Everyone is scrambling to buy all the necessary items in attempts to prepare for a ‘lockdown’, a viral outbreak, and maybe even zombies if we’ve been watching a little too much Netflix.
While most people are compiling their own stockpile filled with canned goods, MREs, and other food items that could last one or maybe two years maximum, very few outlets/suppliers have any sort of pre-made survival kit. If you’re looking for something that has a grab-and-go factor, that you can literally store away with an incredible shelf life for that worst case scenario, that option may have just popped up.
A team called ‘Outbreak Provisions‘ created a possible solution to that ‘worse case’ that we all have thought about at one time or another. It’s called a ‘2 Person Survival Kit’ and comes pre-packed (assembled in U.S.A.) with enough supplies for two people to survive on for around 72 hours or more.
Essentially, this is perfect for the ‘drop everything and go’ scenario; the kit has an amazing shelf-life of five years, which lasts far beyond any emergency food you may have been Googling.
Of course, you can add your own items, but what you see above is all included, with enough nutrition for two adults to survive for at least three days. And yes, we are picturing the scenario too.
This kit is stocked with all your survival essentials; you’ll basically only need to bring a toothbrush.
First and perhaps most importantly is the first-aid kit, because you actually want to ensure your survival. Something you may not recognize is the ‘mylar blanket‘ – more affectionately known as an Astronaut or Space Blanket – is a thin, light-weight and very shiny/futuristic looking blanket used by astronauts in space meant to minimize the amount of heat loss from a person’s body.
In line with the ‘keeping you alive’ theme, an emergency poncho to keep you dry and a survival whistle, which comes with a flint starter to start fires, as well as a signal mirror. Water-proof matches are included for especially harsh conditions, and a hand-rechargeable flashlight means you won’t need batteries nor an outlet to see your way around.
The above items are specifically helpful if you’re lost or stranded, or if you’re emergency situation completely follows the plot of the show Lost.
In terms of the aforementioned nutrition, neatly packed on your behalf are 12, four-ounce water pouches, with a five-year shelf life, along with another dozen 400-calorie food bars; all U.S. Coast Guard approved.
If you’re running out of water, you can use one of the 20 purification tablets good for one liter of water each. You can do this in the accompanying hydration bag.
All of these items (along with sanitary wipes and a radio so you can keep in ‘the know’), are essential when we’re in our most vulnerable scenarios.
In case you need to get away in a hurry or are trapped inside, keep one or even two of the survival kits nearby. With two, you and a partner can survive for almost an entire week without any additional supplies. The best part about these packs is they can sit virtually or literally untouched for up to five years for whenever they are needed.
