Pelican 1910 106 Lumen Flashlight [Black]

51m7t6DcLThe Pelican 1910 is a small AAA flashlight that's about 2cm longer than the the Streamlight Microstream. Pelican, best known for their rugged gear cases, also makes some really nice flashlights. While none of the Pelican flashlights are tactical per se, I really like that the Pelican 1910 puts out over 40% more light than the Streamlight Microstream. In fact, the brightness of the 1910 is very comparable to the Microstream running a 10440 cell, but rather than the 20 minute runtime, you have two hours of runtime.

As expected with Pelican, the 1910 is IPX7 waterproof and has an anondized aircraft aluminum housing. While the light fits into your pocket pretty well, those who like using the fifth pocket to carry everyday carry items will find that it doesn't fit as well as the Streamlight.

  • Three Light Modes: High - 106 lumens | Low - 21 Lumens | Momentary - 106 Lumens
  • Runtimes: High - 2 hours | Low - 4 hours
  • Battery: 1x AAA 1.5V Alkaline, Lithium or Rechargeable battery (Do NOT use 10440 cells)
  • Tail cap clicky switch
  • Pocket clip

NiteCore Tube - 45 Lumen T Series Keychain Light

nitecore tubeThe NiteCore Tube Keychain LED Flashlight offers many advantages over other flashlights when it comes to personal carry or EDC that prompted me to get one two months ago. Besides the obvious small size that will fit in just about any pocket or pouch, the Nitecore Tube offers 45 lumens of brilliant light that lights up a pretty good size 20 foot area. I found that I was pulling it out more than I was the Streamlight Micro just because it was more convenient and had a wider spill. I love having the ability to just plug it into my laptop in order to recharge it, which also makes it useful when I'm on the go because I can recharge it with my portable phone charger or even the solar charger.

While the NiteCore Tube may not be your primary light, it is perfect for a secondary or general use flashlight. There's two modes that give you lighting options as well: Low 1 lumen mode that can run for up to 48 hours on a single charge, and 45 lumens high mode that gives you an hour burn time. The light also offers momentary on and variable light intensity so you can run at a lower light level to preserve runtumes if needed.

  • 2.2" X 0.83", 0.34oz
  • USB Rechargeable via microUSB charge port (2 hours charge time)
  • Waterproof (1.5 meters) polycarbonate housing
  • 77lb strength reinforced stainless steel carry ring
  • Beam Distance: 24 Meters

  • Repurpose Beef Jerky Bags For Water Storage

    beef jerky bag water storageBeef Jerky is one of my favorite snacks. If it weren't so darn expensive, I'd be eating a lot more. Funny thing is that those bags that the Jerky comes it are completely waterproof! Most of the beef jerky bags also have a Ziploc enclosure to reseal the bag if you don't eat all the jerky (like that EVER happens). The seals on the side are really good as well, making the beef jerky bag the perfect bag when you have nothing else, and want or need to carry water.

  • Cyalume ChemLights - Is Carrying Glow Sticks Worth It?

    military cyalume chemlightsCyalume Chemlights, more popularly known as Glow Sticks, can be a help in the dark, chasing away your kid's nightmares, and lighting up jack-o-lanterns in a safe, stable way, but chemlights can also be found in military load outs, bug out bags, prepper gear and of course, everyday carry pouches. The question is whether it's worth it to carry Cyalume Glow Sticks as a light source, or not?

  • Everyday Carry Body Cams: Should You Have One In Your EDC?

    XANES T69 Infrared Night Vision Body CamThere's the saying, "No pictures, no proof" which simply means that if you don't have photos or video, whatever you said happened, didn't happen because you can't prove it. That's why we're looking at cheap body cameras to add to your everyday carry. In a world where fights and shootings can break out at any time, having a recording device such as a pen cam or body cam that's ready at a moment's notice is almost an essential for the EDC.

    edc pocket notebook field book elan publishing companyField Notes pocket notebooks are pretty expensive when you go through two a month. I'm always on the hunt for something more cost effective, and recently I came across the Elan Publishing Company Field Book (stk# elan-fn-001b).

  • Nebo Lil Larry 6373 Work Light 250 Lumens White/Red LED

    thumb NEBO LiL Larry Work LightOK, so I was saving the second Nebo work light for today's review. Yesterday, I reviewed the Nebo LEO 220 Lumens flashlight and this little flashlight is of similar design. Although it doesn't have the spotlight head that the LEO has, the Lil Larry (Stock# 6373) has it's own set of really cool features.

    As the title says, it's a 250 lumen work light, but has a low mode putting out about 100 lumens, and a red LED emergency flasher mode that blinks twice a second. The flashlight costs around $18 on Amazon, and is the perfect work light for your home, car or everyday carry bag.

  • Nebo LEO 220 Lumen Pocket Work Light

    thumb nebo leo black grayNormally I don't get into "normal" flashlights, but today, the LEO worklight by Nebo caught my eye. It was a bit different than most other cheap LED worklights you might find in Walmart or online, and I felt convinced that I had to get it.

    The NEBO LEO is a very bright 220 lumen work lamp that has a swivel-out rotating head to put the light where you need it, but it also has a 80 lumen flashlight at the top as well for spot use. With a price of less than $20 it's a perfect AAA worklight that won't break the bank!

  • US Army Compass Pouch LC-1 Coat & Belt Everyday Carry

    thumb US Army Compass Pouch EDC 10A couple days ago I stopped in Joe's Army Navy over in Royal Oak, MI. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but as always, I walked out with some items. One of the items was a Compass Pouch (LC-1). I had a few of these a while ago, and I really liked them to keep small items in. With this one, I decided that I'd use it as a very small Pocket Everyday Carry that holds a few OTC Meds and First Aid. Due to it's small 4"x4"x1.5" capacity, it's perfect, and these compass pouches like mine, usually come with an Alice Clip that was the Molle System's predecessor. I like this little clip because it's easy to clip the pouch to my belt if needed. Let's take a look inside to see what I've put in it.
