The leaves are changing, the days are shortening, and there’s a chill in the air. It’s fall time, and before you know it, winter will make its icy appearance. But before we head into months of snow, slush, and shivers, let’s get out there and soak in the fall fun.
Very soon we’ll all be setting our clocks back an hour on a Saturday evening, relishing an excuse to get an extra hour of sleep, yet dreading everything else that comes with the end of Daylight Savings Time. Most of us don’t tend to look forward to shorter days, and have trouble adjusting to the change. It’s amazing how just an hour of time can make that much difference, right? Along with that extra hour of z’s, there might be a few things to actually look forward to when we fall back, as well as several ways to help breeze through the adjustment better than ever.
It’s that time of year again when the ghosts, goblins and witches come out to raid your candy bowl. Halloween is just a few short weeks away and it’s time to get those decorations up so you’re ready to scare the bejesus out of your neighborhood children. Nite Ize is here to help you hang, secure, and light up your spine-chilling adornments.
Okay, we admit it: we make a LOT of products. You might say we’re slightly addicted to bringing new, innovative products to market – and we do it not once, but twice a year! With a product line of hundreds, it can be overwhelming to even know where to start when you arrive on the Nite Ize website. So rather than flood you with complex product recommendations, we let our staff do the talking! Nite Ize employees love to “geek out” about our gear. We also all tend to have personal favorites. We asked our team to weigh in on their favorite Nite Ize products, and here’s what they had to say.
Did you know that September is National Preparedness month in the U.S.? With so much going on in the world, you may be asking yourself, “how can I possibly prepare for all the things that could go wrong this year?” The simple answer is, you can’t. But, with relatively minimal effort you can prepare for the most likely types of natural disasters in your part of the country. That is the sentiment behind National Preparedness month. Have a plan in place so that you can be prepared and self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in case a disaster hits where you live. The more people who do this, the less overwhelmed emergency services are in a worst-case-scenario situation. Then they can focus all their efforts on those who need help the most. If you need motivation to start prepping, think of it as a future-kindness to the emergency service workers in your area.
There’s no doubt cycling has become a way for many of us to get out of the house and connect with nature during this time of social distancing. For me, cycling became a way of life in the early 90s, and since then I have seen the evolution of mountain biking, the decline of American road cycling, and now the success of GRAVEL riding.
If you are not familiar with gravel riding, it is the latest trend in the world of cycling. Take a mountain bike and a traditional road bike, put them in a blender and what you come out with is the ultimate adventure machine. Gravel bikes feature drop bars for when on the tarmac, disc brakes for quick and easy braking, and wider tires for stability in the dirt.
Did you know that the term “housewarming” comes from a time when people actually brought gifts of firewood to warm the new home of their friend or family member? Although the type of gifts has evolved and the sentiment is more metaphorical than literal, warming someone’s new home is still a valued tradition.
If you are looking for creative ideas for a housewarming gift that bridges meanings both historical and modern, and that is both thoughtful and useful, we have just the list for you.
If you spend time on social media and have an affinity for clever products to put in your pockets, you might be familiar with the acronym EDC. It stands for Everyday Carry, and it’s just what it sounds like – the pieces of gear you carry with you when you leave the house. When it comes to being prepared everywhere you go, you must choose those pieces of gear wisely, so you have the essentials you need without going overboard and weighing down your pockets.
So what makes an ideal EDC setup? It comes down to personal preferences (as well as what jobs you might encounter while you’re out), but let’s get down to the fundamentals.
