For many years my emergency kit consisted of a Rubbermaid box with an eclectic mix of half used items. It worked well enough- as long as I didn’t have to carry it and I could scavenge forgotten items from the rest of the house as needed.
But no longer do I have to worry about not being able to carry it, or forgetting something, or not having enough toilet paper- Gorgimi has nearly perfected a line of Go-bags that puts everything you should need to be comfortable for 72 hours into an ingeniously designed dry bag that can be grabbed at a moments notice. It contains everything- Shelter, Water, Food, Bedding, Hygiene, First Aid, Tools and Rescue Aids- everything. And none of the contents are the novelty items that so many companies cram into a cheap daypack and call it a survival kit – this is the real deal. The poncho tarp is the same used by elite backpackers and renown for its durability, there is a real fleece blanket, the food and water require no preparation or utensils and have a five year shelf life, the tools are from a world leader in the industry, the flashlight radio has its own generator so that it never requires batteries (or shaking), and it has enough water to stay comfortable. The contents are organized into modules that make them easy to retrieve and keeps it all organized. The elite nature of the equipment not only makes for more comfortable emergencies, it also keeps the weight way down, coming in at only 25 lbs or so (depending on the model). The dry bag can be carried as a backpack (because of their Sliding Harness technology) or as a duffel, it is waterproof, and the entire package floats. It can’t be beat.
