This review is of The Weekender Box. No literature was provided in the package.
14-LED Flashlight – Value $4
This is a nice, bright flashlight. We tend to use and break a lot of flashlights, so this is really useful.
Nite Ize S-biner – Value $1.78
This is the kind of thing that my husband flips out over, and I have no idea why. I asked him if he wanted to take it to scout camp the other day and he said yes immediately. Now I will never see it again. I guess I can only really tell you that they must be useful!
Backpacker’s Trowel – Value $1.79
This is a lightweight but fairly sturdy trowel. It’s perfect for backpacking!
Mountain House Fire Roasted Vegetable Blend – Value $3.99
I’m starting to have a little stockpile of emergency / backpacking food thanks to subscription boxes. I’m happy to finally see some vegetables! We will definitely try this out on our next camping adventure.
Coleman Biowipes – Value $4.99
Wipes are so crucial to camping with children, I am always happy to get more. These in particular are great because they only make my hands feel a little sticky after use, and they’re compostable!
Then there was this, loose in the box with no packaging. Any guesses?
Verdict: To be honest, I was pretty disappointed with this second package from True North Supply Co. The total value adds up to $17, which is much less than the $34.50 purchase price. The items were useful but there was not much of a wow factor. And what was that mystery piece of metal in the box all about? If next month is not significantly better, I might have to re-think this subscription.
