You heard it, and your instincts told you it must be answered. The last bar on your cell phone disappears as you drive into the foothills, all of your worries far behind in the rearview mirror. Miles from civilization, not even your cornflower-blue-shirt-wearing boss Tad can encroach on your weekend. You're off the grid.
The untamed wilderness is your proving ground. After all, there's no greater challenge than that of Man against the Elements.
It's just you and an overgrown hinterland seething with insects and wild animals - just the way you like it. With only a few hours of daylight left, you set out in search of a suitable campsite.
Paul Bunyan had an axe and an ox, but you have a 5-in-1 multi-tool. You wield it with the strength and precision of a grizzled mountaineer. At this rate, it's only a matter of time before you trade in your sleeping bag for a log cabin, but you need to set up camp before something mistakes you for dinner.
You're a descendant of Man, and Man discovered fire. Yours is crackling merrily in no time with a few strikes of your firestarter. The camp is your domain - would-be predators keep their distance, and the chill leaves your bones.
In the morning, you boil water and whip up some hard-earned hot grub while consulting your dog-eared copy of the Army Field Manual. With luck, the only hairy situation you'll have is the prodigious beard that will inevitably sprout during your walkabout, but it helps to have the backup. Channeling John Wayne with a little cowboy coffee, you toast your first night of survival. Nature, 0. You, 1.
You feel invigorated. You make short work of striking camp, and take your bearings. If you end up in a staring contest with a mountain lion, you'll be ready. It's going to be a good weekend.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

I bought this set for my fiance, an airman in the USAF, for Christmas. He was thrilled. The confusion at first that yes you do indeed need to bust this thing open with a crowbar was exactly what I was going for. Every single item inside elicited a response that could only have been matched by Ralphie Parker opening a Red Ryder.
Thanks guys! For Valentine's day he'll be getting another Man Crate for sure!

I ordered the Outdoor Survival Crate for my husband for Christmas, and he absolutely loved it. He is very outdoorsy (Eagle Scout, hunter, fisherman, avid hiker, etc), and as someone who thinks shopping in an open air mall counts for outdoor activity, I tend to struggle when it comes to buying him anything adventure-related. Man Crates came to the rescue! The crate wasn't shipped on time, and customer service was extraordinary. They immediately overnighted it to me, and even added something additional to the crate because the recipient is active duty Navy. Gestures like that guarantee my future patronage. I highly recommend Man Crates & their unique, fun gifts!

Christmas 2014, I bought my husband this Survival Kit. He enjoys camping and pretending he's Bear Grylls. This was the best gift with the greatest reaction that kept going for hours. Now, all that's left to do is hop on our JEEP and get lost. :)
I will be back man crates for your New Daddy Kit soon enough... soon enough.

Just got this gift. My girlfriend wrapped the whole package. Untapped it and thought another lame gift that I have to pretend to like... WRONG!!! As soon as I opened the package and revealed a wooden crate with a crowbar I was hooked! Spent a good five minutes opening it which was half the fun. Upon opening it I realized I had got the outdoor survivalist cate. I inspected each item with curiosity. Funny thing is I don't need any of this stuff.. Well at least at the moment. Still with that said this is on the top of the list of gifts I have ever gotten because of the fun I had opening and reviewing everything. Makes me want to grow a beard buy some flannel shirts and live out in the wild. If you are having any doubts about buying this for a man throw them away and get it.

Thanks so much!

My boyfriend absolutely loved his crate, said it was the best gift he has received all year. Minor issue with the lid but everything was taken care of in the most professional and respectful manner. I can't wait to order another crate!

I bought one for my Dad and one for my Uncle. They both really enjoyed getting them open. The whole family got entertainment out of that!

The glue was harder to get in to . Would have liked it much better if it was just nailed. Who ever glued it put to much glue. Not impressed at all.
