Ever gone to buy outdoor gear and felt completely overwhelmed by the choices / the reviews / the quality / the price / the ‘cool’ factor / will this actually work… / etc.? Yes, we know your pain.While fielding the same questions over and over at an outdoor e-commerce company, founder Kolin Karchon dreamt not only of going to Isle Royale National Park but also of sending hand picked gear to friends, family and strangers. By chance one day while climbing at Planet Rock, he ran into future co-founder Travis Tamez. Together, they began formulating a rough idea that would later become Isle Box. The two founded the business out of their living room in 2014 and since then, Isle Box has packed many boxes and recently even earned a nice shout out in Outside Magazine. We know how hard it can be starting out or finding the right gear for the right season / situations. From our Starter Box to the Seasonal Box to the Monthly Box, we would never send or sell something we wouldn’t use ourselves. Our gear is hand picked for you. The items sent are high quality and will absolutely be useful and not end up in the trash. Our hope is that our boxes will get you outside and empower you take on challenges you never would before. It’s time to ditch the couch, ditch your comfort zone and finally get outside and explore the world around you.
*Based in Detroit, Michigan, Isle Box gets its name from the national park Isle Royale, located in the middle of Lake Superior.*
