Online Survival Shopping

Something bad could happen. Something bad will probably happen before something really good happens. It's easy to prepare for the good times: stock up on Pringles and Gatorade, then kick back and wait for the good times to roll. On the other hand, staying prepared for badness involves ordering copious amounts of survival gear from reputable sources. We're here to help.

Look no further for online sources of survival equipment, food, and shelter. Remain ready to survive, regardless of what might happen just over the horizon. Evil lurks at virtually every turn. Keep your larder stocked with emergency food, keep your fallout shelter packed with clean water, and keep your lead-acid batteries fully charged at all times. While you're waiting for the world to collapse upon itself, browse our list of quality products guaranteed to enhance survival possibilities. Order up some gear before the infrastructure dissolves and your credit card doesn't work any more.

United Cutlery Bush Master Survival Knife

A sharpened sliver of steel with a nonslip handle ranks as one of the top 100 items of survival gear. A simple trip to the mailbox these days poses significant risk unless one wields such gear. United Cutlery may be well known for steak knives, but lions, tigers, and bears will also stand aside when they see you striding through the shrubbery clutching a Bush Master Survival Knife.

Expect no quarter from nature, and give none yourself. Stow one of these cutting devices in every nook of your Humvee. You don't have to be a Boy Scout to be this well prepared.

Para-Cord Survival Bracelet "Desert Camo" 9 Inch

Surviving in style requires clothing composed of paracord. Wresting a feeble existence from from a burned out inner city bereft of wireless Internet is difficult enough without improperly adorned forearms. Simply clip a few of these bracelets around your wrists for a post-apocalyptic fashion statement that will turn the heads of even the most jaded zombies. No one will turn you away from their hastily built shelter when the sun goes down and roving bands of opportunists deploy to search for caches of gasoline.

If things get really bad really fast, simply unravel the paracord bracelet to obtain a big long string of paracord, then run away from whatever is bothering you at the time.

      This is incredibly stupid and in very poor taste. Many honest people are getting ready for what happen very soon - just look around at the signs. You have insulted all the hard-working preppers who just want to provide for their families.

      Nicomp: These purchases are all necessary. But as the group's designated water filter coordinator, I plan to save money by not including the filter system and instead sticking with the distinct flavor of socks-filtered water. The group will thank me when I pass out all the paracord bracelets that I can buy instead!

      Thank you, and voted up and everything else,

      The most important part of survival is preparing to survive. Where will you meet your children and spouse if cell phones don't work and you can't get back to your house? If you and your family can't answer that question, you are not prepared. Looking for a family member will be some of the longest hours you will ever spend. Get perpared!
