I've not used my kit yet, but assembled everything just to get an idea. The first issue I had, was that the box came with two left sided gloves. Making one useless. The carry bag is okay, but nothing is impresseive about it in terms of construction. I will have to say the same about the tree strap. It's just your basic strap.
Now on to the good. What I am impressed with, are the tensioners and chain as well as the hooks and D-shackle. Everything seems well made, and the included hardware is also of high qualiy. We'll how they all hold up when put to use.
If I were looking for a recovery kit, I'd probably build one up, instead of a package deal. You'd end up with a better kit in the end.

Useful accessories, but check the box...
The accessories in the Hi-Lift kit are very useful and make winching much easier with your Hi-Lift jack. On the downside, the gloves in my kit were poorly sewn with exposed holes. I had to exchange them for this reason and found this to be the case in two other boxes, forcing me to mix a set... [...] Also, an entire bolt was missing but I didn't discover that until later. Hi-Lift was quick to respond and sent me a replacement part on their dime, but it was a little disappointing to find multiple issues with the quality control of these kits.
Hi-Lift Jack's parent company Bloomfield Manufacturing was founded over 100 years ago and today Indiana-headquartered Hi-Lift produces jacks capable of lifting, winching, clamping, pulling and pushing. The Handyman or Sheepherder's jack was the Hi-Lift's original name and jeepers trust these accessories out on the trail in a variety of scenarios. Their trail jacks offer a rated capacity of 4,660 lbs. and a tested capacity of 7,000 lbs. and they are lightweight and easy to maneuver. We also carry tow straps and jack mount kits as well as storage options for trail jacks. Rely on a brand that has withstood the test of time to withstand the tests that come with off-roading.
