Good for the money, but water packages broke after a few months of storing.
on September 16, 2013
I bought this when it was only around 35$, so I thought it's a good set for the price. I recently moved it around and saw that the water packages broke in both of my sets. They are in tetra paks (Milk cartons) and the seams broke at some of them, soaking the rest of them and the bottom of my backpacks. This is a huge design flaw for an emergency pack!
Luckily Amazon was great about it and I get a partial refund and I'll just replace the water as the rest is still intact.
Otherwise it's a good start and better than nothing, but it needs additional things like a radio, a flashlights, probably a water purifier and some sort of fire starter. I would not get it for the current price (88$), but for around 35$ it's great.
