No one knows when emergencies are going to happen. The best way to ease your fears and be ready if disaster strikes is to keep an emergency kit at home. That’s why we put up this checklist of some of the most important things you should keep stocked in your backpack from Build A Kit from

Many of the items you'll find on the list are items that you should take when you go camping or backpacking so you know that our camp buyers picked packable, high-quality supplies. That also means that while you’re prepping for your summer camp trips, you can also prepare your emergency kit! 

 While you might not find everything on this list at Sports Basement (we don't sell an extra set of your house keys) we do have you covered on the rest. From first aid kits & solar powered chargers to sleeping bags & non-perishable food, you'll rest easy knowing you're prepared no matter what.
