Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Each kit contains enough emergency supplies to sustain two people for three days, as recommended by the American Red Cross. There's food, water, and emergency blankets, plus a 33-piece First Aid kit, two 12-hour safety light sticks, dust masks, nitrile gloves, and an emergency whistle. Each kit also contains emergency ponchos and pocket tissues. The kit, in a handy backpack, can be stored at home, at school, or at the office.

Product Description

Because you never know when there will be an emergency situation, it's wise to always be prepared. Keeping the Grab 'n Go 3-day, 2-person backpack on hand at home, at school, or at the office can help you avoid being caught without necessary supplies. Each kit contains enough emergency supplies to sustain two people for three days. The three basic essentials, as recommended by the American Red Cross--food, water, and emergency blankets for shelter and warmth--are included in every handy backpack.

I love this backpack has some extra room - so you can add essential items for your family that aren't included.

I purchased this as kind of a starter kit, and while it helps to give you an idea of some useful things to put together, it really falls short in delivering several of them. What I found was that it had the cheapest possible versions of everything it was providing. After getting this and looking what was in it, I pretty much started from scratch with a new bag (the one that came with the kit has a single stitch that was already failing when I first opened it with a 3-inch tear by the zipper).

For ~$40, you get a good starter kit, though:
Emergency food bars
Water
Emergency Blankets
VERY basic first aid kit
Light sticks
Dust masks
Nitrile gloves
Whistle
Ponchos
Tissue

My problems are as follows:
The backpack was falling apart from the get-go.
The first aid kit was too basic to be very useful (it's the kind that you might toss in your back pocket for daily carry).
The emergency blankets are pretty standard and cheap to buy.
The 12-hour light sticks are easily and cheaply upgraded to the 200hr LED glow sticks for $5 per 3-pack at Home Depot.
Dust masks can be had at the dollar store.
Gloves are really cheap (the ones that came in my kit were replaced immediately as they were just too cheap to rely on).
The whistle is just a whistle.
Ponchos are pretty standard and cheap to buy.
Tissue could be replaced with a ziplock bag of tissues and be just as effective.

If you're looking to build a cheap emergency kit, look at the individual contents of this and decide what you need. If I were ever to rely on this, I would be a bit afraid.

I love this backpack has some extra room - so you can add essential items for your family that aren't included. Overall - a really good start. I added a Swiss army knife, some gum and hard candy, pull ups (I have small kids), sanitary napkins, and a few other odds and ends to make this a more complete bag for our family.
I used this as a start, then created my own bag (we have five in our family). I would feel very safe with just the contents that came in the bag though. The things I added were just "extras" that were important to me.
If you don't have a 72 hour kit - go ahead and purchase this one. It will get you at least moderately prepared and you can build from there. The bag is small, so it will easily fit in almost any trunk and I "think" would probably even fit in a motorcycle carrier. So, just like jumper cables should be in every trunk, this would be an easy way to be a little more safe. The food products and water are good for five years, so you don't have to think about it and rotate things out every six months as you would with something like bottled water.

What they do not tell you up front is that the items in the kit have a one year expiration date and they want you to sign up for annual replacements.

This kit has almost everything you need for an emergency. It is compact, and easy to take with you. I only needed to add an emergency radio, flashlight and some batteries. It is a time saver also. It is easier than trying to gather all the products that are included in it. A real bargain!

Hello
I highly recommend this Grab and Go pack, just to have in the car or home in case of emergency. My comment about the size notwithstanding, it has everything to get me by for a few days should something nasty happen. I have supplemented it with my own first aid and fire starting additions, and it should prove handy if I ever need it.

As pointed out in other reviews, this product is mislabeled. It is really a 2 small children or 1 large pre-teen child supplemental survival kit. It is totally inadequate for 2 adults or teenagers, and might do in an emergency for 1 adult if generously supplemented.

Basically, you would be buying this for the additional food and water.

So, it is good only as a child's survival kit backup to a 3-4 person family survival kit.

One task I had to perform was putting all the water vulnerable items in zip-loc quart and gallon bags to protect them against drenching rain.

This product makes no false statements. You get what it says. It is very much only for an emergency. The bag is small enough to make it a daily travler in any car. The first aid kit is just enough for basic cuts and such. The bag has about a 4" by 4" section to keep additional items like a multi-tool and flashlight. Do not expect a large bag for "survial" equipment, it is a basic emergency kit.

This is great for an emergency, the pack has the vital things like water food bars. enough for three days
I think this pack is a great starting point. I think it would be good to create your own grab and go. I put things in there that are not included in this pack. plus I bought my own back pack which is far larger.
This pack is small. Some of the items in my larger pack quality compass paracord leatherman 300 multi tool waterproof matches. magnifying glass. water treatment tablets extra emergency blankets flint starter. A small hammer
Extra bandages, I am not finished with this yet, but you get the idea things you may not be able to do without
in any emergency situation. I do recomend the quake kit!!!But also make your own you can never be over prepared.
