Thanks for some good ideas. You know that pulling on a condom for its intended use can also save your life.

Condoms are so small and lightweight that its worth putting a few in a survival kit, both as emergency water containers and for the originaly intended use.
However as others point proper water bottles, or even reused soft drinks bottles are far more suitable and now very light weight.

Oven roasting bags. Just as small in the pocket, quite a bit larger, stronger and easier to use. Add a twist tie or a binder clip.

As others have said there are better ways to carry/store water.

Keep the condom in the Kit though, you never know when your survival situation may inclued a really HOT Chick, with questionable morals! With that in mind better carry a box or two. grin

Sorry moment of weekness I guess. But just so you know even people of faith get horny from time to time. Or in my case most of the time. So in a survival situation better to be safe than sorry I guess. lol It was meant in jest, hope I did not really offend.
I will never claim to be self righteous or perfect.
