Best tiny flashlight ever

My friend Chris has supplied me with numerous outdoor gear leads over the years. His car is a rolling survivalist’s storage locker. Some of his recommendations have worked out ( Cabella’s winter jacket) and some have not ( big Agnes Air Core mattress).
The tiny Nanolight Streamlight is a best buy, a most useful tool, and has been with me 24/7 since December 2011. Mine is on a neck cord that I wear all the time, even in the shower. It’s definitely waterproof. The power comes from 4 tiny hearing aid batteries that cost more than the light itself if you buy them from a local discount drug store. Online battery supply houses sold me 16 of them for about $15. The light is surprisingly bright- definitely enough lumens to read a paperback in the dark.
You can buy them for under $10, online. I bought a half- dozen of them to give away as Christmas presents. I just gifted one to my hiking pal Guthook, and if you haven ‘t already done so, read his excellent backpacking blog – Guthook Hikes!

Sixty years old, retired, live in the Maine woods, thru-hiked the Appalachain Trail in 2007 and the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010. I like reading, and being outdoors as much as possible. My upcoming exercise program involves more walking. For the upper body and core workout, I'll be shoveling snow.

    Pretty much the coolest flashlight I’ve ever seen! I can’t stop playing with it :)
