Review: Brite-Strike Rugged Flashlights
I was sitting outside a cafe the other day when an older man sat down next to me and attempted to assemble a flashlight he'd bought at Walgreens. It was the chintziest piece of garbage I've seen in a long time, and I had to help him put together this thing, which after some tinkering finally emitted a feeble glow. He wanted something to keep in his car just in case. I wouldn't trust that junk device, however cheap it may have been. Flashlights are something you want to buy once and appreciate forever, which is why I wanted to check out EPLI's line of waterproofs — is it something I can recommend to friends, perhaps over the traditional Maglite, or just another toy? Good news: they're not toys.
