For many years we would go to the local department store each summer and buy a simple flashlight, extra C or D batteries and a spare bulb to last us through summer camping trips, never really thrilled with what we got. Now we have awesome flashlights like the OxyLED MD50 flashlight that more than meet our needs-read on for more!

When preparing for a camping trip or backpacking adventure one thing that is key to consider is weight. Keeping the load light will extend the distance your feet (and back) will be able to endure each day. The HybridLight expandable lantern and flashlight from Cellular Outfitter is an item that you need on your next adventure.
One truth in my world is that I am always up for a new pocket knife or flashlight. Maybe because I spend so much times in the woods, or maybe it is just a man thing. When I had the chance to review the Blackfire Clamplight Backpack, I jumped at the chance, and the $34.99 light spent hunting season with… Read More ›
Reaching its Kickstarter goal in 16 hours, ZEROHOUR‘s RELIC XR Tactical LED Flashlight was quite literally, an overnight success. This kickass-looking device is a USB rechargeable flashlight and waterproof battery backup in one. Not only is this flashlight waterproof, it’s constructed with aircraft aluminum. There’s still time to pledge at least $120 to secure your own at their Kickstarter campaign.
I seem to have been on a disaster-prep kick lately, and that’s a good thing considering that unforeseen events can happen at any time. It’s smart to plan ahead, be prepared, and keep gear that can power itself and other devices ready for when it’s needed. The latest tool in my arsenal is the Goal Zero Torch 250 Flashlight.
Being an outdoorsman can be taxing on the gear I use. Everything I carry is subject to being dropped and knocked around, as well as the elements. I usually go through several lights a year due to them breaking or getting wet. Rayovac may solve this issue with the Virtually Indestructible LED Spotlight. Can the $39.99 spotlight hold up?
Hopefully the use of emergency lighting is reserved for camping and outdoor activities, but sometimes inclement weather and other events leave us in the dark. Either way, having lighting options with multiple charging possibilities can help keep us safe and comfortable. The Secur Dynamo Spotlight Lantern is a $35 product that will bring light and help charge your devices.
Flashlights are one of those items you don’t give much thought to until you need one. Once you do, you’ll want it to work correctly, casting a bright light where you need it. Good build quality and comfortable to hold are also key for a great flashlight. If this fits your flashlight needs, you might need a Maxxeon WorkStar 340.
The television show Revolution made its return to Prime Time last night. When it first aired in the fall, the show about a world without power struck a bit too close to home; a few episodes into it, SuperStorm Sandy plunged much of the East Coast into darkness. I’m not sure if it was art imitating life, or life imitating… Read More ›
When Superstorm Sandy hit last fall we, like so many in our region, were left without power. For Elana and me that meant no heat, no light and no water. (Yes, we live in New Jersey and have well rather than communal water.) The outage also meant we had no way to recharge batteries. Thankfully I had anticipated this happening… Read More ›
I’ll admit that the first time Kev slipped his headlamp on to go do something outside in the dark, I smirked. Why not just carry a flashlight? Why go out of your way to look like a coal miner or a caver? I’m being facetious, of course. I totally understood why he would want to be able to do things… Read More ›
A must have for all hunters, especially in the south is a ThermaCELL Mosquito repellent appliance. In fact, I actually cannot even hunt without one during the spring turkey season or the early bow only deer season here in Texas. Our mosquitos can practically carry a man during those months. Read my review on the ThermaCELL appliance here I wrote… Read More ›
I loved Icon’s Rogue 2 Flashlight. It was the most durable flashlight I have ever had the opportunity to use. It was bright and well designed and will last many years. Paul Kim, the designer of the Icon line of flashlights is a genius at designing flashlights that are not only very good-looking, but very functional. That’s why I jumped… Read More ›
The other day I needed to make some adjustments behind my television. I needed both hands but I also need a light illuminating the right spot where the cable connections we. So I grabbed a small flashlight, stuck it between my teeth, and did what I needed to do. It dropped on the ground three times and… well you know… Read More ›
If you have significant other and you sleep in the same bed chances are it’s happened to you at least once. It’s nearing bedtime but one of you just isn’t ready to go to sleep yet. Do you like to read in bed? A lot of us do, it’s probably where I do most of my reading. But does your… Read More ›
Do you have more money than sense? If you do, then the new mPower Emergency Illuminator will likely be your flashlight of choice. What does $289 get you — other than an LED flashlight that vaguely resembles the SS Enterprise? The mPower Emergency Illuminator™ is a personal illumination tool that offers Power On Command™. In addition to primary standard lithium… Read More ›
Not all flashlights are created equal. Back in 1979, Anthony Maglica created Maglite. Maglite is the bar where all flashlights are measured, for me. Almost nothing could top it back then. Well, Paul Kim, the designer of the Icon Rogue series of flashlights may be the new Anthony Maglica. The Icon Rogue 2 is the best flashlight I have come… Read More ›
It never fails. The power goes out in the middle of the night and your flash light is out of batteries. Now that we are getting to the heart of the hurricane season, before the next storm hits maybe you should get your family a Life+Gear 6IN1DC. The 6IN1DC is touted as a quad power device. The device can run… Read More ›
We have all seen the cyalume glow sticks that you snap and then shake to get a chemiluminescent glow. Kids love them, but there is one downside: You can’t turn them off. Imagine having a glowstick that you can not only turn off, but at the press of a button you could make that glow stick into a regular flashlight. … Read More ›
Just in case you thought fast changing technology only exists in cell phones and Mp3 players I bring you this Gear Diary entry. This one hits especially close to home for me because, well you know, I’m a firefighter.
