    Great present for new fathers! I sent it to my buddy thats in the Army. Please give a warning that a "strange package" is coming in so that you don't alert anyone. (I added the diabolical wrapping) He absolutely loved and so did his wife! Awesome gift! I will be using man crates again!

    My buddy loves it!!!

    Hasn't had a chance to use it yet but he was stoked! Baby is still on his way. The bag is of great quality and the items it comes with are hilarious and useful. This is my third purchase from Man Crates and all my friends love their gifts. I look forward to any new ideas your team comes up with and plan on doing business with you again and again.

    New Dad Tactical Bag

    New Dad was severely impressed, loved the whole package. Thanks to my powers of prognostication, it actually arrived on the same day as the new baby! I have one suggestion: We knew for months, as most parents/grandparents do, that the new kid was female. Your package is obviously intended mainly for boy babies. I think that you should also have a choice for a girl-oriented baby package. Maybe pink camp blanket and cap. My son is already very worried about his daughter's future social activities. Maybe a book of self-defense for girls? Great job!

    Perfect for any new Commanding Officer

    I got this for my cousin, and he enjoyed it so much he unpacked it and repacked it three times. The fact that he had a girl, though, makes the mustachifier a bit weird, but also a bit funnier. His wife got a kick out of it, too, so there's another win. I haven't heard any complaints about it being faulty or anything of the sort, so it must be a quality gift.

    Made my surprise perfect

    I used the baby bag to surprise my husband and tell him that we were pregnant. I loved everything about the bag for the most part - it included a lot of cool little goodies that made the surprise perfect. However, I thought the bag was a bit small for a diaper bag and the pockets that zip and are covered by a flap are hard to access due to the design of the flap. If we decide to use the bag for its intended purpose, I will have to get the flaps resewn closer to Army standards to make the pockets easier to get into.

    But where's the crate?

    Got this for an office coworker. As a first time dad he truly appreciated it. Even my husband (a veteran father) commented that the bag was very cool. Overall - this gift is awesome (and highly recommended) but I was sad it didn't come with the crate that the majority of the other gifts come packaged in. I think that's part of what makes these items so unique.

    Great Idea

    I ordered this gift for a friend about to be a new Dad. It was fun, funny and well appreciated. Love all your gifts and have sent many to the guys in my life be they relatives or friends!

    nice looking bag

    The bag was a gift for a new Dad.- he loved it! It's not your traditional "Dad" bag. Wish it was a little bigger

    Mission Success!

    Awesome gift! As a retired military Grandpa, I completely approve of the items in the 'New Dad tactical bag'. I had it delivered the same day as the baby shower, so my Son had something to open for himself. I especially like the attaché as a diaper bag (strangers not sure of your mission!).
    This gift would be perfect if it was delivered in a crate!

    Great Idea

    A group of us bought this for a new Dad-to-be, but were VERY disappointed that it did not arrive in the typical "Crate" with crow bar as the other items we have purchased from ManCrate. Took away much of the fun at a party we threw for the new dad.

    great concept

    Loved the gift idea, but when I received it, I wasn't expecting the bag to be so small. If it came in one of the tactical boxes. I would say it was well worth the money.
    Selected two day shipping, received my order next day. Thank you!

    Great gift but wish it came in a crate

    The bag and contents were awesome! They were a big hit at our office baby shower. I was only disappointed it didn't come in a crate. The crates are amazing.

    Great Christmas Present for MANLY DADS

    I just found out that me and my significant other are expecting our first child. He's quite the Alpha male and has spent the last 18 years in SF in the Army. I thought this was the perfect unexpected gift I have yet to find for him. There was one thing that I was a little disppointed in, which was the packaging. I opt'ed for the Diabolicle Duct Tape packaging for an additional $10.00. It did not arrive wrapped in the tape, just in a box. Because of the boring packaging of the item, half of the fun of this gift was taken away. I envisioned his eyes growing with anticipation day by day of how he would attempt to destroy his christmas gift, and pondering what instrument would enable him to do so. I attempted to call the contact number to ask for a refund on the packaging, but after wating for close to 30 minutes on hold, I've given up hope. BLUF: Great gift for military/hunters. Just don't get your hopes up on packaging or getting your money back.

    **Man Crates Edit**
    Hey Jessi- sorry about your totally unusual experience with the missing packaging and the long holiday wait on our phone system. We searched our order system to try to find a way to contact you to get you a refund on the missing duct tape wrapping. If you see this give us a call at 1-866-902-7260 - James

    excellent customer service!!!

    I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my husband in the beginning of December, only to realize that FedEx lost the package two days before Christmas! Being on bed rest I panicked in fear that my husband would have nothing to open on Christmas morning. I called and e-mailed MC and they immediately got back to me on the phone and by e-mail! They overnighted another package and we got it on Christmas Eve! The bag was a bit smaller than I imagined it but overall it was a huge hit and my husband loves it! Thank you MC!

    Not impressed

    Bag is too small. The other reviews had me thinking it was spectaular but not so impressed especially for the price of the limited amount of contents.

    Apr 3rd 2015

    Guess I didn't read the description well enough--I thought all Man Crates came in crates, basically that seems to be their whole thing and how I thought they could justify the price for their product. The new daddy package came in a common cardboard box, not a crate. Nothing special there. The tactical bag is also small and doesn't seem like it will be all that useful to a real dad with just as much stuff to carry as a mom with a diaper bag. Price is WAY too high for what comes in the box.



    Hi Pam,

    I am so sorry to hear you are disappointed that your order did not come in a crate. We do have a few items on our site that we sell which do not come in crates. On each item's page we try to let you know which items are not in crates in a few ways.

    Under the "add to cart" button we have written "this item ships in a tactical bag" as well as including a picture beneath that of how the item ships. On the cart page before you process your order we have also included this message and another picture of how the items ships under the item listing on the cart page as well.

    That being said, we know it still can be a bit confusing and we'd like to try to help make this right. Give us a call at 866-902-7260 and we'll be happy to see what we can do for you!
