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!
Kovea Power Nano Stove – Value $19.95
Check out this ultra light tiny gas stove! This is pretty advanced gear for ultra-light backpacking. It works by screwing it into the top of a little canister of butane, and it has a field tested boil time of 2 minutes and 23 seconds. That’s fast! This is a little advanced for us, but we will probably give it a try. I’m just wondering what backpacking with cans of butane would be like…
Armor Wound Dressing Gel – Value $13.95
The advantage that this little tube of wound dressing gel has over, say, Neosporin, is that it’s designed to protect the wound so you can continue your activity. With hiking and backpacking, that’s key! Gotta get back to the car, at least!
Nite Ize Knot Bone – Value $8.95
This gear-tying-down-gear is so important, I know, but it just makes my eyes glaze over. My husband goes nuts for all this stuff, though!
Mountain House Breakfast Skillet – Value $5.99
This breakfast for two is only 4.73 ounces, so it’s perfect for backpacking! It’s basically freeze dried hash browns and scrambled eggs with sausage, peppers and onions. It sounds really hearty!
The Verdict: My family is really enjoying our subscription to Isle Box! We have been spending as much time as possible in the great outdoors lately, and having new toys to test out has been really fun, plus we’ve found some really helpful products. This month’s box has a value of $53, which feels a little low for Isle Box, but is still very good for the $45 cost of the box.
