This was my first box that I waited a month to get and was disappointed. I thought this would be hiking kit but the 9 oz tumbler is just another container to carry around. It's only practical to carry, not to cook with or anything that I can think of (other than cold soaking...yuck). Hope the next one is better. So far it seems like Hiker Crate is like all of the other outdoor/hiking sub boxes.
Overall had high expectations for box. The amount spent on box doesn’t show in the contents. Couple protein bars, couple coffee samples, a dried meal and glasses. Wanted to love it and keep it going but wasn’t really worth the price. Sorry guys, if you make improvements I’d come back!
I had watched a couple of unboxing videos and was hoping for a box that delivered what those did; some gear I didn't know I need and some tasty foods for on the trail. This was my first box but it was a little disappointing. The oatmeal stuff was pretty good, but I had it at home since I don't have a way to heat water while just hiking, the little coffee bites were decent and the jerky was fine. The gear portion was what was disappointing. I don't know anybody that does outdoor things that would get excited to try a new waterproofing spray. I have a favorite brand of this and it just wasn't the quirky, splurge gear I'd seen on unboxing videos. I'm going to give it another try though.
I really liked the Hiker Crate this month, the snacks were good and the "Light My Fire" products were useful and interesting. Unfortunately there was a manufacturing defect in the emergency whistle so it doesn't work at all. Other than that I'm pretty happy with the service and looking forward to the next box.
