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.
The box arrived, light feeling but full. I’m not sure if you can read the writing on it but by husband got the mail and added a small note. There was no info card included this month.
I’m thinking this will have a home in the locker room for after games. I personally love the Howies logo and think he’s adorable.
This package has enough pieces to cover your whole stick once. It does the front and back plus the heel and toe with the small pieces. It says it will last for 15 games and provide better grip and stick handling. I’m not sure how Hubby will feel about using this but I’m sure he’ll try it out.
Hockey Equipment Deodorizers-$8.00
These are always my personal favourite item in the box. I’m lucky that my Hubby is very conscious about washing his gear so it doesn’t smell. That being said we still have a bunch of gear in our basement and I will tuck these into it myself if he doesn’t. They have a mint scent to them.
Howies White Flex Wrap Roll-$3.50
This is another item I’m not sure will be put to use right away but it’a great thing to have in the lockerroom just incase. Howies seems to have a very professional line of athletic tapes available so this is a great score.
Dr.Cool Flexible Ice and Compression Wrap-Small-$17.99
This little wrap replaces a traditional ice bag. You wet and then freeze this and it can wrap around wrists, ankles, and feet easily. It has velcro to stick it together meaning you can wrap your injury and still have two hands to use. This is another great thing to have in the lockerroom, but I’m not sure they have a freezer……I’m sure the beer fridge will work though, right?
Howies Vintage Tee-$22.00
How fun! This month they included a shirt in the box. I know my hubby will wear this not problem, so it’s good to get. Like I mentioned above I love the logo and won’t even be embarrassed to be seen with him in public in it.
I 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 $66.48, which is higher than I paid for the box. I have a few more months to go and then we’ll see if we renew. I know Hubs is thrilled and wants it to be one we keep so we might have to work out a deal where I get back rubs or something.
