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.

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.

Great gift for a guy who loves zombie apocalypse stuff. It was fun actually having to open the crate with the pry bar. The items in the box were of good quality and were in great condition.

I ordered this as a Valentine's Day gift for my hubby. When he arrived at work he was told he had a sketchy looking package waiting for him that was covered in duct tape. (exactly what I was hoping for!). He tore it open and absolutely loved everything inside it! Especially the great quality machete. Thank you!!!! I hope to send him another one next year!
All prepared for the Zombie Annihilation!

My son loves all things Zombies and this crate was the perfect Christmas gift! He loved it! He couldn't get over the can of spam and the duck tape! It was the perfect gift and everyone got a real kick watching him try to open the crate! He goes fishing a lot and the machete will come in handy for all the brush he encounters on some of the trails. Thanks for some great memories.

Items from anyone's zombie apocalypse list

what is there to say about this crate. The zombie survival crate. With all he movies coming out about zombies and all the media craze about rumors of an apocalypse approaching, I know I sleep well. A flashlight, gorilla duct tape, GIANT machete and a first aid kit to assist your mistakes with the machete, you can be sure to either satisfy your sudden urge for home protection or anyone else's. A great idea and surprising gift idea that will amaze anyone receiving it. Even Chuck Norris....

I gave it to my brother for his birthday, and he was thrilled. He feels that he is ready for zombie attacks now. He was upset that you no longer sent twinkies, because everyone knows they last forever.
I told a friend about it and she wanted to know if you had crates for girls. You know, girls that don't like all the frilly stuff.
I will be ordering more for birthdays and Christmas gifts.

James gave me, simply put, the best customer service I've had in months. I used this item for a silent auction benefitting a charity. The item was one of the hottest items on the auction table - in fact, a bidder supassed all bids to buy it. It was hotter than, for example, a flat screen TV. The bidder was extremely happy about the item. I want to thank you all for your help and superior products. I'll never forget about this company and I'll always use you whenever I can
A gift worthy enough for a MAN

I cannot express my love for this company enough. Everything about you is enjoyable. Your website, attention to detail, creativity, and customer service above and beyond anything I've experienced. I purchased a mancrate for my husband's birthday. He is currently deployed with the IS Army in Guantanamo Bay. The gift was a joy for his entire unit. They all laughed and passed the machete around like it was a sacred artifact. The holy grail of all things sharp. I am a customer for life and can't tell enough people about how great you are!
Thank you so much.
