Gear for The Lone Survivor
I wouldn’t be breathing if I didn’t have rules: vigilance; good judgment; meticulous preparation.
Surviving the zombie apocalypse requires you to travel quickly and quietly, and that means packing light. You have to pick your tools wisely and keep them within reach at all times.
I don't go anywhere without my Gerber® Gator Machete Junior—my trusty sidekick in the constant war for survival. It is NOT A TOY. Compact but lethal, its 10.75" high-carbon steel blade is equally suited for slashing through underbrush, debris-filled alleys, or hordes of the undead. If you have to pick one close-combat weapon, this is it.
Subways. Abandoned malls. Convenience stores. You learn real fast which places to avoid and which are worth picking through. Either way, you never go looking for supplies without a reliable flashlight, and you never travel without a small first aid kit and a roll of duct tape for fast field repairs for yourself and your gear.
Know thyself and know thy enemy. That's what Sun Tzu said, and if it worked for a legendary warrior like him, it'll work for me. Sometimes, I like to find a safe spot and keep my wits sharp by thumbing through Max Brooks’ definitive Zombie Survival Guide. The man was enlightened, may he walk in peace.
It’s obvious but I’ll say it anyway: you can never carry enough Spam.
A can of Spam will be substituted until a solution to this crisis is reached.
Keep evil at bay:
- Gerber® Gator Machete Junior
- 10.75" high-carbon steel blade
- NOT A TOY
Essentials for the fight:
- Zombie Survival Guide (Max Brooks)
- Zombie Flashlight
- First Aid Kit
- Duct Tape
- Spam. Delicious, delicious Spam.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar, without bows, ribbons or fluff.

I didn't really know what to expect when I ordered this crate for my husband. Let me say, it exceeded my expectations! The shipping was so fast and when the package arrived (duct taped mind you!) we were both excited to see what was inside.
When you first tear in to the packaging (YES! pay extra for the duct taped box! It's well worth the entertainment!), you open to find a little crowbar and wooden crate in which you have to spend the next 5-10 minutes embarrassed and laughing to try and get this d$@% box opened!
Once open, the products are true to their word. I can't say enough great things about this gift! We will be using Man Crates for many years to come! Thank you to all!
Takes the Aweseome

I have known about Man Crates for a while and was dying to actually buy one of these things for someone. Finally, on my brother's birthday I was able to send him one of the best gifts I've ever given him - and with a little unanticipated pay back.
He loved the crate. At first he didn't know what it was or how to open the crate as who ever packed it apparently (according to him) used an entire roll of duct tape to cover and seal the crate. I thought this was ingenious as he frequently does the same thing to me. Once he was able to cut away some of the tape he then had to pry it open with the crow bar. The gifts inside also pleased him very much. He especially loves the knife.
So, thank you Man Crates for taking the extra time and material that wasn't included in the packaging description to enact justified revenge on my brother.

The gift itself is great! I watched him open it, and all the while he was asking what it was. I was kind of disappointed when he didn't have to use the provided crowbar, as the lid just came off. He said it was a great gift, he just wished that there was a baseball bat or cricket bat inside. Other than that, this is one of the best gifts I have ever been able to buy for my hard to buy for husband.
Man Crates Edit:
Hey Kim, glad to hear the crate was a success, bummer to hear that the crate arrived unsealed, definitely not how we usually send our crates!! If you happen to see this-, give our customer champions a call at 866-902-7260 and we'll make it right, promise.

My Hubby loved his crate and the knife!! He immediately started taking pics of the box the items and sending it to people lol. He finally agrees with me that I am amazing! My only disappointment was our crate was not glued properly. There was a small gap all around the top of the crate so the lid did not fit and the glue did not seal it shut. my 5 year old removed the lid like nothing. Customer service was amazing and gave me a percentage back. They were so nice and willing to help in any way!

This purchase was a gift to my brother who just loves zombie movies.
It was a total surprise for me and he loves it.
Thanks for the brilliant idea.

I selected the zombie survival crate to send to my father for Father's Day, and am currently the favorite child! He absolutely loved the whole concept of having to open it with a crowbar, to the Spam (though he preferred the Twinkie) and just thought it was the coolest thing ever!
Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to top this for the remaining Father's Days [since he's not exactly croaking any time soon]...
Best Father's Day gift EVER!!!

I feel like it's always so hard to find the right gifts for my husband as he is not into some of the more "typical" man stuff but when I found this, I knew I had a winner and boy was I right. My husband was blown away and his friends couldnt stop talking about how well I "got my husband." They were so jealous- they sent all of their girlfriends the photos with a "hint, hint". Customer service was also incredibly helpful.

Just having to open the crate with a pry bar was awesome enough. I gave it to my brother for his 30th and he was blown away at how cool it was because it was unlike anything he has ever received. My fiancé was pissed that I was getting him one (but he's got a birthday coming up). The note with it and your companies playful banter is fun and refreshing. I was just surfing around for gifts and saw your ad on one of the sites and now you got a customer for life. And I have already told a lot my friends about you guys. So thank you for making my brothers birthday epic.

What do you get for a seasoned roadie who damn near ended his life when he recently flew over the handlebars of his Harley?? ....something to celebrate being un-dead of course!
Needless to say, our buddy loved his Man Crate and posted tons of pics all over Facebook. I understand that the SPAM went to the first memeber of his family who brought home a zombie head.
Thanks again for a great gift idea!!
Did the job!!

My BF loved it.... even though he wasn't allowed to have another flash light, I made this one exception!!! He is a Walking Dead Fan! He especially loved the duct tape box & always wanted a machete! Like a little kid in a grown mans body!
Thanks for the great idea! Not something I would typically pick out for him.
