Great Minds Think Alike on Great Gear

At Cairn, we pride ourselves on introducing our subscribers to the freshest, best-in-class products and brands in the outdoor industry. 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 products. 

We trail test the samples we receive and only feature the products that we truly believe will be a positive addition to our subscribers' time outside. That's why it's such a thrill for us to see products we've featured called out in trusted publications like Backpacker Magazine's Gear Guide and Outside Magazine's Gear of the Year.

It's a monthly reminder that what matters most to you is just outside. Inside every Cairn box is a curated collection of innovative products, gadgets, and gear that will inspire you to get outdoors. Gear up and get out(side)! Learn More.
