Pros: Overall Quality, Materials Quality
Cons: None
When I ordered this, I first intended to order the bigger survival kit that's just less than 40 bucks, however they didn't have it in stock at that time, perhaps next time. Glad I did order the small kit though. It's a nice compact survival kit. For less than 20 bucks you can't beat it & you can't go wrong. It fits inside my cargo pants pocket nicely. The orange is nice as it makes it east to find in any wilderness situation, or not. On the back of the orange pouch it has signaling instructions on it, that alone is worth the cost, as it can help save a life. It should have had para-cord come with it instead of some kind of cheap white bootlace looking string, but oh well, it will do in a pinch. I got plenty of para-cord anyway. Pocket guide is handy especially for the forgetful or the novice. All of the gear works well. Good deal!

Perfect survival kit!
This is a great survival kit for the price: all contents are quality and the kit itself is a super small size! Let's face it, what are the chances you will need the contents of a survival kit when hiking/camping/hunting etc.? Not likely, but it is a necessity nonetheless! So the fact that it'll fit in a pants pocket or take up negligible space in a pack is a great quality to have in a survival kit. Plus it's got Bear Grylls' name on it, so it's GOT to be AWESOME!!

Good start for...
...building your own kit. No, im not a Bear-Fan, but the stuff in this kit iss quite good. Ok, a mini-led-light, a button-compass, some more tinder, a space blanket, a tin foil vessel or some inner tube can be added to make the hole thing complete. But the knife itself, and the firerod and the pouch are good. The rest is, like in all survivalkits the same. By the way: The first thing that went to bin was Bears survival advice ;). ..um ein eigenes Kit zu basteln. Nein, ich bin kein Bear-Fan, aber das Zeug da drin ist doch brauchbar. Ok, eine kleine LED-Lampe, ein Knopfkompass, etwas mehr Zunder, eine Rettungsdecke, eine Alu-Schale zum Falten (Kleine Leberkäsform...fragt euren Metzger...grins) oder ein Stück Fahrradschlauch kann man gut noch reinstecken. Ansonsten sind das Messer, der Feuerstahl und die Tasche gut, der Rest ist wie bei jedem fertigen Survivalkit. ÜbrigensL: das erste was rausflog waren Bears Survivaltipps ;) All in all worth the money... Insgesamt kriegt man was für sein Geld...

Okay, but not great
Better than nothing, but its is much better to just build your own, like a Altoids tin, or if you would like you can build off of this kit adding or taking things away to meet your needs, okay kit, worth the money and would make a pretty good gift.

Not bad but needs more
This isn't a bad kit. However, I would swap the mini Paraframe knife for a BG folding scout knife (the pocket one. Not the little mini scout). I would also like to see some tinder quicks, water purification tablets, paracord, and maybe an inflatable water container.
