Table of Contents
When disaster strikes, usually it is without warning and in this situation the last thing you want to do is be running around the house looking for that survival kit. With this Two person emergency disaster kit by Emergency Zone, you want to know that it will be ready at any time to save your life.
This 12 pound kit has the essentials to assist two survivors for around 36 hours (add more MREs if required) whether it be in the wilderness or on the side of a long windy road. The simple black, unmarked backpack sits comfortably on your back so you can just grab and go when the SHTF.
Who Should Buy This Kit?
This kit is perfect to store in your car for those long commutes or anyone who only frequents the wilderness once every couple of months. You can add any item to the kit as it has load of room.
Organised Pack & Plenty of Room to Add More
Worst thing that could happen when you receive your survival kit is that your happy with the contents but you can’t fit anymore in. Not so with this urban survival bug out bag, we have multiple customer reviews commenting on the extra space left in the bag.
Erica Guthrie also commented on how “everything comes in separate little baggies…grouped together” for ease of access. With 8 access points and plenty of space left over for extra rations or extra fire producing gear like waterproof matches or a camping stove.
Simple Yet Effective Misc Pack
Why we love this pack is due to the miscellaneous gear included, a dynamo radio/flashlight & mobile phone charger (adaptor included for 10 phones), 10 yards of duct tape (life saver), a multi whistle, 50 feet of rope. Working gloves with leather palms, a deck of cards, a survival multi knife, can opener, survival guide and a pencil.
All these simple tools in everyday life are taken for granted. Simple, image how annoyed you would be if you packed 30 cans of food for that disaster situation and forgot a can opener. Even duct tape – Check out the multiple ways of using it for survival situations. http://offgridsurvival.com/duct-tape/

Customer Reviews and Scores
There aren’t too many reviews for this bag but the average is quite high with 4 stars.
Yumiko (May 2014) said that it “was a well thought out bag” adding a few extras for the food portions and so he gave it a 5.
M.Blank (Jan 2014) bought two bags for her children and their families for Christmas. Summing up the positive and negatives she said she would have given them a 5 (she gave a 4) if the bag was a bit larger in size but was happy with the weight.
And finally Kylo (June 2014) said “This is perfect! Everything i need in one bag! I am in the military so used a different ruck pack for the items, but the bag doesn’t seem too durable” giving a 5 which is interesting.
Cons for the Product
Overall the reviews don’t show up any issues other than the bag having enough room for all the gear but the quality of the bag was a bit low. Easy fix for this, check out the condor assault pack. 515 people cant be wrong about the quality of this backpack. Check out the review here…
