    Outstanding and Unique

    I bought this crate for my husband for his birthday. He loved it--the crate, the jerky, the nuts, the concept. All were top-quality products. You get your money's worth and a really unique gift with Man Crates. Excellent customer service, too.

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas. Needless to say it was almost all eaten in 3-4 days. Loved everything about this crate from the Jerky, to the nuts and mostly the crate it comes in. Will be purchasing again.

    Perfection.

    Every item in this crate is top notch. Truly excellent. We have also enjoyed the Hot & Spicy Crate and the Sriracha Crate and have discovered a few new favorite snacks through these awesome, thoroughly masculine gift boxes. My giant, manly boyfriend and I, a wee lass, have both enjoyed (and sometimes struggled with) the crate opening process as well as all of the contents immensely. I have been recommending Man Crates to everyone I know this year as the ideal gift for those who can be tricky to buy for, and I fully intend to keep doing so, as these guys have yet to let me down.

    Most importantly, though, (to me, anyway) is the truly amazing customer service that this company provides. I cannot possibly say enough lovely things about the kind, caring individuals who work for Man Crates. They truly take pride in their products and respect their customers in a fashion that is rarely seen from businesses today. I completely adore this service and everything they offer.

    You know you want to try it. Just do it. Go ahead. You won't regret it. We never have. :D

    Christmas gift

    I wanted to do something different for my husband’s Christmas gift this year instead of the same ole’ thing year after year. I stumbled across this site and I knew I had to do it! The products are good quality and he is enjoying them very much. However, do not waste your money on the duct taping like I did, a total loss of $10! There’s absolutely nothing “diabolical” or “like a cocoon” about it, a BIG letdown. He opened it way too quickly! Overall, it was fun & he likes the contents but for the money versus the amount you get, I probably won’t do it again.

    Great Choice!

    I had this sent to my boyfriend at work as a pick me up! Unfortunately. FEDEX messed up the delivery and dropped it off at a different place of business. I called MANCRATES and they sent out a new crate the next business day. While I was disappointed that his surprise was ruined (I had to ask him if he had gotten a delivery at work), I was pleased with how fast MANCRATES made things right! It took him about 10 min to get it open!! He loved the flavors inside!

    Perfect for Men!

    I bought the Caveman Crate for my husband for Valentine's Day. Wanted to give him something besides the same old boring chocolate. As much fun as it was to watch him struggle to open the very well glued crate, he got frustrated at it. Mainly b/c he is like a man and didn't read the warning instructions about how hard it will be to open that were printed on the inside of the shipping box lid. Maybe attach a tag with these warnings onto the crowbar that was included to make it easier for a "man" to see and read. Also, the note inside the crate was not mine that I wrote. The note was from a Lela and not me so I was a little upset that the note was mixed up. Wonder who actually got my note. Anywho...in the end my husband absolutely loved the crate and all the different types of jerky. Wish more was included for the price.

    Fun Gift but.....

    I bought the Caveman crate for my 17 yr old nephew so he would have something to open while my 2 brothers opened their alcohol themed crates. All the crates were loved and deeming the included crowbar not manly enough the brothers and nephew went to the workshop to get bigger and better tools. The 3 of them had a blast and lots of laughs. My only disappointment was that my nephew's crate was supposed to be wrapped in duct tape for extra added fun (we are a duct tape family). Fortunately I asked about it and it turns out it didn't get the extra packaging. The customer service was excellent, totally apologetic, refunded the $10 in addition to being very generous and refunding the shipping. I will try again for high school graduation.

    Excellent Jerky

    The Jerky in this crate was phenomenal. I would not waste the 10 dollars on the duct tape though. It was ripped and the labels were on top of it. I would recommend putting another layer over the duct tape then apply shipping labels. The crate itself was well worth it and would recommend it.

    Alright

    This was alright...not for the price....cute experience...got this for my husband for his birthday and just opened it. All of the meats were super sweet and coming from the Midwest we know meat. The shipping was outrageous. The package doesn't weigh more or a super weird shape than anything else that I get. I don't think I will get another one. But it was fun to experience once I guess.

    Fun to open

    I agree with Danielle's review. Once I saw how much this was, I was shocked. I got this as a gift and it's a cool idea, but the inside is lack luster. The balsa wood crate is cute and fun to open, but seriously what are you paying for? Maybe $40 of meat and nuts in a $5 crate?

    Could be better for the price..

    The box that arrived for my boyfriend had an extra venison jerky instead of bison. Also the venison jerky was really shiny and smooth, which was off putting. Also the duct tape wrap was dissatisfying because the mailing label was on the duct tape and for it to look more appealing I wanted to take the mailing label off and that was really difficult. The duct tape is overall very aesthetically not pleasing. There should be more snacks too.

    Oh Well

    Ordered for Hubby's bday. Crate was fun to open, very disappointed in the content. Tiny not so Paleo packages. He couldn't eat one. I could have done better at the grocery store. Oh well.

    Great Idea, Pricey for Fluff

    I ordered my husband the Caveman Man Crate "just because" and had it delivered to his office. He loved the idea, he loved prying open the crate. He felt the contents were pretty underwhelming. :(

    Man Crates brags "No bows, no ribbons, no fluff."

    Unfortunately, this Man Crate was too big for its contents, and he felt there was too much "fluff" packaging in the crate compared to the 5 little bags of food.

    Overall, brilliant idea, and it made for a great conversation piece in his office.

    Mostly paper

    The meat was good but the box is mostly just filled with paper... kinda sad I really wanted to love it

    Meh

    So half the fun of this is supposed to be the difficulty of getting the crate open, right? Well, when we opened the shipping box the lid fell right off the crate with a big clatter. Contacted customer service well over a week ago and haven't heard a thing. Luckily my husband will be able to glue the lid back on the crate so we can still try and provide my brother a challenge when he opens it. I can't speak to the quality of the food as it hasn't been tasted yet, but I have to say I'm not impressed by the volume or presentation considering how much we paid.

    Not worth it..

    I really don’t think this box is worth it and I feel you pay for the gimmick. All in all the jerky is worth maybe at most $25.. it says you are supposed to receive Crocket Creek Venison Jerky but I received Whiskey Hill Smokehouse and the nuts are $6 a bag. I got this for a Christmas present and was excited when I saw the crate. It’s a really cool idea, but when I found out what my wife spent, I did a little research and the price certainly leaves much to be desired. It’s not like you’re getting top not Jerky here.. Love the idea just think it is significantly overpriced. I’m sure the comment will be deleted but thought I’d try anyways. Thank you.

    The crate scratched my table

    The crate scratched my tabletop.

    My son and his girlfriend got me this for a Christmas gift and we sat around the kitchen table opening gifts. As a twisted and turned the crate to get an angle with the crowbar it was unknowingly scratching up our table top. Unknown to us, the nails holding the bottom of the crate on or sticking out and not countersunk or flush. Now I will have to spend $500-$1000 having a table refinished in addition to what was already an expensive gift for what you get.

    Way Overpriced

    I expected SO much more than what we received. Spending $80 I really thought there would be a sufficient amount of jerky and nuts. To say we are disappointed is the least. That's $80+ (shipping was extreme also!!!) I will never get back. Will NOT order again.

    I should have looked at the pictures more carefully

    $75 for 4 small bags of jerky (that weren't memorable or even tender) and 2 small bags of nuts. Never again.

    If you have money to burn

    This is a cute concept - packaged dry meat and nuts in a wooden crate that you have to use a crowbar to open.
    But know that you're paying for the momentary joy of opening the crate, because inside there's just a total of 8 oz. of nuts and 8.7 oz. of jerky, for $75.
