We developed our Executive 72 Hour Survival Kit to be the best, most portable 72 hour kit we could make yet still made it affordable! Don't let the 'executive' name in the title scare you off thinking it's too expensive. You'll get 'executive' quality and detail at a very attractive price.

Nitro-Pak has been building 72 hour kits for over 2 decades now. We've learned a few things along the ways like what's really needed in your kit and what is just fluff. We realized at the offset that QUALITY COMPONENTS were essential. Our designers scouted the competition. We found that many so call "72 hour kits" were woefully inadequate! Their packs or bags were made so cheaply they wouldn't last 2 days with my 1st grader! Many had surplus items like old lightsticks, woefully lacking in food or water, etc., just to make'm cheap. We knew we could do much better and we did.

"Your slogan, 'Products That Bring Real-Peace-of-Mind & Security' is really true. Your supplies & Executive 72 Hour Kit helped us make it through Hurricane Iniki on Kauai… helping us to safely evacuate… your Solar Dynamo Radio worked great!"

No matter what your budget is or where you purchase your preparedness supplies and 72 Hour Survival Kits, look closely at what you are getting for your money. Do not just look at the price alone, but at the quality of components you are getting… top quality or much less. Remember, what you are really purchasing is a 'Survival Insurance Policy' to protect you and your loved ones. Put together piece by piece yourself, our Executive 72 hour Survival Kit would cost over $185 to assemble.

Here are some things to look closely at when shopping for a good quality 72 Hour Survival Kit:

1. Quality of the Bag:

Most the time the search stops right here. Look closely at the quality of the bag. It should be well constructed, made to take heavy-duty abuse, have easy carrying handles and if a backpack, have padded shoulder straps. Does it have extra room for you to add an old sweatshirt or light jacket? How about extra room to add a pair of old tennis shoes (in an evacuation you can walk or run faster in tennis shoes than dress shoes or heels). Remember, this bag is going to protect your "survival insurance" supplies and it had better be up to the task. It should be able to endure the punishment of bouncing around in the trunk of your car for years.

2. First-Aid Kit:

Look closely here. Most kits simply include a ziplock bag with a few bandaids and antiseptic wipes. Better kits will have a much broader selection of first-aid items and also include a comprehensive first-aid book. First-aid kits can range from the $2 types to the $30+ types. Be sure your kit has a wide range of various first-aid supplies.

3. Food:

Be careful here. Your kit should only have foods specifically made to be non-thirst provoking, provide high calories (for energy), be low in protein (requires less water of digestion), not affected by high heat (think, car trunk in the summer), have a long shelf-life and yet still tastes good. Lifeboat 'emergency food rations' are ideal for 72 hour kits and meet all these requirements like the food bars made by Datrex or Mainstay. We recommend only the 3600 calorie size bars (1200 calories per day for 3 days). Smaller sizes are woefully inadequate. 4. Water: Your kit should include water. Some kits have none. The best way to store water in your kit is using U.S. Coast Guard Approved "Lifeboat" water ration pouches. They have a 5 year shelf-life. At a minimum you should have 3 to 4 pouches (4 oz each) per day per person. No, that is not a lot of water, but remember, weight is always a factor and you may need to hike with your kit for some distance.

5. Flashlight & Radio:

  Here is often where good quality kits differ dramatically from lesser quality ones. Does your kit come with a quality flashlight and include batteries, or is it the $1 store type? Is there a backup light source such as an instant lightstick or long burning candle? Does it include a good quality am/fm radio? A radio should be included so you can hear the latest news reports and updates. It is also a good moral booster. Be sure batteries are included and that you rotate them every couple of years (you might even want to add an additional set for added safety). A windup rechargeable solar/dynamo radio would even be even a better choice. (See Executive Upgrade Kit).

6. Shelter, Heat & Warmth:

Many low cost kits do not include much. Protection from the elements is important. A heavy mil thickness 'tube tent' makes a low cost shelter for 2 people and should be included in your kit (it can also be used as a signaling device). Your kit should also have several items to cover the basics of Heat & Warmth, too, such as a long burning candle with MATCHES (for light & heat), instant pocket hand warmers and a Space® Blanket for each person. As always, remember quality. Most companies will only use low cost inferior knockoffs.

7. Is the Kit Made for 1 or 2 People?

Most preparedness experts recommend having one or multiple kits that protect 2 people each. The reason for that is when disaster strikes, you'll be preparedness for both you and someone else (child, co-worker, etc).

We take pride in every kit we make. Our Executive 72 Hour Survival Kit has been designed to provide maximum protection for you and your loved one when disaster strikes. All the survival basics are covered, including food, water, shelter, first-aid, light, heat, sanitation, communication, and more. Comes packed in a premium quality, heavy-duty nylon backpack so that everything is easily accessible when you need it and has plenty of extra room inside for a light jacket and spare set of comfortable walking shoes.

Over the years we have kept improving this kit. It gets better & better. Our customers have told us that they selected our Executive 72 Hour Survival Kit for its compact size (easily fits in any car or truck), ease of carrying, quality of the components, and very attractive price. Weight was also a major consideration for us when developing this deluxe kit. Not so much for guys, but for women and teen age children. At under 20 lbs., this kit is easily meets this standard. Why not order one for home and work!

Customer Reviews

  1. Great survival kits Review by RW Bumper

    I originally bought one for my jeep in case something went wrong while exploring the wilderness. I have since bought 2 more for our family cars and 1 more for the company truck I drive for earthquake protection. I supplement them with MREs and additional water but they are great all by themselves. I just wish they sold a kit to replace the perishable contents so that I could more easily keep the backpacks up to date. (Posted on 8/19/2013)

  2. Great Kit at a Great Price Review by Sunshine State

    This was my first purchase from Nitro-Pak, and I'm extremely pleased with the service and quality of my order. I've been looking at emergency kits since I moved to Florida (gulp--has it been 7 years already?). Anyway, I've been procrastinating because I couldn't find the perfect kit at what I considered the perfect price.There are many companies that sell them, but they never seemed worth the money they were asking and/or they included a lot of fluff. I'd get confused looking at different websites, but I finally decided Nitro-Pak had the best ones, and I'm really glad I got this one. If you're like me, STOP PUTTING IT OFF and get one.

    If you don't want to spend over $100, get a smaller kit, but just get one to start with and you'll feel so much better. You can stash a kit in your car, in your office, in your home, in your RV, in your boat, etc. Think of it this way: You spend thousands of dollars on insurance every year on calamities you never use. Why not invest a few dollars on a tangible kit you can keep that will give you peace of mind?

    Thanks, Nitro-Pak, for your products and your educational articles. (Posted on 8/27/2012)

  3. One of the best kits available Review by Jimbo

    I've looked at a lot of 72 hour kits and this one offers the best combination of quality, completeness, and value that I've found.

    On one hand you might find it hard to spend a lot of money on something you may rarely if ever use, but on the other you know your life may depend on it if you ever do have to use it.

    This kit is pretty complete, the quality if it's contents is generally very high, and it's reasonably priced which makes it a real winner.

    I choose to switch out the flashlight and knife for real Swiss Army products, replace the radio with an Eaton FR160, and add a few items like a roll of duct tape, a lighter, and a few other things and still end up with an excellent kit at a reasonable price.

    Putting the individual pieces together yourself would cost you a lot more. Even if you choose to change out a few pieces and augment the kit a bit the kit offers great value.

  4. Great Deal! Review by Splash

    I love the 2 person-72 hr. Executive Nitro-Pak I just received. The back pack is very well made with tons of pockets and designed beautifully.
    All the survival gear-food-etc; inside is just exactly as described on the web page.
    I did order additional water & snacks and they fit right in the already full Pak quite nicely. I encouraged my friends to check out all the Nitro-Pak survival supplies since I was well pleased with my order! (Posted on 9/11/2011)

  5. Great Deal! Review by Splash

    I got my Nitro-Pak: Executive 72 hour. 2 persons kit and love it. I did add some other items-additional water & snacks-but over all it was well worth the money.
    I also encouraged all my friends to check out the Nitro-Pak web store for their survival supplies. (Posted on 9/11/2011)

  6. I feel prepared now! Review by Safety First

    I wanted to be able to efficiently take care of myself and my partner in the aftermath of a disaster. Although I will store up other things as well, if I must leave the house in a hurry, it's great to have everything needed in one well-designed bag. The contents are all high quality as well. (Posted on 6/6/2011)

  7. OK Review by Hootie

    I would keep the back pack "BLACK" so when your in the element and hiding from looters trying to get your supplies they wont find you as fast. I would rather to have the back pack camoflage. (Posted on 4/19/2011)
