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.

    Laughed & Laughed watching him open it!

    Awesome gift I gave my adult son for Christmas. He's home for HBL & enjoyed this gift very much. The fire starter did break the 1st time he struck it....we got a good laugh out of it. Everything else seems to be fine. The shovel/hatchet set....I want to keep.

    Great gift for a TERRIFIC son!

    Happy trails to him....

    After a near decade of working alongside a person whom I deeply respect, completely adore and hold on a plain that no other relationship exactly fits on came to a sudden and abrupt end upon his announcement of retirement. I scrambled to put together something for him to send him off and to show how much I deeply cared for him. This gift was part of that. It was a bit spendy, but was presented under the ruse that it came from other colleagues as well. I opted for the devious cocoon of duct tape wrapping to add to the fun. It seemed to be a perfect gift for him; an avid backpacker, camper, hiker, geologist-loving dude whom would be doing a lot more of these activities in this newest stage in his life. Due to unforeseen circumstances of the evening (read: me being an awkward emotional spaz-case) I didn't get to witness the present opening in person. Pictures were captured of the big reveal, and later sent to the colleagues thought to be involved. He seemed to enjoy it, the novelty of the crate and literature inside, the frustration of opening the crate, and discovering tools he can hopefully use on his new journeys. Sadly, this was the last time I got to see him. He suggested a slow fade instead of good-bye. I suppose I was the only one whom didn't fully understand that I would not see him again. Except for those pictures.....pictures of him opening this man crate. This is all I have. And I treasure them.

    Approved by Picky Boyfriend

    I bought the Outdoor Survival Crate for my boyfriend as a Valentine's Day gift. He is very picky with the things that he likes; he doesn't impress easily. I had to make sure that whatever I got him was "awesome". This wasn't just a gift; it was an experience. It was a heck of a lot of fun watching him try to pry open the wooden crate with a mini crowbar, and then watching him drag everything to the garage so that he could use "bigger tools" to open the crate. You could see the gears working in his mind as he pulled and pried his way into that crate. And then when I showed him the "opening instructions" on the ManCrates website ("Try Harder"), he laughed... which never happens. He loved all the tools and gadgets.

    I will definitely be ordering more products from ManCrates in the future! Thanks for making the gift-giving process a lot easier!

    Man Gift

    For Christmas I bought the "Outdoor Survival Crate" for my 23 year old son. Had some buddies over for Christmas, drinking beer, deep frying turkeys, shooting prairie dogs and riding snowmobiles around the property. Man stuff. Retired to the man cave for a roaring fire, dinner and more beer and my son opened the "Man Crate". He loved it and lost interest in opening anything else. Five stars? You bet. Six if they'd let me. No guy would be disappointed with this crate.

    Quality is lacking

    The packaging and whole idea behind this is fun, which is what prompted me to buy it. The contents, however, are of rather poor quality. My husband kept the firestarter and glow sticks but said the rest was not worth keeping. Might be worth the fun of the idea for $40 or $50, but not for $110.
