The Penalty Box August 2017

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.

For what I think is the fourth month in a row the box has changed.  They are obviously trying to come up with a logo and keep sending out different options.  The inside of the box had already been rifled through by an impatient man so I can’t tell how it looked originally.  The card is stuck onto the inside of the lid this month and talks about back to school and hockey time.

Biosteel High-Performance Sports Mix-$1.33 x 2

These drink powders are sugar, caffeine, and gluten-free.  They provide energy and reduce muscle and mental fatigue.  This is the third time that they have sent out these samples but they are an easy replacement for Gatorade in the locker room.

20170912_202246

MAXX Stickhandling & Shooting Ball-$12.99

This is an 8oz ball that is made to help players build stronger forearms and hands for a harder and more accurate shot.  It has a steel core and says that it helps because of the size of it and how it rolls on the floor and off your stick.  I don’t know if the guys use these but we’re received a few different ones in this box and none are kicking around so they have gone somewhere.

20170912_202231

Renfrew Colored Grip Hockey Tape-$2.99

This looks like athletic tape but it is actually for your stick. It sticks to itself, you can use it alone or over other tapes, and it leaves no residue behind.  It comes in plenty of colours but black is a good choice for us.

20170912_202210

Bauer Core Performance Tall Skate Sock-$13.99

These socks are a type of compression sock.  They are treated to stop them from stinking and they also have a fancy type of toe that stops bunching up.  They have some fun designs on them and who doesn’t love a man in knee-high socks?

20170912_202148

Bauer Team Short Sleeved Tee-$27.95

This is a tee shirt that is made to be used as a team shirt.  It is left plain on purpose so that you can add your logo to it and have everyone look exactly the same.  Left on its own like this, it has the Bauer logo on the left shoulder and is a soft black tee.  It’s nice to receive something like this in the box.

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 anyway, plus some things that are helpful to his game.  This box had a value of $60.58, which is almost double last month and much closer to where I think it should be. I know Hubs is thrilled and wants it to be one we keep but I have cancelled this box just because the last few months have been super disappointing and low valued.  If you want to check them out visit  http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

 

 

The Penalty Box July 2017

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 logo has changed up this month, though the box is the same size as it always has been.  Things look pretty full once I got it open.

20170802_185440

They have a card included that tells you a message from the founder instead of an item list.  This time it’s letting you know the box was a little late due to a shipment issue but it wasn’t that bad from our normal.

20170802_185450

Howies Friction Hockey Tape-$4.25

This tape is tacky on both sides so that you get more control over the puck.  We have received this before but I’m not sure how it went over.  I can only see this as being a good thing since I’ve seen this team play before.

20170802_185503

Howies Hockey Stick Wax-$6.00

Okay…this smells amazing!!!  I want to rub it all over or lick it or something.  The actual use is to add grip to your stick for puck control while preventing ice and snow build-up on the blade.  I have never seen this in our house before but it might just live in a hockey bag and that is a no go zone for me.  In a side note…..it says do not eat on the back so I’m not the only one who thinks it smells good.  However, this is also a duplicate item for us.

20170802_185516

Howie’s 3’x6yd Black Flex Wrap Roll-$4.50

I think this is a fantastic thing to have included in the box.  We did receive a very similar item a few months ago.  This wrap is great for wrists and ankles to stabilize them.  My hubby tells me that hockey players also use this to wrap the butts of their sticks which I think is a horrible waste of a good product.  Maybe I should just keep this so it isn’t wasted that way?

20170802_185530

No Sweat Sweat Absorbing Disposable Helmet Liner-$6.99

This is a three pack of breathable material liners that stick into the front of your helmet to absorb the sweat before it can run down your head and into your eyes.  It also stops your helmet from smelling because of that sweat.  These are really neat and something we will be trying for the first time.

20170802_185543

Howie’s Boil N’ Bite Mouthguard-$3.00

While I understand that these are things that should be worn and used all the time, it doesn’t happen in this house.  This is another item that had a very similar duplicate sent out two months ago.  20170802_185600

Howie’s Winter Beanie-$14.99

Who doesn’t want a new toque as winter gets closer?  This one feels thick and not cheap.  It has the Howie’s printed on both sides.  It’s a strong Canadian colour, so it’ll get used.

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 anyway, plus some things that are helpful to his game.  This box had a value of $39.72, which is higher than I last month but still way too low for what the box costs.   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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

 

The Penalty Box June 2017

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 is the same as last month on the outside.  Inside I can see a few things but besides maybe a hat peeking out, it’s pretty hidden as to what is in there.

20170704_180822

There is a card in the box that talks about what’s going on and tells a couple of the items inside.

20170704_180836

Howie’s Accessory Bag-$11.00

This bag can be used either as a shaving kit for the guys or to store all your hockey tapes and little bits that can fall into the bottom of the big hockey bag.  I think this is a good get and I’m sure it will be put to use.

20170704_180846

Howie’s Rookie Season Hat-$13.99

Hubs has already claimed this hat and has been wearing it since it took me a little while to get this review done.  It is a snap back trucker hat in the old school style.  It is something that really made this box for my Hubby.

20170704_180857

Fila Cool Body Sport Towel-$2.99

This seems to be geared mostly to tennis players but I think any one who plays sports would find these useful.  It’s a 1×2′ towel that has things in it to invigorate you and refresh you after you’re done playing.  It also has tea tree oil in it which has anti-bacterial properties.

20170704_180907

Plackers Micro Mint Dental Flossers-$1.50

This is a twelve pack of dental flossers.  I’m not really sure how this is useful to a hockey player since half of them are missing teeth anyways.  The ones that do have them don’t do much eating in the locker room after a game but I guess if they have a hot date with a puck bunny afterward they might want to freshen their teeth up.

20170704_180918

Pocket Comb-$1.32

I guess this box is all about making yourself acceptable once the game is done.  This is your basic comb that the old guys keep in their back pocket and whip out to give a once over to that gelled hair.  Hubby has plans to use this in his beard.

20170704_180929

TruEnergy Sport Shot-$2.85

This is a healthier version of an energy shot.  It contains natural caffeine, vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants, and coconut water.  It is basically a mix of Red Bull and Gatorade.  This one is Citrus Mango flavoured.

20170704_180949

Howie’s Clear Shin Pad Tape-$3.00

Sock tape is always needed.  They do tend to send at least one roll of tape with each box, which makes sense as it’s a hockey box.  Hockey requires tape.   There’s no way around that fact.

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 anyway, plus some things that are helpful to his game.  This box had a value of $36.65, which is very, very low and way less than the box price.  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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

The Penalty Box May 2017

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 came as usual.  This month there was no list of items included but May is not the month when too many are thinking about hockey.

20170530_195147

A&R Mouthguard-$1.49

This is a moldable mouth guard.  You pop it in boiling water, dip it in cold, and then put it in your mouth and bite down.  I don’t think that my Hubby wears one of these when he plays but maybe he should start as I don’t want to be married to the toothless wonder because he thought he was in the playoffs.

20170530_195209

Howies USA Flag Hockey Tape-$4.50

I think that if this was just a striped roll of tape it would go over better here.  I don’t know that this will get used very much with the American flag on it.  Maybe there is an American on the team that will be happy to use this or it will end up on practice sticks to use it up.

20170530_195221

A&R Shin Straps-$8.99

These are to be used in place of tape to keep your socks up.  There are four straps on the package, two for the upper leg and two for the lower.  They are 2″ wide elastic with Velcro closures.

20170530_195237

Howies Friction Hockey Tape-$4.25

This tape is tacky on both sides so that you get more control over the puck.  We have received this before but I’m not sure how it went over.  I can only see this as being a good thing since I’ve seen this team play before.

20170530_195304

Tacki-Mac Command Grip-$5.25

This is the grip that goes on the top of your stick.  It replaces the tape that would normally be there.  It has its own double sided tape that it comes with that you apply first, get that wet, and slide on the cover.  The website that sells them has some interesting ways of describing this item.  You can check it out for yourself here.

20170530_195317

A&R Chin Strap-$5.99

This is another item in this box that might not get used by my Hubby.  This is a chin strap that is more highly suited to a younger player.  We know a few of those so I’m thinking this will find a home somewhere.

20170530_195328

A&R Multi-Tool Screwdriver-$9.99

This is a small tool that you can keep in your hockey bag.  You can use this to attach visors or cages, repair helmets, or adjust masks.  It gives you a Phillips head, flat head, and an Allen wrench.  I’m sure this will be a great addition to the bench and locker room.

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 anyway, plus some things that are helpful to his game.  This box had a value of $40.46, which is very low and less then the box price.  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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

The Penalty Box April 2017

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.

20170430_185107

Howies Koozie-$5.00

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.

20170430_185115

BladeTape White-$9.99

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.

20170430_185121

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.

20170430_185133

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.

20170430_185146

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?

20170430_185211

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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

 

The Penalty Box March 2017

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.

20170328_185420

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.

20170328_185457

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.

20170328_185512

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.

20170328_185445

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.

20170328_185434

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.

20170328_185542

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.

20170328_185520

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.

20170328_185617

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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

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 items were well hidden in packing peanuts this month.  There was also no card telling about what things could be in here.  This might be interesting.

20170301_182510Howies Hockey Tape-$5.00

As you can see from the picture, packing peanuts and tape do not mix well.  I’ve heard no complaints from the other half about the quality of the tape we’ve received so I’m thinking they’ve been good.  The rolls are normal sized and black is never a bad colour choice to receive.

20170301_182524Smart Hockey Stickhandling & Shooting Puck-$14.99

This is a very fancy plastic puck.  It has some type of stabilizers in it to mimic the feel and movement of a real puck on ice.  I don’t know if this is a useful thing but I’ve watched my hubby play and he could probably use the practice.

20170301_182540

A&R The Re-Edger Skate Sharpener-$14.99

Now this one seems like something handy to have on the bench.  This little tool can repair edges and remove nicks.  It has the v-blades on top and a sharpening stone on the base of the handle.

20170301_182619

Miracle Flow Flow Enhancing Shampoo-$3.00 60mL

This smells like mint and is made specifically for longer hair.  It is supposed to add shine and luster.  It says you’ll know when it’s working because you’ll feel the tingle.  Not something I want to think about happening when there is a group of men in a shower together.

20170301_182634

Clap Balm Hockey Hand Deodorant-$9.99

This cream has a slight lemon scent to me.  It is made to be applied after your game to make your hands not stink like the leather of you sweaty gloves.  I don’t smell my hubby’s hands after hockey so I have no clue if this is needed or not but I’m all for anything that makes hockey stink go away.

20170301_182650

Metal Lace Puller-$1.95

It took me some Googling to figure out what this thing is.  Now that I’ve found out, I have no clue how you’d use it.  Can’t you just get a buddy to tighten your laces??

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 $49.92, which is higher than I paid for the box but just covers it with shipping.  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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/

The Penalty Box December 2016

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 that showed up was simple but told you everything you needed to know about what was inside.  Once I opened it up, I could see…..nothing …..just the paper laying on top and a few edges of something.

20161228_141121

This sheet tells you all the possible items that were in all of the boxes that they sent out.  This means that you will not get everything but a selection of things that are listed.  It also tells you that if you see something you really want, email them and they will sell it to you at a discount.

Howies Loaded Tape Tin-$14.00

This is cool.  It’s a Howies branded tin that holds three rolls of tape.  Inside were a white, blue, and black roll.  The black one seems a bit different in texture than the other two but like I said above I don’t really know enough to judge.

20161228_141435

Howies Royal Blue Waxed Skate Laces-$6.25

This is a set of 108″ long waxed laces.  The wax gives them extra grip so they stay tied up.  This length is made to be used for a senior size 8-10 skate and that is perfect for our house.

20161228_141350

Howies Hockey Fine Skate Stone-$6.99

This is used to repair minor nicks and damage to your skate blade to get you through until you can get them sharpened again.  This seems like a good thing to have on the bench with you.

Howies Hockey Stick Wax-$6.00

Okay…this smells amazing!!!  I want to rub it all over or lick it or something.  The actual use is to add grip to your stick for puck control while preventing ice and snow build-up on the blade.  I have never seen this in our house before but it might just live in a hockey bag and that is a no go zone for me.  In a side note…..it says do not eat on the back so I’m not the only one who thinks it smells good.

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.

Warrior Speed Ball-$2.50

This is different from above in that it’s foam and it’s made for playing competitive mini hockey.  I didn’t know that was a thing.  It’s made to slide easily over carpet and be soft enough to take in the face without serious hurt.

The Adrenaline Lacrosse Vendetta Sock-$14.99

While these socks are not specifically made for hockey I’m thinking the technology in them is good for any sport.  They feature antibunching, enhanced arch support, a breathable top, padded base, and reinforced toe and heel.

Biosteel High-Performance Sports Mix-$1.33 x 2

These drink powders are sugar, caffeine, and gluten free.  They provide energy and reduce muscle and mental fatigue.  I find it amusing that they attached the tubes to the card with hockey tape.  These guys are all hockey all the time.

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 $57.34, which is higher than I paid for the box but only just because of the shipping costs.  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.  If you want to check them out visit http://www.penaltybox.co/subscribe/
