Bespoke Post is a monthly men’s subscription box. Unlike most subscription boxes, you get to preview the new Bespoke Post box offerings on the first of each month, and you can easily skip any month you aren’t interested in your account section.

This is a review of the 'Retreat' box.

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


The Subscription Box: Bespoke Post

The Cost: $45 a month

The Products: Monthly lifestyle items, curated around a theme.

Ships to: US and Canada

Check out all of my Bespoke Post Reviews to get more information on this subscription. Check out all of our Men's Subscription Boxes in the Subscription Box List. Rate, review, and follow this subscription on the Bespoke Post profile page.



Each shipment is accompanied by an information card including details about each item in your selected box.


The back always includes information pertaining to your box's theme. This month provides a short bit about hiking etiquette.


Coalatree Hammock - Value $39.99

The hero time of the month was a hammock from Coalatree. The short story is that it's fantastic!


Buckles and I enjoyed it - it's nice and relaxing with no pressure points on your back at all. This is an organic parachute nylon hammock, which means that it's easy to pack up and super strong and durable.

The ends are fitting with rope and carabiners. We opted out of the rope and went with easier hammock suspension straps - that way, it's ultra portable and quick to attach to any tree.


These parachute hammocks are also fantastic because you can easily sit up in them! You could sit in the middle like a swing or scoot back until you're upright like I am here.


Kachula Blanket - Value $69.99

The second item is also from Coalatree - it's a super durable blanket. It's lightweight, waterproof, dirt-resistant, and nylon - so it's ideal for the outdoors. Extra bonus, it'll double as a pillow when you pack it into the pouch.

Both the hammock and the blanket pack into their own attached punch - so it's really convenient on-the-go. Unlike most items you take out of the package, they're also really easy to get back into the pouch - I was impressed!

Verdict: Liz and I are used to the typical, home-use, hammocks - but this one is so much more comfortable than those! And, it's easy to store and pack away until you're ready to use it. It's so convenient that I still have a use for these items as someone who likes hammocks and not hiking - so that's quite a feat to pull off.

I got this box and need to get the suspension straps. I wanted something that I could easily take to the park or on a hike to have somewhere to sit and hang out off the ground (because mud, everywhere). Plus the blanket alone was more than the cost of the box and I’d been eyeing them on Kickstarter.

How is nylon organic?

Do different people get different boxes shown as available to them? I don’t mean the one selected for them, but of the other choices available? Only because I don’t remember seeing this one.

I’ve had the same experience. Last month, only one of the five new boxes showed up for me–the other four “new” were old boxes. I found, though, that I could search by box name from the info shared on this site and pick those boxes regardless. I’m not sure if they’re showing us what they think we want or trying to push us toward boxes they’d rather offload.

Bespoke Post mentions that it is organic on the card, but no specifics are given. You can read more about the Coalatree products here: http://www.coalatree.com/info/about-us/4

As for the boxes shown, I’ve always assumed that it was the same for everyone – it was the first box we saw when we posted about selection time for September: https://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2016/09/bespoke-post-september-2016-selection-time-25-coupon-code.html

Thanks for reviewing this choice—we were thiiiiiissss close to choosing it, but went with a different box. It’s great to know how much you like both items in the package so we can select it next time.

I got this for my husband for his birthday (next month) and am sooooooo excited about it! The video about the blanket on the coaltree website sealed the deal for me. I’ll have to pick up some straps, too. Thanks for the tip!

Thank you for a great review. I bought one for myself and one for a gift. Appreciated the information regarding the suspension straps as they look to be really handy and easy to use.
