Since 1944, Smokey Bear has promoted a message of preventing unwanted human-caused wildfires. A portion of the proceeds from officially licensed Smokey Bear merchandise helps fund the nationwide wildfire prevention campaign.
Survival Handkerchief-Filter Bandana: Water Pre-Filtration and Air-Contaminant Face Barrier.
Handkerchiefs built to assist in fire-crafting, purifying water, filtering toxic air, and more. It's the multi-tool of rags. Engineered with a 1 micron nominal non-woven filter. The filter inside the bandana allows you to treat water on the fly using as a straining system or use as a hand to mouth mask to shield from the effects of gases/smoke and airborne contaminates. In an emergency scenario; filtered water can be consumed to prevent dehydration. Additionally, in the event of a fire or hazardous release of gases/particulates; filter can be placed over airways to negate effects to aid in escape from scene. Bandana can be used as an improvised field dressing to stop blood loss by applying to wound.
Water Filter: Non-woven, polymer fiber matrix filter, rated as a nominal 1 Micron filter. Serves as field expedient filter. Particulates and micro-organisms larger than 1 Micron sieve pours are captured and filtered from water. Pores and membranes allow water permeation (flux) and broad-spectrum separation on nano-particulates. Material is a food grade polyester hybrid (quick-drying) to inhibit mold growth.
Dusk Mask / Air Respirator: 1 Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM) air flow filter capable of capturing harmful particles and contaminates such as carcinogens, exhaust, and other pollutants (such as formaldehyde, toluene, hydrogen sulfide and ammonia). Serves as barrier against harmful gas such as benzene and carbinol and airborne pathogens.
SPECS: 2 fabric outer layers with an inner 1 Micron Polymer Filter sewn inside the center between outer layers, est. 10" x 10" size.
*Abilities to filter water and air particulates based on manufactures claims, independent studies/lab tests, and testing with TDS monitor, UV dissolution observation, PH, Coliform Bacteria, Lead, Pesticides, Chlorine, Total Hardness, and Nitrates/Nitrites test kits.
*Use at your own risk based on your training and experiences. Materials are not FDA/EPA approved for water purification.
*Recommended use is as a pre-filter and improvised airborne safety mask.
*Hank is semi-rigid but still foldable and pliable.
