Emergency Supplies

When it comes to emergency supplies, there are two main ways to store them: in a box or in a bag. Both have their pros and cons, which we will discuss in this article.Boxes are more organised and can be easier to carry around, while bags can be more versatile and take up less space. So, which is the better option for you?

Emergency Kit Box

Let's start with boxes. One of the main advantages of having your emergency supplies in a box is that it can be more organised. This can be helpful if you need to find something quickly in an emergency situation.

Depending on the size, boxes may be more difficult to carry around, as their shapes can be quite bulky. Another downside of boxes is that they can be difficult to pack and unpack. Additionally, they often take up more space than bags.

Emergency kit bags

Now let's look at emergency bags. Bags are often more versatile than boxes, as they can be easily picked up and put on your back. They also tend to take up less space than boxes.

One potential downside of bags is that they can be less organised than boxes. This can make it difficult to find something in an emergency situation.

Another consideration is what types of emergency situations you're planning for. For example, in times of high water level or flooding, boxes might let in water and ruin your kit, whereas a waterproof backpack will protect all of the products inside.

So which is the better option for you?

It really depends on your needs and preferences. If you need a more organised system, then a box might be the better option for you. However, if you need a more versatile and space-saving system that you can quickly gran and go, then a bag might be the better option for you.

At Prepa, we've done our best to take the positives of both options, which is a waterproof backpack that is really well organised so that you can find what you're looking for quickly.
