With the onset of the recent bad weather, i realised that i hadn't got much in the way of a winter emergency kit in my car should the worst happen-i certainly hope that i'll never have to use it, but just for peace of mind, it's availible.
very pleased with this kit, with pretty much everything you'll ever need in an emergency, all of which can be packed away in the backpack which includes:
first aid kit
2 foil blankets
2 hand warmer packs- instructions say gives heat for 20 hours
2 glow sticks
emergency food and water
high visibility jacket
wind up torch
a fold up steel shovel-which comes in its own bag
antifreeze screenwash, ice scraper, carplan de-icer spray-it is actually the carplan winter gift pack.
very pleased with Evacu8's service, despite me ordering at the start of the week on the run up to xmas, to avoid the xmas post delays with royal mail, Evacu8 had the item shipped out with UPS, it arrived within 2 days later.

EWith Christmas 2012 coming up, and the snow starting to fall, it's time to be prepared.
Thankfully the emergency equipment such as the basic First Aid kit and foil blankets have not yet been used. The quality of this kit is very nice! The last thing you want is equipment failing. The two glow sticks last for 12 hours each and the instant hand wormers last for 7 hours - according to the packaging.
The bag itself is smaller than the average bag... about the size of a school back fully packed.
The spade is well made - not extremely strong but enough to dig you out with ease.
The torch is brilliant!
Everything else can only really be tested under the right circumstances, although I have confidence they'll work great!
The only small thing I don't like is the Emergency Whistle. It's a little quiet to attract help but a very small piece to pick on.
Overall, this kit will save your life if it came down to it. And possibly even others. Buy looking at the survival equipment, I think it could sustain life for 2-3 days for 2-3 people inside a car. Excellent purchase. Lets hope I don't need it.

This a great compact emergency pack, ideally for keeping in the boot of the car. The bag is fairly small and well packed with room for some additional small items. Couple of words of warning (and hence the four stars not five), the whistle is not particularly good and the folding shovel is not great quality. It's a Silverline shovel which can be bought separately on Amazon and the reviews are not great. It's a bit flimsy and is really a back up only not for regular use. Overall it's decent piece of kit for the back of the car.

Item arrived promptly and in good condition. All items appear to be of good quality and well made - folding spade etc.. I have not had the need to use the kit yet ( thankfully) but feel very confident it will do the job. Well thought out, well made and great value. Well done Evaq8.

Has all the essentials for an emergency situation where you may get stranded in poor weather conditions. Folding spade appears sturdy enough, small first aid kit, water and emergency rations which are self heating and foil blankets to prevent / slow body heat loss. Whistle is rubbish, not worth having in the pack. All in, a good package.

I travel a lot for work and need to be prepared. My emergency kit was way overdue for replacing and this did it in one fell swoop. I transferred a few personal items of choice into the spare pocket and I was ready for anything. Just as well really as I'm looking out at a blizzard at the moment!

Bought this for the car as we travel all over the british isles and can't always rely on british weather it's got everything you need to survived if you get trapped in your car or you have a breakdown . The company dispatched very quickly and it was well packed.
