About Bear Grylls Survival Gear
Together with Bear Grylls, Gerber makes survival tools for everyone from scouts on their first overnighter to seasoned adventurers exploring the backcountry. For survival in the elements, Gerber created a line of the toughest, most innovative knives and tools available. With just your hands, your head, and your tools, you can account for everything needed to stay alive in the wild.
When Joseph R. Gerber described his young knife company, Gerber Legendary Blades, as the "birth of an enterprise that grew into big business," it was true, but it was an understatement for sure. What had started out in 1939 as a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts had turned into thousands of retail accounts around the country. By 1960, Gerber had quickly become one of the most trusted, appreciated and collected names in knives.
After more than 70 years since its founding, Gerber continues to grow. Still grounded in the same principles that first guided Joseph R. Gerber's "enterprise," Gerber is a company dedicated to making knives and tools that combine high-quality materials and innovative designs that will stand up to a lifetime of use. The sleek, stainless steel sheath knives of the '50s and '60s (the Magnum Hunter) have given birth to today's lightweight, open-frame clip folders (the Remix). Gerber is, however, no longer just a knife company. Multi-tools, axes, handsaws, machetes, headlamps, flashlights, survival kits, digging implements--these are the newest directions that Gerber explores with the same standards of quality and design that inform their revered knife making.
What's in the Box

Cons: This leaked out of the cap when it first arrived - no matter how tightly I closed the lid. I went to my local ACE Hardware and bought an O-ring to push up inside the cap - now it's water tight. The size that worked for me was: "1-3/8X1-3/16X3/32 #45 O-RING" rubber washer/gasket Stock #35759B; bar code on the plastic packaging is: 0 3715535759 8. The cost of the O ring was $0.50.
I'd advise testing this out as soon as you receive it, and before you get rid of the shipping box.
I did do a couple modifications to help "fix the ugly" and make it more tactical and useful in a real world/backpacking scenario.
Here is what I did step by step:
1) I blacked out the orange markings on the carrying case/jacket.
2) I cut off the plastic orange cap holder from the bottom and left the top attached trimming and rounding it at about 2 inches length.
3) I centered a hole in the plastic cap holder
4) I tied 550 paracord to the bottle neck in the same grove the lip holder used to ride.
5) By coincidence and shear stroke of genius, I found that the Vinturi 5-Pack Filter Screens happens to fit perfectly in the neck of the bottle with a excellent tight fit. I recommend you get some. It's the best part of my mod.
6) I drilled a small whole into the neck of the filter and used a fishing swivel to hook to the cord (so it is captured and slide-able) and clipped the other end to the filter.
7) I tied a stop knot with the 550 and placed a 4mm brass washer on over the knot slipped it thru the cap holder placing another 4mm brass washer, then finally tying a final lock knot on top.
8) I melted the paracord ends to prevent fraying and to ensure the knot will not come undone.
9) I blackened the remaining portion of the lid holder b/c it remained ugly orange.Read more ›
Now, I know it's supposed be a minimalist piece of kit, but you could save weight and maybe even headaches with a platypus bottle and GSI Minimalist cook set. The GSI can be used in conjunction with a folding stove as well; for times when a fire isn't an option. The canteen's shape makes it harder to use on an open fire than one might think, and the handles are coated with a rubber that melts if it gets too hot, like in a fire.
Military canteens have a propensity to taste nasty after a few dozen uses, and are hard to clean due to their shape. This is true of the canteen as well, but it for some reason came tasting of chemicals and new plastic. The cup too, it smelt so metallic when I first purchased it that I was at loath to use it. A few washes later and it smells better, but why wouldn't that be taken care of before it was sold. First impressions and all.
So bottom line: nice, but better options exist.
