Jared Green founded Gear Pack in 2016. Gear Pack grew quickly and is now shipping thousands of boxes all across the U.S. and Canada. It’s still a family-run company.

“I remember seeing my wife and her sisters getting these monthly mystery boxes that came with all kinds of makeup samples, perfumes, and frilly stuff. They loved them,” Green said. “It was something to look forward to every month. I thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty cool actually, I wonder if there was something like that for me?’

“I am an avid outdoorsma­n,” he continued. “I love to hunt, fish, camp, hike, and just be outdoors. I also love learning new survival skills for both the wilderness everyday situations. I looked around and didn’t see anything great in the way of a box that delivers top quality survival, tactical, and outdoor gear, so, I figured why not try and start my own?”

Fire is one theme that seems to be especially popular with Gear Pack subscriber­s, and there’s lots of interestin­g fire-starting gear on the market. Sometimes the company decides on a theme and finds the products to fit that theme. Other times, if a company is looking to have its product included, Gear Pack might create a theme around that product.
