1 Person Survival Kits
At Living Rational we offer a wide selection of Survival Kits that have been built with one person in mind. Each of these kits have been designed with the oversight of experts in the preparedness industry and include all of the items needed to sustain life without basic amenities. When you encounter an emergency such as a natural disaster, necessities like food, clean water and shelter are often unavailable. Our 1 Person Survival Kits include all of the basic supplies that you will need to make it through an emergency as comfortably as possible.
Our 1 Person Survival Kits are sold based on the amount of supplies they contain, which will last anywhere from 3 days to two weeks or longer. The amount of time a kit is meant for will depend on the amount of supplies it contains, but we have a wide range of options for everyone. The contents of each kit is clearly outlined on each product page, so you can see exactly what you are getting before ordering.
A preparedness kit is more or less a safety line that you can throw to yourself. Our kits are extremely versatile and will allow you to survive a variety of emergencies until help arrives. Being prepared is not just about stocking up on food in case that huge earthquake hits. It is far more practical than that.
Being prepared applies to many different aspects of life, ranging from going hiking and being prepared for becoming trapped by a snowstorm or other unexpected occurrences to preparing for a car engine failure on the way home and having to spend the night out on the road. There are a number of everyday occurrences that can happen to anyone at anytime and being prepared is not as radical an idea as many people see it. Being prepared for those situations can heavily increase your chances of surviving them.
Covering Your Basic Needs
Preparedness kits cover basic needs like food, water, shelter, and medical aid. These items are light enough to carry yet strong enough to help you get through the situation until help arrives. Our Food Kits, for instance, contain quality dehydrated food that you prepare just by adding water. And because even in urban environments you might be without clean water, preparedness kits contain water purification tablets, filters, or packets of emergency water.
Emergency shelter supplies are also packaged inside most kits and include products that emit heat without an open flame, such as heat blankets and thermal packs that provide heat for up to 20 hours. Most of our Personal Survival Kits will also contain First Aid Supplies that contain basic to advanced items, including medication, bandages, splints, and more, depending on the kit. Below we have outlined all of the major categories of items that are commonly found inside each of our kits.
What’s in Our 1 Person Survival Kits
Personal survival kits extend a person’s basic living requirements, such as eating, drinking, and staying warm. They are designed to keep you alive either until help arrives or until the danger you face comes to an end. Most 1 Person Survival Kits contain food, water pouches, water purification tablets, special clothing, and items that you use for shelter all in one place. These kits cater either to a single person, such as a hunter or hiker, or to families and groups.
Some personal survival kits feature tools for specific types of natural disasters, such as our Earthquake Emergency Kit. Some are also designed for everyday adventures such as hiking, camping, and exploring. You can even find special types of kits that specifically address the unique needs of children and pets. Most of our survival kits contain enough food and equipment to sustain a single person over a certain period. This time period typically ranges from 72 hours to two weeks. These packs are designed to be flexible, so they can be stored in places where they are convenient to use, and can last up to 20 years or longer given you replace all of the perishable items when they expire.
Survival Food and Drinking Water
Food and water are two basic requirements for survival. Without food and water, we do not have the strength and energy needed to survive. Each personal survival kit comes with either water purification tablets, emergency water packets, or a water filter. Kits contain food composed of quality ingredients that will give you enough energy to help you survive. These food and water supplies can sustain one human life for 72 hours or up to two weeks, depending on the kit and its contents, but there are some that last up to a year.
Food stores from Living Rational usually last around 20 years depending on the product, how it is packaged and who makes it. We even offer specific options such as our Gluten-Free Survival Food that cater to those with dietary restrictions. But how do you know how much food you need to survive? To answer this question, consider your calorie intake needs and choose the amount of food you need based on your activities. If you are preparing for a natural disaster, plan on three meals per day per person, with adults requiring about 2,000 calories a day. You can add extra food packs to customize any of our personal survival kits based on your personal needs.
Communication during an emergency is also vital for survival. Radios, such as the 4-in-1 emergency radio, help keep you informed. When lost in the wilderness, you can receive updates about search and rescue efforts, storm progression, and other emergencies that might impact how soon help might arrive. Emergency glow sticks and survival whistles can help alert rescuers to your location and are also included in most basic kits.
Clothing, Warmth & Shelter
Body warmth plays a huge role in your ability to survive an emergency, as loss of body heat can be deadly. Depending on the personal survival kit you choose, you might have a basic tube tent, emergency blankets, emergency survival sleeping bags, and ponchos to keep you warm and dry and help you conserve energy. Body packets that offer 16 hours of chemical heat to help stave off the cold are available in some kits. All of these items are small, flat, and expandable, and pack easily into your gear bag.
Survival tools are highly functional, multi-use, lightweight items that can help you survive on your own. Depending on the survival kit you purchase, you will find a multi-purpose tool, a three-function hatchet, 50 feet of paracord, a flat pry bar, and a multifunction shovel. You can use these to prepare shelter, as first-aid tools, and for self-defense. These tools compress into small units, are light-weight, and easily fit into backpacks without bogging you down while trekking through the mountains. Simple and smart designs help you remain fully prepared for many unexpected situations.
Personal Hygiene Kits & First Aid Supplies
Personal hygiene kits include a toothbrush, a tube of toothpaste, and nine packets for cleaning your hands and body plus one face and body scrub kit. First aid supplies offer a vast array of options, including ibuprofen, acetaminophen, antibiotic ointment, insect sting kits, and even sunscreen. These products allow you to feel your best and remain healthy so you can focus your efforts on survival.
The variety of items depends on the kit you choose, but basic survival kits include both first aid and hygiene supplies. Whether you were stung by a wasp or have a headache, these items can help you overcome a dire situation. The basic kit lasts for three days and offers aid for non-life-threatening injuries and wounds until you are able to find help.
