The backpacks are sturdy, but I don't know ow waterproof. The zippers were a little difficult. The contents are very good and I think this provides a good. though minimal, amount of supplies for 5 days. There is room to add other things, like clothes change. Easily accessible and portable. Contents should be kept in 55 degree climate I think if I read it right, so putting it in a car trunk for a long time should probably be discouraged. I would thin storing it in the body of a car would be alright. Price was good.
I read other reviews before I ordered these. I usually take a large in vinyl gloves and some people said these run a little small. I didn't find this to be the case. I ordered large and really they are a little too big. If I order them again, I would order medium. I have used synthetic latex until I became allergic to them and then switched to vinyl and I have used gloves for many, many years almost 8 hours a day until I retired. So, I feel like almost an expert in this. I would say if you have quite feminine hands and medium length fingers that are slender, order a medium.
The product is as promised in a sturdy backpack that also has plenty of room to add additional personal items. I bought one for my house and liked it so much a few days later I ordered one for my car.
Warning, both times the box it came in looked like it have been crushed in shipping, but all of the contents were perfectly fine as they were packaged very well.
There are new vinyl stretch gloves that are a great invention and I usually buy those on Overstock at a great price and quality. However these were on sale a flash deal greatly discounted so I gave them a try. I am A RN so I have worn a lot of gloves on my hands. These gloves are great BEST vinyl gloves I have worn.
I am a caregiver for my Mother and usually have to pay for supplies out of pocket. We struggle to get the supplies necessary to care for mother at home. We kept Mom from being institutionalized and the insurance company's made promises but it is a struggle to get any supplies from the insurance company's Mom has. Most older type of gloves & some newer stretch vinyl gloves are tight and fit low on wrist to short with irregular gloves in the box. So far perfect! The sale is over but Overstock will certainly have more sales and great products to offer!
These were purchased as employee gifts. They were well received. Everything on the list was in the backpacks. Delivery was on time and nothing was damaged. Since I have not used any of the items included in the kit, I cannot comment on the quality of the products. However, the backpack seems sturdy enough for the purpose. It is pretty well filled with the items included yet there is still room to add some your own items if you want to do so as there are outside pockets available. Now that I have one in the back of my car, my kids are jealous. I may purchase more as Christmas gifts.
Product was exactly what I had ordered. I have used this product before and its a great hand sanitizer. Overstock had the best price that I could find! It was shipped and received within a week. Will continue to look on Overstock.com first for this product in the future.
The Power Tank is a great option for any astronomer who wants to take their scope further away from their vehicle than their cord can stretch. It also prevents you from depleting your car battery and possibly getting stuck somewhere in the middle of the night with a dead battery. It would probably work well for car camping for the same reason.
I live in a forest and can't observe at home, so the power tank lets me get to places away from the lights of cars and buildings that my car can't get to.
There's multiple voltage power outlets depending on what your device uses in addition to the two cigarette lighter outputs. The power input has multiple plug adapters to work in various countries across the world and tucks away into a compartment. The main light is great for setting up a campsite or something, but the red light is better for dark acclimation for astronomers. The radio isn't exactly spectacular, but who's really buying this thing for the on-board radio. There's even jumper cables to start a dead car.
If you use a more energy-hungry telescope (or other device) the 17-amp will definitely last much longer than the smaller version. At any rate, it's a good value and because its so portable, you'll probably get a lot of use out of it. Like any battery, you should keep the unit charged as instructed in the directions to ensure long battery life.
I bought this for my fiance who wanted to start his own "Emergency Prepping Room" - the reason I chose this product is because of the long 20-year shelf life. Haven't had to use it yet luckily, but we're glad we have it just in case and will definitely be buying more.
Love the kit! Comes with lots of great items that need to be in any survival kit! Good starter kit that you can personalize to fit your own needs. The bag it comes in is a little cheap, IMO. Zippers are a bit difficult to work with, but all in all, I am happy with the purchase!
