FSD Food Fire & Filter Bucket – 72 Hour Emergency Kit
I recently had the opportunity to review and cook up a tasty meal from the Food Supply Depot 72 Hour Emergency Kit aptly called the FSD Food, Fire and Filter Bucket. Overall I was very impressed! These buckets are available at SurvivalBased.Com at a pretty reasonable price. Not only did the FSD Food Fire, and Filter Bucket have several items in it to help you meet your basic needs in an emergency situation the food also tasted great!
What I love about 72 Hour Emergency Kits like this is that you can purchase them, add in a couple items if you want to customize it to your own situation and needs and then re-pack it and stick it in a closet or where ever and forget about it until you need it! Personally, I would recommend having a few buckets like this on hand, because the likelihood that a major disaster will only last 72 hours is pretty low. Or if you are a DIYer feel free to take a look at this post on how to package up food for Long Term Storage yourself.
Here are a few thoughts about this 72 Hour Emergency Kit. First the food tasted excellent! It also had a good variety of food as well. The folding grill was certainly adequate for short term use, which is what it is intended for. The first aid kit would take care of minor injuries, cuts, scrapes, etc. The multi-tool will work great for food preparation. The water bottle filter seemed to filter water well, however I experienced a leak in the relief value. I also felt like the bottle was a little small. I would have preferred if it was a full liter as opposed to 24 ounces. The fire starter/fuel did an outstanding job starting a fire, however, it didn’t burn long enough or hot enough as a “fuel” to boil the 5 cups of water needed to cook one entree. I ended up having to add some small twigs and sticks in with the second package of fire starter to finish out the meal. Overall, I thought the bucket had everything needed to be able to prepare a few meals in a grid down situation, so it served its purpose well! All in all I give this 72 Hour Kit an 8 out of 10 stars!
