I want to say up front
That the majority of the photos you’ll see from here on in were taken by me here at my home and have not been altered or enhanced in any way. I mention this only because far too many times over the years I’ve been fooled by pictures of products on the net. Somehow on sites like Amazon and others they always manage to make things so awesome in pictures. You order a product online convinced you’ll be getting exactly what you saw in pics and when it arrives what you end up with is a disappointment to say the least. The point being, I hate that shit and wont allow it on Planet Prep you really can trust the pics you see here.
My two Paracord grenade survival kits arrived in a padded envelope regular mail. I was pretty happy with how fast Survival Frog got them to me. From the day I ordered to their arrival it was I think 5 days. As you can see in figure 1 they come packed in clear plastic with a Survival Frog business card detailing the items inside the kit. The grenade itself is about 3 in long by about 1 1/2 wide with a 2 inch carabiner.
A word of warning
Should you decide to get one for yourself, do not remove the survival kit inside to check out the contents. I know it’s hard to resist the temptation of handling a new piece of gear but if you remove the kit you will NEVER get it back in. believe me, I spent at least an hour trying.
The Survival Kit
You know what they say about good things in small packages. The kit inside Survival Frogs paracord grenade is no exception. The tiny plastic box you see in figure 3 and 4 may only be a little over 2 and 1/4 inch from end to end but it’s life saving potential is at least several times larger. the main focus of the kit is fishing, with line, hooks, sinkers, floats, swivels and a piece of tin foil that could potentially be used for bait you’ve got everything you need to catch that fish dinner. Once you’ve caught that fish you can use the included large X-acto blade to clean it and the flint and cotton tinder to make yourself a fire and cook that guy.
the outer kit is made uo of a total of 9 feet of 55o lb paracord. Broken down to its 7 inner strands gives you just over 60 feet of usable cordage.
Please check out the video below for a closer look at the contents of the kit
Depending on Where and how you buy these guys the price varies quite a bit. On Survival Frogs Ecomerce website 1 kit will set you back $17.97 regular and $9.97 on sale.
While paying $9.97 for one of these would be money well spent we’re very happy on Planet Prep to be able to offer you 1 Paracord grenade survival kit for free with only $3.95 shipping and handling and beyond that first freebie for $6.97 with additional discounts the more you buy.
Over the years I’ve owned a lot of mini survival kits similar to this one. All to often they’ve been ridiculously expensive for the size and made up of mostly cheap and inferior components. I’m happy to report that Survival Frogs Paracord grenade survival kit is the exception to the rule. With high quality 550 lb paracord on the outside and a surprising amount of above average tools on the inside this little guy definitely has the goods to help get you out of a bad situation.
