It’s getting past the point where it’s okay to tell yourself that it is too early to be doing holiday shopping. With that in mind, these products from Nite Ize would make great gifts for officemates and friends as well as great stocking stuffers for family.
The BugLit Micro Flashlight is great for hands free lighting. The flexible legs let the BugLit grip a variety of surfaces. Hang it in your tent, loop it on your shirt, or even stand it up for nighttime reading. It has a 10 hour run time on the high 6 lumen setting and 22 hours on the low 1 lumen setting. The BugLit retails for $12.99 and is available in a variety of body colors.
Similar to the BugLit is the TwistLit bike light. I reviewed the TwistLit here. The TwistLit offers a lot of peace of mind for a little price. The TwistLit retails for $8.99.
The legs of the BugLit and the TwistLit borrow the technology of what is perhaps my favorite item from Nite Ize, the Gear Tie Rubber Twist Tie. The Gear Ties come in sizes ranging from 3” to 64”. The uses for this ingenious yet simple product are near infinite. If you see me out on the gravel roads, you’ll see a Gear Tie securing my spare tube to my saddle, and there are likely others in my frame bag because the variety of uses for these makes them great to have along just in case.
The Nite Ize DoohicKey ClipKey is a compact multi-tool about the size of a regular key which can clip to a belt loop or your keychain via a built-in carabiner. It is a very handy tool, especially considering its small size and low price. For $4.99 you get a slotted head screwdriver, a sharp edge for scoring marks on surfaces, a serrated edge for cutting, and a pry-top bottle opener. The DoohicKey is available in black or stainless finishes.
The SlideLock Carabiner from Nite Ize holds small items and gear securely thanks to its locking gate making it great for holding keys, rings, and other valuables. The SlideLock comes in three sizes ranges from about 1.7” long to just over 4.5” and the prices range from $3.39 to $6.99.
These are just a few of the innovative products from Nite Ize. Be sure to browse their site for other ideas. These are great gifts that won’t break the bank. Also, there are two advantages to you finishing your shopping before November 30. (1) Free shipping on orders over $45 with the code FSAL1115, and (2) a lower stress level having finally done what you always promise yourself you will do by not waiting until the last minute for holiday shopping.
