This is the information card that came in the package, detailing the items enclosed. I like their packaging a lot, and I LOVE that their filler material is dried moss! How clever and eco-friendly!
Power Practical Lithium 4400 – Value $30
When I get out into nature, I try really hard to be unplugged. It’s a wonderful idea. The reality, however, is that camping and backpacking come with a set of hazards that are not always possible to avoid. My husband and I are responsible for not just ourselves, but two children as well. It’s the 21st century, and I can and should have a phone on me to call for help if needed. If I only use my phone as needed, this battery pack could allow us to be out in nature for up to a week or maybe longer! It’s very lightweight and also has a handy built-in lantern.

OutGo Microfiber Towel – Value $25 (on sale at Amazon for $16.65)
(Somehow I failed to get a picture of the towel – mine looks just like this except brown.) Towels are a huge space-waster in camping and backpacking scenarios. I can’t believe how tiny, lightweight and compact this little guy is! This is perfect. I can’t wait to try it out!
SOL Emergency Bivvy – Value $17
I will never go hiking again without this. This is an emergency sleeping bag that reflects 90% of your body heat back to you, is rain and wind-proof, and weighs 3.8 ounces. How amazing is that?
Night Ize Gear Ties – Value $6.50
I have to admit, I’m not 100% sure what to do with these. I think when the time comes, we will know and be glad we have them. They are rubber on the outside with a strong, flexible wire inside.
AMK Blister Medic – Value $1?
This link is to a 24-pack, so I’m guessing on the value of a single. I am the champion of getting painful blisters on the trail! It will be great to have this pack on hand.
The Verdict: This was another great package from Isle Box! We will absolutely use everything in this box, I’m sure. The combined value of the items comes to about $79 ($71 for sale prices), which is excellent for a $45 box. We are at the beginning of outdoor adventure season in my family, and all this wonderful gear will make our experiences so much easier and safer!
