“A simple life is good with me. I don’t need a whole lot. For me, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, barefoot on a beach and I’m happy.” – Yanni

I grew up on Whidbey Island in Washington State. I hated the town I grew up in, but I loved the island itself.  The beaches there are gorgeous.  Even though the water was only warm enough to swim in for about one month a year. I took my dogs to the beach several times a week, even in the winter.

Alas there was one constant annoyance: sand. When I’d bring my cocker spaniels back to the house I’d have to brush them in the backyard and yet there was always a little sand in the carpet. I was vacuuming at least three times a week.

CGear Sand-Free Products

Now that I’m in New York, I still make trips the beach but finally I’ve found something that will keep me from tracking half the Hamptons back home.  CGear makes totes, blankets even shoes all specifically engineered to be sand free!  Check out their website here.

How is that possible? CGear was established in 2003 and holds a patent in 100 countries for its SAND FREE mats.

Continual research and development by the CGear Sand-Free team has seen the production of products for use by the military and the outdoor/recreational markets. These two divisions of CGear Sand-Free are internationally recognized innovators in these specialized fields and markets. The military products CGear Sand-Free has developed focus on providing solutions to sand and dust abatement for helicopters when landing and taking off. The CGear Sand-Free patented Tactical Helimat is a light weight transportable Helipad that solves the problem of sand and dust abatement, known as Brown out. If they can keep helicopter from kicking up sand, keeping beachgoers sand free will be a snap!
