I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Every month my family eagerly awaits The Nomadik box and we all dive in when it arrives as it really does has stuff our whole family can use. We of course use getting new items as an excuse to get outside and camp and/or hike. Monthly subscription boxes can be exciting and introduce you to products you might not have tried otherwise and in the case of The Nomadik it helps get you outside to actually use the products. The Nomadik is a a premier subscription box for adventure and outdoor enthusiasts. Check out my reviews here and here of previous boxes and read on to take a peak into this box to see what The Nomadik is all about!
Each month has a unique theme with products and a challenge that aligns with the theme. For June The Nomadik is giving you a license to chill. Whether you are camping or going on a hike you have to remember to step back and "chill" as you enjoy the world around you.
Each box includes up to 6 innovative gear items, valued around $50.00 (sometimes a little under and sometimes a little over that) and your box costs you $32.95. That is the monthly price, if you purchase a 6 or 12 month set it will costs you even less per month. That means not only are you getting a value but you are gonna try out products that you might not have otherwise. Sometimes the best way to discover something new is to try it out. Even if you aren?t sure exactly what the item you receive is used for Nomadik includes a handy print out explaining each item. They also include some tips and brand discount codes.
The big item this month is a really cool LuminAID Packlite Solar Lantern. Perfect for taking back and forth to the bathrooms while camping or to stash in an emergency kit. Just leave it facing the sun during the day to charge. Waterproof and dustproof this light can go with you anywhere. It provides over 75 lumens of bright light on turbo-mode and can run for up to 24 hours on low-mode when fully charged. Would be great for night time kayak rides too since it is waterproof up to 1 meter and it floats!
Everyone needs quality socks when camping and/or hiking. It is one thing we never skimp on. In the box this month includes Richer or Poorer Rambler Socks. These are designed specifically for the everyday outdoor enthusiast as they are built for pure function and comfort while still being stylish. The rambler includes built in arch support, double-twisted yarn, a non-binding rib welt and strong low profile seams to reduce irritation and increase durability. These have a nice thickness to them to prevent blisters while still being soft enough to never want to take them off.
When we go camping we try and go as green as we can. That includes using as many re-usable products as possible. The Light my Fire Original BPA-Free Tritan Spork Mjulti-Color 4 Pack is an easy way to ditch some plastic. These combo utensils are lightweight, durable and heat resistant so they are PERFECT for camp side dinners. My girls think they are "cool" and Big Sis and Lil Sis plan on packing these in their Girl Scout mess kits as well. This one utensil is easier and quicker cleaning than taking a separate spoon, knife and fork.
The last item in this month's box is an S-Biner MircroLock Polycarbonate. I am already a big fan of Nite Ize and we use several of their products when camping but this is my first time trying out this little tool. It allows for quick and easy attachment using its unique double-gated design. This dual carabiner has a center locking lever activated with a simple twist to keep items secure. A great little took for attaching items onto a backpack or to keep on yours keys to then attach to a bag so they stay secure on a hike. These are one of this little tools you don't realize you need till you start using them everywhere.
I LOVE the addition of a little challenge included with each box. The Nomadik Challenge is a little game where Nomadik tells you the what/where and then you take a picture using your new gear or the box for a chance to win prizes by posting on Instagram using their tag and hashtag. Think camping or hiking so it is another way to help get you outside and trying your new gear! They have an AMAZING 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you don?t like what you got then they will send you a new item free of charge. The Nomadik is a great way to bring a little bit of adventure into your house every month.
