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.

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
