SHTF Gear Links
I’ve added many items in my personal bugout bag provisions for me and my family, however, sometimes a simple, ready to go, ready made solution can be the right choice for some people. This is where the 4 person survival kit comes into play.
Situations where you may want a simple, self contained, bag included solution for bugging in or bugging out have this survival kit in mind. Let’s say you are in your car, RV or other transportation where you may be away from your main stash of survival gear.
In this case the 4 person survival kit can be easily stashed in a car trunk, in a truck cargo storage area, or RV under storage bays.
These little kits can be a life saver, offering many of the essentials needed to get to where you ultimately need to be, providing food, water, first aid, tools and other essentials. For these reasons, the 4 person kit for survival is perfect and I recommend one for the:
- Each member of the family’s car
- The office
- An RV or vacationing vehicle
- Work truck or vehicle
- Vacation or secondary house
- On the go, stored in a backpack
I ordered this 4 person kit to try it out and test the quality of the items. I was pleased with everything on the whole! Firstly, it arrived fast to my ship address – great for people that want the items now to stock it in time.
And secondly, the items were all of very usable quality, not stuff that would break upon using them like so much cheap quality stuff available today at low prices.
The array of product items in the kit was diverse and really a great selection where you feel that the decisions made on what to stock in this survival kit were made with some thought and care.
Of course, the quality is not the highest, they would suffice to work in a pinch for any prepper looking for a quick solution to have the essentials for themselves or perhaps for a friend or family member.
Items include diverse and well thought out items such as:
- Emergency water pouches
- Emergency food rations
- Gas shutoff key
- Emergency pry bar tool
- Hand crank radio
- Fire starter kit
- Personal hygiene kit
- Mylar sleeping blankets
- Body warmers
- Tissues and toilet paper
- First aid kits
- Can opener and other kitchen utensils
- Misc plastic bags
- Knife all purpose
- Waterproof matches
- …and much more!
I would recommend this kit for anyone looking to supplement their SHTF plan easily, provide additional rations and supplies easily in a self contained bag and survival kit for a family of four. Great item to stash in your trunk or truck bed and overall a great value!

A quick overview of the hybrid capabilities of Perigee Powers 201 portable solar/wind kit. This is just one of the many possible configurations for any of the Perigee Power kits.
UPDATE: As of September 27 2012 we are building the 201 Expeditionary with a pure sine inverter as the default AC power source. We have had much success with the modified sine version but to better facilitate a broader range of electronics we felt this was the best solution.
It also relieves our customers the burden of having to verify with the manufacturer of their electronics for MSW compatibility.
The 101 Basic Kit is still available with a modified sine wave with an optional upgrade.
These kits and others like it, can offer a great backup power source to your small scale power needs. It can be upgraded and scaled up as well, but it may be easier to just choose a bigger system out of the gate.
This is perfect to charge batteries, power communications, small LED lights and similar types of power needs. Shtf power
