GSI’s Backout Tactical Knife ($40) is assembled in the US using material sourced from China. A relatively new company, GSI is in the process of moving their entire operation to the United States. This knife boasts a spring assisted mechanism for easy opening as well as a clothing clip and lanyard hole for easy carrying. It comes with a 100% lifetime warranty. I can’t wait to take it with me to the Santa Fe Mountains this summer!
Aloe Up’s Ice Sunburn Relief Gel ($7.99) is the perfect antidote to a fun-filled day outside. This aloe vera based formula moisturizes dry skin, reduces inflammation and itching and soothes sunburned skin. It is made in America.
Mountainsmith’s Beer Sling ($21.95) is the perfect solution to the age old problem of breaking cardboard beer containers. This sturdy cooler sling holds 6 beers while freeing up your hands for lugging other gear to your picnic table, campsite or boat.
Mountain House’s Freeze Dried Neapolitan Ice Cream ($2.99) is delicious! Although I was never a fan of astronaut ice cream as a child, I loved this! It’s soft and creamy and the flavor is perfect. I can’t wait to surprise my son with this on our camping trip in New Mexico later this summer!
I think Isle Box is great! I’ve used the gear they sent me in December repeatedly while car camping with my son, and I’m sure to get a lot of use out of this month’s selections as well. I love that their gear is down to earth and accessible while also being useful to more seasoned adventurers of any persuasion.
I really enjoyed the products contained in Isle Box this month and hope to receive many more installments in the future!
