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.

Has, everything you need-, hope you never need it!

Enough room to add some additional items (e.g., a multi-tool or swiss army knife, small roll of toilet paper, small radio, etc).

Hello I highly recommend this Grab and Go pack, just to have in the car or home in case of emergency.

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!

This bag tempted me: it's one stop shopping for not only an earthquake bag but a bug-out bag. We don't have earthquakes (well, not true, we had one last summer that shook my office like a rag doll, but we ARE subject to tornadoes.)

So a bug-out bag is a good idea.

But this one is a bit light on content and I think you could do better.

What it has:
Emergency food bars
Water
Emergency Blankets
First aid kit
Light sticks
Dust masks
Nonlatex gloves
Whistle
Poncho raincoats
And a not very sturdy backpack.

Here's what I suggest:

Take a big backpack you have already bought (one the kids think is gross, or you have as a spare, or go find one at Goodwill or buy one new, a good one.)

Buy energy bars you like, because there's nothing like eating a horrible one.
Add the water, ponchos (you can find ones that button up into a palm-sized bundle), roll up hat, stocking cap, mittens, emergency crank radio, some batteries, hotel toiletries like soap bars, disposable toothbrush and small tube of paste, basic first aid kit in a box (drugstores have these) a flashlight, a disposable camera (! yes, your cell phone might be out of power), a deck of cards, space blankets, matches in a waterproof box, or a fire striker, possibly 2 blow up travel pillows (you might be sleeping sitting up!) extra underwear and a tee shirt, socks, a pair of sneakers (you might be in sandals or in the wrong shoes), some sugar candy, some cash, some packs of instant drinks WITH sugar (can be made up or eaten), an air horn, some MACE. (attack dogs?) and an all purpose knife or Leatherman tool. If dust is an issue (earthquake, other destruction) add that mask.

And go read Build your Bug Out Bag for better suggestions, and don't forget the dog. If he's as big as mine, he needs his own pack to wear.
