Wow, a pouch of water, a cheap first aid kit, a poncho, a radio and a light. I think the only ones I can see buying these are the hipster yuppie types living in the Pearl district. They're biggest concern will be looking good after the big one, only realizing a few hours later they don't have the things they really need.
Let 'em have them.
Trendy in a metrosexual sort of way.
I'm kind of surprised that it doesn't have a portable espresso maker in the kit.
I would get one of these instead....
Ok, one hour after the disaster and I've used up my water and my plastic bag poncho has blown away. The little plastic handle is broken off my power generator and I'm sitting on a curb crying. I'm from Portland, come and save me.
Ahhh, you guys' glass is only half full. I see the beginnings of a sweet little bazooka....
This is one of those things where "design" has really trumped most of the other considerations. The one thing humanity has pretty much figured out is if you need to carry some junk, the best way to do that is in a bag. Unless that tube also doubles as a stool, a ladder, or a weapon, the bag is going to be the superior option.
The title should read "This-simple-metal-tube-is-packed-full-of-emergency-fail"
I see what you did there..
LOL...Or maybe under the bridge on Saturdays...you crack me up!
Terrorists with stainless steel cylinders, oh my!
Oh yeah, I can picture that being mistaken for an IED!
JIC is nice but I don't like the pistol grip end.
Separate names with a comma.
