While not really tactical gear it is equipment. Every emergency kit should have some form of alternative light source and generally it has been a flashlight. The LuminAID Solar Light (http://www.luminaid.com/shop/) is one of these items. These make for nice bugout kit items. And for $19.95 ( $17.95 if you order 3+ or $15.95 if you order 10+ ) Pictures linked from their website.


The LuminAID Solar Light is a solar-powered, inflatable light that packs flat and inflates to create a lightweight, waterproof lantern. Safe, Sustainable and ultra-portable, the LuminAID provides up to 15 hours of LED light and can be easily recharged in the sun, ideal for recreational use outdoors or in the home as an extra light source. Tuck it away in your first-aid kit or hook it on your backpack for your next adventure or trip!

That is extremely cool. I am a huge fan of emergency lights and things needed in a pinch.

That's a clever doohicky. Might use one on a 3-day pack I've been putting together.

I bought a dozen of the "Luci'" for my sibs for emergencies. Same idea in a different shape - $14.95.
Has hi-lo-blink settings. Great to shower when power out or car trouble on a dark road.

Those are pretty cool as well. I had ran into the LuminAID a couple months ago, never seen the Luci till now.
