Nomadik is a subscription box for outdoor enthusiasts. Each monthly box includes functional gear designed to increase your fun in the outdoors. All products have been trail tested by an outdoor adventurer and often incorporate new technologies. Every box has three to six pieces of unique, newly-released, or just plain ultra-handy gear from premium brands.
DEAL: Save 10% off any subscription with coupon code HELLO10.
Everything is durable outdoorsy type stuff, so no need for tons of packing material.
The theme for August 2018 is Packed Up.
Nomadik always includes a Challenge card to encourage you to get out and use your items in the wild.
The info card lists a bit about each item in the box and its approximate value. There is always a bit of seasonal inspirational content, too.
Everything in my box!
DripDrop ORS Dehydration Relief ($4.51) This innovative powder stick contains three times electrolytes compared to other sports drinks but with half a sugar content. It transforms a regular water into a medical grade hydration drink.
Each pack is devised to relieve dehydration and let your body recover quickly from muscle cramps, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue, as it shortens the time it takes for the fluid and electrolytes to be absorbed in the bloodstream.
It’s so handy and easy to prepare, making it ideal for workout sessions, during travel, or even in the office! I love the idea of this product, as most hikers like to get their energy from bars and snacks, and this keeps the focus on hydration and electrolytes, not calories.
Granger’s Single Clothing Wash + Repel ($2) It’s a unique wash-in product designed to deliver effective cleaning and waterproofing in a single wash cycle. This product is based on a fluorocarbon-free technology formulated to work on all outdoor and technical fabrics, and is the perfect way to maintain all your clothing to its original level of performance! What an awesome idea — this solves the issue of having sweat-drenched gear that you are afraid to ruin by washing with detergent.
Granger’s Gear Cleaner ($9) This outdoor gear cleaner made from England is all you need to clean all of your clothing, including your favorite footwear!
It’s a water-based, fluorocarbon-free spray-on cleaner designed to remove dirt and stains and to neutralize odors without using a washing machine. Perfect for getting the grime off gear that can’t be machine washed.
Gear Aid Elastic Shockcord ($6.91) This shockcord is an 84-inch elastic cord you can use to tighten tarps, hammocks, replace cord in tent poles and jackets, or even fasten your gear to packs.
Gobi Gear SegSac ($39.99) A perfect companion for all travelers, this patented bag is a three-compartment stuff sack made from 30D Cordura Brand rip-stop nylon fabric. It has three inner dividers to keep your gear exactly how you packed it and easy to reach when you need it.
It has a 15-liter capacity, and weighs a mind-blowing 3.6 ounces, which is super lightweight!
This bag features a water-resistant material, making sure that all your clothes and gadgets inside the bag stay dry.
It is primarily divided into two segments, a stuff sack and a pair of end caps connected with webbing.
The interior is divided in three sections by a yellow nylon divider. The bright color makes it easy to see, and the division of the space keeps items where you put them, removing the need to rummage.
Though the permanent dividers make it less than ideal for a standard size sleeping bag, the three compartments are perfect for holding clothing and other compressible gear. You could pack three full changes of clothing in here, and the divider would even keep your dirty clothes apart from the clean ones.
The compressed hood and straps are double stitched, making sure that it can withstand a great amount of pressure without breaking. One pair of straps is is just cinch-able for compression.
The other pair can both be cinched and unsnapped for easy access to the contents. This bag is super handy for any space-saving needs, whether you are on the trail, packing the car for a day trip, or merely maximizing space when stowing some gear in your closet.
Nomadik has amazed me once again! They have delivered another awesome curation of outdoor equipment and items that are very usable for every kind of traveler. What stood out for me this month is of, course, the Gobi Gear SegSac bag. I love that Nomadik only sends REAL gear — everything is made by premium brands for real outdoor use, with no gimmicks or props. If you’re someone who constantly goes on adventures, this subscription is definitely one to try!
