Why is it a good deal?

You can't put a price on safety, but the fact that this already reasonably priced kit contains over 200 pieces and is marked down to just $36 is pretty hard to beat. We've barely seen it drop any lower than that, and if you plan on going camping or taking road trips this fall, this travel essential will more than pay for itself when it comes to having peace of mind.

Why do I need this?

Developed by U.S. military veterans and field tested by former Army leader, the Everlit Survival First Aid Kit's aforementioned 250 pieces all come perfectly packed in a water-resistant nylon bag with additional pockets to hold your own, non-emergency belongings. And weighing in at just two pounds, it couldn't be more portable.

Included in the package are multiple types of bandages, a relief pad, CPR mask, scissors, burn medicine, gloves, tweezers and more. An additional survival emergency kit comes with a disposable poncho, pocket knife, fire starter, saber card, flashlight, two glow sticks that stay lit for 12 hours and more. In short, if you need to bandage it, cut it, illuminate it or warm it, you'll find what you need in this kit! Having it on hand in your car or even your garage is a no-brainer, whether you're an intrepid adventurer or just a conscientious homebody.

What reviewers say

Over 11,000 Amazon customers swear by this thing. "Great emergency kit at an amazing price!" raved one shopper. "This kit is very ideal as a carry-on for backpacking, and having one at home or in the car will come in handy during urgent situations. Aside from the variety of tools included in the kit, the quality of the tools and items are great as well. I personally like the flashlight very much, since you can adjust the radius of the light beam."

Another reported: "When I received the bag and realized how compact this is, I was thrilled. I was afraid I'd be hauling two luggy backpacks around, and this is perfect. My husband was surprised to see how much there was in the bag. It's perfect for little campouts."

"I’ve bought several compact first aid kits over the years. One thing they all had in common was they were compact, but once you opened them up and pulled anything out, it was impossible to put it back together," shared a final fan. "Well this kit stands out from the rest ... it is packed so well, that you can take everything out, inspect or use, and once done pack it all back in and it’s just as compact as it came. The tools, bandages, etc. look and feel of great quality. ... If I were to nitpick, the only issue would be the flashlight doesn’t come with a battery, so I’d suggest putting a battery in it before tossing this handy kit wherever you plan to place it."
