Adventurer Series Survival Equipment
Best Glide ASE is proud to offer our line of high quality and affordable essential outdoor tools, Adventurer Series Survival Equipment. Best Glide ASE began in 2002 with the simple goal of providing the highest quality camping and survival gear at affordable prices. Our motto then and today is “Best Glide ASE, where preparedness is our philosophy and customer service is second to none. Adventure…Survival…Life…” Since 2002 we have grown from a line of only ten items to more than 400 products. As outdoor enthusiasts, all of us at Best Glide know the importance of being prepared.
Our Wholesale Program is retailer friendly as we require only a low minimum purchase and accept many forms of payment. Our products are in demand as many of our kits and products are in use by the U.S. Military, Governments, Rescue Organizations and others.
We are constantly adding new items to our wholesale lineup, most of which are Best Glide innovations. You simply won't find them anywhere else. We would be proud to have you as our customer.

Authorized Retail Outlets
Best Glide ASE is proud to offer wholesale/dealer agreements to almost any established retail outlet either "brick and mortar" or internet based. Internet based stores must be owned and managed by the purchaser. Amazon and Ebay type sales are not permitted. We simply require the submission of your state's resale tax permit as proof of your operating status. We very much enjoy working with other businesses and hope you will give us the opportunity to show off our customer service and quality products.
However, Best Glide ASE does require that resellers advertise our products at or above the MSRP/MAP. This is done for many reasons, however most important is the protection of our dealers and retail customers. Often, a dealer will reduce the price of an item, at a loss, to draw customers in to his/her business. Though this is understandable, it is detrimental to our other dealers. Best Glide ASE reserves the right to refuse to sell to those businesses that do not adhere to this policy.
Best Glide ASE does not authorize and strongly requests that our resellers do not offer our products on Amazon, Ebay and like internet based sales platforms. Best Glide ASE reserves the right discontinue sales to a business using these sales channels or those that do not adhere to the set MSRP.
Did you know that Best Glide ASE has an affiliate program? For those that don't wish to carry inventory, the affiliate program is the way to go. Get a commission on every sale that you send to us via a website, post or email. For more information, click "Affiliate Program" at the bottom of every page, or go here.
We do our best to keep a well stocked inventory of every product we sell. However, due to unforeseen large orders or manufacturing issues, we sometimes run low. Please allow us ample time to assure that we will be able to fill your order by any deadline that you may be facing.
We are happy to extend credit terms to established companies. Due to fraud, we are not able to extend terms to companies or persons that do not have a verifiable business history, or do not have a history of successful payment with our company. Often, the completion of a first order using a U.S. based credit card will suffice for future credit terms.
We accept company checks, credit cards (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMEX) and PayPal in payment for products purchased. Our overseas business customers are requested to pay via wire transfer. Best Glide ASE reserves the right to delay shipment of items purchased by an unverified means of payment, until this payment can be verified as legitimate. This is rare, but it does occur from time to time.
If you would like to be extended credit, let us know and we will send you a credit/company information application. Much less information is needed when the purchaser wishes to make all purchases via Credit Card.
Best Glide ASE and www.wholesalesurvivalgear.com currently require a minimum purchase of $500.00, per order. This minimum order quantity currently does not apply to our affiliate program customers. Case quantities are not required. We apolgize, but drop shipping is no longer available.
Please note that we are currently reviewing our policies and the minimum order may change in the near future.
