I would like to take this opportunity to express my greatest appreciation for your website. You have (in my opinion) THE very best survival resource inventory that I know of. I mean it is so dead-on target. Everything you offer is absolutely the most useable, viable, and practical stuff. I couldn't outfit myself completely without your helpful offerings.. Just apectacular. Thanks!
Well done! I am really impressed with the huge selection of useful, practical and impressive gear. You have on your site, some things I have been looking for and couldn'e find anywhere. I always enjoy an opportunity to find a use for small itens in ultralight packs. And again, my hat's off to you for doing such a great job with your website!
Thanks for the order. I enjoyed finding your site. I have been putting together my bug out bag for several years, and your site offers some of those tasty bits that I really don't NEED, but are fun to have to get things just right. If I were rich I would order one of everything you sell, just to play with it.
I wanted to write and thank u, John and all your crew for the amazing store you have. I received my order yesterday and couldn't be more pleased with the speedy delivery and the overall products. This is my first order from you and I guarantee it will not be my last... Again, thanks for the great products and excellent service.

I love your website! It is very user friendly and you carry some of the best products with affordable prices. I recently received a large order of your products and was very impressed by the excellent packing of each item which were all so neatly positioned in the shipping box. My compliments to your company and please keep up the good work!
I sincerely appreciate the quality of the products in my last order and the promptness of the shipping. The care and concern for your customers survival is quite obvious. Thanks and you can bet I will be shopping here again and will spread the word to my backcountry friends here in S.W. Montana. Best Regards from Paradise Valley,
Hi. I just wanted to say thank you! I got my package yesterday and everything was beyond my expectations. With prices so low, I was honestly expecting cheaply made products that probably would not last very long, but that is not what I received at all! The products were great, the prices were excellent, and shipping was very fast to Pennsylvania. I have already recommended your website to several friends. I love that your website has so many different types of empty containers available. Most sites offer kits but I like that you guys also have the option of just containers so people can build their own custom kits. Great job. Survival Resources has earned a returning customer!
Your web site is easy to navigate and I really like the gear modification page. It's a nice personal touch. I like doing business with smaller private companies. Thank you!
Received my gear yesterday. Thank you very much for the quick delivery and quality gear. Looking forward to placing my next order.
I received my package on Saturday, and just wanted to thank you for sending it so quickly. I will be departing tomorrow for another deployment, and I am pleased to have these items to take with me.
Again, thanks for your super quick service. I appreciate it, and will most certainly be back again.
Love the site. Great prices too!
As usual, thank you for the great service, excellent products, and competitive prices. God bless you all!
I can't thank you enough for the great service on the last order! You have a customer for Life!
Thanks. I will be ordering again shortly. I just wanted to let you and your husband know that you have the best website on the internet and the things you sell are incredible. Keep up the good work.
Just finishing my second read of your book, "Build the Prefect Survival Kit." Found it refreshing and very informative. Been using it to redesign some survival kits I put together. Also, I have bought some the products from your website, top notch goods. Thanks."

It was an honor to speak with you the other day. As I said, your husband is 7-Star and your operation is first class. I thank you for the order and there will be many more. Again thank you and it is a pleasure to shop your web-site. My best to you and your husband and all at S/R.
Thank you Folks for such good service and products!
Greetings from Australia,
Just a short note to let you know that my order arrived in excellent condition (considering the distance traveled). I will now get another order together... Excellent gear, great service, very pleased.
I received my order today, and I wished to express my thanks to you for quickly filling my order with products that are exactly what they are advertised to be. Keep up the good work!
E. Rider, 103D ESC, Balad, Iraq.
You guys have the best products - keep up the good work!
John, Denise and crew,
Your site is fantastic! Your work on the kits is incredible. Thank you all so much for your work and continued efforts in preparedness skills. I spread the word about your work to all my friends and family. Working hard to bring them into the fold. Preparedness is not an illness, it's Insurance! Thanks again!
Thank you very much! I'm very happy with your excellent service and quality products.
Dear Mr. McCann,
Today I received my order. Thanks for the excellent quality. Btw. The Handling Fee and Shipping Expense was very low! Till a next time.
With kind regards,
Koos van Doorn
You probably heard this before, but I had to drop you a line myself and compliment you on an OUTSTANDING SELECTION OF GEAR AND AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! I was really impressed to see the grid readers. I grew up in Wisconsin as a young man hunting, trapping, fishing, hiking and camping. I also served with the 1ST Cavalry Division in Iraq. I like to think I have gained a lot of knowledge along the way and that I have. However, knowledge is a never ending, life long pursuit and having a site to turn to such as yours to keep up to date on things is a great asset!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK,
I LOVE my products I got from your site.. thank you very much. They shipped fast, and are great products. I will order stuff from you guys over an over again.
I just received the second shipment. No problem re not combining the orders - that was my fault for not investigating your site more thoroughly before I placed the first one. I'm very pleased with how quickly these were shipped and with the quality of the items and the very reasonable prices.
Many thanks and take care,
Hi John and Denise
I just wanted to write to thank you for such great service and products. I have been ordering survival gear for about a year now and making kits for home, work, auto, personal and outdoors and just recently found your site. Your products are such high quality and I have been receiving them so quickly that I wanted to let you know. The prices are very reasonable.
I am also impressed with the way most items are individually packed/bagged and boxed so securely. You might be surprised how some vendors ship items -- all rolling around in the box!
John, I just started reading your book on building kits, and though some people might consider this topic dry, I am really interested and find the reviews great. I wish it were the first book I bought on survival. I would have saved myself some money.
Thanks again and keep it up!
You friend in survival,
Good Morning Survival Girl,
Your web site is excellent. Say hi to John for me. Loved his book. In the last few months I have ordered a few items from your web site. I would just like to say what GREAT SERVICE I have received. The items almost always arrive in about a week and I never hear that dreaded word BACKORDER. I love the Plus Survival Kit I ordered for my backpacking and kayak fishing trips I make. I even ordered and extra Survival Kit to be part of EDC kit I have with me always.( I read John's book on his EDC kit )
There are a lot of survival guys out there selling things on there web sites but it's really great to finally find someone who has gear in stock and has a efficient shipping ethic. Keep up the good work and I will be ordering things in the future.
Be Prepared To Survive
Great selection of the Very Best Lightweight equipment. Thanks!
Hi Denise and John,
I received my parcel last Friday from the post office but I didn't get to open it until last night...helping a friend do some work on a house he bought out in the country.
Everything arrived safe and sound... nice packing job, and all the products are great. I will be doing more business with you again in the future and you'll have my highest recommendations to anybody that asks.
Thanks, Dennis - Canada
Thank you for providing such a wonderful wealth of current survival information. I've recently started my interest in emergency preparedness and survival and discovered your web pages. I was amazed that some tried and true advice now needed to be changed because of your and others' research and practice in the field. I am now in a way trying to do the same.
I have created a Facebook page about survival notification for the people of San Diego County. It started up as a no-cost alternate communications tool to allow people who live in San Diego County to broadcast to the world that they are okay if a disaster of some sort hit the county again, much like the wildfires back in 2007. Since then, it is getting some nudging from members of the forum to also include other things, including advice on emergency prep and survival.
Again, thanks for being the wonderful and clear-explaining experts you are (I am amazed how many experts in differing fields don't know how to teach...) and please keep up this good work!!

Thanks Again! I like to order from you guys.
Thanks for the prompt shipping. The Package was in my PO Box this AM. Just got home and opened it. The Patches look excellent, great Sun Burst. I like the Mini-Figure 8 Rappelling rings. They'll hold a bunch of stuff. Might Need Suspenders & a BELT to keep my Trousers UP!
Semper Fi! TO John, thanks for the OTTO-GRAPH! His Hand-writing is nearly as bad as MINE!
Thanks for the great products and the quick and efficient shipping.
Great notifications and tracking, too. I'm a repeat customer for sure.
I wanted to write a note to thank you for your help and products. Your suggestions about natural tinder were right on - that fluff from the reeds went up in nothing flat! Your products are great. That mini-match is just super - light, works great (what a set of sparks) and the Tinder-Quick catches real nicely.
And your service was wonderful. Answered my questions, got the book so you could ship it to me with the rest of the order, and very pleasant. It's been a joy doing business with you - and I'm sure it won't be the last time.
Package received. Thank you again for your diligence and help. Also, thank you for offering a wide selection of unique survival equipment. I have found John's book, "Build the Perfect Survival Kit" an excellent resource. This book is what lead me to Survival Resources. Thanks again!!

John & Denise,
I stumbled upon your book 2 weeks ago in the local Borders and snapped it up at once. What a great read! Well done, and so helpful. I love finding innovative, thoughtful solutions to real-world problems. Thanks for putting all that info and experience into print.
Imagine my surprise, then, when I stumbled onto your website while looking for items you mention in the book! Another gem. Thanks for putting the products, reviews, and advice in a one-stop shopping spot.
Grand Junction, CO
I appreciate your concern. I would like to place my order and I whole heartily approve of your method of charging shipping. I am not used to being treated fairly when ordering online. I have just never dealt with a mail order that was weighed and charged accordingly to weight & destination. What a concept; Honesty & Fairness. Too bad there are not more businesses like yours. I thank you and hope to do more business with you in the near future.
Sincerely A Happy Camper,
Great selection of items and great prices -- Thanks!
I have enjoyed and learned many useful skills and methods from both of Mr. McCann's publications. Thank you very much for sharing the wisdom and knowledge gained through years of hard work and study.
Good information is priceless.
This was the best survival course I have ever taken. It met and exceeded all my expectations. You and Denise were knowledgeable, funny, and made me feel right at home. I now know the proper way of making and using a bow and drill to make fire. Great Experience!
Hi Denise and John,
I'm still reeling from the absolutely fantastic weekend!! That was a truly exceptional time! Thanks again for a great weekend. It was truly phenomenal!
Gratitude is the memory of the heart, and from my heart to yours, thank you for making this weekend GREAT and one that I will cherish always! Looking forward to planning my next adventure with Survival Resources! My son and I just loved this experience.
John & Denise,
Thank You! The entire course was excellent and I'm thrilled that I now understand declination. It was a great weekend; Informative, Practiced, and Fun! Your enthusiasm, knowledge, and easy going natures made this a wonderful course.
Great starter course! I will probably take more advanced classes. The instructors were pleasant and always there when you needed them. I would recommend this course for every person. It should be mandatory for all High School students!
Thank you for the fun weekend. I hope to use the knowledge I have learned soon. I will see you again at another course.
John and Denise,
The best parts was the navigation and traps and snares! I had a blast and learned important survival skills. This was exactly what I had hoped for!
Robert (Dan) Mustin
This was a great experience and I really enjoyed the challenge. I will definitely take other courses to continue my education
John & Denise,
Just want to say thank you for the great skills I've learned and for an amazing weekend! And Denise, Viele Danke for the burgers, beans and franks!

John & Denise,
I really enjoyed the course. Some aspects were a little difficult for a 65 year old woman, but I still learned new things. I appreciate the assistance when needed and I felt welcome when I arrived. It's a lot of material to digest but I know you have our survival at heart. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
