It's that time of year again everyone. Time for product reviews Product
: MSR Dromedary 10 Liter BagFunction
: Water storage.Price
: Varies depending on size. Bag reviewed was purchased for $20.Evaluation
Over the past year, I've used my MSR Dromedary water storage bag and finally sat down to type up a proper review. Here are a few features of the bag that I like the most.
1. Compact Size
. When empty, this bag takes up less space than 10 sheets of paper if you position the cap end correctly in your pack.
. The MSR Dromedary series fits a variety of water purifications filters. For my testing purposes, I've used a MSR Mini-Microworks EX filter, which screws directly onto the bag. The pictures show the detail:
Simply take one filter (in hand) and one bag (on knee, note the open cap) and attach.
Toss out your filter line:
The MSR Dromedary bag series come standard with a very strong cord and grommet system which allows you, with a bit of paracord and somewhere to mount it to, a place to hang your water bag wherever you so need it.
3b. The bag has two settings for rate of flow of your water. Wide open (for filling canteens and the like) and trickle, to fill your cooking pots or to wash your hands.
: These bags are practically indestrictible. They can be frozen, ran over once full, dropped from great heights, etc etc. This was the main reason I purchased one. When I'm bugging out, I expect my water blister to be full of drinkable water, not to be burst and frozen over night Conclusion
The MSR Dromedary series of bags should be added to every serious BOB kit. Purchase of such a bag and a decent filter is an inexpensive way to bulletproof your BOB's water system.
