Life Gear has emergency and safety products that everyone could use in their life. With a selection of items that will provide security, safety, and emergency preparedness, having some of these will ensure you will be ready for the next major crisis, and be able to be a leader when everyone needs you to be. With September being Emergency Preparedness Month, I am more than ready for most things to come my way, are you?
Whether you are on your own, or trying to protect your family or friends, having some of the items I had a chance to review below will give you the piece of mind you need to feel ready for what life gives you next.
The first thing I wanted to talk about was the Wings of Life Pack, a 72 Hour grab and go bag for 1 person. For starters, I love the name “Wings of Life” because in a true emergency or disaster this will be an essential part of your survival if you were to have one. The pack is designed with functionality, and stabilization in mind. Imagine if you had car troubles in the middle of nowhere and were waiting for others to come help you, or if the power went out and you had no clean water, maybe a disaster like an earthquake, or hurricane can be survived if you had a pack like this with you for yourself, and those that you love.

With the included accessories like the signaling mirror and whistle, and the red emergency flashing light that is built into the bag, helping people locate you and your family will be easier if the need for that ever arrived.
I truly appreciate the time and effort put into the design of this bag, and with all the supplies and products in it to ensure your safety and survival, Life Gear really steps up to prepare us for the unknown with a quality backpack like this one.
Life Gear doesn’t stop at bags/backpacks like this one either, they have a large selection of accessory items like flashlights, led glow sticks, headlamps, and a bright red signaling flashlight that would be great to keep in the car or at home for when you need it. They also offer additional types of emergency bags and basic boxes that you can use or re-stock the Wings of Life Bag reviewed above.
From being a veteran of the U.S. Army, and a retired 24 year Paramedic, I think for me it is imperative to be ready for what ever life wants to throw your way. The question you have to ask yourself is, “Am I ready for an emergency/disaster if one was to occur?”. If you can’t say “yes” then you might want to consider something like this for you, or your family. So are you ready for anything?
