Part of the thrill of many extreme sports and excursions is the very real possibility of injury. But that thrill quickly turns to the feeling of defeat when you find yourself limping back to your car, on your way to the hospital for stitches. In some cases, however, leaving early may no longer be necessary. Zipstitch is the most advanced and non-invasive wound closure device available and it’s starting to make traditional stitches seem downright medieval. Unlike butterfly bandages and strips, Zipstitch has a zip-tie mechanism that allows you to customize tension across the cut and acts as a scaffold and cage to protect the wound. Zipstitch is faster than stitches with less scarring and pain, and Gear Patrol readers can get 10% off your order from ZipStitch with the code Gear10.
