ESEE Comprehensive Survival Kit w/ ESEE-6 Knife

This is a discussion on ESEE Comprehensive Survival Kit w/ ESEE-6 Knife within the Related Gear & Equipment forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm pretty sure that wetfire has an expiration date on the packages - anyone try them past the date?...

    I've had mine quite a long time. Every time I use them they work great, but I'll have to check them out to see if they expire. I imagine that eventually they won't work as well.

    They definitely lose their effectiveness if you store them outside their foil wrapper.

    This is kinda cool - that kit is very much like the one I put together. I use oven roasting bags for boiling water - they're fine as long as you don't put them in the fire.


    Hey Bark'n,

    thanks for the info on the space blanket. Check out the super shelter - sounds a lot like what you do, but extends the plastic out in front of the shelter btwn the shelter and fire. Might be a better option when the wind and rain really kick up.

    Cubes stored in their original packaging aproximately 5 years.
