Made to last out of 1.1 oz sil-nylon, this 1 Gallon Water Bag features a light weight carry handle and is the perfect size and weight for solo hikers. Reduce trips to the water source, store extra water for wash-ups and fire safety, etc.
The AntiGravityGear One Gallon Water Bag is designed to be used for carrying water for use within a few hours (3-4) and not storing water long term. While a new brand new bag may hold water all night, over time and the more it is exposed to elements (i.e. detergents, sunlight, abrasive surfaces) you may find, while your bag will still hold water just fine to get you through your morning or evening rituals, it may slowly begin to seep if trying to store water overnight. This is the nature of using coated fabric for this purpose and not a defect.
All this said, with care your bag should function as it was intended. An ultralight solution for caring water and holding it long enough, either hung from a branch or set upon a flat surface, to be used within a few hours. As with all your gear a little TLC goes a long way towards preserving the life of your gear. Avoid detergents, chemicals, abrasive surfaces, prolonged storage attempts and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, and your gear will continue to function during your many adventures.
Save ounces of pack weight!
Carrying only what you need is one of the fundamentals of lightweight and ultralight backpacking. The new AntiGravityGear Lightwater Kit now enables you to apply this philosophy to Aquamira drops like never before!
Each Lightwater Kit includes 2 – 0.25 oz dropper bottles which hold enough Aquamira to treat approximately 20 L of water, 1 – 0.1 oz dropper bottle for mixing in, a re-sealable plastic carry bag, and instructions for use.
How many drops to use: The drops from Lightwater bottles are about half the size of the standard Aquamira drops so use twice the number. For example use 14 of the smaller drops from the Lightwater dropper bottles to equal 7 from the Aquamira bottles. Use the smaller white bottle to mix the drops.
Pre-mixing: The Aquamira company does not recommend pre-mixing quantities for future use because each time you open your pre-mix bottle, the mixture 'gasses off' and loses potency. However, one strategy some hikers use is to only mix a single treatment dose to be used at the next water fill-up. AntiGravityGear does not recommend pre-mixing but if you are going to do this, know that it is against the manufactures recommendations and discard any pre-mix solution that is losing it's color and becoming clear or is more than a few hours old.
Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for use.
An EPA-registered water treatment designed for wilderness and adventure travelers, campers and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Suitable for treating and improving water from rivers, lakes and streams or straight from the tap. Aquamira is 2% aqueous stabilized chlorine dioxide solution. Chlorine dioxide is used worldwide to treat municipal water, and is known to be an eradicator of bacteria (e-coli, salmonella, legionella) viruses (rolio, rotovirus, hepatitus), and protozoa (giardia and cryptosporidium). Works quickly and efficiently by releasing oxygen in a highly active form to kill odor-causing bacteria without unpleasant taste or odor.
