Customer Reviews on Emergency Kits Gerber 31-000701 Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit
Ultimate Survival System For Non-Outdoorsmen, February 7, 2012

I'm not much of an outdoorsman, primarily because I have this belief that almost anything that exists in the wild has the sole objective of stalking me, killing me, and eating me in a horribly painful and drawn out fashion. I also don't like being in the sun for too long, nor do I enjoy temperature fluctuations to any extreme degree. My sense of direction is atrocious, to a point that if I were to walk my dog into the 1000 square feet of forest behind my apartments, I would have to rely on her to find our way back home, or hope that I happen to come across a fellow dog walker who could guide me. When I am more than five miles from the nearest gas station, I start to panic because if I run out of fuel, I'm not sure my office-chair-weakened-legs could handle the collective ten mile hike to the gas station and back, half of which I'll be forced to carry two gallons of gasoline. My fingers hurt after carrying milk up a flight of stairs to my apartment, so I'm sure you can understand my concern.

Naturally, for a person in my situation, it made sense for me to find a survival kit that would essentially solve all my problems if I were stuck out in the wild after a plane-crash or a long night of heavy inebriation surrounded by bad friends that would find it funny to dump me in the middle of a swamp and see how I faired. It's always a good idea to be prepared for everything. So, I started looking for a kit to help ensure my survival for the 45 minute window between me calling the national guard and their arrival at my location thanks to cellphone triangulation.

When I saw the Gerber 31-000701 Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit, I was immediately intrigued for a number of reasons. With my lack of environmental training skills, I had to make my assessment based on factors that I assumed would be relevant in the middle of nowhere. The first thing that caught my eye was the Gerber title. I knew nothing about Gerber products, but being a rational thinker, I knew that Gerber Baby Foods had been running a GerberLife life insurance campaign for babies. This means that Gerber clearly has something invested in the continued survival of babies because life insurance is all about keeping people alive long enough that you don't have to pay out for their untimely death. That made me feel pretty confident.

Then there was the 31-000701 bit. I'm not good with product numbers, but then I automatically assumed that this was the 31st edition in its 701st round of production. Those seemed like pretty good numbers to me. This product has gone through 31 different versions, giving it plenty of time for field testing. I'm assuming that after the research had come back on all the people that failed to survive using this kit in editions 1-30, Gerber must have worked out most of the kinks for round 31. The fact that they have produced 701 separate batches of this product seemed promising to me as well, but what was more promising was that they left enough space in the numbering system to produce 999,999 batches! That's a high aspiration for any survival kit, and that was enough to sell me right there.

The next part that really caught my eye was the Bear Grylls name. Now I've seen his show a few times, and I have to say I'm not a fan. But don't let that discourage anyone! There are two important factors involved here that most people would simply glance over. First, "Bear." That's a heck of a name. Bears are exactly the reason I don't like going out into the wild. They will hunt you, kill you, and eat you, most likely from the feet up to your head so that it's more painful. Bears are mean like that. Second, Bear Grylls is absolutely and completely insane. The guy puts up in a hotel by night, then goes out into the wild for a day of filming just to get naked, drink his own urine, and eat a few bugs. That guy is nuts! I don't usually trust crazy people to keep me alive, but this guy lives off a diet of his own pee and what I can only assume are deadly poisonous insects. And he does all this naked! That's what I call a survivor.

Finally, there was the Survival Series Ultimate Kit. Survival was what I was looking for, and it was right there in the title. This isn't the "Near Survival Series" or the "Hopeful Survival Series." This is the guaranteed straight-up Survival Series. How can that be better? Well, it's the Ultimate Kit. It just screams continued existence in threatening situations.

Obviously, I purchased this kit and waited intently for it to arrive. When it did, I put it aside and never touched it again. I was going to put it in my car just incase I drove off a cliff or ended up in the Land of the Lost, but something was on the TV and I was pretty tired. It's also important to note that the kit doesn't contain any urine purification systems or any tools effective enough to remove the poison glands from deadly insects before you eat them. I'm considering both those things a win.

I am still alive today as I write this review. Things are looking up, and thanks to all the little nick-nacks that came in the packaging, I have even less intention of wandering out into the wild anytime soon. I can only assume that my survival is thanks to the Gerber 31-000701 Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit, and my complete lack of desire to ever use it.
