Originally designed for laboratory work, Whirl-Pak bags make great emergency water collection, purification, and storage bags, and are also great for storing food. They're completely sterile and food-safe, and will not leach harmful chemicals into your water or food supply. They are shipped sealed; you can always tell that your bag is completely sterile and has never been used, since you have to remove a perforated tab prior to use. Each bag has a writable area for you to add notes ("non-potable" for instance). Whirl-Pak bags are ideal for survival kits, because they roll to very compact dimensions, weigh very little, and are incredibly tough. Several US Military Kits specify Whirl-Pak bags for emergency water collection, treatment, and storage. They can even be used to make an improvised solar vegetation still. The 4.0 mil wall thickness means that this is a durable bag, extremely resistant to puncture or tearing. These bags stand on their own thanks the gusseted bottom construction. This means you're unlikely to spill precious sterilized water. They are safe for use with chlorine tablets, iodine tablets, or UV purification systems.

The only reason I don't give this product five stars is the one weakness I found. If you press on the sides of the bag with even moderate force the wire closures will yield just enough to let the seal roll unwrap and the water comes out. If the bag is sitting still it's no big deal, but if you had to carry the bag in a backpack or other emergency situation it would be likely to open.
Given that I plan to use various purification products that take time to work, the idea would be to put water in the bag with the pill, place the bag in a pack and come back to it four hours later. By itself, however, I could not count on this product to do that.
However, I experimented with using another product, Clip-n-Seal Bag Clips (Small). These bag clips are not designed to be perfectly watertight, but they do give a good, strong, mechanical seal to a bag. By putting one of these fairly light and cheap bag clips on to one of the bags it became significantly more difficult to force the bag open. In fact, even with a few (very light) punches to the bag it remained closed and watertight.
As a combination, these bags along with the clips are a perfect, inexpensive way to provide for water storage AND transport in an emergency situation. I now have two of these combinations in all of my family's kits. I would strongly recommend them to anyone. If they were sold as a set, I would give it five stars.
