DIY Pocket Water Filter

Bushcraft is a global pursuit and some of the best bushcrafter videos on the web come from countries Americans tend to think of as simply giant urban centers. Here Austrian bushcrafter Lily, aka AloneWolverine1984 on YouTube, demonstrates a quick, cheap way to make a water filter without shelling out your hard earned cash for the ever popular “survival straw” we’re all told we need to carry or we’ll die of thirst in some wild series of mishaps.

American woodsloafers will appreciate the simplicity of her design. Moss, Charcoal and pine pitch are things you’ll have access to in almost every environment except deserts so why drop almost a c-note on a Katadyn?

Be sure to drop by her channel and support her efforts.

  1. Not bad, not bad. Definitely handy to know if I ever end up in a plane-crashed-in-the-Canadian-woodlands “Hatchet” scenario. Otherwise I think I’ll just suck it up and shell out the $15 for a LifeStraw… 🙂
