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 Elkr Ridge Machete--my trusty sidekick in the constant war for survival. It is NOT A TOY. Compact but lethal, its 12.9" stainless 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.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

This was everything I'd hoped it would be. My brother took so long to open it that my sister-in-law got bored and took a shower, and was suitably terrified when he ran in unannounced to show her the machete. Now he's plotting to gift this to others...

My son loves Zombie stuff and even got us watching Walking Dead, so we thought the Zombie Survival crate would be a great 21st birthday gift. I had him FaceTime me while he opened it, and I had so much fun watching him struggle with the crate. At one point he said man I am sweating and as he popped one of the edges, he said is it GLUED????? OMG I started rolling laughing so hard. Once opened he LOVED all the items, especially the Machete.
Definitely worth it.

When my husband opened the zombie survival crate, it did not have the 'Zombie Survival Guide' which it was suppose to have. Instead, it had some other manual that has nothing to do with zombies. So, my husband didn't get it (that it was a Zombie Survival Crate) because there was nothing else in the crate to indicate that that is what it was. Since we are Walking Dead fans, the whole point of me giving this gift was the zombie theme. I had to explain to him that it was a Zombie Crate. I paid extra for the quick shipping and it did not arrive on the day that it was suppose to. So it ended up being a late gift.

Well I have been waiting for over an hour to see the expression on my husbands face when he opened this. I am the Zombie fan and was so excited to find this for him however my joy and his is being greatly diminished by the difficulty he is having opening the crate. So far he has used the crow bar,a hammer, a screwdriver. A small handsaw and has taken a coffee break. I am just glad there are no breakable so included in this gift. It was indeed well packaged-too well.
It did arrive very fast after being ordered and the presentation was terrific. I will update if he ever gets it open.
Finally opened after an hour and a half, at least he is smiling ang chuckling. But he does not seem real impressed due to the difficulty and time it took him to open it. He said "it's cute" and a heck of a machete. He declined to give me a rating. Oh well I thought it was cute - now he has kindling for a fire and put in the camper. After all who knows what is lurking in the dark!!!
I, however thought it was awesome, great idea for keeping the zombies at bay.

I gave this to my sister and her husband as an early Xmas gift since they're both big Walking Dead fans. After paying extra for the heavy duty ducttape wrapping, I can honestly say that every dollar was well spent. One of the best part of these gifts is the presentation- it's hysterical seeing them struggle with the crowbar. They loved it and I'll keep Man crates in mind for future gifts.

For someone who is difficult to buy for, this was a total hit. He was impressed; especially since each item is something he will actually use. He laughed at the Survival Guide and said it will make for great reading in camp.

This was a "71 yrs young" birthday gift for my dad who has basically seen it all. Well, he missed one! He got a kick out of this crate and the can of SPAM was a big highlight. Took him back to the days of the nightly scheduled family dinners. Truly an awesome gift idea for those like me who were stumped

This was a gift for my dad for Father's Day. He looked like a kid on Christmas day when he opened it! He loved it and I loved it.

I got this for my husband knowing my teen boys would enjoy it, too. Hubby had fun opening it at the party, but the look on my son's face was priceless. He inched his way over to the crate, snagged the machete, and held on to it the rest of the afternoon. Now, we're all ready to binge watch the Walking Dead! LOL!

I ordered for my brother, I provided the wrong shipping info (my fault). Upon delivery I realized my error, contacted Man Crates. Not only did they track it down and get it delivered to the proper address, but offered to replace it if they couldnt correct my error, all for no additional charge! Customer for life!

This was a Christmas gift last year (2014), the contents were amazing. But opening the box that morning was the funniest thing thats happened in a long time. This crate idea is amazing. And my cousin's had an extra layer of duct tape. Was truely amazing. I've recomended this to everyone and will be picking through for gift ideas for friends.
