Is this a Bladder?

Of course not. But, it’s shaped like one.

Do you know what this is and how it’s used for? It has the word Microban® embossed on it which means antimicrobial protection is built into this product during manufacturing to provide continuous antimicrobial product protection.

5 tsp of lime juice was added into this pack of water to give it some flavour. Just joking lah. It’s to reduce plastic taste. But, it’ll probably taste better? 😉

Spray it sparingly to wet your mouth and quench thirst. 

This is probably used to sustain soldiers (and those trekking in no-man’s land) out in the field for more than 1 day?

3 litres is probably not enough for me. I drink at least 1.25 litres of water everyday.

Do you know what it is now?

It’s call water bladder 🙂

Who has carried and used this before? Do share with me your experience 🙂



  1. Hey Hyacinthus,

    I use a bladder for trekking. It’s not supposed to last you for more than a day. You’re supposed to camp by a river and refill the bladder with river water every day.

    Add some Puritab (R) which is a chlorine tablet to kill germs every time you refill. If you’re out of Puritab, just use a few drops of Iodine.

    Safe as Newater.

  2. oh my! drink river water? camp by river?

    guess that’s why i’ve never trekked or used a water bladder before.

    thanks for sharing 🙂
