The Call of the Wild
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.
The Great Outdoors
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.
Survival of the Fittest
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.

I sent this to my husband at work, where he is a saleman for guns, ammo, surplus supplies, MANLY things. He had to open it in front ofall his male co-workers. They all LOVED it! My husband was impressed, and immediately went to your website to check it out. He finally got something for Father's Day that WASN'T a tie, and plans on putting hinges and a lock on his MAN Crate to be able to continue using it! Thank you SO much. This is definately a go-to site for birthdays and Christmas for all the men in my family!
HMMMMM....that's a lot of Duct Tape!!

We sent this to our nephew who lives in a different state. He is always very creative at wrapping our gifts with lots of tape. I think this year we got him good. His first reaction was Hmmmm that's a lot of Duct Tape. We had a lot of fun going back and forward with pictures of him opening his gift. I think he was pleasantly surprised with the contents too.
I will be back!

My fiance is so hard to buy for because he has just about everything he could ever want or need already. I saw this company on pinterest and after seeing the survival kit I knew it was perfect for him for Father's Day. I have spent countless hours watching recorded episodes of dual survivor! I was so excited about it, and he was so intrigued by the duct tape wrapping, that I gave it to him two weeks early. He loved it. I am planning on ordering him another one for our upcoming anniversary. I can't wait to see if ya'll add new sets.

I sent this crate to my husband who is deployed. He absolutely loved it! It also arrived within two weeks and this was around Easter time. Man Crates now has a customer for life! Matter of fact i'm sending him the daddy bag for fathers day since i'm currently pregnant! This shit was awesome!
Successful Birthday Surprise
Posted by Amy Pellegrini on 05/1/2014 ( Outdoor Survival Crate 5 stars)
I placed my order for the Outdoor Survival Crate for my husband's 30th birthday weeks in advance and requested to have it delivered on his actual birthday. It was right on time! I was so excited...and so was he! He is a huge camping, hunting, outdoor activity enthusiast, so I knew this would be right up his alley. When he opened the box and saw the crate with the crowbar on top, he smiled from ear-to-ear knowing he would get to crack it open. When he got the box open and started pulling out all the items, he grew more and more excited with each product. He spent the rest of the evening reading his survival guide, playing with his new "toys" and telling all his buddies what a great job his wife did on his birthday gift! It was a huge success and I'm so grateful that I was able to give him something that he was so excited about on such a big day! He is incredibly picky and hard to please, so this was a lifesaver. I'm already looking at which Man Crate I should order for him next!

How awesome ManCrates are! I got one for my boyfriend and he LOVED it! He loved every bit of it; the wooden crate his manly survival gear came in, the fact you have to open it with a COMPLIMENTARY crowbar. all the manly contents! He's just itching to go camping now.
I loved the great customer support and funny comments/jokes included with the contents.
Thanks so much ManCrates and keep up the good work!
BEST GIFT EVER FOR MY OUTDOORSMAN SON!

I bought this for my son who is a TOTAL guy. Hunter, camper, hiker, and all around great man! I saw theses and knew he'd love it. I was so on target. He loved it and couldn't wait to try out the items. Said he'd never heard of y'all but Mom hooked him up!
Thanks for the quick shipment, quality items and awesome "man wrapping"

I ordered this for my husband. It arrived super fast. He loved it! He even took it to work to show the guys. We couldn't have been happier with the product. I tell everyone I know about man crates.

I ordered this gift for my husband for Valetine's day. It arrived very quick and the customer service was superb. My husband loves survival type stuff and this was right up his alley. I think this is honestly will be the gift he will be talking about for years. After 15 years of marriage it's hard to find your mate a gift. This was a great idea and I will for sure be ordering more crates in the future. Job well done.
The PERFECT gift!

My boyfriend is all about camping and survival tactic stuff. This crate offered him all the perfect gifts paired together, got him excited to go hiking/camping, and aided to his collection of necessity man things. I'd recommend this crate for any adventure-lover!! He was so surprised to receive a large crate that he had to pry open, also! "Best birthday ever" he said. Thanks Man Crates!!
