It comes with a little card from Woodchuck, one of the featured brands, to find out more info about their other products, too.

Gentlemans Premium Box Wanderer Fall 2018 - Wood Journal With Pen

Woodchuck USA Journal and Pen – Value $60 (for both items, the pen is $30 alone)

Let’s start with the best notebook I’ve received in a subscription box – this handcrafted, real wood journal from Woodchuck USA.

Gentlemans Premium Box Wanderer Fall 2018 - Wood Journal Front

This is a hardbound notebook made with real wood – I love the scent, too, I find myself just sniffing it every once in a while.

It’s a standard rule journal complete with a page marker.

What’s a notebook without something to write in it? Complete the 100% real wood notebook with this cedar wood pen from Woodchuck.

The pen writes very smoothly and naturally pairs well with the notebook.

Black Label Watch – Value $120

The next item is The Voyager watch from Black Label Watches.

The watch arrives ready to go. It’s battery operated, so just set the time and press the little crown in to get going.

The watch has a stainless steel case with Miyota 2035 Movement

The rugged watch face is one that I think matches the outdoorsy theme of this box! It’s big and bold.

It finishes off with a leather strap.

I thought the sizing was pretty close to what I tend to go for, too. It felt like a good cross between quality and a lower price point for a watch.

Gentlemans Premium Box Wanderer Fall 2018 - Pourtables

Libra Coffee – Value $5

There are two interlocked items from Libra Coffee this month – the first is a single serving ‘pourtables’ coffee filter for on-the-go brew.

Gentlemans Premium Box Wanderer Fall 2018 - Pourtables Bcack

The packet has directions on how to pour your coffee. You’ll need a mug and some hot water – that’s it.

The little filter opens up and latches onto the edges of your cup. Simply pour the hot water of the grinds and…

Within minutes, you’ll have some coffee! I must say, the process was easy, but more importantly – the coffee was bold and flavorful!

Enamelware Cups – Value $30

While I had to show off the little filters in a glass mug – Libra Coffee made sure to also provide mugs for the traveling coffee drinker.

You’ll get a set of this stainless steel mugs – perfect to take with you as you wander, these won’t break and are very lightweight.

The biggest thing to mention here is that thare not dishwasher or microwave safe.

Gentlemans Premium Box Wanderer Fall 2018 - Socks In Box

ThreadJar Cranberry Juice Dress Socks – Value $15

Threadjar prides itself in perfecting the dress sock – this month, all Premium subscribers get a single pair to try.

I love the design here – so very Fall.

These are a 80% Cotton, 17% Polyester, 3% Elastane blend. They’re pretty thin, too – I wore these yesterday and I’d say that they’re much more on the dress sock side than something you’d wear out in the cold. I like the look, but they were a bit too thin for me when pairing them with some Fall boots.

Cooler Backpack – Value $80

The big-ticket item in the box is this roomy cooler backpack.

While I’m not really sure what brand this is (nothing is listed), I will say that it feels durable and high-quality inside and out.

Designed with a padded handle and shoulder straps to offer multiple carrying options – along with multiple insulated options – both the exterior pocket and the inside are insulated.

It even has a few net options for carrying other items along with your insulated goods.

Overall, this was the big highlight – and I was seriously impressed – I offered this to a coworker who bikes around town and they have been using it ever since! It’s a versatile piece for on-the-go.

Verdict: I’m very impressed with my first shipment of the premium Gentleman’s Box – it felt premium and the value matched it – it’s around $310 of items for $100 – that’s an incredible value. This makes me extra excited to see what’s to come from Gentleman’s Box Premium.

  1. Nice useful items.

  2. Oooh, looks nice! If I hadn’t grabbed a Battlebox and Nomadik for gifts for my husband I might have gone with this. That notebook and pen are amazing, though, I’d be keeping those!

  3. As mentioned by Apricot, the watch clearly has a laughable RV especially considering the pleather wrist band and literally the cheapest movement there is. I sometimes wonder if some of these watch ‘brands’ are specifically setup to sell to boxes/wholesalers to justify a fake RV.

    A ‘extraordinarily similar’ backpack to the one included can be found on Amazon for $30 (about 8 items down if you search for “backpack cooler”) which is significantly lower in value than the listed $80.

    The woodchuck notebook can also be found on Amazon for $20; granted this doesn’t include the price of the pen.

    This is my 3-4th premium box and I can honestly say it’s a bit of a let down. I’m strongly considering cancelling; there’s no point in spending $100 for random items that are roughly worth $100 more realistically (I can already do this without a sub box)

  4. It irks me that a watch which has a rv of over $100 has a PU leather strap. Just use full leather instead of the cheaper and less durable polyurethane coated leather.

  5. Didn’t this originally have a wooden box, like breo box? Maybe I’m confusing it with so many other boxes that come and go in the house. I subscribed for three, but it was a price point that I couldn’t maintain and still keep other boxes that I really enjoy. This also doesn’t have the “vibe” of the other boxes that I received. Definitely preferred the other boxes over this one.

    • This did originally have a large wooden box for the first couple editions; however they have switched from that.

  6. I’m glad they stopped promising a crazy RV they couldn’t deliver on and went with quality pieces instead.
