The Fanchest card listed some of the companies whose products they highlighted in that box. No prices or product details were included.
Old Time Hockey Blasted Women’s Crewneck – Value $30?
I’m unable to find this exact shirt online but similar ones are selling for $30. This is a cotton/poly blend shirt. It is nice and thick and super soft. I like the faded out retro look to the logo on the front. I’m glad I sized up for this box because I think the shirt does run small.
Old Time Hockey Amherst Women’s V-neck – Value $40?
I’m unable to find this exact shirt online but similar ones are selling for $40. This is a cotton/poly blend shirt. I like the ¾ sleeve baseball style shirts for sleeping so this can be my new nightshirt. I’m glad I sized up for this box because I think this shirt also runs small. I wish the shirts had been 100% cotton because I find they hold up better with multiple washings, but I’m happy that both shirts are thick and seem well made.
American Needle NY Rangers hat – Value $20?
I’m unable to find this exact hat for purchase online but similar hats are selling for $20. This 100% cotton hat is well made and I really like the grayish tweed look for the back of the hat with the blue brim and contrasting red stitching.
Henrik Lundqvist 10 inch plush doll – $15.99
This doll is adorable. They even included Lundqvist’s goatee and his name is printed on the jersey. It’s screen printed, made of polyester and is officially licensed.
2013 Hockey Team Logo Wordmark Scarf – $69.99
This scarf is selling for an overinflated price on Amazon since it was a 2013 scarf and they are difficult to find now. Similar scarves sell for $20. It’s 100% acrylic and hand wash only. I like the team colors and this will be passed on as a gift to one of the men Ranger fans in my life.
This neoprene screen printed koozie fits standard 12 ounce bottles. Perfect for drinking a beer while watching a game!
Wincraft NHL Reversible Lanyard – $17.99
This is an officially licensed lanyard with removable buckle. This lanyard will be great to use at work for my classroom key and security swipe card. It is high-quality and feels great.
Verdict: I absolutely loved my Fanchest! I can’t believe how many items they managed to stuff into this chest for $49. I feel like the value is fabulous because officially licensed gear isn’t cheap. Using the approximate values I could find online and estimating the scarf to be $20 I come up with a $150 value for this box. I’m so impressed by that! For me the two shirts alone make this box worth the cost and everything else is just an added bonus! I know so many men in my life who would love to receive one of these chests as a gift. The shipping was very fast too. The only thing I’d like to note is that their clothing sizes tend to run small so keep that in mind when ordering. The women’s XL shirts they sent me fit more like a medium in other brands of clothing in my opinion.
