ALL survival kits have a 5-year shelf life. However, our 'Ultimate Food Survival Kit' has a 25-year shelf life for food rations.
Each survival kit or go bag is designed to sustain a specific number of adults for a minimum of 3 days (72-hours).
However, some disaster kits are designed to sustain each adult up to 14 days. See the exact specifications of your particular kit.
The 1-person survival backpack kit weighs approx. 9 lbs.
For easier carrying, the contents in all the kits are compact and lightweight.
You should avoid heavy bags and overstuffing with items that are not essential for survival.
Packing only the necessary survival gear, provides extra space for clothing and other personal items.
You may consider the rolling wheel bags if weight is a concern.

Selection of survival kits is your own personal choice and preference. However, below are a few suggestions to consider when making your choice:
- - BACKPACK KITS
1). Good choice if you are able to carry 9 to 11 lbs without significant back discomfort.
2). You will be able to have both hands free and walk upstairs easier.
3). Because they tend to expand, you can get away with over-packing. (Not recommended)
-- WHEEL KITS (Duffle Style)
1). Easy to carry. You can roll or carry as a duffle bag.
2). Great choice if you have medical or physical limitations preventing you from carrying a backpack.
3). Often chosen by a family of 2 or more, especially if you may be traveling with small children.
4). Good if you are carrying heavy or excess contents (Not recommended).
** Note: If possible, It is recommended that all who are capable, get their own separate survival kit, in case of possible separation during a disaster.
Although we anticipate being able to ship international in the near future, currently we are only able to ship within the United States. If you would like to be notified once we start shipping internationally, please add your name and email to our international waiting list.
JW Go Bags and Premade Emergency Kits are intended to help us prepare for that unexpected emergency as we continue to be calm during these unprecedented times (Isaiah 30:15). It's essential that we plan ahead and have our Ready Bag packed and stored near an exit so we can easily grab and go.
