All of our kits come with enough food and water for 72 hours (following coast guard recommendations for usage of water – instructions are on the water packs). In addition, our kits come with potable aqua tabs and Nalgene water bottles, providing a means to acquire an additional 6 gallons of safe drinking water.
The Food Rations and Water Packs have a 5 Year Best By Date. We cycle our inventory every few months so your kit will have the freshest food and water packs available. The only other item with a best by date is the medicine in the first aid kit. It is recommended that the Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, Acetaminophen, and Aspirin, and the Antihistamine are replenished every three years.
