Everything in the box!

The first thing I saw was this Handyman Folding Lockable Limb Saw.

It’s quite a long blade (8″), but I feel like the handle was a bit flimsy and cheap (it’s made of plastic).

But I tried it in my backyard and it was good for pruning as long as I was holding it by its base (where it rotates) and not by the handle. It’s convenient to carry around without fearing it will cut through everything.

SlideLock Carabiner by Nite Ize ($3.99). This is not for climbing! It’s made of aluminum, so it’s very light.

It has a locking mechanism, a simple piece of hard plastic. This is perfect to hang keys, but not strong enough for my bottle of water.

Vapur Water Bottle (0.7L, $11.99). This Anti-Bottle can be reuse, folded, frozen, and is dishwasher safe. It’s easy to carry around and when you’re done with it, just roll it and it can fit in a pocket!

The top is screwable for easy cleaning or filling. So convenient! I use a lot of water bottle, and this one is the perfect addition to my collection for day hiking! It’s light, versatile, and easy to carry around! Fun thing, once you put a bit of liquid in it, it stands up like any other bottle, and doesn’t tip over. Win!

Gerber Hunting’s Myth Hands Free Light ($31). A headlight that gives you a bright white light, and that you can control the direction (up and down). It comes with an elastic band that can be adjusted.

I love headlights! It’s so practical for when you have a flat tire in the middle of the night, on a dark road ( I’ve been there), or for any other repair you need to do in darker spaces (like going in the attic). Instead of asking someone to hold the flashlight and they just can’t get the light right, you are in control!

I didn’t even turn the light off for this picture, just to show how bright it is!

Kershaw Shuffle Knife model 3800WMX ($24.99). For the price, it’s a pretty neat knife.

It was a bit stiff to fold and unfold at first, but it got better with time. You can put a lanyard at the back of the handle (when I go in the wood, I usually put a length of orange surveyor’s tape on my knives so I can find them if I drop them). There’s also a bottle opener on the handle!

The handle is too small for my hands, I feel like it’s going to slip off my hands at any moment. I also find the metal used for the blade too soft for my needs. I’m just soooo picky when it comes to knives! I don’t like this knives, but my husband claimed it. He actually likes the weight (too light for me), and the size. Good for him!

UST Lightweight Storage Dry Bag – 5L ($7.99). Ideal to keep valuable, food and other items safe and dry. This storage bag is water-resistant, with a rounded base.

The top closure is just to band that closes together.

It can then be rolled and secure in place with a quick release buckle. The material seems sturdy and indeed water-proof, but I’m not sure if the closure is 100% water-proof, especially if the bag is fill to it’s capacity and you can’t roll it more than one or two times. But it’s a nice storage bag that will see a lot of use!

Over all, I’m pretty impressed with this Primal Outpost box. It has a nice variety of items that can be use in different situations, either for a camping trip, or at home. I really like the headlamp and the water bottle, and my husband has a new knife that he can carry around instead of having to borrow mine!

    We were really looking forward to being a customer of Primal Outpost. However, we have received a total of one of the 6 boxes from our subscription in DECEMBER. It is now the end of March. I have reached out on multiple platforms and have received a total of one replies which apologized and blamed USPS. While this may have been true for the first box (and we were very understanding) I find it unexcusable that nothing else has arrived and zero communication has been had since.
    Can anyone advise on how they handled paying and not receiving shipments???

    I’ve emailed them twice and they sure did take my money. Going on my second month and ready to give them a call to take my money back. Not happy with them at all

    Ordered Gift Box on 9/21 with Priority Shipping and they took my money THAT day. 7 Days later, no order received and it STILL says “Processing” on their website.

    No response to my email requesting an update.

    Makes me wonder how much they really donate to Vets – one of the reasons we went with this company.

    STRONGLY sugggest thinking twice before buying form them
