Redford’s Complete Earthquake Bag: Best for Survival

Despite the name, the full Earthquake Bag is ideal for any evacuation emergency, be it an earthquake or a fire. Along with a well-stocked first-aid kit, this kit also includes food, water and shelter, with food bars, water purification tablets and a tube tent. It has safety glasses to protect your eyes from smoke, N95 dust masks (N95 means that they avoid 95% of the particles), a whistle and 50 feet of nylon rope that can be used as a strap for a pet or to tie additional supplies.

We like the useful information booklet with a checklist of suggested additional items to add to the bag, such as extra clothes and prescription medications. The bag itself has a lot of additional loops on the front so you can add your own equipment.


  • Water purification tablets
  • Tube tent
  • Food Bars 
  • Eye and airway protection
  • Rope 
  • Checklist


  • Expensive Package

Survival Prep Warehouse 4-Person Survival Deluxe Kit: Best for Families

This evacuation kit is similar to the complete earthquake exchange. But it only has a regular crank radio (no phone charger), and the 2,400-calorie food bars are not as robust as the 3,600 calories in the other bag. Fortunately, the Survival Kit for 4 people includes some additional elements that kept it in our best evaluations, such as a gas shut-off key, a can opener and a deck of cards. We like that the kit travel bag has nothing written, so you can fly under the radar in case of evacuation without the risk of being a target of theft. 


  • Water purification tablets 
  • Gas shutoff wrench 
  • 2 Rechargeable flashlight 
  • Can Opener 
  • Label-free bag
  • Deck of Cards 


  • Less food option than other kits 

Relief Pod International Emergency Survival Kit: Best design

If you like “a place for everything and everything in its place”, then the Relief Pod emergency survival kit will make your annoying brain happy. The best-selling feature of this kit is its unique design: it unzips and hangs from a built-in hook as a travel toilet kit, with separate compartments, clear and colour-coded for first aid, tools, food and water, and sanitation. It does not contain any food or water, but that only means that you can pack the foods that you really like, instead of a cardboard-type food bar designed only for the consumption of calories.

The main weakness of the Relief Pod kit is the very bad first aid kit, which contains only a few bandages and pads of alcohol preparation stuffed in a bag. But the bag includes a handy four-compartment pillbox for you to add your own medications, and the variety of tools and supplies in the rest of the kit make up for the lack of first aid.


  • Well Organized Design 
  • Sanitation Supplies 
  • Gel Pen 
  • Face mask 
  • Less Expensive 


  • Skimpy First Aid Kit
  • No option of food or water

Ready America backpack for 2 people, 3 days

As one of the most popular evacuation kits on the market, we wanted to include the Ready America backpack on our list, but it’s pretty basic when it comes to survival kits. It will take care of your basic needs for a few days: food, water and shelter, but it has no tools, communication radio or flashlight. The packable food and water supply gives you a good starting point when you start building your own

Aootek Emergency Survival Kit

If you are someone who does not like to be without a backup plan no matter where you are, the Aootek emergency survival kit may be right for you. Approximately the size of a softball, it is small enough to fit in almost any bag or purse, even in large pockets. It is full of useful tools, such as a lighter, a knife, a flashlight, a fishing tackle, a first aid kit and more. The reflective and illuminated slap bracelet is ideal to be seen, whether you’re evacuating from a fire with smoke or just riding a bike at nightfall. This kit has no food, water or shelter, but it is a great addition to any emergency kit you have.
