Our 72 Hour Hurricane Kit has everything you need to help prepare you for a hurricane in your area. Included in the Hurricane Survival Kit is Food, Water, Radios, First-aid Kit, Candles, Blankets, and much more! Looking at what F.E.M.A. recommends for a Get ready kit, we added several top quality items to our 72 hour kit to help you out in times of an emergency or unplanned evacuation when basic services are not available, like no drinking water, no shelter, no food in the stores. This Hurricane Kit has every thing you need to last 2-3 days on your own.
For the Hurricane Kit we have included the following:

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 band aids 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.
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 for digestion), not affected by high heat (think car trunk in the summer), have a long shelf-life and yet still taste 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.
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 (or a means to collect and store more). 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 morale 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 be an even better choice, like the one that comes with this 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, 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 prepared 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! Weight: 20 lbs.

I was stunned. No form, letter, or refusal to take back my item, just kindness and understanding...
"No, you don't understand. I broke it. It was my fault." The customer service woman said "Our Products don’t break..."
In a day where phrases like "100% guaranteed" and "hassle-free returns" don't mean much, I have to share my story.
