Pros: Overall Quality, Packaging, Ease of Use
Excellent, best store bought survival kit I have seen by far
Just received this yesterday so haven't used it yet but closely examined the contents and every component is excellent, there is absolutely zero of the junk you find in most other store bought survival kits. I have always built my own kits in the past from what I considered the best components because every pre-built kit I did buy or saw on the market had quite frankly a lot of junk components, this kit's components either meets or exceeds what I personally would include. Great well thought out well organized bag, the ESEE 4 fixed blade knife is top notch ESEE, so is the carabiner. The Victorinox knife, the Suunto compass, the cook pot down to all the all the small items are top gear for what they are. Love the small signaling lights, great touch and can't wait to try them out tonight. Only things I'll add will be a handheld flashlight, a tourniquet, and a metal water bottle with holder. Then add food and water and you'd be set to survive most situations. The bag would also hold a very small amount of food in the way of Energy bars, jerky, etc. The only con I see is there is only a bag for water containment, but then again easy enough to attach a water bottle holder to this bag via the molle on the sides. One of these will be going in each of my cars permanently for whatever emergency comes up. Absolutely great, well made, compact, well thought out survival kit. Bought the orange one for my wife's car and OD for mine. Great job ESEE!!!!!!!
