Nomadik “On the Go” March 2019 Review
We received a little booklet with a product list and some brand discounts.
EcoXGear Charge – Retail Value $19.99
I have quite a few portable batteries but none of them are waterproof! This will be really awesome this summer on fishing trips. I like the sleek black shape of this battery and the rubberized texture gives it some grip. The cap that protects the internal plugs is a heavy duty twist off design which keeps everything nice and dry. This cap is also leashed so you don’t lose it.
The Conester – Retail Value $9.95
This product was one I had to look up to make sure I was understanding it correctly. As far as I am concerned, even my basic Honda Civic has cup holders so I was a little at a loss for why I would need this. On their website, they explain that you can use this cupholder basically anywhere (think office, boating, at home coffee table) and that it is nearly impossible to tip it over. I get it, but I am still not super sure I would have a use for this as I generally don’t run around my house knocking mugs over. If you do though, this design is pretty clever. It has a notch for your coffee mug handle and a super sticky peel and sticky bottom if you really need your bevvie to stay put. I mean, it did really well on Kickstarter, so maybe I am the minority here.
Kammock Reusable Mega Tote – Retail Value $9.00
I really love this slate color. It is also big and durable enough to be a great choice for farmer’s market runs when those start to kick off in a few weeks. Made of the leftovers from hammocks, this pouch is sleek, water resistant, and durable. It was very easy to fold this bag back into its pouch for easy storage.
UCO Fire Starting Kit – Retail Value $4.99 (currently sold out)
My husband is weirdly into lighting fires in less than optimal conditions. We all have our hobbies. He was really excited about this kit and impressed with the hurricane matches. He actually lit one in our kitchen and scared the dogs out of the room. The matches are LEGIT. It also comes with replaceable striking pads and 3 Sweetfire Biofuel Tinder Tabs all of which go inside a super portable waterproof canister. He mentioned that he was really excited for our next rainstorm so he could play with the matches outside. Small joys guys!
Skratch Labs Original Energy Bar – Retail Value $2.65
Yummmm. I love when this sub sends snacks because they tend to be healthy, energizing, and also tasty. This bar was a great mix of sweet and salty and the chocolate chunks were so good.
Verdict: Nomadik felt extra full of cool stuff this month. The only real head-scratcher for me was the cup holder, but Will might feel differently. We can use all the portable batteries we can get and I love that this one was waterproof. The bar was delicious and I can’t wait to put my new farmer’s market tote to good use. The fire starting kit was def. the big hit this month! This box has a value of around $46.58, which is decently more than the cost, but not spectacular. This sub tends to focus more on sending really cool gear than wowing you with a ridiculous value.
