It’s March! There are only ten days left until Spring and today is daylight’s saving time. We still have three feet of snow on the ground here in Montana, but it is the perfect time to get ready for camping season. One of the things that I do in March, is that I go through all of our outdoors stuff. This includes our day backs, backpacking packs, camping box, emergency kits and camper. I make sure that anything that is broken get’s thrown out and replenish the things that need to be replaced. And that is one of the reasons that I love the Nomadik Subscription Box. This is our third review AND includes a giveaway!!! Read on for giveaway details. **Please note this post contains affiliate links at no cost to you, but by which we can earn a small commission.

I use a lot of the stuff I get from the Nomadik when I am doing my Spring cleaning for my outdoor gear. It is perfect for upgrading broken items and adding things that I didn’t realize I needed. It’s affordable and depending on what I have gotten throughout the year, I can make a list of items that I want to buy more of because I have tried them. I enjoy opening my box each month and seeing all of the cool stuff. Some of the stuff I have used as stocking stuffers at Christmas, or as birthday presents. My children each have their favorite items and get really excited when the box arrives. And this month, my box for my personal subscription was free, because I used my points!!! Check out these other reviews to see the other reasons we love this box, the November review and the January review.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED Thank you readers for following us and supporting our small business too. And now for our February 2019 box review. This month’s theme was “Better Basecamp”.
Ultra-Power Pro Lantern by 1Tac– This light-weight lamp weighs only 0.79 pounds and is extremely bright with 500 lumens and 360 degree lighting. The lamp life is estimated at 50,000 hours. It turns on by just opening it, has a handle and also a hanging hook, and magnets on the bottom. The lamp is very durable and made from high impact ABS thermoplastic polymer. My thoughts: It is very bright, so it would make a good lamp for hanging in a tree and lighting up the camp site. The handles make it perfect for the little ones to carry and because there are no buttons to turn it on, it would be a nice lamp to keep in the tent for midnight potty runs. I would include this is my camper, car camping box, tool box, car and survival bag.
Paracord Cleats by Readyman– This small gadget allows you to fasten paracord easily without having to fumble or tie knots. These are lightweight at 2.08 ounces and can help you to quickly fasten your paracord for tie-downs and such in minimal-time with less frustration. My thoughts: I did not know these existed. What a cool, little invention and I’ll be adding this to our camping box to use for the awning.
Reflective 550 Heavy Duty Paracord Utility Line by GearAid– This seven-strand, heavy duty paracord is great for when camping. With it’s reflective strands, it’s much easier to see and you are less likely to trip over it. Use it as a clothes line, tying stuff down, hanging bear bags and more, it’s easy to use and lightweight. And, you don’t have to cut the cord if you use this to fasten it. My thoughts: I like that it is reflective and light-weight. Paracord has lots of uses for us and I would essentially take this pretty much everywhere, including backpacking.
Baja Trailmix by Gorillly Goods– This trail mix is organic, raw, paleo, vegan, non-gmo, gluten free and nutrient dense. It has only eight ingredients which you can pronounce and no additives: pumpkin seeds, cilantro, hemp seeds, lime juice, sea salt, nutritional yeast, chili peppers and lime zest. My thoughts: It is always nice to have snacks on hand and I prefer ones that are not crammed with lots of junk. It is nice to try samples of products like this because you don’t want to buy a whole box and then have to throw it out because you don’t like it. Another great item to add to all of our bags and kits.
What a great box this month! This month, Nomadik changed up their box design. A little birdie told me to expect some other fun changes to The Nomadik in the next few months, besides the new box design. I can not wait to see what else they have in store. And don’t forget, be outside with no limits.
