I decided I wanted a little extra insurance for my survival kits so I elected to use plastic storage containers. I expect my supplies will need to be viable for as many as 15 years so I wanted to make sure that they were protected from water and bugs. Another aspect I considered when selecting storage containers for my survival kits were how easily transportable they might be. While I expect to stay at our current location in the event of an emergency, I do want to the option of easily packing and moving to another location and loading and transporting the storage containers in my survival kits will be very important.

Summary of Storage Containers in Survival Kits
My storage containers need to be large enough to easily hold plenty of items from my survival kit list but small enough to easily transport if needed. It also help if they are see through to make selection of items for use very easy. Some survival kit items, like survival seeds in my emergency survival kit, come with their own containers – I see this as a definite advantage when selecting items for my survival kits.
