For this year’s Holiday Gift Guide, we asked our Field Team to send us their top two to four Nite Ize products they are giving this season. As expected, Gear Ties came in as a very popular stocking stuffer. Check out the full list from our team and get into the spirit!

 

Anthony Johnson: Action Adventurer & Outdoor Photographer

“The Steelie car mount is our go-to for gifting. It is something that everyone can use, and a great stocking stuffer.”

“We also tend to gift the Nite Ize Radiant 300 Rechargeable Lantern. We've given these to our family and friends who enjoy the outdoors, whether through backpacking or camping or just enjoying grilling on their back porch. It is also fantastic that you can charge other USB devices off the lantern, making this particularly valuable gift for friends and family who spend time in the backwoods.”

“ Finally, for our cycling friends, we have given the Nite Ize Rechargeable Bike Light. You can never have too many bike lights, and these are so bright and rechargeable. The beam is great and makes it easy to see for early morning and evening rides. The multiple settings also allow you to use the lights to alert cars you're on the road. It's a ready safety feature.”

“I always have 3 or 4 attached to my pack in the field. The uses are infinite. On a particular occasion I used one Gear Tie to secure all four legs before loaded this deer into the bed of a truck.”

“This is another staple of my field pack to have handy in a pinch. I pulled out my lantern during this alligator hunt for extra light while securing the jaws and tagging the gator.”

“Our lamps are with us on every hunt to get us in and out in the dark. The red light option provides great light that isn’t as offensive to wild animals.”

INOVA STS Headlamp

“The S-Biner stays on every pack to help attach the extras.”

 

Jason Epperson: Family Travel & Adventure Blogger

“We love the SlapLit LED Bracelets for the kids. They're a great way to keep track of the kids when they’re running around outside at night, at home or in a campground.”

SlapLit LED Slap Wraps

“Gear Ties are great for any handyperson to wrap up extension cords and hoses, but they're also great for kids to play with to make 3D shapes.”


Willi Schmidt: Outdoor Sportsman

“S-Biners are a must for me in the field. I keep a couple attached to my backpack at all times, making it very convenient to attach items to the outside of my pack, quickly and easily. Whether they are plastic or metal, they don't add any meaningful weight and they get a lot of use.”

S-Biner Dual Carabiner

“I keep Gear Ties in my pack and in my truck. Many times they have come in handy, most notably when my truck's wheel lining was coming loose. They were the only thing that would work and they kept the truck together for the remainder of the hunt and the return drive home.”

“This is a go-to lantern on my hunting adventures. With 300 lumens, it gives off plenty of light in a cabin, tent or even in the back of a truck. The ability to re-charge the battery and charge other electronic devices from the lantern make it very practical.”

“The Inova STS headlamp by Nite Ize is an absolute must for me when hunting.  It gives me hands free light for going into my hunting area. The Swipe-To-Shine, 265 lumens is easy to use and plenty bright. The ability use the red light and not spook game as an added bonus.”

 

Heidi Kumm: Fitness Buff & Dog Lover

“We love the dog stuff, especially the light up toys now that it's dark out before we get home from work! The GlowStreak ball + Flashflight Dog Discuit are a daily go-to!”

Jose Flores: Outdoor Sportsman

“I love the Steelies. Whether I’m in my boat, truck, UTV, or wherever, I find something I can stick it to!”

“We love the dog stuff also! The light-up ball and flying disc are easy favorites for our dogs, as it’s all they can play with outside after 4 PM here in Alaska!”

“This season I started to use the lanterns and headlamps much more. I really like the new design on the headlamps. The rechargeable option for the lanterns was a hit this fall.”

Tara Schatz: Action Adventurer & Dog Trainer

"In the winter, we have no choice but to walk our pups in the dark. We use the Spotlit clip-on LED lights to keep our dark dogs visible to others, whether we're on the trail or walking through town."

"Gear ties are indispensable for hikers, campers, and outdoor adventurers. We use them to pack our backpacks, keep our gear inside of our canoe, and organizing for road trips."

"I take a lot of solo road trips, and the Steelie Dash Mount is the best smartphone mount I've ever used. It provides easy access to my maps and my music."

 

Rob “Reker” Kretsch: Outdoor Sportsman

“As stocking stuffers, I’m giving out the See’em Spoke Lights for the little one’s new bike and Gear Ties and CamJam Tie Down straps for all the adults. The Gear Ties are by far the most used piece of gear I own.”

Willi's Nite Ize Picks - Guest Blog Post by Pure Hunting's Willi Schmidt

Willi-Pure_Hunting.jpgAs an avid hunter and outdoorsman, I am always looking for gear that is useful in the field. One company that makes a ton of great gear, but is not known as an "outdoor" or "hunting" company is Nite Ize. There are several products of theirs that I never go into the field without.

Most outdoorsmen need lighting when they head into the field. Nite Ize makes several great options. The INOVA STS Headlamp has 142 lumens on the white, high setting and gives me plenty of light when hiking in the dark or setting up camp. It also has a red option, which is ideal when heading out in the morning and typically doesn't spook game like a white light does. It is a great design and the "Swipe-To-Shine" technology is unique and easy to turn the light on and off. They have an INOVA X5 UV - Ultraviolet LED Flashlight, which is always in my pack as well. The UV light allows you to follow a blood trail, even in the dark.

Nite Ize has a family of cool gadgets too, which I have come to rely on. Their S-Biners are double-gated carabiners that have a ton of uses. I keep several clipped to my backpack all the time, which gives me the ability to clip a water bottle and any other accessory to the outside of my pack easily. I use them inside my tent to clip on a light or hang clothing to dry. Anything clips in easily and stays secure. They are very light weight, come in a ton of sizes, both in plastic and metal and some can even lock, preventing any accidental opening and losing gear.

I also keep several different sizes of Gear Ties in my pack. These cool, plastic coated ties have unlimited uses. I have used the larger sizes to keep my sleeping pad rolled up, hang gear from a tree, strap my elk bugle or rattling antlers to my pack and the smaller sizes are perfect for keeping charging cords organized and untangled. They are quiet, will not damage gear and are waterproof. They come in a ton of different sizes and colors and truly do have unlimited uses.


Another of my favorite products is the Steelie. Although this doesn't have an "in the field" use, I use it while getting to my adventures to secure my phone to the dash of my car. The Steelie allows me to see my screen to follow directions and easily turn it from portrait to landscape. If I need to grab my phone, the magnet makes it easy without having to unsnap or unclip the phone like other phone holders. Everyone in my family has one in their car and we’ve even put on in our golf cart.

Although these are some of my favorite products, it's a very small sample of the products that Nite Ize makes. They also make products like unique key chains, all kinds of electronic holsters and cases, lighted bike and dog accessories and the list goes on and on. Most of their products solve problems you don't even know you have. Be sure to check them out at NiteIze.com to see the full array of products and I am confident that like me, you will find many products you won't be want to head into the field without.
