I am writing a bit late today due to computer problems. But anyway, here it is. This is a blog that I have been debating on whether or not to write. I have been asked on many occasions, who do I purchase preps from? Since I wrote the blog on how to recognize a good company, I have been contacted be several people wanting recommendations.
First of all, I want to qualify a few things, one I have only dealt with a limited number of companies. Second, just because I do not name them does not mean they are not a reputable company, it just means I haven’t dealt with them. There are many fine companies that I will not mention.
Freezedryguy.com, I have dealt with them for about 30 years. There are an excellent source of Mountain House and other dehydrated and freeze-dried foods. He carries good quality products and tries to stick with American Made.
DisasterStuff.com, They have a store located in Roseville, California and sell through the internet. They carry a large variety of preparedness items including water filters, dehydrators, solar ovens and grinders. They also sell food and first aid supplies. The owners are reputable and will stand behind what they say.
sierrasolar.com located in Grass Valley, California. They are an excellent source of information on the use of solar, wind and water for alternate power. There catalog and website provides you with lots of information and a large selection of products at fair prices. There staff is highly qualified and can offer you a lot of guidance if you are thinking about going off the grid.
SurvivingNstyle.com a small store with a good selection of supplies located in Twin Falls, Id. They have quality gear and their prices are fair.
stpaulmercantile.com, they are a good source of kerosene stoves and Aladdin lanterns.
Honeyville.com has two locations one in Southern California and a second in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are primarily a food supplier and carry a good selection. You can find them on the internet.
bestglide.com is an excellent source of mil spec and commercial survival gear. They provide a lot of survival kits and supplies to the airline industry. The only thing I don’t like about them is that they still carry Wise Foods, which I think is a substandard product.
Emergency Essentials, a Utah based Company with several stores located throughout the state. They are basically a good company and I have never had a problem with them. However you need to be a bit selective they do carry some miscellaneous items that I consider substandard. I do not recommend their seventy-two hour kits. They are a good source of Mylar bags.
As I said at the beginning, these are people that I have dealt with and feel comfortable recommending. There are many other good companies out there and if you want to recommend someone feel free to send in your comments.
