Unlike generic emergency kits, the FlexPack Emergency Kit can be easily customized by simply adding modules called FlexPacks. Up to 5 FlexPack Modules fit into the backpack which makes your emergency supplies contained and easy to transport.
The contents of each FlexPack model reflects the needs of a particular age group. Children, adults, senior citizens, and pets, each require different types of emergency supplies, which is why there are 8 different FlexPack models to choose from. Each FlexPack contains the essential supplies for one family member to last for 3 days. Supplies include things like Emergency Food and Water, Emergency Blanket, Light Sticks, N-95 Dust Masks, and other items that are appropriate for that particular family member. For example, a KidPack contains items that are appropriate for a child. Ponchos, Masks, and other items are child size, where as the SeniorPack contains Items more appropriate for a senior citizen. One size does not fit all which makes the concept of FlexPack Modules the best solution for your emergency kit.
To customize a FlexPack Emergency Kit for your family, follow these easy steps as you choose from the options listed above.
To start customizing your kit, select a FlexPack Module for each family member (using the product options listed above). Each family member needs their own personal FlexPack Module. Choose the module for a family member based on their age group…

When you receive your FlexPack Emergency Kit in the mail, you need to personalize it.
First, add the name of a family member to the name card located on the front of each FlexPack Module.
Second, unzip each FlexPack Module and fill-in the emergency information card included with each FlexPack Module.
Next, fill-in the Emergency Contact Wallet Card included with each FlexPack Module and make sure that each family member stores it with them at all times (usually a wallet or purse).
Finally, add personal items to each FlexPack Module. There is a list of recommended items printed on the front of each FlexPack label.
The FlexPack Emergency Kit is designed to hold up to 5 FlexPack Modules, which is about the most an average adult would want to carry on their back (in terms of weight). Larger families may need more than 5 FlexPack Modules. If this is the case, you have two effective options to consider:
1. Purchase stand-alone FlexPack Modules as additional items in your shopping cart. The first 5 modules will fit inside of the backpack, but additional modules are stored outside of the backpack. Since the FlexPack Modules are made of the same ballistic nylon as the backpack, your supplies are protected from the elements. This is more economical, but may not be as practical when you need to transport your emergency supplies.
2. Purchase a second FlexPack Emergency Kit and increase your capacity to 10 FlexPack Modules. You will also get a second set of the standard supplies, which larger families may need anyway. In the event of an emergency, you will have 2 easy to carry backpacks to transport.
