SitRep Box is a monthly subscription box that sends items from veteran-owned businesses and charities that help veterans and their families and curates products to a monthly theme. The box costs $29.99 a month or you can send a one-time box as a gift. Here’s a little info about their mission from their website:
Here’s the situation, many Veteran owned businesses go unnoticed because they serve a small portion of the population. Our mission is to connect them with people all over the country in order to supply them with more customers. We need people like you to step up and help these businesses grow to become successful. Subscribe today and help Veteran entrepreneurs on their mission.
As a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, I am happy to help promote veteran-owned businesses and based on the looks of this box, my husband (who is currently serving in the reserves) will get the most benefit out of this subscription based on the “can I wear those” and “can I have that” questions I received when opening this box!
The products were cushioned with brown paper to keep them from shifting too much during shipping.
I am a big fan of product information sheets and this one went a step further to give info on the businesses featured this month. The theme for July was “Summer of Freedom”.
They included an assortment of flyers and discount codes for future purchases.
Everything in the box! This was a manly sort of box so I enlisted (get it?) my husband’s help in reviewing the products.
Black Rifle Coffee Company makes small-batch coffee that is roasted to order with beans from Brazil and Columbia. The owners are Special Forces veterans, too! I am not a coffee drinker so I gave this Just Black Blend ($4) to my husband for his morning drink and it was just a tad to dark for him but boy, does it smell good!
Epoch Eyewear Epoch 4 Sport Sunglasses ($19.95) have a black frame and smoke-colored lenses and my husband was on them in a second. They have rubbery non-slip arms for comfort and glare-blocking polycarbonate lenses with UV protection. Hubby said he is going to use them when he runs. Epoch Eyewear is a veteran-owned business.
There was an assortment of stickers from Thirty Seconds Out. Evan, the owner, is a veteran who served 20 years in the military and suffered traumatic brain injury and now enjoys a more relaxed work environment. He offers artwork, apparel, and stickers on his website. Featured stickers: Patriotism’s Not Dead ($1.75), Mowing the Lawn ($1.75), and Operator Flag ($3.50).
The Combat Wounded Coalition helps combat-wounded veterans “find a purpose driven life and peace of mind after the impact of war”. The founder is a combat-wounded Navy Seal. I think the idea of the blue cup is to “raise a glass” for all they do for veterans. Wounded Wear, which is part of the coalition, sells clothing for patriots.
There was also a SitRep can cooler with the SitRep logo on one side and the American flag on the other. It certainly seems to be better made than the usual can coolers I have seen.
Overall, I thought that my first SitRep Box was a winner! The items are of nice quality, my husband loves the sunglasses, and I feel like veteran-owned businesses may be helped by the subscription. I would love to see what comes in future boxes. I think August is coffee-themed and September is beer-themed, and my husband would enjoy all of the above.
