    "if not" can be used in a situation, when things happen only very rarely. (很難得)

    eg 1.

    Jack was bitten by a snake in the forrest, if not because we brought a first-aid supply box with us, Jack could have died from the snake bite.

    eg 2.

    If not we've brought an unbrella, we could have all gotten wet from this storm.

    其實都幾難用中文來翻譯....Maybe consider the translation to be:....." 如果不是____的話 "
