Nite Ize announced that its patented TRU Zip waterproof zipper technology received special recognition from TIME’s Best Inventions of 2020*.

Introduced in January 2019, TRU Zip is the foundation for the Nite Ize RunOff waterproof travel bag collection. The TRU Zip is a silent, sliding, toothless, dustproof, and waterproof zipper system.

“We’re honored to receive a special mention from TIME as part of the Best Inventions of 2020,” said Rick Case, CEO and founder of Nite Ize. “The toothless and silent TRU Zip redefines what a zipper is capable of and is an incredible advancement from the original design first introduced in 1893. As an ingredient brand, we are partnering with other brands to empower them to create things they could never make before with TRU Zip technology making the impossible, possible.”

Nite Ize developed the RunOff Waterproof Bags collection featuring TRU Zip technology. Featuring TPU construction and RF-welded seams, the collection ranges in size from wallets to travel pouches and larger packing cubes that can be used as airtight compression sacks for travel to everyday use.
