At Cairn, we pride ourselves on introducing our subscribers to the freshest, best-in-class outdoor products and brands in the industry. We never include samples or closeouts...our outdoor subscription box is a means of discovery, not a clearinghouse for old product. That’s why it’s so encouraging to see overwhelming stamps of approval from outdoor industry experts.
Award-Winning Outdoor Gear:
In the last two years alone, over a dozen products that Cairn featured in our outdoor subscription box have gone on to be called out by trusted industry-trusted publications like Backpacker Magazine's Editor’s Picks and Outside Magazine's Gear of the Year.
The Freshest Gear, First:
More and more, we get to partner with brands to help launch their newest innovations; which means Cairn Subscribers are often among the first to get their hands on the latest and greatest outdoor products.
Discovery, Even for the Pros:
Whether it be outdoor gear reviewers with decades of experience or longtime outdoor enthusiasts with bins full of equipment, there’s nothing more satisfying than sparking little kid excitement in the eyes of suspicious pros. We’ll admit, the accolades are enough to make us blush.

Support Outdoors for All:
Because Cairn introduces people to items that often work better for them than their existing gear, Cairn’s Gear Up, Give Back program is a creative way for anyone (subscriber or not) to keep gear out of landfills, give it a second life, and support support outdoor recreation opportunities for children and adults with disabilities. Anyone with used outdoor gear and apparel to spare can send it in to the program and it will be cleaned, repaired, and sold, with the net proceeds donated to the Outdoors for All.
