Free Survival Gear
A lot of people are looking for free survival gear. Luckily, we can take advantage of free gear offers from certain companies.
One of the latest marketing techniques that survival gear companies are using is to give away a free item with the hopes that the person who takes advantage of the free offer will become a long-term customer.
Most of the offers below are structured in a similar way. You pay the shipping for a free piece of gear or training and the company hopes that you’ll be impressed enough to continue to buy from them. If you like their products, then feel free to become a customer. If not, at least take advantage of the free survival gear they’re offering.
We’ll add more free survival gear to these offers as we find them or more become available.
