Default Swiss military water filtration pack

I saw this at sportsmansguide, is it worth buying?

As a collectible or for use? According to the review and Q&A section they come with no extra filters, no known source for them, and requires a chemical package for final purification. Also not included! I would think if you wanted to use it, the $$$ would be better spent put towards a modern MSR or Katadyn filter system. But as a neat collector item that weighs a ton, go for it!

It will filter a lot faster than the black Berkey filters.

But the black berkeys probably do a better job of it for about the same price.

Especially if you read the whole description rather than the sawed off one at the top.

No, that is just a collectable. Lifestraws are cheaper and work. In a pinch iodine tablets work as well, just don't take the cow shit taste out of the water........trust me.

Somebody is having way too much fun on Sportsmansguide.

I'm with yah. If I don't order a new piece of military surplus every week I start getting headaches.
