C-YA and C-SPOT Review
Now onto my review and giveaway. Awhile back Samantha from C-YA (website: www.perfecthindsight.com) contacted me to review her product line of reflective magnets.
Overall rating: A
The C-YA product and the C-Spot (for you doggie owners) are a great reflective product that won’t damage your clothes. I have a pack of Nathan reflection stickers which are great but not transferable to different clothing items. The C-YA is a small, about palm sized, magnet. Literally, you can snap them onto your shirt, hat, shorts, etc. I was worried about chafing or overall bunching of clothing where I placed the C-YA but I came away unscathed. I have to say that my wonderful Zoey wasn’t a huge fan of her C-Spot. She kept scratching at it like it was bothering her. Next time I try it with her I might attach it to the leash itself instead of her collar or put her in the harness and attach it to the harness.
The only suggestion I have for Samantha is to do a bit of updating to her website. While the product is great and modern, the website looks straight out of the 80’s, in a jazzercise-y way.
Samantha was so gracious in providing me with multiple C-YA’s that I have decided a lucky reader deserves one too. I’ve decided to giveaway my lightning bolt C-YA. It’s literally the shape of a lightning bolt---you can think about how fast you’re running as you sport it in the wee morning hours or post work. Since it’s getting lighter later and darker earlier it’s a perfect time to invest in some reflective gear.
