Slap bracelets from the 90s coming back in fashion? Um, probably never. Anyone looking to stay visible while biking or jogging at night, though, should find these SlapLit LED Slap Bracelets a very useful safety accessory.
Made by Nite Ize, this new take on slap bracelets trade in the tacky neon colors and cutesy prints for reflective nylon on the outside with an integrated red LED inside for keeping it visible in the dark. Of course, it still wears like a snap. Just slap the band on your wrist, arm or ankle — it will fasten tight all on its own.
The SlapLit LED Slap Bracelet measures 13.9 inches long, so you can cinch it around a whole load of limbs (even on the neck if you’re really skinny). The entire length of the band lights up during use, powered by a replaceable coin cell battery for up to 100 hours at a time. You can use it as a passive reflector with the LED turned off, have it steady glowing in a bright red glare, or get it flashing for sending onlookers into an epileptic seizure.
Designed for outdoor use, the bands are water-resistant and durable, making them plenty suited for a bunch of outdoor activities. As a bonus, you can use the bracelet to hold your trousers in when riding a bicycle, too, keeping it from tangling with the bike’s gear system.
