Hello, my friend and welcome back! My friends over at Survival Hax dot com sent me one of their Water Purifier bottles to try out and review. In the past, I have reviewed a couple of their products and have always found them to be a great value; so I put this through a few test and in today’s post we are going to look at what I found. Grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.

First impressions: The bottle arrived in a sturdy box with the Survival Hax logo imprinted on it. This lets me know right out of the gate that it is not some Drop shipment item and that they apparently took the time to test it themselves before putting their logo on it. Something I noticed was the tip of the drinking straw has a nice soft silicone end on it that is different from all others I have tried in the past. Let’s put it through a few test and see how it holds up though.
Testing Done: So, just how do you test a water bottle like this? I decided to put it through a few test that you might expect it to encounter on the trail. First I filled it with water and checked for leaks of any kind. There were none because the silicone washer attached to the head works really well and won’t dry out like rubber ones. Next, I emptied the water out and dropped it several times from about 6 foot onto a concrete floor but the hard bottle did not crack. Then I filled it back up with water and repeated the test. Much to my surprise, it held up without cracking. (I should have known that if it is from Survival Hax then it has to be tough.) Next, I filled it with water from a nearby lake and tried it out. The water was easy to draw through and tasted fine. (No chemically taste or after taste. OK, so it’s a tough water bottle that does what it says. I did remove the filter and reinstalled it just to see how hard it is and it was very easy to do. I’m not sure, but it looks like you might be able to replace the filter with a Lifestraw, if you had to, since I didn’t see any replacement filters available on the website. Maybe Survival Hax can clarify that for me in the comments below?
- PROS: It has a sturdy BPA Free water bottle that held up under some really rugged testing.
- Silicone mouth piece, so you don’t scratch your lips when drinking from it.
- Replaceable filter.
- The filter is good for 396 gallons of water before needing to be replaced.
- One heck of a great value at $17.99!
CONS: Nothing, nada, zip, zero zilch!
Conclusion: We all know that we need a water purifier with our bugout bag, and it only makes good sense to have one with an attached bottle for drinking from. Having one that allows you to change the filter is a huge benefit by its self. The truth is, I just can’t say enough good things about this water bottle. It’s tough, it’s strong and it has an awesome water filter in it. With a price of just $17.99, what more could you ask for in a filtered drinking water bottle? I know I’m going to add several of these to my preps for sure. All in all, I give this bottle five out of five stars.
This is one of those products that is a true gem when it comes to supplies you can count on at a great price. I will always have one with me from now on in my get home bag and my bug out bag as well. You need to get you one of these while you still can because it is one purchase that you will not regret. I really want to thank Survival Hax for allowing me to review this bottle and for producing such a great product and great value. Well I guess that is it for today, so until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
