The power of prepared

We believe that even though external factors drive change, we can still be prepare, adapt, and overcome.

Why Bear Essentials?

Our team has always been known to prepare, but with the pandemic and store shelves empty, we noticed the lack of affordable survival products on the market. Everything was extremely niche, from unique tropical dehydrated fruit blends to Chicken Tikka Masala (that cost about $20 per serving), it was abundantly clear that prepping was NOT affordable and achievable to most Americans. YouTube gurus were flaunting their $250k custom bunkers with a food surplus to feed an army, while the average family (most living pay check to paycheck) could not achieve the same peace of mind. This is how we were born. 

The Past

Bear Essentials Survival is veteran-owned and Michigan Proud small business. We were founded in 2020 with the intent of making affordable and effective survival products for veteran preppers, outdoor survivalists, and the average family alike.

The Present

During our first year, our 15 Day Emergency Food Supply quickly climbed into the top 10 products of the Emergency Food Category on Amazon with almost a perfect 5 Star Rating. During that time, we have given thousands of families and experienced preppers peace of mind knowing that they are covered in case of emergencies. 

The Future

We will continue to bring affordable prepping supplies and survival gear to the market. From bulk instant coffee with a shelf life of 25 years, to pantry basics, and survival gear, we've got you and your family during these uncertain times.
