Cairn Review May 2018

At Cairn, they love the outdoors and want to inspire people to get outside. Every month, you’ll receive a box of products that cater to an outdoor lifestyle. You’ll receive 3 – 6 products (up to $50 value) monthly or 5 – 10 premium products ($300+ value) quarterly. Sample categories that may be included in box: Gear, Apparel, Food/Energy, Skincare, Emergency/Medical. They kindly sent us this box for review.

Last month was our first time reviewing Cairn and we were super excited to get our hands on this box. Outdoor themed subscription boxes are few and far between. It’s a subscription box category that needs a little more love, but for now at least there’s Cairn to fill the gap.

Here’s a closer look at the items in the May Cairn…….

May Details: Choose Your Adventure

The gear in this month’s Cairn box has been curated based on their versatility and ability to adapt to just about any of the endless outdoor activities you might choose.

Packtowl Luxe Towel

Make room (you only need a little bit) for this go-anywhere, do-anything towel. The Luxe towel is PackTowl’s most luxurious quick-drying towel available. Not only is it super soft, it dries 30% faster than your typical cotton towel and takes up much less space.

Toss this little bit of luxury in your pack for any summer adventure, and you’ll be amazed at how often it comes in handy. Whether traveling, working out, camping, boating or spending time in the water, the Luxe towel offers cozy, cotton-like comfort, with fast-drying and oder-controlled performance.

I love that this first item is so versatile. It’s not only for camping – use it for traveling or the gym……or the boat. I live in a town where boating, camping, and weekend road trips are a way of life so this towel is actually pretty perfect.

TYNY Tools Key Clips

Lightweight versatility and organization is the name of the game! These super strong clips, made of industrial silicone and swivel carabiners, are perfect for strapping gear to your pack, bundling loose items, and managing rose or cords.

This is the kind of item to keep on hand, whether it be in your backpack or in your vehicle. I feel like these little clips will be very useful……for a number of different things.

Viter Energy Mints

These little mints are sneaky versatile – minty fresh breath and an energy boost. The mints contain 40mg of caffeine (half a cup of coffee’s worth of caffeine) and B-vitamins for last-acting on-demand energy and fresh breath, all packed in a pocket-sized tin.

Equadose Pill Splitter

Are you sick of unequal halves and dangerous powder when you’re splitting pills? Introducing the Equadose pill splitter. It is a whole new way of cutting tablets. The design utilizes two opposing blades that come in from the sides to score your pills prior to splitting them. Furthermore, the blades are angled so that they will never dull. In addition, the Equadose pill splitter is crafted here in the USA.

This item wasn’t in the product book so I’m tempted to say it is a bonus item. I feel like it will come in handy for some subscribers and not so much for others. I personally don’t have a use for it but I know for a fact that my Stepmom will love it.

Cairn Review May 2018 – Final Thoughts

Overall I’m pretty happy with the May Cairn box. As I mentioned above, Cairn is filling a void in the subscription box market which I appreciate very much. I like to see subscription box options for everyone and this is a perfect box for anyone who likes to spend time outdoors. Whether it be camping, hiking, traveling, boating… name it. Two of the products we received this month are extremely versatile and can be used for a number of different activities. These are the kind of items I appreciate receiving. I look forward to seeing more from Cairn.



Every month, you’ll receive a box of products that cater to an outdoor lifestyle.
