This is the information card that came in the package, detailing the items enclosed. It looks like they’ve upgraded their printed material. This month’s theme is “‘Merica!” I like their packaging a lot, and I LOVE that their filler material is dried moss! How clever and eco-friendly!
You know how much I love a box within a box…
GSI Tactical Black Backout Ops Knife – Value $40
This is a really heavy-duty knife! It folds up and looks like it would be great to have in the woods. According to the info card, it also has “a great throw.” I don’t know why, but that struck me as funny. I guess I’m not such a seasoned outdoorsperson that I would know why I might need to throw a knife!
Mountain House Freeze Dried Ice Cream – Value $2.99
We have tried this ice cream before thanks to subscription boxes. It tastes pretty good, and it’s super lightweight for camping and backpacking. Plus you can just eat it straight from the pouch, and it doesn’t require rehydration.
Aloe Ice Sunburn Relief – Value $8
Nothing beats aloe for sunburn relief! I love having it around for just that reason. ProTip: Keep it in the refreigerator and it helps take the burn out faster and better!
Mountainsmith Beer Sling – Value $21.95
This is the third beer-tube-cooler-sling I’ve received in a subscription box! It’s a good thing that I love them so! We use them all the time, and FYI, they are good for any canned beverage, it doesn’t have to be beer. I’m especially pleased that this is from Mountainsmith; so far everything I own from them has been solid quality.
Verdict: Isle Box is fantastic, and the value this month was about $73! That’s great for a $45 box! This month’s box had a lot of repeats for us, but it’s all stuff we don’t mind having duplicates (or triplicates) of. The knife is pretty intense, too! I have a feeling it will come in handy some time.
