A. Readywise Emergency Food Supply Ready Grab Bag is chock-full of freeze-dried food. The bag contains 60 servings of long-term meals, each in its own convenient, eat-in pouch—just add water. Best of all, as a means of maximizing its 25-year shelf life and avoiding waste, each Metallyte pouch contains four servings. Tasty selections include:  Savory Stroganoff, Gluten-Free Potatoes and Chicken-Flavored Pot Pie, Creamy Pasta & Vegetables, Cheesy Macaroni,  and Maple Multi-Grain Cereal as well as Crunchy Granola and Brown Sugar. MSRP: $99.99;

B. Keep your essential electronics charged after the power goes out with the Bud K 10,000 mAh Solar Charger and Power Bank With Flashlight. The solar charger and power bank has a 10,000 mAh capacity, thanks to a Lithium-ion battery that can also be charged via a standard power plug. Electronics can be plugged into either the micro-USB input, or one of two USB outputs. A built-in LED panel on the back features a bright flashlight with strobe and SOS modes. There’s even a compass. MSRP: $39.99; 

C. Keep your MSR magazines handy with MTM Case-Gard’s Tactical Magazine Can 15. Each heavy-duty polymer container features 15 pre-cut holes in the padded-foam interior that store magazines oriented in an upright position, keeping them easily accessible. MSRP: $30;

D. Available in First Aid Red or Tactical Black, the DTL GEAR Bleeding Control Kit (IFAK) contains lifesaving essentials for anyone to bring blood loss under control in an emergency. It is offered in three levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced (the latter two with upgraded components) allowing you to customize the kit to your individual needs. MSRP: $79.95 (Basic);

E. The ability to emit a white- or red-colored beam of light makes the Coast EAL (Emergency Area Lantern) 13 versatile gear. Powered by only three AA batteries, it is capable of 330 lumens of light for 4 hours and 45 minutes at the highest power setting or 120 hours of runtime on reduced-brightness low. Multi-mode technology enables easy toggling between low and high settings. MSRP: $28;
