EVERLIT Earthquake Survival Kit Product Review

The EVERLIT Earthquake Survival Kit is designed to cater for two people for up to 72-hours. As it is a tactical backpack, it is built to be taken at a minute’s notice and is suitable for outdoor survival.

That means this Everlit kit comes with a whole host of features that include more than just food.

Your survival needs are covered with this useful kit, as it includes a flashlight, thermal blanket, and a first-aid kit. The bag itself is sturdy and comes with padded straps on the shoulders and hips, for extra comfort when you are on the go.

The food and water in this kit should last two adults for 72-hours. It includes 24 125ml packs of emergency drinking water, and two packs of food bars, that equate to 3600 calories each. While this may not sound like much, 3600 calories should be enough to keep you going, despite your increased movement.

The food bars have a shelf life of 5 years, so they are not the most suitable if you want long-term storage. This kit is more appropriate for last-minute disasters where you need to leave as soon as possible, rather than more anticipated incidents such as a power failure.

It is also worth mentioning that the food is US Coast Guard approved, which can reassure you that it should be able to suffice during a disaster.

However, while this tactical backpack is convenient and offers a lot of useful features, the food bars feel more like basic rations, rather than tasty food to keep you feeling satisfied. It is worth considering the full intention of this kit. The food is not here with taste and enjoyment in mind, but rather to keep you alive, which is, of course, the most important thing.

If you are looking to stock up on food for an extended emergency, this bag may not be the most sensible choice, as the food only provides basic nutrients to keep you alive in the short-term. This is also clear by its 5-year shelf life. However, for last-minute survival expeditions, where you are anticipating around 72 hours of survival, then you could always pack your own snacks that would last long enough.
