What’s the first thing you do when you open a new loaf of bread for the first time? I’m guessing you do just like every other red-blooded American male does: You pull off the twist tie and throw it away. Then you take the butt of the loaf and give it to the Lab at your side and, when you’re done making your sandwich, you grab the open bag, spin the hanging loaf and tuck the end underneath.
Sandwich made and bread bag “re-sealed” … man-style.
Admit it: You hate that twist tie … and for good reason. Murphy’s Law dictates that no matter what, you’ll always turn that tie the wrong way when trying to get to your bread. And they never, ever, go away. There always seems to be one laying on a counter or on the floor, tucked up against the mop boards of your cabinets. They’re annoying and worthless.
But did you know you can get man-grade twist ties?
Check out the Nite Ize GearTie. It’s the definition of “duh.”
Trying to secure a set of noisy rattling antlers to your daypack? Got a rifle case that wants to slide off your ATV on bumpy terrain? Can’t get your ground blind to stand and store nicely in the corner of your garage?
Or, can you say, “Portable bow and gun hanger?”
The GearTies come in seven different lengths, ranging from 3 to 64 inches long, have a rubber exterior that grips gear and are completely reusable.
The limits of their use is bound only by your imagination, and it’s a product that’s quickly become as essential in my daypack as my hunting knife.
They’re very inexpensive and will make your life easier in ways you can’t imagine until you’re using them. So, does it really matter who thought of it?
P.S. By the way, you’re not getting my Mathews.
