Good for you... it's a great diminutive multi-tool which should be included in everyone's carry tool kit and bug out back.

Thanks for reviewing this. Since it's hard to find a current menu listing anywhere I was able to put your review to good use by seeing the contents of this ration. I've tried a few foreign rations and the CR1M from Down Under currently stands as my absolute favorite. I also love that they still use cans of fruit and cheese, it reminds me of the C Ration. Adds a nice touch of variety as well! I only wish these rations weren't so darn expensive and hard to obtain otherwise I'd buying a ton of these!
If we don't study the mistakes of the future, we're bound to repeat them for the first time.

I'm glad my review came in handy. The price is a little on the higher end, I wish I could stock up on them like I do the Canadian IMPs

As I'm a believer of the free enterprise system (or what the market will bear)... would love to get my mitts on a CR1M (Fred)... sadly, current prices are out of reach of this retirees wallet. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Trying to get one for anything under $100 will require the greatest explorer in the world! Not to mention how hard they are to come by. There's currently a listing on eBay for $105 coming directly from Australia. Not a bad deal if I do say so myself. There's 4 available so it'll be interesting to see how quickly they get bought up. No affiliation, just passing it along. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Australian-Army ... SwceNZVJPM

I'm really surprised no one has snached then up yet. I would have, but you had too many other rations on sale that I haven't tried yet so I had to get those first. It was definitely a hard choice!
