Groove Life Realtree Silicone Rings Designed for Active Outdoorsmen and Women

Groove Life has partnered with Realtree to bring adventurous men and women silicone rings designed for the outdoor lifestyle. Available in a variety of Realtree camo patterns, the silicone rings are comfortable, safe, breathable and durable – everything the outdoors enthusiast needs in a ring.
Metal rings are not ideal for those who enjoy outdoors activities. They can be cumbersome, cause the finger to sweat and offer no give if the ring gets hung on something, which can be quite dangerous. Metal rings can also get bent or damaged during outdoor activities. That’s why Peter Goodwin, founder of Groove Life, decided to give silicone rings a try, but he was underwhelmed with what he found.
"I owned a hunting/fishing lodge in Alaska and spent a lot of time guiding,” Goodwin said. “I was excited when silicone rings hit the market around 2013 because I wanted to be able to wear a wedding band while hunting and guiding, but the silicone rings I tried didn’t breathe. When I was hunting, my fingers would sweat and the rings would chafe.”
Recognizing that he was not likely the only outdoorsman with that issue, Goodwin decided to design a ring that offered all-day comfort and breathability. He worked nights for eight months perfecting his design, which featured patented breathable grooves and air-ports to allow air in and moisture out. He kickstarted Groove Ring in December 2015 and before long, everyone wanted one of Goodwin’s rings. The demand became so high that Goodwin sold his lodge and focused all his energy into his business.
“Rings, especially wedding bands, are unique in that they are sentimental, but they’re not always practical for outdoorsmen, hunters and anglers. Groove Life Realtree camo silicone rings are different. They never have to be removed.”
Outdoors enthusiasts can wear them hunting, fishing, hiking, biking…whatever.
“You can shower, eat and sleep with a Groove Life band on,” Goodwin said. “They’re an identifier like a t-shirt. They tell the world you are a hunter and you’re taken. And the different camo patterns tell people what type of hunter you are, which is fun as well.”
Goodwin says Realtree camo is a natural fit for the rings because it is synonymous with the outdoor lifestyle Groove Life identifies with.
"I grew up hunting and fishing and Realtree has been in my life since I was a child. I also grew up watching “Realtree Monster Bucks.” Bill Jordan is an icon to me.”
The Realtree camo rings are made of the high-quality, injection-molded, elastomer blend used in hospitals. The rounded interior lessens skin contact for an all-day comfortable fit. The custom-designed rings are made to last and stand up to the wear and tear of the outdoors lifestyle. And best of all, they come with a lifetime warranty.
If your Groove Ring ever rips, tears or stretches, Groove Life will replace it. You’re also covered if you simply don’t like the color or lose it.
Groove Life is now located in an old renovated school building near Nashville, Tennessee, and in addition to rings, offers silicone watch bands and belts.
