I bought this kit the other day and I'll give an evaluation of the contents.

The Knife: It's small. It came pretty sharp. Anyone with common sense won't count on using it for chopping or splitting, but it will cut some line and you could probably use it for eating/cutting meat, among other smaller tasks. I've used it to make small feather sticks and it works out fine for that too. For me, more than one knife is the way to go. Keep this one for the smaller stuff and it's not bad. Seems to be built solid enough.

The Firesteel: I've tested it a couple times, and it works as intended, i.e. it helped me make fire. I carry another one and keep this one as a backup.

The Snare Wire: I don't know if I'd trust this for a snare (especially if I had other options) but it's copper wire. Might find a use for it.

The Cordage: Simple, potentially useful for small tasks like lashing a knife to a stick for spearing, etc. Or lashing for shelter, though you're probably better off with 100' of 550 para for shelter building.

The Whistle: It works as intended... you blow in it, and it makes an ear-piercing sound.

The String: Some kind of waxy string is included. I don't know what it's intended use is, but I assumed it was for hanging the whistle around your neck. Or something.

The Matches: They make fire. You strike them on the included strip and they combust. They're not strike anywhere but if you were careless enough to lose both the firesteel and the strike strip for the matches, you don't deserve a fire...

The Cotton Ball: It's emergency tinder. I've used them and cotton pads before successfully. Keep it dry.

The nylon outer pack: It's nice. It's bright orange so you probably won't lose it unless you try to. Ripstop.

I'm going to be honest. I like Bear Grylls, he does a lot of cool stunts for a lot of cool causes, and I like Gerber. I've had a few Gerber knives and each one I've kept until it eventually disappeared after years of use and sharpening. So I guess you could say that I really wanted to like it.

Unfortunately, I didn't like it well at all, let me explain. The pathetic wire was so small I lost it almost immediately, and the string soon disappeared as well. I did get to use a little bit of the rope, but it also was a little on the too-small-to-be-useful side. The knife is solid feeling and comes razor sharp, but it's TINY. So small that it's incredibly awkward to use for anything. All weekend I had Crocodile Dundee in my head saying "you call that a knife?" I didn't use the matches, which I'm sure are just average waterproof matches, and I always use those. I chose instead to give the fire starter a shot. It worked right away (awesome!) but I was surprised when the sparking material rod fell out of the plastic holder twice. I hot glued it when I got home, so no big deal. The whistle is a whistle, it whistles.

All in all, the important survival-kit bits (the firestarter, the knife, the rope, the whistle) were serviceable and, if you had to, you could probably make it quite a while with this kit. So it gets 3 stars for being what it says it is at a fair price with some neat branding. For me, though, the only thing making it into my real survival kit is the firestarter, mostly just because it's cool (and has 'Bear' signed on the striker :) ).

Where to start? Well the knife is not well made. I dulled it on the first pice of wood I carved. The "snare wire" is no good. Dental floss is stronger. The water proof matches work, but are not strike anywhere. The strike strip is hard to work with as well. Also the matches are not in a case so on your fist fall or drop they would be no good anymore. The only thing good in the set is the fire starter. It works just fine. If you are looking for a kit to use out there this is not it. But if you are looking for Bear G stuff to collect here it is. Just not a practical kit for the money.

This kit is not perfect or made to address all survival scenarios, that is why it is called the Basic Kit. However for $16 you get a decent knife with a small serrated portion that is great for cutting line or light sawing, locks solidly so it doesn't fold on your hand and closes so you don't impale yourself. You get a fire steel with a striker that works and would be sufficient enough to light several dozen fires if used properly with tinder. The bag is waterproof and has a zipper. Inside that is another heavy duty plastic bag that has a ziploc closure that can act as a water bag or cup or food storage bag. There is a length of 550 cord, floss/heavy thread and a bit of wire for repairs or snares. Matches of course, which are stormproof and come with a striking surface. True they are not strike anywhere, but strike anywhere stormproof "lifeboat" matches are no longer made to my knowledge, kind of like incandescent light bulbs eliminated for your safety, so it is what it is. There is a serviceable whistle and survival instructions in the bag. In a pinch the paper could be used as tinder.

You can fit more in the bag like a micratool or a small sewing kit or bullion cubes or a button compass. Throw in some dryer lint or a chunk of fire starter. But hey guys for $16 there is a lot of value here for a day hiker not expecting trouble, a hunter, or someone needing a little glovebox kit or for scouts learning bushcraft. I don't think it would be easy to build this kit for less than $16 on your own. I would keep in mind that this is an emergency kit. It is made to help you survive an incident it is not made for heavy use. It is incredibly light and compact. I bought a couple of these kits and put em in my glove boxes.

For $16 this is a great kit.
