This kit sadly leaves a great deal to be desired. I'd have preferred to see a BG muktitool or BG scout knife in here instead of the Gerber Clutch multitool. I also would have liked to have paracord as the cordage, some first aid stuff, water purification tablets, something to hold water, and better snare wire. I was able to do a weekend survival challenge with it but it definitely left a lot to be desired and I'd like to see it upgraded in the future.

This is a pretty cool kit. The multi tool is nice and the blanket is great. My complaints are that why do u need 2 whistles? One on the zipper works much better. Only other thing is that mine didn't come with the waterproof matches. Other than that it is a great kit. Thank you Gerber for a nice kit.

This isn't a bad kit but not worth $90. The survival books included are what raise the costs. Being a survival equipment specialist I would definitely keep the compass. Do not listen to Braden about leaving it out. You don't always have time or even need to wait until the morning to get where you are going. The most important thing I see left out are water purification tablets. Other than that it's a nice little beginners kit.

This is a very good set of equipment to add to your gear to save quite a bit of space. Although, I would like to have a small bottle of peroxide and a bit of cotton for those small cuts you get that you don't want to get infected.

They should make a new one called The Pro Survival Kit with a mini compass, a better min flashlight, Paracord rope, a mini pencil, a few more cotton balls, some bandages ans bands, and last but not least tablets.
This should cost in between 70-90 bucks

You don't need a compass anyways, get up in the morning; find the sun, that's east, turn 90 degrees left, thats north, turn around, that's south, 90 degrees right, that's west, now you know.

It's a good kit very complete, small, but inclusive. It doesn't matter if the kit is perfect, people are still gonna hate on it. While yes a compass or lighter would help it is still an amazing addition to any survivalists arsenal.

It looks like crap. It is missing a couple key things that you need in a survival kit. It is missing a compass, water purifying tablets, and really any kind of first aid. It also has stuff you wouldn't need in a survival situation, like
8 of the 9 things on that multitool. You really only need a KNIFE. Its also 52 bucks for some stuff you could buy at walmart or academy for about 20 bucks or even cheaper because im sure most people can find some of this stuff sround their own house. I dont actually own the kit myself but reading some other peoples reviews and seeing what was in the kit, i already dont like it

My wife bought me this kit because I'm a huge Bear Grylls fan, and a fan of his show. I'm also an amateur adventurer. The kit itself is quite expensive, and I'm not sure that with the items included it's quite worth the price that she paid for it. I've been out into the Canadian tundra a few times on trips since she got me this thing, and apart from the matches, I haven't used it one single time. The items are of poor quality and do not justify the cost. I could've assembled a far superior survival kit with better quality items, and other items that this kit is missing for about half this price by going to Target instead. I love my wife, God bless her, but she wasted her money on this piece of garbage "survival kit".

You're better off buying good quality items separately and making your own kit that fits your needs. It would be cheaper or close to the same price but with better quality if you do. I wouldn't own any prefabricated "survival kit" if they were giving them away. Other than a prefabricated medical kit, I would stay clear of these types of kits.

its a good kit but it lacks a few important items such as a compass, what good is a survival kit that doesn't have a navigational tool? also a bic lighter might be nice, why survive when you can thrive?! a lighter will make you that much more efficient, just add this stuff if you buy it.

you could also make this kit for about $10-15 at walmart

I have been a huge fan of gerber for years but for $52, I would expect better. The survival saw is highly ineffective & breaks. It would do better to have a mutli tool with built in saw or a folding saw. The amount of para cord and snare wire is inefficient to build multiple traps. I would would replace the sewing kit with a small compass. The light is effective and bright. I would have expected iodine tablets and a water container of some sorts (plastic bag) or the kit be be made of metal for water boiling. Basically, for $52 you could buy twice the kit from walmart.

bear grylls is one of the worst survivalist is at least what he calls himself, everything is made in china, DA I made my own for $10 he is so much of a thief it's not even funny how much profit he is getting. The knife is horrible.
Eating raw eggs instead of cooking them he could get salmonella or any of those viruses and drinking his own piss, why!

I can't stand his little survival guide filled with a bunch of junk instead of a cotton ball, why don't you use the guide it works, seriously eating raw eggs, dumbass. your going to get your self get killed of viruses such as salmonella.

- There is no "perfect" kit--start with this and tailor it to your needs
- A pocket kit is supposed to be a last ditch savior, not a fully stocked expedition pack--everything will be small and less convenient
- A minimal kit in your hand or pocket is better than no kit
- Fix what is broken, add what is missing, and know your own limitations
- Learn at least 4 different ways to do each survival function, and at least one of them out of things you can find around you--bits of your kit will break or get lost and you still need to be able to survive

I've had the Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival Kit for over a year now and I absolutely love it. It comes with exactly everything you need (mostly the basic items that you need). Just because it doesn't have a compass does not mean that it is not a bad kit, sometimes compasses are not as accurate in areas with a lot magnetic fields pulling on the dial. I personally prefer to get a liquid filled compass because you will have a more accurate reading. Plus you can fit any other things inside the bag because there is a lot of room. Highly recommend this kit.:)

Overall nice kit, however its apparent the main cost is in the Gerber tool. You can get wax from a candle, the sewing kits like this come free from a hotel, the "fishing kit" can be made for practically nothing at your local Wal Mart, cotton balls are fire tinder too...good idea...obvious marketing scheme of Bear, don't own kit and could produce a better one for same compass?? What "survival" kit doesn't even had a 20mm compass at least....? Save money

've been surviving before, and I can tell you that it has everything you need except first-aid. The Gerber Clutch multi-tool is well built, lightweight and easy to carry. I have the Ultimate Serrated knife and Firestarter as well, but I can tell you that the firestarter in this kit works best, as it requires less effort to get a spark and all the sparks go one direction, not everywhere. The features are great, and it is a kit I would recommend for anyone who has a chance of getting stranded. Very well done Gerber!

Bear could have made it better. Not everyone is a professional survivalist. what contains in this kit is very cheap Made in China parts you could buy for a few bucks. Waterproof zipper doesn't seal the contents dry. Bear could have cared for his customers more like checking the actual contents we customers buy on the market. When i bought this i knew i was gonna to get ripped off. The contents didnt sound complete or the quality is a huge issue. i could instantly tell the contents has been cheaply replaced what bear maybe intended to put in. Like the multitool could have bears name. no they didnt bothered.

only bought this to support bear.

  • |BY: , Compass and knife

A lot of the comments say you need a compass in the kit but, without a map of the area, a compass does not help to much. Unless of course you know you need to go in one direction. A good compass isn't that hard to find. Add your own people. Another thing people say is it needs a better knife. The knife in the survival starter kit is very good. I also like the scout knife.

  • |BY: , Needs a Upgrade

This survival kit needs a upgrade. There are some cheap gear in this kit, like the flashlight it came with sucks. The big thing is that it's not waterproof, I recommend replacing this flashlight with the Bear Grylls Micro Torch. What this kit needs is a hefty survival knife like the Bear Gryls Compact Scout Knife and it needs a button compass. You can see that this not the best survival kit in the world but it would maybe come in handy once you replace and add some stuff to it.

Gerber is a company out to make money. They do not care about their customers. Sure they have "warrantys" where sometimes if you beg really hard they may honor them. However they sell this kit as a survival kit and you would think you should be able to count on it right? Wrong. Again its all about money for them, not about lives they put at risk because the product they sell is more or less worthless. The snare wire? Laughable but thats ok because most people will never know how to snare. Even if you do know how to snare, you have to set dozens in the hope of getting a meal. The "saw'? Will break two strokes into your work if you go after anything bigger than 2 inches and 2 inches you can break anyway without a saw. Build your own kit if you really want a survival kit. Something to many people actually walk around with a kit anyway? It means youll still likely never have one when you need it.

Granted, this kit has some major flaws, but that is a given. A kit is only perfect when it suits your needs through trial and error, but also through upgrade. Just take out pieces you don't need and replace with better ones, and be sure to find use for the unwanted, like barter or different use.

This s the worst kit I have ever used. I took this with me on a Military survival course in northern Alberta.
everything in this kit it cheaply made and either broke of didn't work well.
examples include the zipper breaking, not enough snare wire for even one snare. flash light died first day etc.
the one good thing in this kit is the aircraft signals panel, which i cut off and kept.

Fire - ok;
Shelter - conditional ok;
Signaling - ok;
Water - no container, no purification - FAIL ur dead in average 3 days. Ditch the nylon bag, replace with a titanium container + durable rubber bladder + iodine tabs;
Cordage - ok;

It is not the ultimate survival kit because it does not include:

A first aid kit
A water purifier or purification tablets
A compass
As well as other survival items that are small but make a difference when it comes to getting of of the wilderness alive.Though a lot of the items in the kit are very useful and I am a big fan of Bear Grylls I am a little concerned about malfunctions that might occur in a real predicament.

This is a ok kit, and i have the basic but customize it to contain more items. Which is a good choice so you dont have to shell out 50...
but you can also just make your own using the little water proof plastic containers with the lanyard, similar to the ones that they sell at waterparks, and make your own custom one.
However, just go basic kit and just add a couple of fish hooks and string from your fishing rod, get a mirror, button compass, and more cotton balls for an upgrade under 5 bucks

Buy the basic kit as it has lots of room to add your own stuff and you'll save HEAPS

It is a good Kit,I like it.. Unfortunately the little light did not work,so I opened it and got it going although it would not switch off. Tried fixing it but then it would not work. I would have preffered if the Bag was Green and without that garish writing saying it is a Survival Bag. It should be more Discreet and low key. I would have liked Belt Loops so it stays attached to your waist at all times just in case God forbid you drop your Rucksack down a Ravine, at least you will have your survival bag . I suppose a few Antiseptic wipes and some Plasters and a Bandage might be very handy.

Apart from these niggles it is a very good kit and the inner bag could be used for carrying Water or Distilling Water overnight in the dew in an emergency. I like the Firesteel and the extra little Whistle on the Lanyard.

I will probably put Belt Loops on the Bag,I think this is very important. At the time I nearly bought a Gerber Knife but thought it too small and seen the survival bag and got it. instead.

  • |BY: , Worthwhile Upgrade

Bought one of these to go into my Camelback daypack. It's a worthwhile upgrade to the basic kit, with additional options for shelter, food, repairs, etc. Good, light-weight stuff to take along for planned use, as well as unplanned survival needs. I added an MRE heater pouch (minus the heater card) for a water bag and a couple of water purificaton tablets. Good stuff in this kit, pretty well thought out.

If anything else is absolutely necessary, you guys can just put it in there. I had some iodine tablets and put them in a baggie, put it with my kit, and boom, problem solved. This is hands down one of the most convenient and useful kits out there, whether you're in dire need of help, or are just pretending to be Bear.
Nice work, Bear & Gerber.

Yea could use a compass but really you can use your watch as one. Look it up. And as for water purification... boil the water!! If you really need to survive that's all you have to do, but the rest is for comfort. I see this pack as being easier than what you would have to do without it but just about anyone can live with just a good knife, hatchet, and being well dressed. Nature provides all you need but we're just too lazy to make stuff these days. If you're hungry you can make a trap by chopping wood, you can make a fire starter out of wood.. yea it's harder but still. This kit is better than nothing!

I like both kits,mainly I also think iodine tablets are a must in these kits. If for some reason u can't boil your water. Then the tabs are the way to go. I'm very impressed with this whole line of Gerber.

  • |BY: , Eh, lose the light, add a compas

This is a neat little pack, most of the items are nice. The whistle is not needed because the one on the zipper is better, and the mini flashlight SUCKS. The one with my kit came with a gnarled up screw that just fell out after opening it and ive never seen it work, no matter what I do. As Bear would say, the weight isnt worth, well, anything for this item. The fish hooks are decent enough to survive, and most other items are great, I LOVE the multi tool. Ill be ditching the light for a compass, and ive tied the lame whistle to the ferro rod (why not, help ive burned myself! haha). Bear and Gerber, lose the light (we can make a torch) and add a compass. Thanks

Perfect kit for good price. Only thing i'm missin' is compass. However you can found poles by using informations in priorities of survival, included in kit. In spite of you are sometimes missin' some things, it doesnt change final feeling of this kit. I totally recommend to buy this kit.

Hands down is a pretty well equipped kit, however, most of these tools can be purchased separately in bulk and comparatively at a lower price.

BUT nonetheless you pay for the convenience I assume.

The only possible flaw with this kit is that it doesn't include a compass. Other than that this is the best kit I've seen for an affordable price.
