Cairn is a subscription service that delivers outdoor gear every month. They bill their service as “Your Monthly Box of Outdoor Discovery.” Fall is our big outdoors adventure season, and we are loving all the hiking, camping, and backpacking!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Cairn Subscription Box Review December 2015 - quote

I love the quotes they print on their liner paper!

When I signed up for Cairn, they asked me to do a huge questionnaire for customization purposes. It asked questions about the types of outdoor activities I like, and I chose hiking, camping (car), backpacking, and yoga. They had loads of options, though, like rock climbing, moutain biking, fishing — just about everything I could think of! They also asked a few lifestyle questions (kids? dogs?) plus basics like t-shirt size.

All this leads me to believe that contents may vary from subscriber to subscriber, so if you subscribe but get different things, please let me know!

Cairn Subscription Box Review December 2015 - battery

Power Practical Lithium 4400 – Value $30

We’ve received several of these battery packs in subscription boxes before, but this one looks like it might be the King of Battery Packs. You can charge your devices for days! Plus I love what their website says about them: “Small, lightweight, and fits in your palm like a boss.”

Sierra Sage Green Goo Dry Skin Stick – Value $10

Everyone in my family suffers from dry skin patches and chapped lips all winter, and this stuff is supposedly the best for taking care of dry skin. I can’t wait to try it!

Cairn also sent us a little patch this month. Fun! One of the boys will have this pinned to their vest soon, I can tell already.

UST Brands Heat-Up Hand Warmers – Value $1

I LOVE hand warmers, and I always wish I had some. It’s just so rarely bitter cold here, I guess I never remember to stock them. This is a great reminder! I need to just go ahead and buy about 20 pair and stash them in the car.

New Grounds Food Mocha Latte CoffeeBar – Value $3

Guess what I’ve recently learned? Eating caffeine works just as well as drinking it! Maybe better. These bars are 100% organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

Cairn Subscription Box Review December 2015 - envelope

Cairn’s envelopes always look so enticing!

Cairn Subscription Box Review December 2015 - extras

This month;’s extras from Cairn include a coupon for Powerpot 5 plus promotional materials for iLuv rugged speakers and the Global 6K for water.

The Verdict: We have subscribed to Cairn for six months now and have been very happy with our subscription! I think we have put almost everything they’ve sent us to good use! This month’s box felt a little light, having only four items (they usually send 5). On the other hand, the retail value of the battery pack is pretty high. The retail value of all items combined is $44, which is great for a $25 box.

Do you subscribe to Cairn? What are your outdoor activities? What did they send you?

"Every month, you’ll receive a box of products that cater to an outdoor lifestyle. Cairn works hard to curate products that recreational enthusiasts will love. Sample categories that may be included in box: Gear, Apparel, Food/Energy, Skincare, Emergency/Medical"
