You’re marooned on a desert island. Quick: What three items do you bring?
“Lip balm, some twine and a spoon and I'll build you an irrigation system,” boasts some hardo in the back. Disregard that yahoo.
Instead, try this “I’d ask for a million more wishes” solution: the Seventy2 Survival System Backpack from Uncharted Supply Co., just now available from our friends at Huckberry.

Originally funded via Indiegogo back in 2017, Seventy2 is named for the amount of time FEMA says you should be able to fend for yourself in case of a major emergency. That’s 72 hours, for the record. Outfitted by a team of survival experts, the pack runs 30 kits and tools deep, from the obvious (first aid kit, beanie, sunscreen) to the surprisingly vital (air filtration mask, 100 feet of paracord, collapsible pickaxe).
Of course, anyone could toss dozens of tools into a bag. And for some of the included wares here — flashlight, multitool — you might have a trusty option at home that’s already bailed you out of some sticky situations. But it’s unlikely you can match a pack that holds all this at the outset. The Seventy2’s roomy interior keeps everything color-coded and in its proper place, while the waterproof exterior can really take a beating. It even doubles as a flotation device. Hurricane season, a week in the woods, zombie apocalypse — bring it on.
