Product Review - The SlapLit

About the Product 
Don't let from dusk till dawn keep you indoors. Instead, accessorize with Nite Ize's SlapLit and be safe and seen while enjoying what the dark has to offer.

The SlapLit is another clever invention from Nite Ize, the brand geared towards keeping active individuals safe both around the home and out enjoying their hobbies. Similar to the slap bracelets of yore, this newest offering is an LED cuff that can be attached to wrists, ankles, handlebars and more. Simply turn on the light, slap it on the desired target, and start enjoying the night.

The SlapLit's durable nylon casing houses a bright red easy-to-activate light and is patterned with a reflective spider web design. Its slim build and weight of only 1.5 ounces means this bracelet won't get in the way while running, hiking, or kayaking, and can still provide a level of active illumination for added protection.

Kids in particular gravitate toward the fun concept behind the bracelet, making it easy for parents to ensure their kids will want to keep it on when warm summer evenings lead to longer playtimes outdoors. If a neighborhood game of Frisbee leads late into the night, mom and dad can easily keep an eye on their tots without worry.

When getting back to nature, use the SlapLit to navigate campsite trails, find restrooms, and get safely around on foot or by bicycle. The red light can be set to either a glow or flash mode, ensuring that the wearer will be visible to cars and others when activated. If Fido manages to score a seat on the next trip, attach the SlapLit to his collar and keep track of his whereabouts while roasting s'mores over the campfire.

Nite Ize specializes in bringing active individuals useful items that help simplify life and make their favorite hobbies even more satisfying. Nite Ize has been raising the hardware industry's bar since a nighttime fishing trip gone awry in 1989. After losing his flashlight to the lake, President of the company Rick Case create the the Headband Mini Flashlight Holder. Since that first product he has been adding durable, functional, life and time-saving products to the marketplace.

My Take on the Product
When you work out in the summer, for me, who enjoys jogging, the heat can be unbearable unless you run in the early morning or later in the evening. When you do this though there are always concerns about people not seeing me on the road.

This product worked very well. It conformed easily to my arm and was comfortable to wear. I found that it provided a bright light to let people know where I was at all time and no matter if I am running or riding my bike after dark this will definitely help in overall visibility!
