I got my steel to reel box a few days ago and I'm blown away. I was a little bit weary about signing up for one of these subscription boxes, but steel to reel seems like the "reel" deal. Will be putting all of this stuff to good use this fall, and a few things are going into a bugout bag.
I bought this box after trying a couple other subscription boxes that my husband wasnt too thrilled about, he loves this one. Tons of neat and practical things that he was very excited to use. We'll be keeping this one for sure!
I’ve been meaning to review this for some time. I’ve been getting steel to reel club boxes for 4 months now and am pleasantly surprised by the fact that I actually WANT to keep getting them. My first box was great but I was skeptical about how consistent it might be. Four months later and I’m still very impressed by what I’m getting. I’ve used a majority of the products I’ve gotten on 2 camping trips, a few weekends out fishing, and I already have a few things packed for hunting season. There were a couple of items that I couldn’t see myself using, but my son has already claimed them (he’s going to have to get his own box soon haha).
I'll start this off by saying that this is best sub box I've ever bought. So much so that I upgraded to the Elite Explorer box after being so impressed with the Adventurer box. The value definitely did scale with the higher tier box, which is freaken amazing. The last box I received had well over $500 of really great outdoors products in it, and the fact that I paid way less than that makes me a "happy camper"! I'll be sticking with the Elite Explorer and will likely keep steel to reel club in mind for future gift giving situations. If you're reading this, you have my recommendation ;)
I got the steel to reel Elite Explorer box on the holiday sale, it's going to make my son VERY happy. Thank you!
We liked it so much that I order another subscription for myself. I purchased an outdoorsman plus box for my dad and as we were going through everything we were really impressed with the sheer value of this subscription. We paid $60 for this box, but the contents are clearly worth more, not to mention that everything is actually pretty practical. I'd say we're going to be using everything that came at least once in the next 2 weeks. I just put in an order for myself so we won't have to argue over who gets what next month!
My fiance loves these kinds of survivalist gadgets and stuff. we do 2 camping trips a year so he's going to get some good use out of it. The box has a lot of cool brand name stuff.
I have been very skeptical about subscription boxes. When I saw Outdoor Life was sponsoring one it immediately peaked my interest. After some debate I decided to go all in and bought the Elite Explorer. When my first box arrived I was totally dumbfounded at how many items were in the box, 14 items with the value being far above what I paid. I HIGHLY recommend this box! I cannot wait till my next one comes in. Thank you Steel to Reel Club.
Big thumbs up to the customer service team here! I ordered the wrong box at first but they helped me out and got me the box I wanted. It was a gift for my son and it was VERY well received. Hes become a pretty avid hiker and fisherman these days, and tells me that his Adventurer box always suprises him with how thought out the gear is. It's pretty much tailor made for him.
I bought this as a gift for my father and he couldn't be happier! I received the box yesterday and gave it to him last night - he went through all the items in the box with a big smile on his face. He loves the outdoors and was genuinely impressed with the gear in the box, and is already planning on using it on his next camping trip. Looking forward to next month!
Shipping was pretty fast and really enjoyed the contents of the box. I find myself eager to get my next box and plan my next outting around the items I get. good work guys!
This is great box! Highly recommend to anyone who loves the outdoors! Quality products from trusted brands. Can't wait to see what will be in the next one.
I have received several Steel to Reel Survivor Elite boxes and they are amazing! Every time I open them I find I’m adding everything to my SHTF Gobag, camping gear, or everyday carry items in my truck. Quality is excellent!!! They surprise me with innovation and you can see the extensive thought put into these boxes! Everyone should be getting these, especially in the world we live in now!
I received my first Survivor Pro box last week. It took a little longer than I liked to get here. After I opened the box I realized the wait was well worth it. When I signed up I was very skeptical that the ads match the box. After receiving this box I am convinced. I hope next months is as good as this months.
I didn't expect to get so many high end items in these boxes. I consider myself a bit of an outdoorsman but there are quite a few great pieces of gear that I haven't even thought about. I guess that's the point of boxes like these, so I'm pretty happy it worked out!
ONE BAD ASS BOX! I was so pleased with the Items curated for this box! Full size, amazing products! I was absolutely shocked at some of the things that I received it’s great totally worth the purchase. I will be renewing my subscription!
It was nice stuff
Once I received my first box, I was very happy with it and am looking forward to my next one. the only reason for the rating for the shipping, is it too a little longer then usual. Other than that, I'm very pleased.
Just tryin' out the lowest end of the box. Got 3 total.
First box was kinda fun. Had some useful stuff.
It came with 100 foot of Paracord. Niffty.
Great value for the items included. Came out to $22 above what it would have cost me to buy the items on my own in value.
Second box came, it wasn't as exciting as the first box. Less useful items. Half aren't going to be used at all.
It came with a paracord bracelet. Huh.
The value wasn't there. It would have cost me exactly the same amount to get the items on my own. Meh.
Third box came. It basically was garbage. Four items. A multitool that has a 1 star rating. A plastic camp bowl. Just one. Plastic. Seriously. Something else that I forgot about because it was so lame.
And 150 foot of paracord.
Value was terrible. The box cost me nearly $20 more than what it would have cost to get the items on my own. The paracord was exactly the same match for sale for one fifth the price.
I honestly lost money on this when you add in shipping.
This was a poor choice. Box is literally like 4 items of random stuff thrown in a ox. No list of items or any curation.
Products are lousy.
Waste of money.
Marketed to be better than what it was. Products not worth the money I spent on this. May have been nice for a 12 year old boy.
I was hoping for survival or fishing or hunting ... but camo tape, and tiny flashlights etc... would be better suited for my 8 year old
My wife got my an Elite Explorer box from Steel to Reel and we're both blown away by how great the products were when we went through everything. There is no comparison between this box and other similar subscription boxes (we have experience being burned before). This box is going to elevate my hunting trips :)
I had some confusion about shipping, but it was my own fault. Once i got my box i was very happy with what came inside. A really great survival axe that's also a multi-tool, medical kit, camping gear, fishing kit, and a quite a few more products. worth the money for sure.
