- Concept & Design - Austin, Texas
- Manufactured in Arizona, USA
Welcome to NicheLab. We are the inventors
of unique, common sense products that actually work.
first two products are 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.
People 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 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 two new colors. A new pink for the ladies. Our soft pink was
not what they wanted, so we now have a vibrant pink called Power Pink. We have also added
Camo in the Woodland series. Both were a big hit at the Hotter'N Hell Hundred Expo. Coming to our website soon.
BottleSox is also great for baby bottles. 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 washing machine.
As some know, we have spent more time inventing and perfecting than marketing. In fact,
I have told everyone that we are going stealth until we have everything perfected. Our last neoprene manufacturer was
good, but not perfect. We are testing our new neoprene in August of 2019. Skinz Protective Gear in Arizona has
made the Sox better than I thought could be done. We have been testing heat transfer processes of vinyl for names, bling
using crystals and color for logos. 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 October 2019.
