With all that’s happened in the past year, it just goes to show that you have to expect the unexpected. It makes sense to put together an emergency kit just in case anything goes wrong. After all, we’re not just battling a global pandemic—we’re also experiencing all sorts of disasters, including wildfires, floods, extreme temperatures, and more. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so you have to ensure that you have everything you need to keep afloat.
Whether you’re building your own emergency kit or looking into buying a pre-made one, here are some kits and tools that can help get you through anything:
You can’t expect to have access to phones in the event of an emergency, so having a radio in tow is an absolute must. This multi-function radio catches the NOAA weather broadcast 24 hours a day, and thanks to the built-in hand crank and solar power, you never have to worry about recharging. It also has an LED flashlight and onboard battery, making it an ideal addition to your emergency arsenal. For a limited time, it’s on sale for $28.99.
Beaming a powerful 800-lumen output, this duo of military-grade tactical flashlights can be seen for miles around when turned on. They’re housed in a weatherproof, indestructible, and ultra-lightweight titanium alloy shell, making them incredibly durable. They have built-in lighting modes and an adjustable chassis that lets you switch between wider flood light or focused light. And, similar to what the Special Forces uses, it has a tactical head that can be used to shatter glass and apply defensive force. Get it on sale for $17.99.
Aside from your emergency bag at home, you’ll also need some sort of emergency kit in your car, too, just in case. This one has five functions—a LED flashlight, SOS light, emergency seatbelt cutter, glass breaker, and 2,200mAh portable power bank for your automotive needs. When you have this within reach, you can go on the road with no worries. For a limited time, it’s on sale for $19.99.
Perfect for storage in your home or office, this mini kit has everything one person needs to survive for three days. A KN95 respirator mask is included for when the air quality is poor, a mylar space blanket for if it gets chilly, a poncho for when it rains, and an LED flashlight, glowstick, and candles for when the power goes out. It also includes a first-aid kit for when someone is injured, a high-decibel whistle for signaling others, as well as three days’ worth of food and water. It has a 5-year shelf life, too, so you can store it and forget it. Grab it on sale for $89.99.
Now, if you want to accommodate someone else, this emergency kit is similar to the GoBox, except that it is stocked with the necessary supplies for two people. Aside from food and water, you also get air respirator masks, a NOAA radio, an LED flashlight, a power bank, hygiene essentials, a first aid kit, and more. What’s more, it all comes in a heavy-duty metal frame bag, which is pretty enough that you won’t need to hide it in the closet. Right now, it’s on sale for $449.
The perfect grab-and-go kit, the Survival Bag contains all you need to conquer anything. It’s equipped with vital and essential tools and pieces of equipment that you can use in any indoor or outdoor environment, like a flashlight, knife, and pliers. Of course, it also has essential items and first aid products that you can use to take on any emergency or catastrophe, including thermal blankets, bandages, wound dressing, prep pads, and more. For a limited time, you can get it for $119.99.

This portable scraper features high strength and low-temperature resistance to eliminate snow and thick ice without damaging the glass. It has a non-slip handle design for better control, and the heating function makes the scraping job exponentially easier. Get it on sale for $23.99.
