The GEN3 Pathfinder wide-mouth stainless steel water bottle and matching saucepan were designed so that the bottle fits inside for convenient, compact storage. Not all containers are the same, and in a survival situation, unless your container can withstand direct fire for the purpose of boiling / sanitizing water, the effects of waterborne pathogens will quickly add to your list of problems.
The wide-mouth design of this bottle allows you to easily draw water from the shallowest puddles, helping to conserve those valuable calories and energy that can be used to aid your rescue.
The Pathfinder Stainless Steel Water Bottle was designed to hold exactly 1 liter of liquid. The reason? purification tablets are usually added to 1000ml of water, in that case you can simply fill your bottle and add the tablets. No more measurements = no more worries. The pot in the kit has oversized folding “batwing” handles with an opening large enough for a gloved hand; and laser-etched measurement graduations on the inside.
