Nomadik “Wet Weather” Review – February 2024

Carlos Lamborn
ByCarlos LambornMar 25, 2024 | 0 comments

Nomadik is a lifestyle subscription box for outdoor lovers. Every month, they send 3-5 items for outdoor adventures including gear, snacks, and multi-use items for $34.99 + shipping. They promise a $60 average retail value.  First-time subscribers will choose their first box. Future gear and kit themes are based on a variety of factors, such as: seasonality, available inventory from brand partners, interests, etc. But rest assured, the value, quality, and quantity of the items in all variations of the kits are comparable each month. You can skip a month, cancel, or reactivate your account easily.

There is also a quarterly version of this subscription. It costs $150 four times a year and promises a $200+ value for each installment.

This box was sent to us at no cost to review. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions

Nomadik's tried and true monthly box is always a welcome sight. I like that you can immediately tell this is an outdoor box. Every box comes with a small tri-fold with information about the items and some other info or deals. There is also always a neat Nomadik sticker.

Inside The Nomadik "Wet Weather" Box

Rockagator Ultralight Series 10L Dry Bag - Retail Price $25

You can never have too many dry bags. I have several, but always welcome more. This bad boy from Rockagator weighs in at 4 oz. It's fabricated out of lightweight, but durable, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and all of the seams are welded (not taped) so you can count on these being 100% waterproof, according to the site. They can be stuffed with clothes, food, or any item that needs to stay dry for your adventure, like hiking, hitting the beach, or riding the river. When empty can easily be stowed without taking hardly any space in your pack. Light weight, minimalist, and incredibly useful. These are a few of my favorite things.

Note: The 10L bags appear to be sold out at the time of this review.

My Medic Compass - Retail Price $23

I must admit I had no idea how to read or use a compass. I've never needed one, but it feels like a good thing to have and know how to use. This one from My Medic is light weight and compact. It has a mirror for navigation and sending signals, a declination scale that measures length and distance, and a rotating ring with 2-degree increments for accurate reading. It comes in a microfiber carrying pouch and it is dust-proof and water-proof. I only wish it had come with a few instructions, but that's nothing a few videos online can't solve.

Stansport Water-Resistant Emergency First Aid Kit - Retail Price $11

An emergency kit is one of those things I never think to buy for myself, but I know I'll be so grateful to have one when I need it. This one from Stansport has an assortment of 29 first aid and emergency items, including a variety of bandages, medical pads, moleskin, and more all in a small water-tight case. Neither the site nor the package makes mention of the useful length of cord attached to the case. There is also a carabiner to attach it to your gear. It'd even be great in your car.

Clean Freak Antibacterial Body Wipe - Estimated Price $1.10

After a day of hiking or before getting in the sleeping bag, getting clean can be a game changer. There's not always a shower or stream to jump in. Having a bunch of wipes, like this one from Klean Freak, do great in a pinch. From the site, "Each wipe contains zero alcohol and is enhanced with Aloe and Witch Hazel for cooling comfort and a Chamomile/Calendula blend to give you that soothing effect." They also sell them in numerous scents. So go crazy.

Note: These are bought in packs of 100 for $110. That's about $1.10 per wipe.

The Verdict

A decent installment from Nomadik. I loved that everything was thoughtfully compact and useful. The dry bag is perfect, it's something everyone can find a use for. So it's worth having one or two in the house. The emergency kit and compass are both the type of items that are great to have but hope you're never in a situation to need them. At least the compass is an item you can choose to use for the fun of it. The wipe was definitely as advertised, but I wish it had been a small pack of 20 or so. Overall, a thoughtful effort of functional items. Keep them coming, Nomadik.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Your first box will be your choice. More from Nomadik:

Just sign up, fill out your profile, and pick your first theme. Future boxes are curated based on: your profile, seasonality and product surveys. If you order by the 15th, your monthly box ships by the 24th of this month. Otherwise it will ship by the 24th of next month. Future shipments (after the first shipment) will ship by the 24th. When you sign up, you'll be charged and your subscription will automatically renew on the 4th of your renewal month. You'll be charged 1 time per month and you'll get 1 box per month.

Value Breakdown: At $40 ($34.99 + $4.99 shipping to PA) for this box, each of the 4 items has an average cost of $10. This box has a retail value of around $60, which is the promised value. I'm really happy with the value and mix of useful items.
