These packs are excellent for emergency purposes and are in a familiar type package. So I recomend as far as the actual Water Package. I bought three boxes of the 3-day supply. However, the warning I want to advise buyers about is that the 3 day supply come in cardboard boxes filled to the top with these packages without any barrier to protect them from if you attempt to open the box with a knife of any kind, as I did, it would be very easy to cut through several of these packages while opening the box they ship in, so be aware that you should not drive a knife into any of the seems of the taped areas of the shipment box while trying to open the box they come in cause it will be very easy to tear through one or several of the water packs. I almost did, but fortunately suffered no damage. Outside of that this is a must have if you live in Hurricane Territory or are going out into a survival situation (wilderness camping/hiking), or are a prepper of any kind. By the way, the boxes they ship in are ideal for storing them long term since they are very compact and sturdy being about 10 inches long 4 inches wide and 5 inches tall. Would be 5 Stars, but I gave 4 stars cause they should put some label on the box warning of the poissibility of rupturing the packs when opening the box or put some linning on top of the water packs to protect them. Recomend.

Perfect for a Bugout Bag. However it is not the correct amount of water for 3 days, FEMA Recommends 1 gallon per day per person, this is only 1.5Liters. 1 gallon = 3.78 liters. So you would need QTY 2 so 24 packets.

I bought this 72 hour water supply as an addition to my "Earthquake/Emergency preparedness kit." The water packages seem to be well constructed and haven't burst under pressure, even when I sat on my bag! I don't think there's enough water for two people, especially if you're on the move, but that's why they're called emergency rations. I recommend you buy 12 packets/person and have a Camelback or some other water container easily accessible and ready to go if the proverbial @#*! ever hits the fan! Good luck!

I ordered three of these for our 72 hour emergency kit and came back to order some more for our pets. The pouches remind me of Capri Sun kid drinks. Ordered September 2011 and all pouches expire in 2016. One pack came in one plastic zip lock bag. Very light weight.

Size: Case of 64 Pouches Verified Purchase
I'll spare you the majority of the boring details about leak detection, but the fastest way is laying these out on sheets of paper and then applying a small amount pressure using the palm of your hand and letting them sit for about 15 minutes. Check the packets and paper for any moisture, then flip the packs over and repeat.

So far, 6 of the packs have leaks. There MAY be more, but that is the amount that I can state with absolute certainty. You might feel that 6 out of 64 could be considered a "small amount" of damage. My opinion, is that I paid for 64 packs undamaged packs. Not 58.

The larger problem with these leaks is that if left in these cardboard shipping boxes (which I think most people might do), this "small amount" of leaking still leads to moisture in a paper box, leading to mold. Obviously, mold is bad. So, I have decided to store these packets in a plastic box, away from light/heat and I would urge you to do the same.

Since Amazon cannot replace the individual packets, I decided to exchange it. I swapped any leaky packs with the replacement box. With a PERMANENT MARKER, I then circled all of the locations where the packets had holes. This was to show Amazon and to prevent OTHER customers from getting my damaged packs.

Thankfully, Amazon Prime has a good return/exchange program!

I hope this review was helpful to somebody... :-)

These water packets are great but do not stack them together in a bag where you are going to be moving the bag around or carrying because they will puncture each other as the packets are moving around in your bag. The edges of the packets bend and make a point that are just a sharp as a knife. Do not stack these together. other than that they are great!

I am an Amazon power user, and this is the first time I'm writing a negative review. Water arrived today. Pouches say they were made in 2010 (4 years ago), and they expire in 2015. What good does a 5 year shelf life do, if the item is already 4 years old when it arrives? Returning these pronto.

You pay for the convenient packaging really that gives you the ability to have a bit of water with you in small convenient portions. One sachet contains about 125 ml (half a glass), meaning you get approximately 6 glasses or 1.5 quarts of water for a bit below 8 dollars. I think that's a steep price for water and a bit steep for the packaging as well (hence 4 stars, not 5). Also, one person needs about 2 quarts/day (a lot more, like 1 gallon is recommended usually), but that's in normal conditions. Should someone need these in hot summer or in a very dry climate, or was exposed to the elements, this would not be enough even for a single day. However, not enough to fully hydrate somebody does not mean it's not enough for survival. In "good conditions", I can imagine that 0.5 quarts may sustain somebody for a day and 1.5 would be enough for 3 days, though the person would be more or less severely dehydrated depending on conditions. Dehydrated is not dead however, and if I happened to find myself in a situation like that, I'd be extremely happy to have spent 8 bucks on these packets (and possibly kicking myself for not getting a bit more). Personally, I supplement these with another quart of water in a soda bottle in an easily reachable pocket of my bag.
Money-wise, it is much much cheaper to get a few soda bottles and fill them up with tap water and add a few drops of unscented bleach. However it is a lot less of a pain to put many smal sachets in a bag and they seem to be very sturdy and good for many years (unlike the bleach-treated water which you'll have to remember to change regularly).
