Is This the Ultimate Survival Backpack?

This waterproof bug-out bag comes filled with a full survival kit for emergencies.

By: Kyle Frost + Save to a List

If you grew up in California, you might remember putting together earthquake kits every year in elementary school. And if you're like me, you probably haven't thought very hard about emergency preparedness since then (that earthquake is going to come one day, San Francisco).

Luckily for us, Uncharted Supply Co. has built the the Seventy2™ Survival System. This self-contained kit, designed by first responders, doctors, special forces operators, and mountain guides, contains 35 top quality tools and instructions you need to survive in a hurricane, earthquake, fire, or any emergency situation.

The bag is designed to keep you alive for the critical first 72 hours in which most emergency situations occur. All the gear is organized and labeled for ease of access and use. If you know what you're doing, you could probably design a slightly more complete, lighter weight kit for yourself. But if you're like the rest of us, it's a fantastic bag to own, stow away, and be able to easily grab when that unlikely emergency happens.
