This is the second order of these tabs I have purchased. I am a wildlife officer and have used these on several occasions while out in the Everglades. They are packaged perfectly, and have provided much needed water purification for our needs in the bush. I highly recommend these tabs for anyone that is serious about bugout gear or taking extended camping trips where the surrounding water could be suspect to impurities. A+++
I bought this for me and my personal safety plans. I actually gave this to my cousin who went to visit India and asked him to give it a try after he asked me why I liked them. I used them on a recent excursion into the Apps and was pleasantly surprised. You need to follow the directions on use, but it's very simple. My cousin came back and told me it was actually very good to use in India and they spent time in some more rural areas.
I'd say its a necessity to have this. For anyone who is safety planning. Always good to have lot of bottled water or packs, life straw (or equivalent), and tabs. The last two are very good for quick needs in tough spots.
Absolutely essential where I'm going (Africa). Never failed me yet.
