72 Hrs Emergency Survival Kit
Main Features: Red backpack; a lot of tools packed for ultimate portability
Use: All emergency scenarios
This is a handy bright red bob, ideal for quick action and high mobility. Why do companies decide to color their products so brightly is anybody’s guess, but it would sure be nice if they’d adopted a liking for darker hues.
Everything perishable within the kit has a 5-year shelf life. The pack can even be customized to accommodate additional people. Besides the fact that it’s not a tornado preparedness kit per se, this little guy still offers the biggest bang for the buck on this list. The kit itself holds 2 food rations, 1200 kcal each, and 20 x water pouch.
In terms of survival gear, we’re talking flashlight (D batteries included) and a 12 hrs light stick, 50 yards of duct tape, a pocket tool (14-in-1), a can opener (3-way), 2 x survival blanket and poncho, leather palm work gloves, 50 x waterproof matches, and a plastic whistle, together with lanyard.
This all is paired up with a 37-piece first aid kit. It’s the most modest tornado preparedness kit on the list, but with the best value-to-money ratio.
