Welcome to NicheLab. We are the inventors
of unique, common sense products that work.
first two products were BottleSox and TubeSox.They were made to keep drinks cold in bike water bottles. But just as important,
the BottleSox flap keeps the bottle valve clean from road gunk, bacteria in creek or road water and other junk that is
thrown up by the rotation of your front tire.
Peope saw how well they worked then asked us to make Sox
to fit other needs such as small 12 oz. cans, long neck beer bottles, baby bottles, common 16.9 oz water bottles, larger water
bottles, Gatorade bottles, Nalgene bottles and
wine bottles. We have found many of these sizes also fit other things like Garmins,cell phones (great for keeping sweat
off them while you run and/or bike), inhalers,and just about anything else you can think of. My personal
favorite is folding the top down on a Reg/Short TubeSox and putting an ice tea glass in it. It makes the cold glass
easier to hold, doesn't leave condensation on tables and keeps the tea colder for a longer time. I keep a
few BottleSox in the fridge with a cold bottle of water in it so I can just grab it and go. In this Texas
heat you have to keep hydrating. If you hydrate,
you need BottleSox or TubeSox. Other uses are hiking, backpacking,
golfing, working out, driving, working and many other uses.
Plus, BottleSox keeps the sand out of your beer at the beach.
We have also now made a holder for our Sox, called SoxCaddy.
They come in 5 sizes and will hold everything from a 12 oz can to
a 1.5 liter of wine or soda. They have a shoulder strap to carry the heavier containers. You can shorten the strap
to have a wrist strap/lanyard for the smaller containers. We are adding them to our new website soon. We have also added a new pink for the ladies. Our soft pink was not what they wanted,
so we now have a vibrant pink called Power Pink. It was a big hit at the Hotter'N Hell
Hundred Expo. Coming to our website soon.
is also great for baby bottles. We made them using a thicker 5mm neoprene for cushioning if you are using
a glass baby bottle. Even if the bottle has an extra hard fall and breaks, the broken glass will be contained. Five sizes
fit all standard baby bottles. They come in Soft Pink and True Blue. And if they get dirty, just toss into your
As some know, we have spent more time
in inventing and perfecting than marketing. In fact, I have told everyone that we are going stealth until we have everything
perfected. Our products are now perfect. Skinz Protective Gear in Minnesota has made the Sox better than I thought
could be done. We are now putting the last touches on getting the right printing processes for personalization of our
Sox. That should be done by August 2013. We are are also hiring someone to create a new website
that has all our new products as well as personalization. We are scheduled to have this done by November 2013.
