No matter who you talk to nowadays, it seems everyone has more to do and is always on-the-go. After working indoors and behind computer screens all week, people want their off time to be filled with fun and adventure. Research continues to show that time spent outside and enjoying the natural world even has numerous health benefits like de-stressing, fighting anxiety and lowering blood pressure. (1)

Today’s products need to be “life proof”. Built to survive workday challenges, time spent in the wild and even just general human clumsiness. Did you know that falling down while walking is the third leading cause of unintentional injuries for 18-35 year olds? (2) When it comes to promotional products, brands that specialize in functional and durable items can help companies get more brand impressions while reinforcing an advertiser’s own high-quality reputation.

Here are just a few of our favorite brands that offer “life proof” promos for busy (and clumsy) end users.
