Brownells Releases Emergency And Survival Pandemic Kits

From the same gun-stuff supplier that gave us the Zombie Elimination Crew...

Brownells Releases Emergency And Survival Pandemic Kits


Brownells now offers two Emergency & Survival Gear Essentials Kits specifically designed for pandemic preparedness.

Both the Pandemic Kit and the Ultimate Pandemic Kit contain filter masks, nitrile gloves, first-aid kits and hygiene supplies in an organizer bag with an ESG hook-and-loop patch for instant identification.

In addition to protective gear for the user, the Pandemic Kit also contains waterproof NDUR Safety Matches for easily starting a fire to boil water. The kit retails for $54.99.

The Ultimate Pandemic Kit has a Zippo Emergency Fire Starter along with a JetBoil Zip a self-contained camp stove designed to quickly boil water - and a can of fuel. The kit retails for $119.99.

"It just pays to be prepared," said Matt Buckingham, President/COO of Brownells. "You never know when a widespread disease outbreak could strike. Our kits are designed to help meet some basic needs for protection against pathogens and the very important ability to sterilize gear and equipment."

These two kits are the latest in the Emergency & Survival Gear preparedness kit line. All of Brownells ESG gear kits and products can be viewed by visiting Brownells.com/ESG.

Is it good stuff or is it crap?  I'm no expert but it looks overpriced for what you get.

I'm no expert either but I can see that it is nothing like the people on tv ebola coverage are wearing.  Some handy wipes and dust masks are a long way from full body suits and air tanks.  The masks look better than what all the asians wear in the city, though.

the important thing with the masks is the rating. The cheap box of masks you can get from your local Walgreens or Walmart, aren't meant to protect you. They're meant more for protecting everyone else from you by catching large particulates from your nose and mouth which decreases the amount of pathogens that get into the environment.

For filters - a 0.22 micron filter is typically sufficient for sterilization.

N95 mask info from CDC

Info on Ammex black nitrile exam gloves


You could probably build a better kit for the same price if you do your research and find the components and you could certainly build a much better kit if you have money to spend.  This is probably a pretty good kit for someone who wants something quick and pre-made and it probably beats having nothing.  The problem would be if someone gets this and thinks they have this
