    $10k bundles, they seem to last a little longer that way.

    Handkerchiefs, first aid stuff, fire making stuff, I've done cold weather gear like gloves and knit hats before as well. It helps compress them down, and if the bag gets wet... we'll you know. That being said, you'd have to do it with exclusively unused stuff dedicated for emergency use.

    All my field medical stuff...but I put them in a ziplock bag (unsealed) first, because once you tear open the vac bag it's done. So, I can reseal what is left over.

    Also socks in my day pack, they stay dry and take up less space.

    Excess med supplies like individually packed bandages and single rolls of cause, tape, 25 cotton balls ea., sutures and needles, catheters, Autoclaved tools. (Dental and surgical tools)
    Sanitary napkins for major surgical bandage. Surgical staples and gun.
    Also threads for sewing because they deteriorate over time.
    Rubber tattle tales for canning. ( I vac-seal these in 12 pks.)
    I also purchased 10 lock blade knives and oiled them, then vac-sealed them individually.
    Arrow heads, fletch and nocks.
    Copper, silver and zinc. (Both, powder and solid form to prevent oxidation)
    Paper and writing instruments.

    Nuts, bolts, screws, nails, galvanized strapping tape etc..

    These are just a few things (extra stash) off the top of my head that aren't food related that I have vac-sealed for long term to protect them from the elements.

    I made 3 dups of important docs ( birth cert, SS cards, med records, marriage cert, titles etc) and vac sealed those. Originals and two dups are in the bunkers and I keep one Dup here at home.

    Remember what Einstein said:
    I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
