The MOLLE pouch is awesome, can't find anything like it on the market and is perfect for all those "extra" tools.
The reason you have to have credentials is because this is a combo pack that has been made for a US Gov't contract. There for they are unable to sell them to the public until a preset date aligned in their contract. No reason to be spiteful, if you want one so bad find a member of the military befriend them and have them order one for you, if you ask them nicely they may just give you the one they were issued.
This is an amazing kit, that should be given to every Soldier enroute overseas.
best military kit in use I am a vetran and this is great
Love the Gerber credential aspect. I have many Gerber tools that I have received from the Army that work well in my firefighter side of life. KEEP IT UP
The 'credentials' request is a marketing ploy to get civilians to think Gerber is the REAL DEAL. Some nice stuff, sure, but it's not SOG Blackhawks, etc. that silly BG logo made you a lot of money in the civilian market so just be a civilian market company.
Very good piece of gear to have on DEPLOYMENT!
As far as I'm concerned this is a great kit! As for the restriction I'm assuming it's a packaged deal made for the MILITARY. So no military or dod certs = no deal for you.
I see a lot of complaints about certain items, like this one, not being available to the public. To those people I say please stop whining. Gerber gives special consideration on certain items to the men and women who serve this country and their communities as their way of saying "thank you" for our service. The items that require credentials to purchase may not be any more dangerous or much different from the civilian offerings, but they're tools that service men and women count on in their everyday duties. This kit, in particular, was out together with that in mind. Anyone can probably find the items to purchase separately and build their own version of this kit, or alter the contents to make it more suitable to their daily wants/needs. But this was put together as a convenient offering to our service people, and I don't see how anyone else can really feel good complaining about not being able to purchase it. To me that would be like arguing with a store about why I'm not allowed to park my vehicle in a handicapped parking space. Yes, this is a very cool item. Yes, it may look awesome on your bug-out bag for all you "preppers" out there. But I'm sure if you want something like this, or any of the other "credentials required" items, with the exception of auto knives, then you'll be able to think up something similar for yourself. But please, stop complaining and try to see the good in the fact that this company is showing appreciation to their customers in certain occupations.
I have been looking for a good flashlight multi tool combo heck take out what we cant have add a fire starter and sell to public or just sell the holstet ill make my own combo till then one star
what about this kit should be restricted to the public I am a responsible citizen and I would like to know why I am restricted to this
This is one of the coolest kits i have ever seen, but just because you use it in the military does NOT mean i is dangerous, if you don't make people have credentials, you would make more money.
My brother is in the Army and I would love to give him this for a gift. I guess I will have to just give him the money to buy it himself.
This kit looks great. The guy that reviewed it seems pleased. I could really use this going to the range, camping, bush crafing and just have it to throw in the car when ever i might need it. To bad i cant buy it. What are credentials anyways? Oh well. Gerber you could be making money on me but instead you choose not to sell it to me.
This kit is a is a very useful, I have used it to work on my simulation devices, it is a very versatile kit, by having the various tools items within it, it has made it easier to do my job, instead of carrier a bag of tools with me, I have just this one kit with me while I do maintenance on my weapons and with proper maintenance to the tool it remains a very effective tool for maintaining my weapons. I strongly recommend this to any Military, Tactical personnel.
