For many years, the Millbank Bag was an essential piece of equipment for explorers, bushcrafters and army personnel - saving many lives by filtering life preserving water. Today, most Millbank Bags are surplus, and NOT safe to be used for their intended purpose because they were also used to filter fuel, oil and other nasty chemicals, so using surplus Millbank Bags is a big No No.

How to Use a Millbank Bag
You'd be forgiven for thinking that a Millbank Bag is no longer essential, especially with the invention of water purifying straws and bottles - so let's look at the difference between the two things.
Millbank Bags filter debris from the water, such as leaves, sediment and other detritus. The filtration is essential before purifying the water. Millbank Banks don't purify, they filter water catching all nasty particles so that you have a particle-free liquid to be purified by use of a purification tablet, or use of a purification bottle.
To use the Millbank Bag, simply soak in water to engorge the dense fabric, then then fill with water and hang from a convenient place, allowing the water to slowly drip through into a suitable container. Once your water is filtered - simply sterilize the water by boiling, purifying with a tablet, or using in conjunction with a water purifying tool, such as a bottle or pump.
Boonies Outdoor Survival Tools are essential components for any outdoor adventure - ideal for taking on explorations or using on bushcraft or survival courses.
Each bag can filter approx 3 litres of water per use and is fully reusable.
