Hi Armand,
Sorry buddy but a SURVIVAL pack does not include areas for your photo card, laptop, two pairs of folded clothes and 2 waterproof matches.
This is survival.
Food, dehydrated.
Water purification system.
Lots of matches.
Knife and hatchet.
Fishing line and hooks.
A small packet of salt and spices.
Warm clothing, IE waterproof jacket, and wool sweater.
Etc. Etc. not some oh well, we are in the woods overnight kind of thing.

What no table cloth and settings for six?

A Bug Out Bag is a enabler-you have to KNOW how to survive. I'd last 5 minutes.

That "survival kit" just may save your life! IF you throw it on the ground, and IF that pursuing zombie trips over it… ;-)
