Items in the November 2020 Cairn Box

Shwood CAMP Collection Eyewear

Rugged and durable cellulose acetate with genuine wood inlays and stainless steel spring hinges. Polarized lens with 100% UVA/UVB protection.

I was surprised to see a $79 item included in Cairn – way over the usual amount.

Really good presentation with this – nice box that includes a microfiber cleaning cloth and a cuter-than-cute padded pouch that looks like a tiny sleeping bag. The adorable factor is slightly off-the-charts on the pouch.

The glasses themselves are fine, lightweight but feel sturdy and comfortable enough. Like all known sunglasses in this world, they look eh on me.

Cairn now offers a “sunglass” profile option that you need to opt in to, in case you wear prescription ones and don’t want to receive them in your monthly box.

Chumms Ratchet Retainer

Eyeglass retainer cord with a pivoting end for more adjustment options. I’ve used the classic fabric one for years.

Instant oatmeal in a cup – add boiling water, microwave, or make as overnight oats. Made with a few simple ingredients and has 12 grams of protein.

This was pretty darn tasty – lightly sweet, lots of almonds, the perfect texture, and satisfyingly filling. Going to be ordering more of these.

Update: Ordered a variety pack of RXBAR Oats – the maple and chocolate flavors are really good as well; perfect to eat before a hike.

RXBAR Nut Butter

This was decent tasting as well – slathered over some toasted Dave’s Killer Bread – but messy. Any type of nut butter packet just seems to get everywhere. It could be me though.
