Days off...

Used to be about sleeping in.  But with my university's random and abundant mandatory morning activities, it seems to be harder and harder to get back to sleep.

Maybe I should consider getting some blackout blinds, or hanging a blanket or something - those plastic venetian blinds aren't really doing much to keep the room dark...

As an aside, though - I'm big into flashlights (weird, I know), but there's an entire WORLD of information on high-end flashlights.  SureFire is where you're likely to start, and you might already recognize them or some of their lights - but check out Malkoff for dropins (as well as their own line of lights) that blow the stock SureFire's away in Out-the-front (OTF) lumens and runtime!

Get started with a SureFire G2, and you'll realize why that $4 energizer light you got from a cereal box isn't worth the plastic it's made of...


Of course, any flashlight is only as good as the one you're carrying - so figure out a way to have one on you.  Purses for the ladies, cargo pockets for the men - smaller lights can be hung from your keychains.  Check out 4Sevens or Quark for lights of that...caliber?

  2. Yo,... I have seen some ultra strong flashlights, but they were pretty expensive.. they could light like 9000 LI orso?

  3. Most of the SureFire stuff is running between $40-200USD - Quark and Fenix are two cheaper brands, made in China (With respectable runtimes and outputs) available for about $40-80USD.

    HDS Clickies are spectacular, but again, expensive. >$100-200USD.

    Have a look around. Fenix is a GREAT brand for the money!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Blackout blinds might be good. Or what about a sleeping mask thingy?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I work the nightshift and I had blackout fabric sewn to the back of each of my curtains in my room. Add blinds to that and the room is pitchblack. If you're on a budget, use a cut up black trashbag taped to the window....its like cheap window tint
