You’ve probably heard of him, but Bear Grylls is a British TV survivalist known for his show Man vs. Wild among others. He’s been doing his thing since 2006, entertaining and showing off his SAS survival skills. A merchandising and marketing department saw it’s opportunity…

The results were clear cut in some instances, and surprising in others. Check out our comparisons and feel free to weigh in with any experiences you’ve had with the gear:
