When your gear starts piling atop each other in the corner of your van, your garage or your tent, it’s time to organize. There’s nothing like GearTies from NiteIze. They come in all sorts of sizes and are reusable over and over. They can hold just about anything that’s hangable.
One of my favorites is the 12 inch Clippable Twist Tie (#GLC12-33-R3) rated for 10 pounds or less. It comes with a #2 S-Biner clip attached and can be used indoors or out. The strong wire holds its form, but can also be bent to wrap around just about anything.
No more looking for car keys or flashlight in the middle of the night in your tent. This is something you’ll use over and over as you discover dozens of uses for them. Hang fishing gear, tools, or lawn and garden equipment with the larger ones.
Wrap up computer cords, fashion a stand for your smartphone or clip a small grocery bag to your bike’s handlebars with the smaller ones. There’s no end to its uses.
This was one of the products we featured during the 2014 Outdoor Retailers Show earlier this year, and we wanted to double back and present those items that actually turned out to be as good as we thought they would be. Now that they’ve stood up during our road trips, we can recommend them unequivocally.
