Back in February, Gerber announced a new line of Bear Grylls-branded gear. After comparing some of the “new” offerings with Gerber’s existing lineup, I pretty much dismissed the entire lineup. However, taking another look at the lineup, there are a few good buys, such as the basic survival kit.
The Gerber Bear Grylls basic survival kit includes a partially serrated Paraframe mini knife (~$11 via Amazon), an emergency whistle, waterproof carry pouch, fire starter with striker, waterproof matches, snare wire, and cotton ball fire tinder. For less than $20, that’s a pretty darn good deal.
Normally this is the type of kit I would prefer to put together piecemeal, but that would likely be near impossible for me to do for less than $25, excluding shipping.
