Ales & Lagers Field Notes and Backcountry Water Purification Kit Now Available at ITS

By The ITS Crew

ITS Embossed Field Notes - Drink Local- Ales (Set of 3) 006

We’re excited to launch two new products to the ITS Store today, the ITS Backcountry Water Purification Kit and the Drink Local Edition Field Notes, featuring an embossed ITS Logo on the Ales and Lagers 3-Packs.

ITS Backcountry Water Purification Kit

First up is the ITS Backcountry Water Purification Kit, which is our solution to packing a lightweight water purification kit with you on your travels and adventures.

ITS Backcountry Water Purification Kit 002

Water Purification can be a tricky subject to grasp and it’s hard to know how effectively you’re actually treating the water with some commercial filters and pumps. What we’ve included in our Backcountry Water Purification Kit is what we stand by for treating water, the lightest way we’ve found to repackage it and even an emergency water bag to collect it in.

There are three types of pathogens you’ll encounter in the great outdoors; protozoa, bacteria and viruses. A few examples of what these pathogens include are Giardia and Cryptosporidium in the Protozoa group, Bacteria includes E. Coli and Dysentary, with Hepatitis A and Rotovirus rounding out the Virus group. The last group isn’t as much of a threat as the others in US water sources, but still important to consider.

The Aquamira Drops included in the kit will wipe out all three types of pathogens; 30 minutes to kill Giardia and up to four hours for Cryptosporidium. Usually with chemical treatments you get a terrible aftertaste and discoloration, but Aquamira Drops are nothing like iodine tablets and many of us here don’t mind the subtle taste of Aquamira at all. We feel it actually improves the taste of water and it certainly doesn’t discolor it at all. The Aquamira drops are perfect for adding to your emergency kits or using to preserve your stored water.

ITS Backcountry Water Purification Kit 007

The water bag included in the kit is a one-time-use emergency water bag, featuring a stand-up bottom and the capability of holding 1 liter of water. It measures 5″ wide x 14″ tall. To repackage the Aquamira Drops, we’ve included two small 10 mL opaque white bottles with orange and blue color-coded caps & tips. Opaque bottles prevent reaction of solutions with UV light, which can reduce the efficacy of some chemicals, including Aquamira. These also come with individual waterproof polypropylene labels marked A & B. The Blue bottle is for Part A (Chlorine Dioxide) and the Orange bottle is meant for Part B (Phosphoric Acid Activator.)

A small 3 mL opaque black bottle is also included with matching cap and tip for a premixed supply of Aquamira drops to use at the ready. This is not for long term storage of premixed drops and should be poured out after a day or so on the trail. The black bottle will also protect your premixed drops from damaging UV light.
