  • UNMATCHED ORGANIZATION Why do survival backpacks out there keep all their supplies in a jumbled mess of disorganization? The Responder Survival Backpack different from any other survival system out there. This emergency bag was designed for optimal organization with personalized pouches and GridNet system. Food, Water, and Personal Items are evenly divided and stored in dedicated pouches for each person. This means quick access to any disaster preparedness supplies in the Responder.

  • TRUSTED BRANDS The safety of your family is of the utmost importance when a natural disaster strikes. A survival kit for families and the gear that comes with it should be made by a brand that lives preparedness. With over 5000 5-Star reviews on our first aid kits and outdoor products, you know that your family's safety is in good hands. We have also partnered with the Lifestraw and SOS Emergency, to provide you with the best water filter, water sachets and food bars on the market

  • THE ESSENTIALS Standard Go Bags for 2 people simply don’t have what it takes to survive for 72 hours. These bags are sloppy, come with a cheap first aid kit, minimal supplies, and low-quality survival gear. The Responder takes preparedness to the next level. Custom engineered from durable tarpaulin material, this emergency kit delivers on all of the essentials: the right amount of water, food, and survival gear to weather Natural Disasters.

  • PACKS A PUNCH This bag isn’t light at 27 pounds for good reason-it’s designed to withstand whatever nature throws at you. That’s because it contains the right amount of food and water and gear for two people for three days. It's better to carry more on day one, so you can survive until day three. The Responder is designed with ergonomic handles and straps to ensure weight is evenly distributed so you can carry it comfortably and concentrate on what matters most, surviving those critical 72hrs.

  • ABOVE AND BEYOND The Responder is the only 72-hour emergency kit that provides you with a dedicated compartment for your laptop and personal documentation, plus a front-zipper-pouch for quick access to personal items. It is important to plan ahead; that’s why the Responder also comes with an emergency guide for your family to complete and have on hand.

Excellent Design

The bag quality itself far exceeds other kits. I would highly recommended to others. My favorite part is the organizing straps.

Hands down THE best…

High quality, well organized, kits I have seen in my 40ish years in various roles. My wife and I even started a ministry with the main focus to educate & equip churches and ministries with a focus on Narcan, AED w/CPR, and Bleeding control. I think I have bought ALL of your gear, And I used in training. On a personal note, I was diagnosed with kidney disease, which progressed rapidly to end stage renal failure, dialysis will keep me going, but I really need someone to donate a kidney, the donor has laparoscopic removal, with minimal down time. I can’t believe I just added to my review, I fully understand if you remove it, I do find it fitting as my wife, my 10 year old son and I are & will remain Survivors! And will give my highest recommendation to you, and your product, your success is in my prayers. Thank-you, Rev Gary A Blank

Amazing investment!

I ordered this after seeing a recommendation from a youtuber I watch (she lives off grid and such). This pack is great. It has so many things that we actually needed on our recent camping trip. We added a few small things, such as a small metal pot, some personal items, and some refillable water bottles. Everything was very organized and there is a lot of space to put whatever you want in the bag without overfilling it. It’s the only survival bag I’ve actually wanted to buy. Usually we make our own. This is definitely an amazing bag and worth every cent. Thank you so much!

Ask a Question
  • When will your 72 hour kits be back in stock?

    They will be back in stock in about two months.

  • What is the weight of the back pack fully loaded with all supplies?

    27 Pounds! It's a lot but we have tons of water in, better more water than less in our opinion and as you go, the pack will get lighter as you consume the water.

  • Do you sell this and/or your other bags just stand alone empty bags? And= Are all of them (including internal bags) waterproof? Or water resistant?

    Currently, we don't sell the bags separately. :) The bag is made of waterproof tarpaulin material while the pouches are water-resistant.


    Hi Kathy,

    Yes, if you order today this will reach you before Christmas :)

  • What are the dimensions of the backpack? To how large and small do the backpack straps adjust? Is there an expiration date on the water and food?

    Hi Wendy.

    The backpack is 20" x 14" x 10". Food and water supplies have a five-year shelf life.

    Yes! Our Survival Backpack is now FSA and HSA eligible!

    Yes, they include two N-95 Masks.
