Covers 2 Persons for 72 Hours.
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.
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.
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.

I’ve been looking for a better kit for the price and I can’t find one. This kit covers all of the essentials: food, water, shelter, communication, and has handy tools you might need in an emergency. The supplies are high quality. It comes in a study bag. One small drawback is the quality of the padded shoulder straps. I wish they were wider and thicker. Other than that, I would recommend this kit to anyone wanting a go-bag for their car, place of work, or home. Be sure to add a few personal clothing item and you are set. (Posted on 1/20/2014)
I got this on sale a few years back for around $80. I got two of them, one being for my wife. For the price this was a great buy. I personally want a bigger pack for me and my wife so we can carry stuff for our small kids so the bag itself isn't what we are looking for but if I were in a 3-day issue where I just had to grab my bag and run (knowing it was a short time) and I didn't have to maybe be on foot, then this is a great bag. This is a pretty good starter kit for a serious prepper, gives you the basics and then you can add stuff on from there. (Posted on 8/28/2013)
I was anxious to get and review the contents of this product. It had all of the essential contents and fairly good quality. I preferred to substitute the battery-powered flash light for crank, stainless steel water/filter set instead of plastic, and add some stuff that was not included like a sewing kit and freeze-dried meals (instead of their power bars). What really disappointed me was the blazing orange trim and the stenciling on the outside ("Emergency Survival Pak") begging attention when, in a real situation, drawing attention to yourself is the last thing you may want. The backpack is actually a Transworld/Swinstart, Inc., Model 5936 which is available in many color less obvious. I suggest comparing the entire product (contents and backpack) with similar quality products. (Posted on 8/10/2013)
This is a great kit for a starter kit especially when you add the tactical response kit with it. I have added other things to it like finger nail clipper, tin cup, ammo, clothing (2 changes packed in vacuum food saver bags) and more. I will be adding in more food bars because 2 (400 calories each) is not enough for one person a day. The reason this gets a 4 from me is because the radio did not work. I will be contacting Nitro to get this rectified ASAP. I consider this a vital piece of equipment for a bug out bag. (Posted on 7/26/2013)
