BattlBox October 2015 boxBattlBox is a monthly tactical and survival gear subscription box. Every month you’ll be shipped a selection of gear all themed around a monthly mission or survival/tactical scenario. BattlBox does have three levels of subscription, we received the “Pro Plus ” Box to review.  I want to be very clear that, although the monthly theme is fun and playful, this box contains REAL knives and other tactical gear — it does not contain toys and is not appropriate for children.

Due to a shipping error (not BattlBox’s fault), we just received the October Box. And it was awesome!

We have to agree – Zombie was an awesome theme for October.  It fit right in with Halloween, and it was a great way to work in some cool items from the burgeoning zombie-themed survival gear market.

The knife itself is single-sided with thick spine and handle.  A flat-edged (thick, unsharpened) sawtooth design in on the base of the spine and the butt.  Both side of the knife are decorated with a green skulls pattern.

Wazoo Survival Gear DIY Zombie Paracord Bracelet ($15):  This is a fun DIY/craft item!  The finished bracelet holds a length of paracord for emergency use, as well as ceramic-bladed flint starter lodged in the buckle.

The enclosed razor blade can be used in conjunction with a lighter to make cut-aways in the outer sheath of the cord, creating a cool rotting flesh pattern.  Two styles of dual-colored cord are included.

Zombie Survival Sardine Can ($16.50):  This waterproof tin is super-light and compact, keeping over a dozen useful survival items dry and safe until needed.  The can itself can also be used as a heatable, waterproof (except for the big opening) container.

Zombie Tinder ($8.95):  These wax bulbs have a wick and burn for over 10 minutes each, allowing you to ignite less-than-perfect tinder.  And the box packing material is great tinder!

SOG Survival Hawk Tomahawk ($32.99):  This tomahawk is pretty badass.  It features a 3″ blade with pointed, dual-edge striking tip.  The tail has a wire puller/breaker.  The handle houses the full tang construction and is wrapped in glass-reinforced nylon paracord for comfort and grip.  The base of the handle also holds a ferrocerrium firestarter.

The Survival Hawk has a lifetime warranty, and it doesn’t say anything about zombies voiding it, so we’re good to go.

This box was really awesome and had lots of fun items with great usefulness.  I was completely surprised to see the Survival Hawk and MoraKniv in the box — what incredible pieces of hardware!  Too cool.

We think any survivalist or tactical gear aficionado would be happy with any one of the BattlBox levels, but the Pro+ is pretty awesome!
