Re: Free Olight review thread-I3E

Great 'bonus' light. As others said..practically the size of the AAA it uses.

Got it and several other freebies when I ordered my weapon light on a black Friday sale.

Re: The Expanse; Syfy Series

A fantastic show. Excellent production values, kick ass cast, intriguing science concepts that are not marred by too much 'junk science'.

A cure for those missing Firefly....

Re: Headlight recommendations

After much painstaking reviews and feedback I settled on the Zebralight H600Fc. Great light. At first I thought the described interface would be a bit much but I like it.
I'll update when I get some usage on it.

Sleeping arrangement very important.
Especially a pillow that works for me. When we have a planned stay at a hotel, I usually take several of my bamboo fiber pillow if I want to get a decent sleep.

Re: Headlight recommendations

Thanks again. Yes I like the several Fenix flashlights I have, the only issue is the Fenix headlamp HLR60 doesn't easily double as a hand flashlight.

Friend and I are going to hit tent and trails outdoor store in Manhattan next week to try some hands on with some zebras and armytek.

Enjoying return of the show with Season 3.
Kooky shit with kooky vehicles equals kooky fun.
One criticism, I wish they cut out the whole donkey thing in the one episode..
Not a huge race car fan but I absolutely need me one of those Model X's, in the configuration that Clarkson tested..
