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.

      for the guy that has EVERYTHING!

      Bought this for my husband a few months ago. He's a wannabe doomsday preppers and fascinated by that show. He LOVED this! The crate wrapped in duct tape was cool. He loved everything inside and started to read the book immediately. This was a very unique gift that he loved. Will definitely get others that fit his personality.

      Survival Crate

      I had bought two of these crates for Christmas gifts. They were so well liked that I ordered two more. One for me and one for another Christmas gift. They are awesome.

      Loved sending this to my husband while he was away, and his friend was jealous when he saw him opening up the crate with the crowbar! LOL Fun gift. Thanks!

      No longer the world’s worst gift giver

      I have been given the title 'Worst Gift Giver' for many years. Not for lack of trying but I was just that. This was my first big gift to my awesome boyfriend. I was nervous for him to be opening my 'bad gift' in front of his family. BUT thanks to Man Crates... it was a success! Everyone enjoyed watching him break into it and the bonus… all the Survival items where valued even for this extreme outdoors group. Thank you Man Crates!

      The best EVER!

      Got this little gem for my boyfriend. A little nervous he wouldn't enjoy it, boy was I wrong! He loved every part especially prying open the box. Thank you man crates, I'll definitely return in the future!

      My daughter sent me the survival man crate to my office. I work for Ripley's Believe it or Not! and we see a lot of amazing stuff come in the mail ... the man crate had my entire team gathered around to watch me open it with the mini crowbar and reveal each item inside.

      The crate has now become part of my permanent Ripley display above my desk. It looks like a set from Indiana Jones :-)

      You guys are doing an amazing job. Keep it up! THANKS!

      #dadbrags winningest dad LOVED it!

      He's all about the zombie apocalypse and every other dire situation, so long as it means he gets cool toys disguised as tools. He is planning a survival lesson for the kids (7, 8, 16, 18, 22, & 26) based on his new ManCrate... you guys truly are awesome. It made his day, and I hold my reign as favorite kid... :)

      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!

    Here's a knowledge bomb- the jerky by the register at your gas station is peasant-fare. If you think you don't like jerky, you've just never had the real thing.

    Premium Jerky Ammo Can

    NFL Barware Crate

    NFL Barware Crate

    Smart money says this crate is going to put a welcome-to-the-NFL, Ray Lewis hit on your tongue.

    Hot and Spicy Crate

    It's a three-hit combo- a brass knuckle meat tenderizer to soften up the meat, the hickory smoker box for extra deep flavor penetration, and pro-style thermometers to pull the steaks off at exactly the right moment.

    Grill Master Crate

    We've got no shortcuts to sell you to improve your game, but we have gathered a few awesome items that make any golf outing more fun.
