About This Site


We are the #1 ranked prepper website at BestPrepperWebsites.com! Our site is a unique resource for both new and experienced survivalists, preppers, and all outdoor enthusiasts. It lists top picks for survival items with links to where they can be purchased. But this site goes further to let you know why you might need each item, along with handy tips and recommended accessories when applicable. Hand picked YouTube videos are provided with many of the item descriptions to provide more insight into the particular item and these videos typically support why these items are top picks. The items listed on this site are our Top Picks. Overall a top pick is the best value for an item from both a quality and cost perspective.  This allows preppers to maximize the preps they have collected and still have quality items.  Always buying the most expensive items in their category will only reduce the overall supplies a prepper can accumulate.  The items listed on this site are some of the survival items that we have spent countless hours researching, comparing, reading reviews, reading what other preppers recommend, and in most cases purchasing and using for our own survival preparations. If an item is listed on this site, that means we are confident to use it ourselves. We are always on the lookout to upgrade prepping items that we already have and we frequently add to our prepping supplies, so we will continue my research and will upgrade this site with our latest top picks. All of this painstaking comparison research and compiling it in a unique way is free information to anyone who wants to scroll through this site. Campers, hikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts can benefit and learn by checking out this site also. Please note that we are not the seller for any item on this site. For the Amazon items linked from this site, you pay nothing extra by linking through this site, but we will make a small referral fee if you do purchase items and that helps us recoup some of the extensive time and effort that we put into building and maintaining this site. We could be doing something else with our free time, but this is our hobby and we love prepping. Thank you for your support of our site.
  • Although we have already extensively compared items, we recommend that you also do your own comparison against similar items to see for yourself if prefer other items. You will need to make your own purchase and other related decisions as this website is only information for your use. You may learn that you really like an item that you see on our site, but after your own investigation, you really prefer a different make or model than the one described on our site.
  • We also recommend that if you find any items of interest on our site, you may want to go ahead and add them to your Cart or Saved for Later list to consider for a future purchase. 
  • When you click on most item pictures on this site it will open a new window for that item on Amazon, Cabela's, or Bass Pro Shops, etc. From there, we recommend that you read the item reviews and decide for yourself if the item is right for you.
  • If you do order a lot on Amazon, in our opinion, it is worth it to join Amazon Prime so that you can better anticipate when you are receiving your Amazon shipped orders and you can also save on shipping costs for Amazon shipped orders that would normally be under the currently $35 limit for free shipping. The link to the free 30-day trial is at the bottom of this page. If you know that you are going to order a lot of supplies all at once, you can always use the free 30-day trial, place your orders, and then cancel before 30 days. You may even decide to keep the service as it provides other benefits in addition to two-day free shipping on many Amazon shipped items.
  • Prepping can be very expensive. Hopefully you can use this site as a reference both now and in the future to help prioritize your desired survival items, and then gradually increase your prepping supplies over time as you can afford them.
  • Please note that this site is still growing. Since we continue to research and test new items to add to our prepping supplies, this site will grow and will be maintained indefinitely. We also plan to upgrade which items are listed when items are no longer available or when new or replacement items (that we consider to be better purchases) become available over time.

We hope that this website will be useful to you. If you believe it is a good resource, please bookmark this site and share it with your friends and family who share your interests.
