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 :) ).

First my background. Missionary Pilot, been through a formal aircrew survival training course at Emergency Response International ([...]) an excellent 5 star course. Completed a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course with Peak7 Adventures (another 5 stars). I am not a survival expert or even an outdoors person in particular, but we have just enough of my fellow pilots out there need to need use this equipment and training that its really good to have it, and know how to use it (98.6 + WTS = Survival). Personally, as a pilot, I hope all of my investment in emergency training and equipment will be a big waste of money and time, (ie... I will never have to use it).
We have emergency survival and medical kits in the aircraft that I am trained on both in class and in the field (in the woods, over night on a wet/snowy 45 degree event in WA). But, its nice to have just the pocket "essentials" for those other days when you wonder off on that hike, and for whatever unforeseen reason, need to spend an unscheduled overnight in the great pacific NW woods.
I purchased this kit as it seemed to be a good deal for two items, the knife and the metal match, both will complement my real pocket kit nicely, the other stuff, not so much. Let me evaluate each item individually.
The good
Gerber Knife - seems to be a good folding knife, small (about 9cm x 3cm x 1cm) I have not used it with a baton to cut wood yet, but it should do that in a pinch. (watch your fingers!)
Gerber Metal Match - works well, nice thickness, perhaps a little large for a pocket kit, but that's OK as I will use this part of the kit often to start campfires etc...
The bad
Pocket Survival Guide- Chock full of useless and misinformation, does not tell you how to the equipment in the kit.
