A fanny pack for disaster survival is not a fashion statement

What are survival or disaster fanny packs and what good are they? While they are definitely not for long-term survival, they could be invaluable in a situation where a sudden and unexpected disaster might occur. They also offer the advantage of leaving the hands free.

Note: "Hands Free" is the beauty of fanny packs. In an emergency situation, where one may be climbing or hiking, having your hands free is very important.

The hands-free carrying option of the fanny pack enables first responders to use both hands in assisting those who are victims of the current emergency.

Note: If you're an employer looking for great employee gifts, give the survival fanny pack. You'll be a true hero for thinking of the welfare of your people!
