Fathom Quarterly Subscription Box Review #TRV01
Fathom is one of the newest Quarterly curators, and this is their first box. Here is their bio from Quarterly:
Fathom is the website for passionate travelers – whether they’re jumping on a plane tomorrow or planning a new adventure. The Fathom Quarterly box is packed with their favorite, time-tested can’t-leave-home-without-them travel products.
This box was sent to us early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Fathom Quarterly Box
The Cost: $100 (plus $8 shipping)
The Products: Items to make travel easier and more fun.
Ships to: US and Worldwide (Additional shipping costs for International subscribers).
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they were selected. The theme for this box:
The cool and clever products in this collection will make you a better traveler, a smarter packer, and the most unruffled person at the airport.
DUBS Acoustic Filters – Value $25
These DUBS are new to me – and they get great reviews. They are designed to minimize noise pollution without interfering with sound quality. So they should work great for concerts, airplane sounds, etc.
BAGGU 3D Zip Bag in Mint Stripe – Value $8
This is my second green and white striped baggu bag this month! (They other one is thanks to the March Kloverbox). I love all things baggu, so I’m happy to have a matching set!
URSA MAJOR Travel Kit:
Face Wipes (3) Value $3.60
Face Balm (.5 oz) Value $12
Face Wash (2 oz) – Value $10
Ursa Major is one of my favorite brands – and it is a men’s line! They make all natural grooming products, and many of the items work great for women too. (Like all three items sent in this travel kit). My husband absolutely loves the cleaner, and I love the herbal scent of the face balm. It’s a little more lightweight than most face balms, so that’s perfect for Spring/Summer weather. And individually wrapped face wipes are always a win!
Flight 001 4-In-1 Travel Adapter – Value $25
The design of this travel outlet adapter is brilliant, and it gets great reviews on Amazon too. Now I just need to travel outside of the US!
This Is Ground Cord Taco – Value $10
This leather “taco” hold headphones, charger cables, etc. I received a set of three in our February Birchbox Man, so I’m personally not too excited about this item – but I think it is an appropriate inclusion for the box.
Fathom’s Games for the Road
This little folded card includes 4 games to keep you from getting bored. (They designed it to fit within the deck of cards).
SOLA Playing Cards – Value $10
I’ve always like the colors and designs from Sisters of Los Angeles, and I’ll store this extra card deck in my suitcase.
Artifact Uprising Instagram Friendly Photo Book – Value $25
The unique coupon code on the back of the card is good for a free 5.5″ X 5.5″ 40 page book, and it covers the shipping costs as well.
I love the idea of getting a book for each trip you take – this is probably my favorite item in the box!
Fathom Postcards – Value $5?
Fathom also included 3 postcards from their own collection.
Verdict: I think Fathom did a great job at curation for this box – I can see myself using every item for travel, and they introduced me to a few new brands as well. The value of this box is about $133. I think that’s pretty good for a Quarterly box. It’s not as high as I would like, but it’s well over the cost of the box, so no complaints.
What do you think of the first Fathom Quarterly box?
