From the Amazon to Zambezi, Nite Ize Travels with Survivalist Forrest Galante

November 10, 2015

Boulder, Colo., November 10, 2015 – With an innate passion for the outdoors, Forrest Galante is one of the world’s greatest adventurers, a renowned survivalist, and a dedicated Nite Ize® enthusiast. Galante has now officially partnered with Nite Ize, a manufacturer of innovative products that enhance user lifestyles, in an effort to help promote the brand and test products in the most extreme environments across the globe.

Galante is most recognized for his appearance on the Discovery Channel show “Naked and Afraid” however, survival was never simply a “hobby” for him. Raised in Harare, Zimbabwe survival tactics were a necessity of everyday life.

“I have been bitten by a venomous snake, been in a plane crash, was mauled by a lion, charged by a hippo, stung by a man of war jelly fish, bitten by a shark, in a car wreck, tumbled off a waterfall and stabbed by a stingray,” Galante said. “It’s a statistical anomaly that I’ve survived!”

Throughout his adventures and close-call encounters, Galante relies on Nite Ize products. These products are intended to simplify and enhance any lifestyle – even the most extreme. For Galante, the Nite Ize Gear Tie® Reusable Rubber Twist Ties and INOVA® LED Flashlights in particular make the challenges of the Amazon or Andes more manageable.

“From suspending my hammock in a tree to strapping alligator’s jaws shut, I use Nite Ize Gear Ties for everything,” he says. “Second to that would be any of the INOVA LED products. I work a lot at night and need good hands-free, reliable, water-resistant, high-powered light and that’s what I get with the INOVA products from Nite Ize.”
