BattlBox 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 information card lists the items and the values of each one. The Basic BattlBox runs $24.99 per month + $5 shipping, Advanced is $49.99 per month + $5 shipping, and the Pro is $99.99 per month (free shipping). There’s also the Pro + — for an additional $50 per month you’ll receive the “KOTM” – The Knife of the Month (aka the Kickass Blade of the Month). The box shown in this review is the Pro +, a $280.37 value for $149.99!
Zombie Paracord x 100′ ($10.99): 550 paracord in a bright green and black houndstooth. There is no shortage of uses for this stuff.
Zombie Paracord Bead ($25): A cool zombie head. Use it to count pace or decorate your gear.
Zombie Survival Can Energy Drink ($5): A high-caffeine beverage to keep you moving. The back of the can has some fun suggested uses to get the most out of the can in a survival situation.
Zombie Outbreak Response Team PVC morale patch ($7.99): Made of strong PVC, this patch is durable and light. The back is covered with velcro to allow easy sticking and removal.
Zombie Hunter PVC morale patch ($4.95): Similar construction as the previous PVC patch, with a zombie in the cross hairs design.
Wartech Biohazard Paracord Wrapped Zombie Knife ($14.29): When wrapped, the paracord makes a comfortable handle and pull loop. It can be removed if needed for other uses. Comes with a heavy-duty nylon sheath.
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!
The can contains primarily USA-made survival items ranging from first aid to food and orientation essentials.
Zombie Target Poster ($9.50) A big poster target featuring an undead. Only headshots count, of course.
Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Carbon Steel Fixed Blade ($62.94): This carbon steel blade is awesome. It is coated in corrosive resistant black, and has rubberized contour handle for sure grip. The durable sheath has a firestarter “flint” kit that is good for 7000 strikes and throws 3000 degree sparks.
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.
Included is a hard case to protect the blade and yourself.
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!
