No Frills Man Fun!
I was looking for a manly Valentine's Day gift, and came across a link for Man Crates through Pinterest...and some other site... And let me tell you it was worth it to dig for this site! Now bookmarked for future orders! My boyfriend loved the crate and I got a "Best Girlfriend Ever" text while he was at work. I had it delivered to him there, and he had a crowd when opening it. Even some of his coworkers were like "Oh you got a Man Crate! OPEN IT! OPEN IT" He's been enjoying the jerky one bag at a time and so far LOVES the teriyaki! He even wants to order some direct from them!
Had a slight hiccup with delivery, but ManCrates has the most wonderful customer service and shipped me a second crate for the right delivery date. They were wonderful!

I was searching so hard to find a Valentines Day gift for my guy. I didn't want to get him so mushy gushy frilly gift, well, because he is a guy. I stumbled across Man Crates website and just knew that I'd find something for my guy. Low and behold I did. I got him the Cow-pocalypse crate. It was perfect for Valentines Day. It's like a box of chocolates for girls except it's a crate of beef jerky for guys. Thanks Man Crates!
The ONLY thing I regret is not getting it gift wrapped in duct tape. Next time.

He loved it .. and me.
Whenever you get an "I love you" text right in the middle of the workday, you know you did something right. This gift will do that for you. I'll refer to friends and definitely order other crates. I can hardly wait for the next occasion to do so.

This is the third man crate I get for my husband and he loves them. You guys are awesome. I also have to say I called in briefly to customer service with a question and you all are on top of your game. This company has a great product and service. Keep up the good work.

I ordered two Man Crates, this one and the Bacon Lovers crate. First of all, the customer service is first rate. More companies should emulate you guys. Second of all, the men in my life loved the crates and the items inside. In fact, they are hoarding them away from me. Thank you for such an inventive gift that was well worth the money.

Best Guy Gift
Well Fed Ex screwed up my first order and it was lost or stolen. I emailed the guys at MC and they wasted no time getting my order resent. I can not express the awesome customer service I received. My son and hubby thought it was the coolest gift! I personally had fun watching them both opening the crate. Spot on guys!

I have now bought these for my husband and both of my sons. Needless to say - they loved it! My oldest son had his delivered this week and he didn't wait until Christmas to open it! I finally found a gift my guys all love!

Hubby & His Co-workers Loved It!
I watch the Blaze TV channel and the Pat & Stu Show advertised your crates. I thought it would make a cool gift for my hubby who was going to be offshore on our anniversary.
He said the crowbar "laughed" at opening the box. He had to get a crescent wrench to hammer the crowbar into the top edge because it was nailed & glued...lol
He had an audience before he broke into it and every one got a kick out of it. He said some of the guys headed out saying they were gonna go order one for their Dads.....lol
Much thanks to all of you for this great product & "man-ly" packaging and I wish you continued success!

I wanted something a little different this year, and thru social media stumbled on this website. He absolutely loved this gift since he is a jerky fanatic. It was fun watching him use the crowbar to break into the stash. I will be a repeat customer, but I suspect next time the element of surprise will be lost to that of excitement. Btw- he loves the meat and said it is great.

I wanted to do something special for my husband and stumbled upon this amazing site on Pinterest. Atlas, I have found gifts to send to my kevlar wearing, tactical guy, meat eating husband. His crate arrived exactly on time, actually a couple days early! When it arrived he was ecstatic and really enjoyed that he got to open a gift with a crow-bar. This gift truly suited him as an individual especially with different types and flavors of the best jerky man crates has provided. Thank you Man Crates and I will continue to order from you guys.

THE FRICKIN' BEST THING EVER!!!
I wanted to send something to my husband at work and, after being disappointed at florists' sites because I wanted manly gifts to be delivered, I searched the internet. Thank God - Man Crates appeared into our lives and I know we'll never be the same! He loves this crate, so full of yummy beef jerky. Actually, he wasn't at work when it was delivered, but got it in the morning. Every man at his office went to the Man Crates site to see what it was about and to try to guess what he got. Men were standing around his desk asking him to open it, watching with anticipation like boys on Christmas morning! I've been tagged as the "Best Wife Ever," but I'm just happy that my husband is enjoying this so. Will buy other kits, too, just to keep the love and envy flowing. Your customer service is unsurpassable and I'm thrilled that, as diabetics, we can switch items out for candy in your gift packages. Love this concept too. I'm glad you exist and am proud to be a part of helping y'all grow. Keep coming up with additional choices, please. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Great gift for the Guy who has it ALL
My dad is incredibly hard to buy for - but he loves Jerky. The packaging was incredibly entertaining and added to the uniqueness of the gift. Of course the best part was that the Jerky (so far) has all been really high quality and very tasty. Would totally order again.

Crate was broken
I ordered the cow-pocalypse crate as a gift for my husband. I was very excited for him to open it so I broke down and gave it to him early . When he opened the cardboard box the crate was broken so he didn't get to use the crowbar. Disappointing since it was a Valentine's gift.
The beef jerky was great and we are really enjoying it.
A little sad he didn't have to struggle to open it.

It's a cool concept, albeit a pain in the arsenal to open, the crowbar you get does no good. I had to get my saw out to cut the super strong adhesive. Unless you don't care about the crate afterwards, in which case, tear the sides apart to open. If the point is to make it hard to get inside, well done. However, that aside, was it worth the price? No. I could have bought all the jerky included in the crate, for about half the price elsewhere.

Not worth it for Canadians
I purchased the cowpocalyse crate for my fiancé for his birthday. It wasn't until I was checking out that I realized the price had doubled because I live in Canada. I purchased it anyway because I knew my fiancé would love it, but it obviously wasn't worth it at double its price. He loved it though.
MAN CRATES EDIT:
Hi there Teddy! I'm sorry you feel the price was a bit expensive for the shipping. We do include all costs associated with shipping to Canada in the cost of shipping (customs charges, general and provincial taxes, tariffs and duties). We try to offer a great value for our service and most of our orders to Canada are delivered within 5 business days. We do not ever charge a penny more on shipping than what FedEx charges us to ship, and if there is ever a problem, we'll be here to help. Glad to hear the recipient loved the crate!

Wish it was better...
I bought 3 different crates for Christmas for my loved one, this particular crate was for my husband. First, he opened it in less than a minute, literally popped right off. Second, the meat itself was very disappointing. The meat was very gelatinous and not very jerky like, the quality just wasn't what we thought it would be for this price. Maybe we got a bad batch, all I know is he ended up throwing out a good portion of this xmas present and I felt so bad because this was his big gift from me.

Too easy to open
He loved the idea of it, but too quickly figured out the easiest way to open it. Wish the glued side was also stapled. For the money, I don't feel there was adequate amount of product. He enjoyed it, but the value isn't there enough to order from this company again.

Not so much
Took 30 seconds to open and that was the disappointment. The jerky looks to be good, has not been opened yet. Although we thought the concept was pretty cool, I would not order again. Just trying to be honest. The fact that you purchase products without MSG would be worth 5 stars. Thank you for that.
