I'm preparing a hiking bag I can have at my house so that I can quickly take it with me in an emergency scenario. It will have a whole bunch of powder food, but the container it comes in is large and awkward.
I'm looking for something similar to a camelbak that I could transfer this powder into. I'm having trouble finding a flexible material that won't break and is easily accessible when I need to remove the contents of the bladder. I've looked at a few canteens, but ideally there would be a bigger mouth to remove everything from.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Check this site out:
They've had a number of good articles about putting a bug-out bag together, as well as get-home bags.
Buy or use someone els's Vac Sealer.........A very handy Item that every prepper should have.
Get some Cordura fabric at the fabric store. Get 600 x 600 denier minimum and 1000 denier if you can find it. It's practically bullet proof.
Take the fabric to an upholstery shop, ask them to make you a bag. You could have them make a drawstring top on the bag which could open quite wide. Use Ziplock bags or Vac Sealer inside the Cordura sleeve to protect your powder from moisture.
Light weight, flexible, abrasion resistant and strong.
Thank you! This is exactly the type of thing I was looking for. Will do some more research now. Thanks again.
