What’s inside the Cairn outdoor subscription box for December 2018. 
Considering getting a Cairn subscription or giving one as a gift? Here’s a rundown of what this month’s box offers.

Disclaimer: Cairn provided a complimentary box for review, but did not provide compensation or exercise control over the content of this post.

In this month’s box

Coal Beanie Warm beanie made from Polyana fiber which is produced with less energy than conventional acrylic. $30
Noso Patch Kit Patch gear instead of throwing it out. $10
Clif Energy Granola Blend of organic oats, almonds, cashews, seeds, and dried fruit. Blueberry Crisp flavor. $5

Total Value: $45

Cairn’s theme this month is “Long Live Winter”. A warm beanie, energy granola, and a patch kit arrived in a blue bag instead of the usual box.

Coal partnered with Protect Our Winter (POW) for a special COAL X POW beanie utilizing Polyana fiber blended with acrylic that uses less energy to produce than traditional acrylic. Coal is also giving a $1 to POW for every beanie sold.

Warm and fuzzies, all around.

We love pretty much every Clif product out there but I must be slipping because I didn’t realize this new Clif Energy Granola was out.

It’s yummy taste is just like their Blueberry Crisp Clif Bar. It has pea protein added for extra energy (doesn’t taste like peas) and can be eaten as a snack or with milk or yogurt for breakfast.

That is, if it lasts that long.

I’d like to say we took this out on some amazing trail but it was pouring today so we procured a caramel macchiato as a consolation prize and decided to taste taste the granola too.

Well… we found ourselves shoveling this deliciousness in by the handful. The bag says “10 snack sized servings” – riiiight – but there’s not much left. Oops.

The final item is the Noso Patch Kit to repair clothing and gear.

Instead of throwing out favorite jackets, backpacks, tents, etc just because of a rip or hole, slap one of these fun shaped patches on and briefly heat in the dryer or sunlight to set.
