With the growing popularity of monthly subscription boxes, it was only a matter of time before someone realized the gaping hole in the off road market. That's where Caleb Austin of Get Lost saw the opportunity to bring quality gear to this community.
The Get Lost Box is geared towards the outdoor enthusiast. Boxes come in two different flavors, the Explorer and the Overlander. Subscriptions include a different package each month containing hand picked items with a focus on quality and usefulness over quantity.
The Overlander box contained a handful of useful kit.
The Explorer box is intended for the camper and other outdoor enthusiasts. The monthly price is listed at $54.99/mo. Each month the package will exceed the sum of its parts with a value of at least $65.
"Our goal is to provide a box every month that contains not only a good value, but also high quality, useful gear, not novelty items or trinkets".

The Overlander box will contain the same items as the Explorer with the addition of a vehicle based product -this month, it's a pair of Extreme LED, Extreme Series 5D LED light pods (it should be noted that the light harness is not included, but is available at extremeledlightbars.com). The monthly price for the Overlander is listed at $124.99/mo. Like the Explorer, the Overlander will also pack more value than the items enclosed with a minimum worth of $135.
Our Overlander came with a postcard with information about each product and a pair of decals.
Packaging was adequate and contained environmentally friendly wood-fiber packing materials.
The July Overlander box came with:
- Power Practical LED light rope and battery
- Gerber Paraframe knife
- Gear Aid Tenacious repair tape
- Extreme LED - Extreme Series 5D LED light pods
Overall, I think that the included kit is both thoughtful and of decent quality. Either subscription would be a great consideration as a gift or to get a new camper (or backpacker) started on the road to becoming equipped for nearly anything. The items in this month's box will be put to use as soon as this weekend. I'm particularly looking forward to testing out the Luminoodle.
