Survival Gear Better Business Bureau Reliability Seal

Best Survival Gear Stores

If you plan on traversing rough mountain terrain on your next vacation, or want to prepare for a natural disaster, finding the right survival equipment can be a big challenge.

Earthquakes, tornadoes, ice storms, and hurricanes can leave you in the dark and cause you to leave your home, with nowhere to go. Or, you could be stuck at your residence with little or no access to food, water, and electricity. Similarly, roughing it in the mountains can be a lot of fun - but having the proper emergency supplies is key to preparing for any situation that could occur. It could be life or death.

3 stars
1 800 Prepare


While the 1 800 Prepare website does have a good selection of emergency preparedness supplies, it does not have any food supplies that we were looking for. That along with less than impressive shipping and return policies bumped the ranking of this company to only average.

3 stars
Survival Food


Survival Food provides a limited line of survival products. The food selection on this website is comparable to those rated higher but lacks the selection of other emergency preparedness/survival products that we were looking for. Shipping was expensive and the return policy wasn't as customer friendly as we would like. Read More... Visit

2 stars
Quake Kare


Quake Kare misses the mark in selection and shipping rates. If you are looking for survival gear products we recommend you shop a much higher ranked company. Read More... Visit
