosom in the water is very difficult, long and hardly advisable.
There is an opinion that only condoms without lubrication are suitable and suitable for survival kits. By and large, there is absolutely no difference, except that a condom with a lubricant will slip out of your hands at the slightest action with it. But after all, this grease can be simply wiped off or washed off with water. Therefore, just buy the most durable condoms in your survival kit, regardless of whether they are lubricated or not..
