Close, but no.
I purchased a Mystery box for the purposes of review.
The shipping time was good at least. The box left me flat.
Being a Scouter, I had high hopes for the service . First item? A solar power bank lid for a nalgene water bottle. Cool? Yeah, but at $25 it takes up a huge part of the value put into the box. Also a UV rechargeable glow stick. Neat, but probably not very useful in the camping gear. The carabiner rope tightener is more of a hit. I’ll probably pick up a few more for use around camp. Final item? A 5 ltr dry bag. Not bad, but we already have several. Worth the price, but then again.
In the end, I expected more. Nifty little gadgets? Stickers? Camping t shirt? Nope. Lid for a water bottle - bottle not included.

Thanks so much for the review, Charles! We love your feedback because it's so different than our other subscribers (this is actually most subscribers' favorite box: August - "Trail Tech")...

The Seattle Sports PowerLid is one of the niftiest little gadgets we've seen in awhile (we've already included a few bottles/vessels in past boxes, so we liked that it was a universal widemouth lid that could be used with your favorite bottle). What are some of your other ideas??

It sounds like you already have quite a bit of gear; SCOUTbox is primarily meant for scouts that don't have a lot of gear or are looking to explore new brands, learn outdoor skills, etc... Stay tuned for our soon-to-be-released adult scouter box - it sounds like that one will be a perfect fit for you!
