I think this is a great list. It provides a very comprehensive listing of emergency gear but would you mind some (hopefully constructive) criticism?

It seems like you are overpacked in some areas with luxurious and/or redundant items. If you have the capacity to carry all this stuff then by all means it's great to have but, if weight and space are a concern I would suggest the following changes:
RD = redundant, you have an equivalent item elsewhere (ponchos/raincoats, 2 types of gloves, machete/hatchet)
LUX = luxury item/non-critical
GRN = additional suggestions
Also, a question: How much cash do you guys think is enough? If power goes down you could be without access to an ATM for an extended time period. $200 seems very low to me.
