How long do the contents of the kits last?

The food rations and water are recommended to be used in 5 years.  Hand warmers and water purification powder should be replaced after about 3 years, they are not unusable but may be less effective.  

Do you offer discounts?

We have sale items at different times throughout the year.  Subscribe to our email list to find out when items go on sale.  We send emails infrequently and never send "spam".

Is there any extra space in the backpack kits with all the items packed?

Are the backpacks waterproof?

There is some extra space inside our emergency backpack kits.  Enough room for a few extra personal items or important documents/prescriptions.

The backpacks are water-resistant but not waterproof. However, the Stealth Bug-out Bag has a waterproof cover rolled up in a pocket. In rain, you pull out the waterproof cover and fit tightly over the backpack; effectively protecting the pack from heavy rain.  Not meant to be submerged in water.
