The global COVID-19 pandemic has caused sweeping changes to the way we live, but the people at HandiGuru are hoping that their new wearable way to conveniently carry hand sanitizer everywhere will keep the ancient human tradition of the handshake alive. Naturally, having hand sanitizer (literally) at your fingertips is a tremendous boon for hunters, hikers and backpackers. After all, chances are good you'll want that hand sanitizer after field-dressing a deer, cleaning fish and other often-messy outdoor tasks.
What's cool about the HandiGuru is that it sits comfortably on your wrist like a watch and can be filled with whatever liquid or gel you like—hand sanitizer, obviously, but also sunblock, bug repellent and more. It's not just about convenience, either. There's something about a wee bottle of a liquid that just begs to slide down under the heavy stuff in your bag, where it can get squashed and leak all over your gear.
Developed by Santa Barbara-based artist and innovator Benjamin Anderson, the HandiGuru features FDA-approved, recyclable silicone that won't abrade or irritate even sensitive skin. It's available in a variety of colors, including gray, black and blue, and holds up to 10ml of liquid/gel.
“In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, guarding against germs is more important than ever,” explains Anderson. “With HandiGuru, the protection my family needs is always right at our fingertips, giving us peace of mind whenever we leave home.”
Using the HandiGuru is easy. Just load any gel or lotion into HandiGuru’s self-sealing compartment with the help of the included applicator bottle. When it’s time to reapply, simply squeeze the silicone band to release the desired amount of product—no mess, no hassle, no worries. MSRP $11.95; Handiguru.com
