Cairn is a monthly subscription box (or bag!) for those who love spending time in the outdoors. Each month, you can expect to receive 3-6 cool products that will help you enjoy your time in the outdoors even more. Subscriptions cost $29.99 each month, but the cost goes down with longer subscriptions. Shipping is free for US subscribers and $5 to Canada.
Cairn promises that the total retail value of the items in each box will exceed $50, with a mix of gear, apparel, food, skin care, and emergency tools. If you complete the subscriber profile, the box will be curated to best match your outdoor lifestyle. As such, most months will see a variation of boxes, while there may be some months when everyone will get the same thing.
Every month, you receive a newsletter with some information and discount codes to the products included in this month’s collection. Thie month’s theme is Showing Up and this collection will help us getting better prepared to our time outside.
We get full information about the items included in the box.

The back of the bag lists everything included in it. This is quite useful as you’ll be able to refill it after every excursion and get it ready for the next one. Having it printed on the back is so much more convenient than having the list on a piece of paper that will be lost at some point.

Lemon coconut Bivy Bar. This bar is made with organic ingredients such as coconut, honey, almond butter, oats, brown rice crips, lemon extract and ground ginger. It is gluten-free and it’s quite good and filling.
This “Showing Up” theme box contains very useful items for the weekend hikes that will happen all summer long. I’m glad to have a small medical kit that contain a lot of useful items without being overly bulking and taking to much of the needed room in my backpack.
