The Penalty Box is a monthly subscription that sends out items for hockey players. They promise to include basic items, skills training, performance wear, and deals. They offer two different plans, The Minor Leaguer, and The Penalty Box. Whichever one you choose, you then get to pick from three age levels, Age 13 and Under, 13+, and Beer Leaguer, which determines the items that will be in your box. Prices start at $29.99 a month and go up from there. They also do a Grab Bag for $21.99 a month that is a mix of anything. They have an online shop that sells some items individually as well. My Hubby has been after me for a while to find him a box and one that is hockey related to boot. That has been impossible until this one so let’s see if we can make him happy with whatever is inside. I also want to mention that I only know things about hockey that have been absorbed by osmosis so if I’m wildly off in describing something, that’s why.
Well, I guess there’s a hat in here. That and the info card are all I can see at this point.
They send out a card that lists all the possible items you might receive based on your box type. The card also lets you know a little about what they have going on each month and how you can get more of something you liked.
Howie’s Clear Shin Pad Tape-$4.50
I always thought this was called sock tape, who knew? The seem to send out at least one roll of Howie’s tape per box but it seems to be something that is always needed so there have been no complaints.
A&R Sports Low Bounce Hockey Ball-$4.00
This street hockey ball is made to be used when it’s warmer than 60 degrees F. I guess you could use this to practice your skills if you didn’t play street hockey.
Epic Wipes The Massive Wet Wipe-$2.50
This package contains one big ass wipe. It is 31.5″x19.7″. You can use it to get your whole manly body clean in those times you just can’t get to a shower. It is biodegradable and made from bamboo fibers.
Howie’s Post Game Lid-$25.00
This hat has the traditional trucker hat snap back. It has the Howie’s brand name on it in a few places but nothing loud or obnoxious. Hubs said he likes it and it fits him so I guess it’s a win.
Howie’s Hockey Scissors-$8.00
These are a 6″ pair of scissors with stainless steel blades for cutting your hockey tape. According to the website, they will cut cleanly and not snag your tape so you can achieve the perfect wrap on your stick.
Swedish Wood Stick-Handling Ball-$3.95
So this is used to increase your handling of the puck. You practice with this little, light, wood ball and by gaining control of it, you become a better puck handler. Or so Google tells me.
Vitalsox Performance Graduated Compression Socks-$35.00
Holy expensive socks Batman! These extra special socks, (for $35 they must be), are made to boost your performance, stimulate blood circulation, relieve cramps, and are wicking. They even have a padded footbed.
wasn’t sure what types of things this box would send out and whether or not my hubby would like it. Turns out, this is everything he could want in a hockey box. It gave him a bunch of useful items that he would be buying anyways, plus some things that are helpful to his game. This box had a value of $82.95, which is one of the higher values we’ve received. I know Hubs is thrilled and wants this box to be one we keep so we might have to work out a deal where I get back rubs or something.
