The Extreme Canteen Kit includes one (1) Extreme Canteen along with one (1) All Weather Poncho, one (1) Glow Stick, one (1) Pen-Flashlight, one (1) First-Aid Kit, one (1) 5-in-1 Whistle, one (1) Thermal Blanket, one (1) package of Water/Wind Proof Matches, one (1) Signal Mirror,one (1) 10ft Plyester Rope, one (1) 11-Function Knife, one (1) Spork, and two (2) Potassium Iodide Capsules.
The 42 oz. Extreme Canteen features Seychelle’s new Advanced/RAD filter.
Seychelle’s Ionic Adsorption Micron Filters are the most laboratory and field-tested of their kind in the world using
EPA/ANSI protocols and tested to NSF Standards 42 and 53 by Broward Testing Laboratory.
Trace minerals are not removed in the filtering process. What’s Good Stays… What’s Bad Goes.
The plastic bottles Seychelle uses are environmentally safe, re-usable, can be recycled. They will not leach and are BPA free. They can provide up to 100 gallons of great-tasting filtered water which is equal to 757 half liters of bottled water for just pennies a gallon.
An Alternative to Bottled Water
In recent years bottled water has come under increased scrutiny because of plastic bottle leaching, and bottled water’s high cost per gallon. Millions of barrels of oil used each year to produce and transport bottled water. Billions of empty bottles end up in landfills each year where they may last for 1,000 years or in the ocean. And, the quality of bottled water is not always assured!
Seychelle portable water filtration products help the environment and are a better alternative to bottled water. They are specifically designed to assure that the water you drink is great-tasting, fresh and clean regardless of the source – straight from the tap; or from rivers, lakes, streams, creeks or ponds. They are ideal for everyday use: camping, hiking, biking, backpacking, at school, the office and extremely beneficial for emergency preparedness.
Seychelle Advanced/RAD Filter
The Advanced filter is made of the same media as the Standard filter with the addition of EPA approved iodinated resin (EPA Reg #: 35917-2), which has been proven effective in the removal of bacteria and virus to six logs (99.9999%). Removes up to 90% of fluoride. It can be used in extreme conditions; turbid and stagnant water; and is ideal for emergencies such as hurricanes, cyclones, etc. such as events that occurred in the US with Katrina, the hurricane in Haiti, and the recent nuclear explosion in Fukushima, Japan.
The Radiological filter removes the four basic zones of contamination: Aesthetic (Chlorine, taste and odor), Chemicals (from Industry and Agriculture), Dissolved Solids (heavy metals such as lead, mercury, Chromium 6) and up to 99.99% of Radiological Contaminants such as Gross Beta, Radon 222, Alpha Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium, Cesium 137 and Radioactive Iodine 131. Removes up to 90% of fluoride.
How It Works
Through medical technology Seychelle created a uniform 2-micron absolute pore size for the assured reduction and removal of the above contaminants. The high-tech porous plastic micro-filter is impregnated with both the finest granulated activated coconut Carbon available and Seychelle’s exclusive adsorbing media for superior analyte removal capability.
In addition, the controlled 2-micron filter contains thousands of Omni-directional pores that result in a “tortuous path” for superior analyte reduction.
Seychelle’s exclusive Ionic-Adsorption Micro-Filtration coordinates all processes of contaminant reduction by Adsorption, Absorption, chemical bonding, chelation, and depth filtration.
All Seychelle filters, from the smallest to the largest are the most field-tested of their kind in the world using EPA/ANSI protocols and NSF Standards 42 and 53 by Broward Testing Laboratories.NSF Standards 42 and 53.
Filter Capacity and Time to Change Filters
Most Seychelle filters deliver up to 100 gallons of great-tasting, clean water before they need to be changed. This is equal to up to 757 half liters of bottled water! The time to change any filter is when the water flow becomes greatly diminished, and it is difficult to squeeze it through the filter bottle.
This guarantee does not cover improper use or maintenance, or premature clogging by overly turbid water.
The filters should not be used with salt water.
Seychelle filters have an indefinite shelf life. For prolonged storage, follow these simple steps:
- Fill the bottle with chlorinated water made by mixing half tsp of chlorine with one US gallon of water. Run this through the system and then rinse and flush with filtered water.
- Allow the bottle/filter assembly to dry overnight unassembled.
- Re-assemble the bottle/filter.
You may now store the product for any length of time.
The use of Potassium Iodide helps in the prevention of radioiodine being absorbed by the thyroid gland. KI must be taken daily until a risk of significant exposure to radioiodine by either inhalation or ingestion no longer exists. This product is ideal for children and pregnant women who may be exposed to high levels radioactive iodine.
World Health Organizations Recommended dosage for Radiological Emergencies Involving Radioactive Iodine.

Recommended Use: Adults take 2 capsules per day, children over 3 years of age take 1 to 2 capules per day and children lass than 3 yers of age consult your health care professional. For maintaining beneficial levels of iodide in the thyroid, use the maximum daily dose. Do not use for more than 10 days without consulting a physician. Use only according to these directions
