This is the pack I personally use and the only one I endorse. I have two in my house… One in my car… And my wife has one in her car.

Buying these items on your own would mean spending hours running around town or visiting multiple websites.
Plus, putting this together on your own would cost well over $100. (Before I started typing this I was reading a magazine where a similar pack sells for $129.95 but the Super Deluxe Survival Pack sells for only $79.95 (plus $7.95 shipping)
