Why Choose Datrex Brand?
Over the past 20 years we have tried and offered several brands of emergency water pouches. Some were outright disasters because many brands do NOT HAVE GOOD foil Pakaging seals and LEAK! No one likes to talk about "leakers" but it happens all the time. DATREX is the ONLY BRAND of Emergency Water Pouches we have every carried that almost NEVER HAS LEAKERS! From our point of view, that's huge. We want long term satisified customers and "leakers" don't cut it. Overall, they are just superior*.
In addition, Datrex brand of water pouches have not only meet or exceeded all the requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard for emergency lifeboat water rations, they have been approved by the Canadian Coast Guard and AND all other Coast Guard specifications for countries around the WORLD. They are the only emegency water pouches that have all these certifications. That alone is saying a lot.
Each 4.2 ounce pouch is uses a triple-layered foil pouch that exceeds U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard specs, and each pouch is date stamped to ensure freshness. Not affected when heated or frozen!
When determining how cases you wish to purchase, we suggest planning on using at least 4 and as many as 8 pouches per day, per person. (Just a quick side note— a daily 'lifeboat' ration is 2 pouches of water per day. Yep, that's only 8.4 oz! Just pray you're found fast).
5 Year Shelf Life
U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard Approved!
*Last year we tried some "new" lower cost water pouches. Yep, they were "U.S. Coast Guard Approved" allright, but oh the "leakers". Almost EVERY CASE had pouches that leaked causing water cases to break apart. What a nightmare! We spent hours and hours squeezing each Pakage looking for the "leakers". We couldn't send them to our customers like this. Upon further testing, it was found that the majority of the pouches when squeeze or stepped on, burst with little effort. Coast Guard approval specs require that all water pouches pass such tests. End the end, we shipped them back and cut our losses. Never again. Buyer be warned. (We have had the same problem with other brands too over the years).
We learned again on of life's valuable lessons. It better to sticking with known high quality products to save a few extra cents. (P.S. These other pouches were not "cheap selling" pouches either). Today, we only recommend Datrex brand water pouches. Less problems, less headaches, great value for the money.
