Designed for survival in the most extreme conditions, the Bear Grylls ultimate survival pack from Gerber is the all-weather workhorse of the Bear Grylls survival line. It features an easily pocketable multitool with 12 components, Gerber’s Tempo flashlight, a fire starter rod, and a textured plastic sheath for durable yet convenient storage.

Ultimate Survival Pack handIncludes 12-component multitool, flashlight, fire starter rod, and sheath (view larger).

A former member of the British SAS, a prolific adventurer, and the daring former host of Discovery Channel’s “Man vs. Wild,” Bear Grylls is no stranger to extreme situations. Each item in Gerber’s survival series is thoughtfully designed by Bear Grylls and Gerber to offer features that can help keep a smart adventurer alive in the wild.

The multitool has 12 components, including pliers, wire cutters, a partially serrated blade, a wood saw, a small flathead driver, a bottle opener, scissors, a crosshead driver, a piercer, and a medium flathead driver. All components lock for safety and dependability, and the tool is housed in a tough rubberized handle that’s perfect for gripping in the elements. The multitool has an overall length of 6 inches and a closed length of 4 inches, and it weighs 11.14 ounces.

The compact, rugged Tempo flashlight has an anodized aluminum body and a bright white LED light source that produces a 7-lumen output with a 30-foot distance. It’s powered by a single AAA battery (included) for up to 4 hours of run time, and the LED bulb has a life rating of 100,000 hours. In addition to the fire starter rod and plastic sheath, the ultimate survival pack also comes with a pocket guide on the priorities of survival by Bear Grylls. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Meh, not terrible… I ordered this from Amazon when it was on sale for 52.95. I got 2 of these things, one for me and the other for the girlfriend to keep in our cars. First off the multi tool is ok, not great but better than some of the cheaper ones on the market, it seems to work ok for what it is. The firesteel is also not that bad, it’s bigger than the one that comes with the Ultimate knife, it makes sparks. And the flashlight is not that bad considering its a single LED one AAA light. Mine runs for a bit over…

Reason to live After becoming separated from the group during a winter snowshoe tour last February, I must say this kit lives up to its billing. When stuck in a survival situation for few hours with any of Bear Grylls’ products, your primary motivation becomes living long enough to get your money back from that smug bastard. Hours of scraping the firestarter instead of remembering to bring a simple butane lighter fueled my anger. When the flashlight died barely halfway through the first night of peril(4…

The only other multi-tool I’ve owned is an . While I like my PowerLock, I wanted stioehmng that was lighter, smaller, and more convenient, and this fits the bill. It’s only about an ounce lighter than the SOG, but it’s nearly an inch shorter, which makes it easier to carry around. More importantly, having all the tools accessible on the outside is much more convenient than the PowerLock. Both have a locking mechanism, which I consider a necessity, but this is one area where the Gerber comes short. Unlike the PowerLock’s gentle but effective lever and flat spring, the Gerber has a sliding lock with a compression coil spring. It’s stiff and can rub your fingers raw with overuse, and I worry about how well it will hold up with age. While the Gerber doesn’t have the range of tools of the PowerLock, it does have the most important ones. The flat Phillips head screwdriver doesn’t look impressive, but it’s worked when I needed it. I haven’t tried the combined can opener/bottle opener yet, which is the other one I think looks iffy. Others have pointed out that this is identical to the Gerber Suspension Butterfly. There’s at least one difference, in that it has a rubberized grip rather than the open one of the other Gerber tool, which I consider an improvement. It may also have better weatherization, as other reviewers have noticed that it seems less prone to rusting than other Gerber tools, but that’s anecdotal, so I can’t be sure of this. In any case, the price was lower when I bought it, so the cost differential was considerably less. It’s a good tool, overall, and I’ve found it worth the price.

Gerber has gone to China Let me start by saying it is OKAY. It is made in China so the quality is shoddy. I have used it for a few miscellaneous tasks and am afraid I will break it. ALL of my other Gerber products have been made in the U.S.A. and are amazing, some have been passed down from my father to me as well and work better then this. I don’t know when Gerber sent their products to be made in China but I will not buy Gerber anymore because of it. In an absolute emergency I would use this but it would be my very…
