tic. is a Swedish company that has solved one of the more vexing backpacker issues: sewing on a shirt button after it has detached.
Simply push tic through the button, one tic for 2 holed buttons or two tic for 4, pinch twist and done! Imagine the usefulness of such a simple solution to an inevitable complication. 10 minutes before that big board meeting, your cube mate points out your flapping shirt button. Two weeks into a 3-month backpacking adventure, your only button-down develops an unwanted vent. Then, with the flick of a wrist, it’s like it never happened and you’re back on the trail.
