Many kayak anglers not only like fishing and kayaking gear, but also outdoor and survival gear. We decided to check out Battlbox subscription box to see what goodies they include in the subscription, and if the gear you get is worth the price.

For our first subscription we choose the basic box. Next month, we will have the Pro Plus Knife Of The Month box. We’ve broken down what is included in each box level and priced the items on Amazon for comparison, and here are the results. Before we get flooded with comments and emails saying, "You can find these items for less!" these were the lowest prices when initially researched.

Basic $24.99

BattleBox P-38 P-51 can opener

P-38 GENUINE US MILITARY ISSUE SMALL CAN OPENER $0.79

P-51 GENUINE US MILITARY ISSUE LARGE CAN OPENER $1.02

BattleBox Survival Signal Mirror

STARFLASH SURVIVAL SIGNAL MIRROR $4.99

BattleBox Survival Fire Starter

GERBER STYLE BEAR GRYLLS WATERPROOF SURVIVAL FIRE STARTERS $9.99

BattleBox Survival Blanket

EMERGENCY SURVIVAL BLANKET $1.17

BattleBox CRKT Eat N Tool

CRKT EAT N’ TOOL $4.63

Cost if purchased separately - $22.59

$2.40 cheaper to buy yourself

 

Advanced $49.99

  1. FM 21-76 SURVIVAL MANUAL $8.99
  2. GI SPEC LENSATIC MILITARY MARCHING COMPASS $5.59
  3. TACTICAL 3-MODE 300 LUMEN FLASHLIGHT $12.95

Cost if purchased separately - $50.12

$0.13 cheaper with Battlebox

 

Pro $99.99

  1. AQUAMIRA FRONTIER EMERGENCY WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM $6.97
  2. ROTHCO DELUXE SOLAR CELL PHONE CHARGER $39.99

Cost if purchased separately - $97.08

$2.91 cheaper to buy yourself

 

Pro Plus KOTM $149.99

  1. KERSHAW CRYO II BLACKWASH $31.39

Cost if purchased separately - $128.47

$21.52 cheaper to buy yourself

As you can see from the items listed, BattlBox does have some cool items in it. For every option but the Pro Plus KOTM, it was technically cheaper to purchase all the items separately. However, when you include shipping and handling, the BattlBox was actually cheaper.

We ordered the Pro Plus KOTM and we’ll see next month what we get and if the contents are worth it.

    • I went with the Stealth rod holders on my yak and love them. Well made and keep the spinning or casting rod secured but yet easy to get to.
