Snares may be invaluable in any survival situation as man does not live by bugs alone/ There are 3 very good examples of snares in this kit.

When I read the description on this product, it states "Easy to use, and comes with illustrated instructions". These illustrated instructions are about 1" square, which is too small for me to see what the picture is about. Also, there is nothing about how to use the snares. The instructions are more about how to preset the loop size. This is something that I can see is important.

The snare material appears to be rugged enough to do what it was designed for. I would have given this product 5 stars. However, I removed 1 star for the too small illustrations and another for not adding a couple pieces of paper showing how to use the snare in real life. After all, this is suppose to be a survival snare kit!

This is a great started kit but one can purchase more snares for about the same price. Quantity is survival in this case. I would purchase more rather than this little kit. Concerning the snares, they are of good quality and take loading well. Purchase more from the company but not this kit.

Do yourself a favor if you're thinking of buying something like this - buy some #2 picture hanging wire and some swedges. Do a little homework on noose snares. Build your own for a fraction of this cost of this package.

the "instructions" were a bit lacking but you can learn how to set them and stuff on you tube.

arrived quickly and included everything it says it does.

I have yet to take these snares out in the woods so I can only rate the actual materials and the instruction sheet. I have used snares made of fishing line and cord, but never with steel cable or wire, so I do know a little about using snares.

The wires and light cables look to be of pretty good quality. The other metal pieces also look well made. So, materially these snares look to be well made.

The instructions and illustrations are something else again. The written instructions are a bit confusing to me mainly because I've never used the metal flanges and when I tried to use them to set a loop I failed miserably. Maybe if a couple of illustrations with step-by-step instructions were included I would have done better.

The other thing about the instructions is that they are small. I had to use a magnifying glass to really read them. Once I did read them I was still uncertain as to how to make and set the loop. I'll be looking for other instructions on the 'net later on.

This kit is also good to show you what materials you can use for snares so that you can carry them down to your local hardware store and buy more materials to make more snares. The more snares you set the greater the chance of catching something. You can probably get the basic materials cheaper than this kit cost.

I would have given this five stars if not for the tiny and confusing instructions.

Bottom line, the materials are pretty rugged but the instructions are lacking.

I had only ever made one snare and it did not catch anything. Snares may be invaluable in any survival situation as man does not live by bugs alone/ There are 3 very good examples of snares in this kit. It also gives instructions so making your own additional snares os easy. This kit is ideal for survival kits. I learned a lot and I recommend this kit.

Great for my survival pack as it almost completes the 2 week get away pack. Great quality and just what I needed as it is small, light weight and compact.
