Bug-Out Bags Made Basic: Tedderock Premade Survival Kits

Why not have an expert pack your emergency kit for you?

If the COVID-19 pandemic taught America anything, it's that disasters happen and that, sometimes, the unprecedented unexpectedly gets a precedent. We may not always be lucky enough to "shelter in place," and sometimes we won't get much warning that it's time to seek safety elsewhere. That's the idea behind Tedderock's Complete Survival Kits, which are pre-made and pre-packed go-bags with everything you might need to get through 72 hours' worth of emergency.

Why would you want a pre-made survival kit when there's a whole cottage industry devoted to the art of the go-bag? For starters, expertise. According to Tedderock's site, "You don't have to be an expert to protect your family. Our experts packed everything for you." If you're bristling a bit at the notion that you'd need an expert, consider the last time you went on vacation and realized you'd packed all the wrong stuff. In an emergency, that's not a problem you can fix with a quick trip to the local drugstore.

Then there's the question of time and money. Creating a plan for your bug-out bag, deciding what to put in it, and then spending hours or days buying and assembling the various bits and bobs ... it's a massive time-sink. What's more, if you're not familiar with what you do and do not really need, you'll wind up paying much more than you have to.

These Complete Survival Kits come in two basic flavors: two-person and four-person, which mainly affects the quantities of items involved. They both offer a five-year shelf life, and have enough food, water and survival equipment to get you and your family to safety. Tedderock.com
