For over a year I was manufacturing all of the vacuum packed survival kits for the U.S. Air Force. Now that the contract is complete I have 4 items left in inventory.

Each of these products is made in one size.

If you buy all sales are final, no returns are accepted.

We also found when doing inventory 15 of the DG-1 backpacks. Regular price $225.00 / sale price $150.00.

Capacity is approx. 60L.

Dimensions of the pack are:
55cm (height) x 32cm (width) x 20cm (depth)
or 21.6in x 12.6in x 7.9in

See link on specials page to read all the spec’s.


The biggest question asked of me is where to get non fire retardant treated tents? I do not know at this time but if you go into a retail store that sells backpacking tents ask them. If enough people do this the store owners will go to the suppliers and ask them for non-fire retardant treated tents. You might also bring copies of the articles I have reprinted and show it to them so they understand why you want non-fire retardant treated tents.

Also keep in mind that nylon is the only material that should be used for tents since it is inherently not a material that supports combustion like polyester fiber fabrics.

I do believe the industry will finally wake up and realize they should have made the change starting in 2016 when they knew there was a serious problem. Unfortunately they are slow to change because they are slow learners.
