4 Person Perfect Survival Features
To review this bug out bag, it is well thought out and seems to have everything you are most likely to need. Naturally, this pack isn’t going to get you through a true doomsday event (nuclear war) but that is a whole different situation.
- 4 Person 72 hours
- weights 32 pounds
- 2 water supplies
- weather protection
- sleeping bags,ponchos, tent
Bag Style and Use
The bag for all of your survival food, water and other supplies is a red duffel bag. Would much prefer the color of the bag to be dark so it’s not screaming, “hey look at me, I have food and water!” Most customers are not bothered by the 32 pound weight and even are adding more to the bag. Remember this bug out bag is a 4 person unit so it is naturally going to be heavier than the other bag out bags reviewed.
For the ladies this would be harder to carry than a backpack, but your husband or partner may do the carrying. People who purchased this kit say that the bag handles all the components advertised and it is complete.
You don’t have to be a “prepper” to see the value of this kit. If you were ever in scouting, boy or girl, you know what it means to be prepared and this is one answer to being instantly prepared. Make sure you store it where it is easily accessible but not out in direct view of the public.
Water and Food
This bag has 48 pouches of Datrex Water and 40 water purification tablets that will purify 1 liter of water per tablet. Remembering how important our water supply is, this bag offers twice the amount of water as leading suppliers and each pouch has a 5 year shelf life.
When you need to purify water with the tablets provided, there is a 2.5 gallon water bag in the kit to accomplish that task. The bag can lay flat in the kit and does not take up much space.
The food bars have a total of 9600 calories. This doesn’t seem like a lot of calories for 4 people so this would be a bug out bag to add more protein or fruit bars to.
Like the bars or not, they will sustain life and give you the energy needed to travel. If they ever come out with a ribeye you just add water to, I will be the first one to try them out.
You have the ability to start a fire, boil water, and take care of first aid needs with ease. Customers are most satisfied with the multiple forms of fire starting which are, a box of 50 water proof matches, a fire starter and a flint starter. Along with the previous mentioned, comes sufficient shavings to start hundreds of fires.
The four sleeping bags are Mylar sleeping bags and are said to be higher quality than space blankets. It has four adult ponchos with hoods and two, 2 person tube tents.
There are body warmers that last for 16-20 hours and a little portable stove with fuel tablets. You also get survival candles and 4 12 hour glow sticks. With this bug out bag, everyone has a place to sleep and stay dry.
Customers who have made this purchase are content in the fact that what the company advertised, is exactly what they received. Some were disappointed in the the quality of some of the parts but their satisfaction in the completeness of the kit surpassed that observation.
Most people think about putting a bag together but never get it done. One customer thought he could put together a better bag but said, ” let’s face facts, I’ll never do it”. If you purchase this bag you will be ready for anything that comes your way the minute the bag arrives.
This bug out bag is so complete that you will have very little time invested in completing your task of having your family prepared to bug out if a disaster hits. For the price and the number of contents in this bag, you can’t go wrong.
This is a great start to a bug out bag, but it has little, if any really great survival gear. It does have a multi-tool but that won’t get some wood cut for the fire. I’m looking again at the Ultimate Arms Gear bug out bags and the entire package they provide.
