Name the gear you'd like more info on.






I've done the best to identify everything bear grylls uses in each episode. But Bear is always on the move, and if you see something that's not addressed here you'd like identified, leave a comment and I'll get right on it. Thanks for reading this blog and best of luck surviving!

UPDATE:


Come checkout the New WildMan Forums! at http://www.wildmanforum.com!

We've tried hard to identify EVERYTHING that Bear uses. It's a bit hard to follow up with every post on here, so we thought we'd reach out to our awesome fans (over 500,000 visitors this YEAR! THANK YOU!) and tap into your passion to help everyone live a wilder, adventurous life.

Please stop by the forums for MUCH more of Bears gear ID info, posts for every episode and more! We plan to add more info, but if you see anything missing,feelf free to add to it, thanks and we'll see you there!

 Thanks again for reading this blog and best of luck surviving!!

  4. Mark:

    Good question, It's hard to tell for sure in some episodes, because the film crew has a habit of not focusing on the brand or logo very close or often. But he did offer a backpack called the BreaPac via Craghoppers only in the UK. In the US it's not available and might be out of production all together too. I'll do a post soon on the backpacks Bear uses. Follow the RSS feed under "Subscribe" at the top right to see the post right when it's released.

  19. Hey, nice info page!
    I noticed you only listed the Merrel shoes.
    Here is a link to his army boots.
    He was often wearing the standart black ones "Lett Marsjstøvel"

    I guess in his new episodes (Northern Australia)
    he is wearing the Tropestøvel. I m not sure about
    the brown ones, maybe Merrel too D:

    Heres a link to the page where you can order
    the boots.
