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!
This is the info card that came in the package, listing out all the contents.
Eco Vessel Double Barrel Mug – Value $20
I needed a new travel mug, so this was perfect timing! Plus it’s insulated to keep coffee nice and hot. It holds two cups – I need two cups!
McGovern & Co. Wilderness Survival Bandana – Value $12
I love everything about this bandana. It will keep the hair out of my face, I can use it to mop the sweat off my face, and if worse comes to worse, I can red my way out of wilderness danger just by looking at it! How cool is that? Although I keep imagining makeup and hair chalk all over it for some reason. I should probably cut back on the glamping.
Nite Ize LED SlapLit – Value $12
This is a light-up slap bracelet for outdoor nighttime visibility. What a great idea! Especially now that it’s winter and it gets dark so early, this will really come in handy!
Elemental Herbs All Good Lips SPF15 Original – Value $3.50
Have I mentioned the insane amounts of lip balm we go through at my house in the winter? This one looks extra promising too as it has SPF protection and is oxybenzome free. Also included this in this month’s box were a sticker and a coupon for 25% off at McGovern & Co.
Verdict: We love our Cairn subscription! We have discovered so many new and useful products for our camping and hiking adventures through Cairn. This month’s box has a value of $47.50, which is wonderful for a $25 box!
