As stated before, I believe in a combination of gear and skills. Given that, I search through a lot of junk on the Internet to find the right equipment. Today I found what appears to be a well-thought-out kit introduced in 2011.

I'm searching for details; it would seem this kit is not available, at least not here in the U.S.

Probably not available in the U.S. because there are numerous more practical and convenient choices. I am surprised to learn that a 55 gal drum is"easy to carry."

Not a bad product to have for a longer period of not having electric power if living in a house. Just roll it outside when using.
Not very difficult to make your own out of a barrel. Just need to find a big cooking pot.

I use a variety of methods and search parameters to find better pre-made kits. Even kits that include real food (freeze-dried or MRE) are lacking in the quality department.

If you know of a more practical kit, send me a link.

Without knowing the specs, it looks to be. The pot fits perfectly in the container/stove. The rest of the space is for tubs, stove parts, towels, bottles of water, and rice.

watching the video, it seems that the fire chamber is restricted, without adequate air flow, which is something necessary for good, hot combustion and subsequent heating.

It's efficient packaging and storage, all right, but I fear it will do poorly in actual use.

Interestingly enough, our hot water heater is on the blink and service is likely about twenty-four hours away. Oh dear, what shall we do?!! We can still use the microwave, but beyond that, I would crank up the camping and outdoor gear - the two burner camp stove or various canister rigs. For showers, I would go for solar shower bags, which I have used extensively and satisfactorily in the past.

These would be my preference before resorting to heating water over wood fire = it will get the job done, eventually,

See it's dated December 2011.

March 2011 is when Japan had it's largest earthquake, a 9.1.

The Japanese seem to take disasters more seriously since then. Wasn't there a link on here to the kit breakdown every household is expected to have. Which included things like safety helmets etc.

And they have a facility to train people on what to do in a quake/typhoon/fire.

I do recall a thread of that nature. I don't know where it is or its title.

This is an interesting video. Thanks.
