Bear Grylls Gear

As we reported last month, Bear Grylls (he of the broadcast television hit “Man vs. Wild”) has designed a knife for Gerber. The “Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife” — a $60 uber-blade that I reviewed here — drew a slew of comments on GearJunkie as well as a few emails. Lots of passion, positive and negative, surrounding this Grylls guy!

Some more news now for the Grylls lovers and haters. . . In February, Gerber will ship a complete line of “Bear”-inspired products, from a multi-tool to a machete to a survival kit. We haven’t got our paws on these items yet for a test. But for the Grylls fans out there who can’t wait, here’s a sneak peek on a few of the to-be-released Bear-branded products. Let us know what you think!

The big knife is cool but it’s exactly like the LMF that Gerber makes! I have it and love it. I also an a huge fan of Bear Grylls but you know what, I really feel like he sold out on this one.

A bunch of this BG branded gear and the new Bear Grylls iPhone app (not universal and $6 or $7?!) leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

The Bear Grylls gear I expected to see is stuff like: – the S4 survival knife by Bayley Knife
or the – GI Spec canteen cup

I’m disappointed. BUT, if some of this gear turns out to actually work well and hold up well, then maybe I’ll look more into them. Feel like doing a torture test Mr. Regenold?

I have the craghopper pants that he wears… they’re amazing! Best pair I own for outdoor adventures… I’d imagine these items would be great too.

Do you have that parang on hand?
Is it awesome?

“Parang” – does it make that sound when you strike it against stuff? ‘Cause if it does, then I want one.

I think the Kukri is a better jungle knife than the parang. More balanced for chopping + a back end (near the handle) that is easier to keep an edge for more delicate work. Also it just looks sexy.
