Everything in my box!

BLDG Active Repair Hydrogel ($30) This hydrogel works great on skin blemishes and skin irritations, even on wounds. It kick-starts your body’s natural repair mechanism, actually encouraging healing of wounds and irritation.

The secret to this technology is hypochlorous acid, a compound produced by your body’s own white blood cells.

It has been proven to kill bacteria and reduce contamination. At the same time it also has regenerative effects that helps the skin heal faster.

A large sticker was included for new fans of the product.

Uncle Bill’s Silver Gripper Tweezers ($8) These are light, sturdy tweezers that are great for your every “tweezing” need.

The tweezers are made of high quality stainless steel and have precision-ground points allowing great accuracy. The hefty blades are thick enough to not twist or bend, even with heavy use.

The Silver gripper comes with a stainless steel point cover that helps keep the ends pointed and precise. Plus, it prevents you from jabbing yourself while fumbling for them in a drawer, and it prevents them from scratching up other items tossed in with them.

The tension of the tweezers holds them in the cover, and the holes in the tweezers and cover let you hang either on a nail.

The pointed ends are scored on the inside to ensure a good grip on the tiniest objects.

They are made in the U.S.A. from spring-tempered stainless steel. These are definitely solid, have good resistance when squeezing (so you can hold something firmly). The tip narrows very rapidly, so the control is excellent.

MPOWERED Luci EMRG ($14.95) This emergency light takes portability to greater heights. It’s that one light that is so portable, you can take it virtually anywhere. At only 2.4 oz, it is very lightweight, and it packs relatively flat, so you can easily stow it.

The solar panel can fully charge the unit with 8 hours of exposure to direct sunlight.

The four ultrabright LED lights are strategically placed inside the inflatable container. A few puffs is sufficient to blow it up.

When inflated, the LUCI light emits light with a frosted glass effect (mostly from the moisture in my breath), letting the light glow softly.

This portable light works great while you are traveling, camping or as an emergency kit item.

It has four different lighting modes that lets you go from bright, super bright, flashing and S.O.S. mode. It can act as a lantern, flashlight or as an emergency light.

This was a useful set of gear. I’m always looking for a good pair of tweezers, and the light is a great item to have, even if just as part of your emergency kit. The coolest item this time, though, was the active repair hydrogel. It’s a great item I hadn’t seen before, and it is emblematic of the way Nomadik incorporates the newest tech into its boxes.

Nomadik is a really fun box for anyone who enjoys casual or frequent hiking, tent camping, animal tracking and just hanging out in the outdoors. I love the way the box works in new tech and gear without abandoning its reverence for the purity of the outdoors experience, focusing on a few high-quality items that are truly useful for any outdoor enthusiast. Nomadic makes a great gear update for constant adventurers and a fun motivational kit for those who get out less often.
