Every three months, we pile a bunch of GQ editor-endorsed goodies in a box: menswear essentials, top-tier grooming products, gear we want for ourselves. Then we ship that GQ Box—which is always worth way more than it costs—to your house. (You can see more details here, though that’s the gist.) But today marks a big leap forward for the premise. Why? Because we’re dropping our first-ever Great Outdoors Box, packed with all the stuff you need to conquer whatever Mother Nature throws at you this season.
What’s inside this limited-edition version of the GQ Box? Good question. To paraphrase the intrepid boy scout from Up: Adventure is out there—and the next time you feel it calling your name, it’d behoove you to gear up accordingly. What does that mean, practically speaking? You’re about to find out—and for a hell of deal.
That’s because the limited-edition Outdoor Essentials Box contains more than $235 in goods—two hundred thirty five dollars!—from some of the roughest, toughest, all-around best brands in the biz. And it’s limited-edition because, well, we’re not making a lot of these boxes.
So what’s it gonna cost you? That depends.
If you’re not a GQ Box subscriber, this limited-edition version of the GQ Box costs $129. (That’s still a screaming deal, given what’s inside would sell for over $235.)
But if you’re already a GQ Box subscriber? You’ll only pay $79.
(This is where we’ll also note that each GQ Box costs only $59, and a full-year subscription—with 4 boxes—costs only $216. You can do the math there…)
