Survival Kit Backpack

Previously, I’d only purchased a food kit from foodinsurance.com. I liked what I received and decided to give the entire kit a try.  There are a ton of low cost emergency survival kits available on the market and this is not one of them.  These units are somewhat pricey but definitely pack a whallop.  They are critical items on my survival gear list and a top survival kit priority.

But it also has some extra items. In this picture we have a water purification bottle, steel cup and food heating unit to round out your survival kit.  There are other water purification systems available and they should definitely be a part of your 1 week emergency survival gear list.

It also contained some additional handy items that I will detail in my next post.

Storing Survival Kit Food

I don’t completely trust the packaging and want to make sure that while building my survival kit, my investment lasts, so I decided to put each of the food packages in a plastic tub. These 18 gallon plastic tubs are wonderful. They are small enough to be portable in case I need to get and move them quickly for an earthquake survival kit situation. They are also waterproof and will protect their contents in the event of a hurricane survival kit need.

Summary of Storing Survival Kit Food

I continued to be surprised at how useful these plastic tubs are. They provide a great ability to organize the contents of my survival kit list. They hold an astounding amount of survival kit supplies, are small enough that they can’t be loaded to weigh too much and they are waterproof.

Update 6/12

These tubs hold up so well for food storage in case of an emergency or other need for a survival kit!  I think these start off as a good first purchase for anyone building a survival kit since they hold so much, keep it safe and in shape, and are so easily transported.  To check out all of the different things you may want to keep in these tubs in addition to using them as food storage, see the posts on survival kit building.
