Emergency situations are usually resolved in the first 72 hours, but anything can happen in those three days.

That’s why these engineers created the SEVENTY2 — a backpack system that has been certified as the smartest survival kit in the world.

Everything in the package has been designed and curated to withstand any survival situation: the contents contain over 30 tools that are waterproof, reflective, and most importantly, easy to understand. The small backpack, itself, has been engineered to distribute weight efficiently and to be used as a floatation device. The tools include everything from a magnesium fire starter, to a safety whistle, survival knife, reflective duct tape, thermal blanket, and convertible snow shovel and pick-ax.

Though the creators of the system are based in Los Angeles—where earthquakes, fires, and mudslides are a real possibility—the young team behind the Uncharted Supply Company has collectively visited over 100 countries, gathering tons of hands-on experience with sandstorms, hiking, camping, and adventure.

“In our world today, emergencies can strike at any moment and calling 911 and waiting for help may not be enough,” says Dr. Eric Meyer, a mountain climber and survival expert recruited for the backpack’s design team.. “You must be prepared, and being prepared means having ready access to the right gear. With that in mind, we developed the SEVENTY2.”

The company’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign originally sought a minimum of $25,000 to start production and ensure sales in time for the holiday, but 669 dedicated backers ended up pre-ordering the item for $275-$300, or supporting their goal through smaller donations, to raise a whopping of $248,000.

“What can we say, but thank you! For all of your support in our first few days,” exclaimed founder and CEO, Christian Schauf. “We believed this was a product that was needed in the marketplace and our backers reinforced that belief! It’s been amazing watching our goal get funded and beyond and we are grateful!”
