What is the shelf-life of the food and water?

All our Food and water have up to a 5-year shelf life (delivered within 1-6 months after the manufacturing date). The food & water will need to be replenished after the expiration date. We have our own food & water refill kits, so it saves you the convenience of having to find the items yourselves!

Food and Water Refill Kit

What is the weight & dimensions of the backpack?

Each bag is different. It depends how many people you are preparing for, which Emergency Kit you pick, and whether you choose 1-4 Person. You can find the weight, dimensions, and specs of each product iteration on its product page.

What is the difference between the red deluxe kit and black deluxe kit?

The difference is that specifications between both backpacks in the kits are slightly different. The radios also come in the colours of red for the Red Deluxe Kit and the colour of black for the Black Deluxe kit. Our black backpack has some extra smaller storage components within the bag as the red backpack does not have as many.

Can the kit be customized to meet specific needs or requirements?

Yes, our emergency kits can be customized to meet your specific needs. Please contact us directly, and we'll work with you to create a personalized kit tailored to your requirements

Are there any warranty or satisfaction guarantee policies in place?

We want you to be happy with our products. That’s why we offer a 30-DAY 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. If anything you purchase from us fails to meet your expectations, please call us. We’ll make it right. We’re confident you won’t find a better deal anywhere else. But if you find the same product anywhere else for less within 30 days of your purchase, let us know. We’ll match the price.

How many days of supplies does the kit provide?

The kit is designed to provide supplies for a range of 3 to 5 days. This duration is based on the general guideline for emergency preparedness, considering the average time it might take for help or resources to arrive during common disaster scenarios. While individual needs may vary, the kit is carefully curated to include essentials like food, water, shelter, first aid, and tools to sustain you and your family during this critical window. Keep in mind that it's essential to periodically check and replenish items to ensure you're adequately prepared for unexpected situations.

What are the major differences between the essential and deluxe kit?

The biggest difference between the two kits is that the Deluxe Kit has more shelter items included like the "Emergency Tube Tent" and "Sleeping Bag" while the Essential only has an "Extra Large Thermal Blanket" & the “Hooded Poncho”. There are of course additional items that are also added to the Deluxe Kits which Essential Kits does not have.

Please see below for the additional items included in the Deluxe Kit:

Crusader One Radio (upgraded from the Crusader Mini), Sleeping Bag, Waterproof Matches, Multi-Function Army Knife, 50ft Nylon Utility Cord, Leather Palm Working Gloves, Water Purification Tablets, & Three Wick Emergency Candles

How can we store the kit properly to maintain its integrity over time?

In short, somewhere quickly accessible, centrally located, and close to the door. Emergency agencies generally recommend under the bed (where you spend a third of each day), by the door, or in your garage. Experts also recommend having one in the trunk of your car, as well as one at work.

Are the food rations gluten-free?

The standard food ration bars in our Emergency Kits are all nut-free and vegetarian friendly but are not gluten free. If you have a gluten allergy, please reach out to us and we'll happily work with you to make sure you've got a solution.

Is there room to add other items to the bag?

Our bags have room to add personal items as well. Many people add clothes, a pair of shoes, copies of documents, cash, an extra blanket, meaningful items, or anything they want to have ready-to-go. It also means there is room for other important supplies you might want to add.

Can I see a full list of what is in each bag or kit?

Can I use 72hours kits for camping and outdoor recreational activities?

Yes, our 72hours kits can be used for camping and outdoor recreational activities. These kits typically include essentials like food, water, shelter, and tools, which can certainly serve the immediate needs of campers or outdoor enthusiasts. However, it's important to note that while they are suitable for short-term use, they are primarily designed for emergency preparedness in unforeseen situations. If you plan to use our kits for extended camping trips, it's a good idea to supplement them with additional camping-specific gear and supplies to ensure a more comfortable and enjoyable experience in the great outdoors.
