The Best Survival Kits on the Market
These 5 kits represent the best survival kits
on the market. Each one is prefabricated, so
you don’t have to worry about putting it
together yourself, has most (if not all) of the
things you’ll need to get by for a couple
days, and has quality components. There’s
no half-baked gear in here.
If you’re interested in putting together your
own survival kit, you can check out our bug
out bag guide for ideas on how to get ideas on how to do it.

#1 Premium Family Emergency Survival Bag/Kit

Premium Family Emergency Survival Kit

Quality of Contents

Versatility
1/8

8.0 /10

Overall Value
8.5 /10

Pros
Most components are from respected brand name companies.
Can actually keep a family of four going for 72 hours.
Useful out of the box without any real need to add anything to it.

Cons
Weak first aid kit
Check the Price on Amazon
The following is included in the kit: 1 backpack, 24 Mountain House servings, 48 Packets of
Datrex water (6 liters), 1 Sawyer Squeeze, 8 Cyalume SnapLights, 2 LED lanterns, 2
flashlights, 1 First Aid Kit, 4 emergency blankets, 2 bath wipes, 1 portable stove, 4 bowls and
utensils, 1 MoraKniv knife, 1 Ferrocerium rod, 4 InstaFire tinder and 4 whistles.

Pros:
The Premium Family Emergency Survival Kit offers plenty of name brand items inside and
actually can provide for four family members, unlike a lot of kits that claim they can feed a
certain number of people but really don’t come close.

Cons:
The first aid kit in the Premium Family Emergency Survival Kit suffers from a lack of a
tourniquet and any serious bandages. Add a Combat Application Tourniquet and a couple Ever
Ready Battle Dressings and you’ll be good to go for any bug out situation or temporary natural
disaster.

Pros
3/8

Best overall value of the group.
Has a water filter included.

Cons
Limited first-aid kit
Doesn't include much food or water.
Check the Price on Amazon
The following is included in the kit: 1 LifeStraw, 32 servings of gourmet entrees, 5 water
pouches (about 22 ozs), portable stove, 24 fuel tablets, stainless steel cup, squeeze flashlight,
5 in 1 survival whistle, 42 piece first aid & hygiene kit that contains 37 piece bandage kit, n95
dust mask, pocket tissues, wet naps, and waste bag, waterproof matches, mylar blanket,
emergency poncho, and playing cards. A 8.5” survival knife with nylon sheath, survival kit &
compass, a key chain paracord kit (with 10 feet 550 cord, alcohol pad, fire starter, tinder, foil,
knife blade, sewing needle, 32.8 ft fishing line, 2 floats, 2 swivels, 2 safety pins, 2 weights, 6.5
ft iron wire), 11 in 1 card size survival tool (can opener, knife edge, screwdriver, ruler, bottle
opener, 4 position wrench, saw blade, wrench), a signal mirror, wire saw, 8″ full tang knife with
belt sheath & magnesium fire starter, 10.5″ axe with paracord handle, emergency tent, ceramic
knife sharpener, and e-tool.

Pros:
The Wise Company 5 Day Emergency Bug Out Bag is a full-fledged bug out bag that goes a
different route than the Premium Family Emergency Survival Kit. Rather than include a lot of
food and water, it has a limited amount of food and water but provides a way to procure more.
It’s the best value of the survival kits represented here. If you want to make sure you’re
covered in an emergency, but don’t want to spend a ton on a kit, this is a great choice.

Cons:
The first aid kit will need some love to be fully capable.
Choosing to go with less food and water, and adding more tools is probably not the best choice
for most people looking to make it a couple days if things go bad.

Pair Utility Gloves, Duct Tape, 2 Dust Masks, 4 Extra AAA Batteries, Waterproof Matches,

Interested in a smaller kit? The GetReadyNow Personal Car Emergency Kit is the glove box
sized version of this kit.

Pros:
The GetReadyNow 2+ Person Deluxe Car Emergency Kit is one of the best car emergency
kits on the market. You’ll definitely appreciate the quality when you see it in person.
5/8

This kit is the most versatile of our line up. Packed in a heavy duty dry bag, you can toss this
just about anywhere and know that you’ll have an emergency kit available at a moment’s
notice.
It would be perfect for a boat or to have on hand in a hunting cabin.

Cons:
The lack of food and water makes this less of an all-arounder than our first two kits. The good
thing is it’s easy to get more food and a LifeStraw to go with it.

Versatility
8.0 /10

Overall Value
8.0 /10

Pros
Great base for a shelter in place kit.
Ideal for people that intend to shelter in place.

Cons
Weak first aid kit
Not made with portability in mind.
Limited food and water
6/8

Check the Price on Amazon
The following is included in the kit: Honey Bucket with lid, 4 2400 calorie food bars, 4 solar
blankets, 24 pouches of water, 4 dust masks, 4 ponchos, 12 pack of liners, 6 wet naps, 12
hour light stick, T-5 chemical toilet disinfectant, 1 roll 10 yards of duct tape, gas/water shut off
tool, 15″ pry bar, 54 piece first aid kit, dynamo flashlight/radio, 1 pair leather palm gloves, utility
knife, emergency whistle, water purification tablets, waterproof matches.

Pros:
The Mayday Earthquake Kit Deluxe is a great emergency kit to put in your basement or the
bedroom closet. The whole kit comes packed in a 5-gallon bucket that doubles as a chemical
toilet.
If you add some plastic sheeting this kit would make a great shelter in place kit.

Cons:
The only food any water contained in the kit is emergency rations and water pouches so you’ll
want to add to it.
As it’s made for surviving an earthquake, it’s the least portable of the kits in our roundup.

#5 Limitless Equipment MARK 1 Survival Kit

Limitless Equipment MARK 1 Survival Kit

Quality of Contents

Versatility

Overall Value
8.5 /10

7/8

Pros
Small enough to go everywhere with you.
Each item is well thought out to have multiple uses.
Price

Cons
The small size requires compromises.
Check the Price on Amazon
The following is included in the kit: Metal container, 1 Emergency Whistle and fire striker, 1
Water resistant red LED, 2 Mini Light sticks, 1 Liquid Filled compass, 2m reflective TACTIGLOW Firecord, 1 Wire steel saw, 1 Sheet waterproof paper, 1 Pencil, 1m copper snare wire,
1 Sewing kit, 2 safety pins, 1 #10 Scalpel, 2 Ranger bands, 1 Water carrier, 1 Water filter kit,
Tinder extender in vial, First Aid kit, Fishing Kit, 1 Tampon, 1 30 cm square tin foil.

Pros:
The Limitless Equipment MARK 1 Survival Kit is the smallest kit in our lineup, but that doesn’t
mean that it isn’t a full-fledged survival kit in its own right. Each piece of the kit is thought out to
fill multiple roles.
The least expensive kit by far.

Cons:
Being so small means it had to make a lot of compromises to fit everything in the case.

Conclusion
These kits fill different roles but each is the best in its class. I’m sure you’ve noticed the two
drawbacks of purchasing a pre-made emergency kit, the first aid kits are all underwhelming
and you end up paying a small premium to get a complete kit.
As long as you’re willing to overlook those shortfalls, all of these survival kits will treat you well.
