Everlit Survival offers emergency gear, bags, packs, pandemic supplies, and emergency kits uniquely customized by US military veterans.

Everlit Survival 40-in-1 Kit

The company’s 40-in-1 survival kit prepares you for emergencies and can help you get through a disaster or survival situation safely.

It includes first aid, survival gear, and supplies, and at first glance, it has everything you would need in an emergency.

But with several other survival kits available at the same price, it is vital to learn if the kit is worth the money.

In this review, I will gauge the kit’s quality and analyze the contents to determine just that.

Everlit Survival Kit Review

Design and Durability

The kit is compact, and the insides of the kit have a vinyl coating that makes the bag water-resistant. It is not waterproof – water will seep into the bag if it rains or is left in the water.

The kit has a water drain hole on the bottom, which makes for convenience. You won’t need to dry everything out if the bag gets wet, the water will drain, and the kit will dry by itself.

There is a MOLLE layout in the front of the bag, and the other side of the bag has a detachable Velcro panel, which enables you to stick the kit to the back of your car seat. It makes for easy storage and access.

Its features like these that tell you that US military veterans have designed the kit. Army vehicles have large Velcro panels on the sides that allow you to stick kits like these.

The kit is lightweight at a little over one pound. It is also considerably compact at 7” x 4.5” x 4”, and if you attach it to your bag, you won’t even know its there.

The bag has two main zippered compartments, a front pen holder, and an adjustable phone holder. The phone holder is compatible with most phones on the market, and utilizes the full length of the bag, ensuring that even bigger phones fit inside.

But keep in mind that the bag is only water-resistant – if it rains, your phone will get drenched.

The bag is mostly full, but it does have a little space to fit one or two more items. You will be able to fit your charger in there, that’s for sure.

The kit comes in two colors – black and camo – but I’d have liked a red-colored kit since those are easier to find.

Overall, I’m happy with the 40-in-1 kit’s design, and although it’s not as well arranged as something like the Surviveware Small kit, it does offer a phone compartment and a little extra space, which are things that most other kits don’t provide.


Most gear included in the bag are multi-functional – you rarely get a full-sized tool. But there are things that the Everlit kit does not compromise on.

The tactical knife is heavy and looks sturdy. Closed, it measures 3.5 inches, and the blade is 2.5 inches long, making it long enough to cut most things. You also get a full-sized flint and scraper.

The included flashlight is small but loaded with features. It’s bright and has three modes: High, Low, and Strobe, which is impressive. You can adjust the focal length of the flashlight, which can be very useful in a survival situation.

But the required AA battery is not included, so don’t forget to add one to the kit as soon as you get it.

Other than these tools and the thermal blanket, all other tools in the kit are multi-functional.

The paracord bracelet includes a luminous compass, a two-tune 120dB whistle, a flint fire starter, and a scraper knife. The paracord is a little over ten feet long and can handle a 400lb load with ease.

It also includes a standard saber card, multi-function pliers, and a tactical pen that doubles as a safety glass hammer.

The first aid kit has tons of bandages, first aid prep pads, adhesive dressings, wound pads, Q-tips, and first-aid tape.

I’d choose this kit over a basic first aid kit every time.

Who Is It Best For?

Anybody learning about or already proficient in survival skills will find the 40-in-1 kit handy.

It also makes for a practical gift for loved ones.


Everlit Survival offers a 60-day return policy, and all of their products are covered under a one-year warranty.

Other Kits from The Company

Everlit Survival offers an 80-in-1 survival kit that replaces the knife and paracord bracelet with a multi-functional tactical knife.

The kit also includes glow sticks, and the first aid kit is expanded to include a lot more than just bandages.



What People Are Saying About the Kit

Customers love the kit’s paracord bracelet and report that the knife is sharp enough for practical use when hiking or camping.

The only complaint I noticed was about the lack of AA battery – which is no dealbreaker.

There are no issues with the kit, and everyone from Marine vets to thrill-seekers appreciates the utility of the kit.

FAQs About the Surviveware Small First Aid Kit

Q: Does it come with an instruction manual?

A: No, the kit does not come with an instruction manual.

Q: How much does the kit weigh?

A: The kit is super lightweight, and weighs a little over one pound.

Q: Is the included compass liquid-filled?

A: No, the compass in the kit is not filled with liquid.


The kit’s contents are practical, it includes a phone compartment, and while the bag is not waterproof, the kit more than makes up for it with the excellent first aid kit. I’d choose the Everlit Survival 40-in-1 kit over a basic first aid kit every time I hike.
