Went to Cax a while back and there were some Marines who had a certain type of desert water bag. It almost looked like a sandbag , but the Marine would put water in it tie it up , and strap it on to a humvee. They would drive around all day and when later on during the day or at night they would have nice cool water. I dont remember what this was called but does anyone have any ideas or where I could buy one. Awesome piece of gear.

I'm showing my age here, but when growing up in the Texas Hill Country, we would travel to South Texas. Wasn't that far, but it took a bit of driving time back then.

Anyway, my Dad had a canvas type bag, that when filled with water, he would tie on to the bumper and off we'd go.

The water was ALWAYS cool when we wanted a drink.

Methinks it is of the same principle and prolly cost about a 100 times less.

I used it in stumps and took it to Beirut...bought it a Saigon Sam's surplus here in NC.Advertised as a desert bag. It worked. Cool water the process of evaporation. S/F Chuck Hall :evilgrin:
