  1. Entered to win. No one else needs to enter because I plan on winning. Good luck everyone.

  2. If i had to add something, i’d add some redbull!

    • Right?! Sleeping is a luxury we can’t afford when there is so much awesome stuff to see out there. Red bull or (for me) Monster would be great. They really need someone selling those in line.

  3. Heather Meleski

    A small deodorant would be nice and/or some pain reliever of some sort. Long days in the sun or even longer nights out may call for either! ; )

    • Both are great ideas. You are so right about the sun. That Con smell can get potent if people don’t take care of themselves out there. Thanks for the ideas.

      • You ever been tempted to carry a spray deodorant for those who think of bathing not as a necessity but a suggestion? Do a run by deodorizing.

      • I always carry Burts Bees face wipes. Not as good as a shower, but can definitely be used in a pinch to clean yourself up.

  4. Oh my. Look at all those juicy prizes!

  5. yes please!!!

  6. Tylenol is a must. Nothing worse than being stuck in a line with a headache.

  7. My kids would love this. The only think that would make it better is actual Comic Con tickets. We are a NerdFu family. Thanks for this opportunity to win this awesome prize pack #NerdFu #Seagate #MIMOCO

    • That would be awesome. Maybe one day the folks at SDCC will give us the chance to do something like that. You are quite welcome and good luck to ya!! #NerdsUnite

  8. This pack is amazing!!! Only thing I would add is some healthy snacks it’s easy to forget to eat and end up paying too much for aweful Convention Center food!!! And maybe Band-Aids just in case!

  9. I would add Norman Reedus to this prize package! LOL

  10. One thing that could make this even better would be a Hall H Fast Pass 🙂

  11. Entered to win! Where’s the Pip-Boy?! That is a MUST in the pack!

  12. Pretty much everything you need is in there <3

  13. Always love the giveaways from you guys! Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. You need to add some lip balm to that pack. Most cons are held in a very dry environment and lips need the moisture. Just saying.

  15. Nader Michael Hanna Al-Shaikh

    I would have to say adding a travel deodorant and a travel unisex perfume would complete it, unless you add some exclusive vouchers from the booths there that would be great.

  16. Cool prize pack! I would add a variety pack of Kind bars to keep the blood sugar levels up or a comfy pad for sitting while waiting on queue (my reasonable choices), or a decent digital camera for getting good pics of all the cosplay (my pie-in-the-sky choice :’)

  17. Corgi Kohmander

    You guys always giveaway the most amazing prize packs. If it helps I can just pick it so you can save on shipping

  18. I would add various medicines and snacks.

  19. Band-Aids for blisters!

  20. I would add some sort of snack because in all the excitement I know I tend to forget to eat, or not get a chance to for quite a while, so snacks are a must.

  21. I need this!

  22. I’d add some Ectocooler of course!!! lol

  23. I would add one of those little fold up chairs that you can perch on and peppermint cream to ease the pain in your aching feet

  24. I would add insoles for shoes to keep the feet comfy. All day on your feet!

  25. I would add a binder with page protectors to hold your signed comics and photos to keep them from getting damaged in the cried!

  26. Michelle A McKeever

    This is an awesome giveaway!

  27. I would put in a couple of the comic-con exclusive pops

  28. Since I’ve never been to a con of any sort, I think you should include a what to do/what to see hit list of all the best things.

  29. Can’t wait for SDCC!

  30. Would be soo cool to win but I’m sure I won’t soo all u people hoping I won’t will get ur way would be real cool though

  31. I’d add a granola bar or other snack items to keep the blood sugar up. =D

  32. A cool travel size first aide kit! You do not want to miss something because you got something like a dang paper cut and had to go find a bandage.. Then to turn around and have it be bland… At a convention. No. Plus blood on memorabilia is a big no no.

  33. chapstick or hand lotion!

  34. I’d add snacks and some Comic Con Exclusive Pops.

  35. Michael A. Foster II

    All we are missing is fuel for the body; a pack of granola bars or a bag of mixed trail mix would be perfect to survive the con. Especially if an hamburger is priced above $10 – nobody can survive in such harsh environments.

    • You are so right. We actually hit up Ralph’s there in San Diego on our first day and stock up on groceries. I’ve always got a couple PB&J’s on me. No time or $$ for that expensive con food.

  36. I need something like this to survive my first ever adventure at SDCC. Oh boy, still can’t believe that I’m going there, even if it’s for 2 jam packed days. Thanks again for doing this giveaway!

    • First timer!! Welcome to the SDCC group and congrats. You are going to have a blast!! Good luck with the giveaway and we hope you have the best time EVER!!!

  37. I was wondering if you guys were going to do this again this year! 🙂 Maybe add some snacks??

  38. Awesome giveaway as usual from you guys!

  39. Add a 3DS with Pokemon Sun or Moon

  40. The pack is pretty good as a starter for Comic Con. Good job, guys!

  41. Energy Drinks and Chips!

  42. This pack is really good. To make even better, add a second 3,000mAh battery because we all know the more battery charging stations we have during Cons the better!

  43. Awesome giveaway! 🙂

  44. Michelle Mixson

    I love the contests and if I do attend Comic Con I must have the

  45. A multitool of some sort, a la a Wallet Monkey. Never a bad idea to be prepared for emergency life hacks.

  46. Jessica Galicia

    I would say adding sunglasses is a good idea for those waiting in line when the sun is out.

  47. Need to add some energy snacks, jerky, or similar

    • Funny you mention that. We tried to get Jerky XP to get us a little something for this. Who knows, maybe they’ll decide to add a little something.

  48. Maybe just some chips. Great prize pack! Way to go guys!

  49. Awesome giveaway, and one I would use on a daily basis.

  50. I hope that I win. Good luck to everyone!

  51. I’d add a small notepad to that already awesome lineup. Sometimes I like to make small lists, so that would come in handy and save me from using my phone.

    • Smart idea and you art right about using your phone. Even with all the battery backups in the world, that battery life is still something you don’t want to risk.

  52. More cool stuff

  53. You forgot the adult diapers. No need to visit the bathrooms!

  54. a case of travel size Right Guard and some nose plugs.

  55. I would add a Perky Jerky and Tillamook beef jerky and beef stick assortment, and a pair of ear plugs. The beef jerky and beef sticks are a great tasting snack, and a good source of protein, while keeping my energy level up! The ear plugs would be to minimize the noisy from people begging for some of my beef jerky and beef sticks. 😉

  56. I dont really know what I would add other than some snacks, deodorant and maybe a big neon flag with a logo so that your friends can spot you in a crowd hahah.

  57. Super Moleskin Padding

  58. Great giveaway! Definitely something snacky… jerky… a 9 ft long strip of giraffe jerky

  59. Wish I was closer. I’m on the wrong coast. This is a great substitute though.

  60. This could come in very handy at GenCon in August! Thanks for the chance to win.

  61. I would add a Towel

  62. Glide. It prevents chafing.

  63. This would really come in handy.

  64. Would love to win

  65. I want all these. PrizesbI want to win!!!!!!!

  66. I’d add beef jerky 😀

  67. Awesome giveaway as usual! I would add nothing to it, good luck to everyone

  68. Honestly I’d love to see some snacks added to this bad boy! Granola bars. Check.

  69. lol i would add a DS ;D since sometimes the line wait is long for stuff might as well be entertained

  70. When I saw this, I was Oh My Gosh Dropped my Taco. Could not believe this prize. Everyone who helped out on this is amazing.

  71. Nice giveaway

  72. A Tide stain-stick would be an awesome addition! 😀

  73. patricia delgado

    I’d bring a small pillow/cushion for sitting on

  74. I know this will sound strange, but a new pair of socks. All that walking leads to distressed feet, but I understand carrying around a foot bath/massager might not be the best. Sometimes a fresh pair of socks feels great.

  75. This would be better with a portable charger!!

  76. Jeremy Ottinger

    Pretty good as it is, but maybe like a gift card for food? That would be useful.

  77. A sketchbook to collect awesome sketches!

  78. Deodorant? It’s important.

  91. Thanks for the golden opportunity! I would love to win!

  92. This kit needs a camera for all the awesome con pics

  93. Let’s see what to add what to add… So here are some options to add cause who doesn’t love options lol. Travel size deodorant to keep the pits at bay, or some yummy Jerky cause snake are always needed to prevent hangray nerd fu’s, or some peppermint lotion for a refreshing revival of your hands and feet or my favorite because I’m a organized nerd is a small business card binder so you can keep up will all the fantabolous booths!!!

  184. Theresa Duncan

    This is the Ultimate Survival Pack……..even down to the minor details, you all thought of everything!! It’s by far the coolest Survival Pack I have ever seen!! If I had to pick something to add to the Survival Pack, it would be Packets Of Trail Mix to add protein from the nuts, sugar from the M&M’S or dried fruit. That way people would have a quick healthy snack that will balance their diet and maintain their blood sugar!!

    I’d add a t-shirt for those occasions when one comes in handy.

  186. What a cool thing!

  190. I would add some m&m’s

  191. During con season, I needs to have all my energy to explore the whole convention. I’d include some powerbars or cliff bars, but some may be allergic. So I would say some emergen c packets. Those things are awesome. Crack 1 open,mix in a water bottle or any beverage…any “beverage” & drink up. Helps to keep you from catching a getting sick during and after the con is over. Great giveaway. Thanks Fu-ers

  203. I would add some trail mix and deodorant because you often forget to eat and you should smell fresh.

  215. I’d add a journal/scrap book, something small enough to add lil souvenirs to so they don’t get lost in your bag.

  216. something with caffeine!

  217. In the future could you please use Gleam instead of Rafflecopter? It’s so much easier, especially for daily tasks like tweeting.

    Rafflecopter = click to tweet, click button to actually tweet, click to post, click on view it now QUICKLY before the window closes, click ellipse, click copy link to tweet, C&P back into Rafflecopter, submit.

    Gleam = Click to tweet. DONE. that’s it.

  218. definitely needs a mini first aid kit and a sewing kit just in case of accidents

  219. Reusable water bottle

  220. Alicia Rodriguez

    Everything seems pretty cool already. Not sure what else to add to it. Maybe a water proof bag to store some stuff in case you are on a boat or going swimming.

  221. This survival pack is perfect for SDCC! Fingers crossed!

  222. Probably add a small stick of deodorant and/or a can of redbull with a snickers bar.

  223. My favorite con item is my little foldable chair. It isn’t too heavy, folds flat, and goes right into my backpack. While it definitely isn’t a comfy reclining chair, it does break up the standing/sitting on the ground game. I would also include deodorant (even if to just to donate to someone else, hehe), a granola/candy bar, and advil/tylenol. I’m loving the Febreeze you added, how much judgment would there be if I walked the Con floor just spritzing in front of me? 😉 Oh I totally forgot that I usually add energy jelly beans (made for runners) to my kit for a burst of energy in an emergency.

  224. Massager!

  225. I would add a spot to strap a poster tube to the backpack!

  226. Good Luck everyone. I hope I win lol

  227. I believe if we could add the Wolverine action figure or a Wolverine Bobblehead, this pack and the giveaway would become pretty amazing.

  228. I’d add extra strength deodorant and soap

  229. Add an exclusive Funko Pop… you know… like everyone else has for SDCC. Haha. 🙂

  230. I’d add a pen and a pad of Post-It notes. You never know when you need to write down something on paper.

  232. an autograph book or comic/photo sleeves

  233. Garelyn Williams

    solar waterproof speaker

  234. A GroPro to record it all in 4K glory

  237. Awesome Giveaway!! I really need this I never win anything.

  238. Another item that might be nice are the Colgate Wisp, on the go tooth brushes. Perfect thing after sleeping in line for Hall H.

  239. It’s my first time going to SDCC, I don’t know what else I would need. This survival pack is al ready pretty great. Maybe some snacks.

  240. James Schiaffino

  241. You can’t survive comic-con without a good pair of sneakers.

  243. Condoms…even nerds get lucky.

  244. Add a smorgasbord of mini bottles of booze! 😛

  245. i honestly dont know what i would add to this great prize pack!
