From Survival Resources:
The Survival Kit Pouch™ got its start as a custom project for a client, who couldn't find a survival kit that they were interested in. We explained that we were designing a non-expiring survival kit, with the following self-imposed prerequisites. They were:
1. The Survival Kit had to contain high quality items.
2. The kit must contain more protection/shelter items than the usual small emergency blanket.
3. It had to be a non-expiring module (even if this required leaving out water purification,
4. The container had to be weatherproof, waterproof, and had to float.
5. The container must be clear so the contents could be seen when trying to extract an item.
6. It had to be reasonably pliable (some of the kits we had seen that were vacuum sealed
The client said, "If you can build it, we will buy it." We did, they did, and it has been so successful that we are now offering it to everyone.
The survival kit is packaged in an extremely robust 5.2 mil. clear pouch, so you can see the items you are looking for, without having to dig around in a dark pouch or bag, or unpacking the whole kit. The pouch is completely sealed when you get it so the kit is weatherproof, waterproof, and floats. In order to access the pouch the first time, the top portion, above the zip closure is torn off. If the top is still intact, you know for certain the pouch has never been opened. The zip closure remains in place after opening, so the pouch can be resealed. Even the vinyl label was custom designed for the kit, being made to our specifications using a permanent adhesive.
