Kopcrate Subscription Box Review – September 2017
Kopcrate is a monthly box of goodies for the Liverpool FC supporter! They work with licensed distributors, so you can expect official LFC goods, as well!
This box was sent for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Kopcrate
The Cost: $39.99 (Shipping: $12.05 to PA)
The Products: KopCrate is a monthly subscription box for all things Liverpool FC, hand-curated by die-hard fans for other fans. We work with licensed distributors of official LFC merchandise and designers to curate each month’s selection. Re-ignite you love affair with the Reds, start here! Awesome handpicked LFC themed swag you’ll be sure to love. Each month you’ll receive 4-6 items that bring you closer to the REDS! From hats to backpacks & drinkware, Kopcrate has you covered.
I don’t believe that there are any themes to this box – so you should expect a random assortment of Reds goodies.
My shipment arrived with a handwritten welcome card.
It also comes with an information card. This doesn’t list everything that’s in the box, but it does cover a majority.
LFC Boot/Cleat Bag – Retail $17 (similar boot bags online – $18)
The biggest ticket item of the box is a boot bag featuring the crest.
The part I like the most is that it has a wire ribbing – it allows the bag to keep its shape, even when empty.
While I don’t have cleats to carry around in it – it can be easily used for a number of items, even as a dopp kit. At 14×7 inches – and almost a 5-inch depth, you can use this for a number of things.
LFC Freezer Tankard – Retail $17 (online – $16)
You’ll also get a mug that is ready to chill.
Pop this mug in a freezer to freeze the liquid on the outer edge of the mug.
I’m using this after freezing it for two days – and it’s really chilling my drink. Unfortunately – it’s not dishwasher safe, though.
LFC Fidget Spinner – Value $12
Fidget spinners are the lastest thing these days, so why not have one branded with the Liverpool crest?
Everything is the same, front and back – it’s a pretty standard spinner.
LFC Magazine – Value $6.07
The card lists the value at $7 + import/duties – but £4.50 if $6.07 in value – you’ll have to determine the import value.
I’m definitely a sucker for these types of magazines. With my LFC International Supporter membership, I get similar gameday magazines, but they’re digital – it’s just not quite the same.
It also comes with a free fixtures poster – this is SUPER helpful for me!
LFC Flat Water Bottle – Value $10 ($14 on Amazon)
You’ll get a flat water bottle – making it easy to store away when not in use – but it’s shaped like a little LFC shirt.
Fill it up and take it on the go with the attached carabiner.
LFC Dortmund Poster – Value $8
The final item is a print that measures about 12×8 inches.
It features one of my favorite recent games – the comeback at Anfield! It’s a glossy print on HP photo paper – I know that because of the HP logo on the back which cheapens it a bit in my eyes.
Verdict: The listed values come to around $71 for this box – which is good for a box that will run about $52 a month. I’ve ended up liking the two biggest ticket items more than I thought – the cleat bag and mug – so that’s been a bonus for me. The only item that I don’t have much use for is the fidget spinner – but if you’re a supporter with a kid, this is easily gifted. Overall, I like a bunch of stuff in the box and I want to see what future months bring – at $52 a month, it’s a high price – so I’m excited to see what else they send.
