Do items in the Phoenix Kit expire?

Yes, they do.

However, we have spent the last couple of years working with different manufactures around the US and Canada to find products that are not only of the highest quality but have the longest shelf life. 9 out of the 11 items in the kit that expire have a 5-year shelf life of longer.

Here is a full list of products in the Phoenix Kit that expire:

  • Radio - 3 years (Should recharge once a year)
  • Hand Warmers - 4 years
  • First Aid Kit - 3 to 5 Years
  • Food Rations - 5 years
  • Glowstick - 5 years
  • Mask - 5 years
  • Nitrile Gloves - 5 years
  • Towelettes - 5 years
  • Water - 5 years
  • Light Source - 7 years (Should recharge once a year)
  • Potassium Iodine Tabs - 7 years

To make sure that you never have to think about your items expiring. We have built the Phoenix Kit in such a way that it is easy to replace your expired items like the rations. We can send you replacement packs for these items and it is as simple as swapping out the three small boxes at the bottom of your kit.

We have two replacement packs that will be available for owners of Phoenix Kits.

Daily Rations Pack - This pack comes with replacements for Hand Warmers, Food Rations, Glowstick, Nitrile Gloves, Towelettes, Water, and garbage bags.

Safety Item Pack - In this pack, we provide replacements for the Radio, First Aid Kit, Masks, Light Source, and Potassium Iodine Tabs.

When the time comes for you to replace your items we will send out a reminder to you so that you can easily pick up replacements and be confident that you are still prepared.
