It’s good to be prepped for emergencies, whether that means being equipped for natural disaster or because your car broke down in the middle of a snowstorm. You hopefully have some kind of bug-out bag or survival kit ready to go at a moment’s notice. If you don’t, you get Companion from Rino Ready. It’s an advanced survival system designed for two people, that combines all the knowledge of first responders, survivalists and talented designers into a single, streamlined package.
What does that mean? It means that, in addition to 72 hours’ worth of food and water for two people, the Companion also provides warmth, first aid essentials, light, eye protection, essential tools and even communication devices for you and your partner-in-survival. A few things that jump out to us include the 304 stainless steel water bottle, Paracord 550, knife and fire starter, N95 filtration masks.
And it’s all packed into a rugged, waterproof and fireproof, reflective pack made of 1200D hybrid fabric, with a stiff exoskeleton for support and protection; YKK zippers keep the moisture out while the straps tuck away when you need want to travel light and low-profile.
Inside, every piece of gear and every provision is packaged tightly into tough, modular pouches made of the same durable, waterproof material. Both the interior of the bag and the pouches have hook-and-loop attachments, so you can organize and secure the contents of the bag to your liking. This is great, as is the fact that the bag opens 180-degrees and lays flat for unrestricted access and easy organizing.
Every single part of this system was made with thought and careful design. The food is even 100% nut-free and Non-GMO. Vegan, even – if you’re into that sort of thing.
Right now, you can head on over to Kickstarter and snag the Rino Ready Companion for $199 for just the pack and pouches, but without the 40+ pieces of survival gear or the food. To get that, you’ll need to spend at least $369. Which isn’t a bad deal, considering the many items and tools the Companion comes with.
