Coal Headwear – The Standard Se Merino. This cute and comfortable beanie comes with a patch in the front where you can slip the Air Headlamp that you received in the October collection.

Seen here with the headlamp removed from the headband it came with.

It was really easy to put it there and even though the headlamp seems heavy like this, once you were the beanie, it’s still comfortable and stays in place. This was a great idea as headlamp are quite useful even in the middle of the winter. I will probably keep it in the car as I have to travel often at night.

Defunkify Active Spray. It’s a spray made with peppermint and rosemary oil as well as ionic silver to deodorize the funky smell from shoes, pads, helmets and other gear that you can’t launder. The addition of the rosemary tones down the sweet peppermint. It’s a great scent. I’ll keep it around for my winter working boots!

All Good Sunstick 30 SPF. I love sunsticks! I find them easy to apply everywhere and I don’t get my hands coated with sticky sunscreen. This is made with Zinc Oxyde, organic jojoba, coconut and avocado oils. This is a good addition to a winter box as the sun over here gets crazy with the reflection on the snow!

Huppybar – Apple Cinnamon Raisin. A yummy snack full of apples, raisins and cinnamon, with almond, flax seeds, sesame seeds, cashews, gluten free oats and other delicious ingredients, this was a satisfying bar!

Somehow, even though the value was still there, this box was a bit of a let down for me. I felt like something was missing. I’m still happy with everything I received, like the defunkify for the winter boots and the beanie, but it didn’t feel like a collection of items that works together. I’m glad that they added the beanie that works well with a previous item (the air headlamp). I’m looking forward to see how this box will tie in with the incoming ones!
