Cairn Box | January 2017
The Hiking Subscription Box
I’ve been wanting to try Cairn Box for ages, and I decided I’d finally pull the trigger this year. This is a subscription service for outdoor activities that you’re able to customize a bit. Since most of my activities are hiking-based, this turns out to basically be a hiking subscription box for me. So far, I’m super excited about the products sent in this fun subscription and thought I’d share the goodies sent in my January box.
My Cairn Box contained a great assortment of items this month including:
- Craft Thermal Gloves: these gloves have touchscreen compatible fingertips that worked really well when I quickly tried them on my phone. I thought these were just going to be another pair of standard, black, touchscreen gloves until I saw the design on the palm. Rather, the entire palm (not just hot spots) is covered in these great looking stripes that I assume help with grip but also just look really great, almost like patent leather. When subscribing to Cairn Box, you fill out a detailed survey answering questions about interests, sizes, etc. I’m happy to say that these gloves fit……..like……a glove. 😀
- deFunkit Hand Wash Pack: I’m intrigued by this. Apparently using this system eliminates odors from clothing for three months. I’m looking forward to trying this and seeing if it can stand up to its claims!
- All Good Goop Healing Balm: Honestly, I don’t really “get” healing balms and have never purchased or used one before, so this seems like the perfect time to take the plunge. Another product that makes some pretty big claims, so hoping it can live up to them.
- Phive bar Blueberry Bar: I already tried this one out on Hike 1 of my 2017 52 Hike Challenge. Not bad! Generally, I’m not a fan of date-based bars like this (think Lara Bars). However, considering that this was tasty and really helped give me a boost when I was seriously dragging, I’ll give it a thumbs up. While I probably won’t run out to buy them simply based on my preference, I would absolutely recommend these to people who do like this type of trail snack!
As with most subscription boxes (it seems), I also received coupon codes to use towards the purchase of these and other products sold by these companies. Additionally, Cairn Box is running a promotion right now for 50% off of your first box with code “JOINTHEFUN”. I’m not sponsored or an affiliate or in contact with Cairn in any way, I just noticed the code while on their website today and thought I’d share!
In conclusion, I’m really pleased with the products and value in the two boxes I’ve received. Hoping for this to continue through out the year!
