Nomadik “Rugged Terrain” Review + Coupon – May 2021

A very common thing I hear about subscription boxes is, “I would rather just buy the item if I want it.” I feel like this effort from Nomadik is one of those boxes. I wasn’t a fan of the bracelet or flavored powder. The fire starter was a good item, but how often am I going to use it. I’m into the bug balm, but haven’t officially tried it. The obvious star of this month’s box was the knife. Sometimes I feel like knifes are made to look “bad ass” rather than consider how they will actually be used. With that in mind, this seems like a robust, but thoughtful knife. The trick will be finding the best place for it. Overall, it was a good box. It started really promising with the knife, but the other items didn’t comes together to make it a great box. Does that make sense? What do you think?

Nomadik “Leave No Trace” Review + Coupon – April 2021

Good on Nomadik for making a box promoting Leave No Trace. I love camping and being outdoors. So messages like this are important to me and my friends. I think we can all agree we need to leave a smaller footprint on the Earth and these items will help. While I’m a big fan of natural lip balm, I’m picking the journal as my favorite item. I think everyone should journal. It’s sort of like meditating in the way it helps you clear your mind. The duffel bag was nice, but I will need to find a good use for it since I have so many bags. The straws were OK. Again, the idea is sound, but I just don’t see myself ever using them. I simply won’t use any straw – plastic or metal – but that’s more of a personal preference. All in all, an OK box from Nomadik, but none of these items wowed me. See below for the value breakdown. Do you subscribe to Nomadik? What did you think of this month’s box and Leave No Trace?

Nomadik “Scouting” Review + Coupon – March 2021

This was a good box from Nomadik for people who don’t have large heads. I’m still going to pick the hat as the best item, even if I can’t wear it. I know it will make all you normal-sized-head people happy, but my boonie hat search continues. While I like it, obviously, if I had bought this subscription and couldn’t wear the items they were sending me, I’d be bummed out. Some other subs do ask you for your sizes when you sign up. So, maybe that is something Nomadik could consider in the future. Or maybe there could be a return/exchange situation for people who literally can’t wear certain things? The oatmeal was good and the salve will come in handy more so this summer. The knife was cool and useful, but I don’t think I’ll be taking it scouting due to it’s sharp edges.

We've enjoyed receiving this box each month. We are outdoor enthusiasts and camp, fish, and hike pretty regularly in the nicer seasons but haven't stayed up to date on the gear trends. Nomadik helps us stay 'in the know' a bit more!

"Meh.. depending on the month."
Apr 27, 2021
SO, my boyfriend and I have been receiving these boxes for about 6 months now. I would say that about 1/2 of the boxes were really great and the other 1/2 cheap and not worth it. The monthly subscription would definitely upset me more than our long term one. I think that the overall cost of all of our boxes combine are seemingly worth it, however monthly there are definitely some discrepancies with the price range and quality between boxes.

"Do not purchase Nomadik"
Aug 20, 2021
Boxes were hit and miss. The starter pack hammock was really cool, but subsequent boxes ranged in quality. Main reason for my rating is the shady billing process. I was not aware that ALL subscriptions automatically renew, and was charged almost $300 for another set of boxes that I didn't want. Even though it's a 6 month subscription (so they clearly hadn't sent the product), there was no flexibility for even a partial refund. Do not buy this product. There are better subscriptions with more ethical companies.

"Disappointing. Auto-Renews without warning."
Jun 12, 2021
Subscription boxes are a fun easy to send/receive an unlikely assortment of items. The Nomadik does well in choosing at least one pretty cool item in its boxes that we might not have thought of. I found it to be more fun as a gift and would have been disappointed if bought for myself. FYI: you may cancel the subscription before receiving your final box so you’re not overcharged for a plan you no longer want. I give them 2 stars because they did not communicate before charging for an additional subscription and that feels like a con to me.

"Beware — the customer service is seriously lacking "
Jun 11, 2021
I really want to like them, but I keep running into seriously aggravating customer service issues. The first issue I had, it took ages to resolve because it would be several days between responses. Beware that they auto-renew you without saying anything — I went to reup my subscription and now I’m being told I can’t cancel the duplicate I want to add it to the end of the current one, but no. So I’ve paid for and am receiving two of the same box a month — come on, Nomadik. The items themselves are decent.. we’ve had some awesome boxes and a couple of duds. I like being introduced to new gear and new brands. However, at the end of my subscription, I’m completely done with Nomadik unless they resolve the customer service issues.

Got my first box the May 2020 box the retail value was only about $42 the items on the card didn’t all match the item sent. They swapped out a wash bag for a set of travel containers for soaps and shampoos which was worth at least eight dollars less than the laundry bag. An extra five dollars a month for shipping is crazy they should include that with the price of the service I will give them one more month to see if they get better. The April box had socks which were pretty decent a reusable tote bag shaped like a Walmart bag. But to say the least for my almost $40 I am underwhelmed

The worst customer service! I was intrigued by the advertising, and while I enjoy the outdoors, my son is VERY much the enthusiast. So I thought I would get the monthly subscription and try it out, according to the site, with this option you could "cancel at any time". Sounds good. I finally received the first box about 6 weeks after I subscribed. It seemed to just be a timing thing, so ultimately that was no big deal. I would see the charge on my credit card and about a month later a box would come. Some of the boxes were certainly cooler than others, and I liked seeing the different products. As with anything like this, not everything is intriguing. But overall, I felt the value was more or less there. So, after several boxes, I decided that I just didn't want to shell out the $37 a month, I wasn't really taking advantage of the products, I was kind of meh on the whole thing. So, since I had signed up for the monthly, I could cancel any time....NOT! This would start a several month battle and ridiculous amount of frustration. First I tried to log into my account. For some reason I couldn't. (i was able to later, could have been just a glitch in my internet, or firewall, or whatever cyber voodoo sometimes happens, but it was a bit of an issue) so this is what started, what would eventually turn into 3 months of frustration. So, I go to the contact. There is no way to contact them other than email. I reached out via email, explained the situation. The auto responder says they will reach back out in 48 hours. I never received response. Several more days go by, and I get an email : "Since we have not heard from you we have closed this..." What? I never heard from anybody. So I respond to the email, and say basically that. 2 days later i get another email, with a screen shot of the email that is nowhere in my email box (not spam/not junk/ no where) with a snippit comment. This is the email that was sent to you. This type of transaction goes back and forth, with no real answers, just weird canned responses. So, I am finally able to log in to my account. I follow their process, which is basically send them an email and tell them you want to cancel. I did. They didn't. I do it again, and send an email from a different account. All say the same thing. Cancel. I finally get a response. I presume it is resolved. Nope. There is the charge to my credit. After several, all caps emails from 2 different email accounts, and again, and i can't stress this enough, following their procedure, I believe we my finally have this resolved. We will see. I finally had to threaten to report them as fraud to my credit card company. I hate being that person. I just wanted to stop the subscription. So if you are enjoying the program great! You want to give it a try, you might like it, it is pretty cool, but be aware, I am not the only person who has had issue with their customer service, and while I always try to be positive, and maybe my transaction was an anomaly...the frustration was very real and ultimately expensive.

"False website claims"
Oct 9, 2021
I did a year subscription and at first my boxes were ok then it was very hit and miss. Quality was ok but not worth the "value" as claimed in the pamphlet. I got the auto renewal charges automatically- no notice. Other subscriptions boxes at least say "hey you're up for renewal." I contacted the company the day of the charge via email since their system didn't recognize I had an account (which obviously I should have had I had an "active subscription". They aren't honoring their 14 day satisfaction guarantee or their "cancel anytime and only be charged for what gets shipped" claims on their website. The renewal also had a shipping charge which is something that is not on their website. No promo codes or anything are needed for the free shipping. Customer service said it was "only for new members" which isn't what's stated anywhere on their site. I'm going to keep fighting for my money as I won't let this company rip me off and get away with it.

"Rip off!"

Do not subscribe to this. This company is a joke. Non existent customer service, no way to get in contact with them. They pick and choose which emails to respond to. The value of the boxes is not near what you spend.
