The brand is Photon. Fauxton is what people call the cheapo, knock-off Photon lights.
"Faux" get it? :lol:

Re: Getting a young college student prepped

When do we get to talk about indie music and motorcycles? I assume it will be bicycles rather than motorcycles. I had a roomate who was into indie music, tattoos, bicycles, cats, veganism/vegetarianism and she dressed up like a zombie for halloween one time. I'm aware of these types of folks. They ...

Re: To Neck Knife or Not To Neck Knife.

I had a CRKT Carson F4 neck knife that i really liked. I spent a day at the park and when i came home and took it off, i noticed the knife part was gone and that i had just been wearing a sheath. It fell out somewhere in the park and i couldn't find it. I believe CRKT downgraded the steel on that mo...

Re: alarms/trip wires??

Well since no one liked the improvised ideas. What about one of these ? Its a magnetic door alarm. Comes in two pieces, a sensor/siren and a magnet. If the magnet is separated from the sensor it produces a loud chiming. I'm sure with a little ingenuity you could set this up for any situation. I act...

I'm interested in hearing some thoughts on the type of situations one might face where trip wires/flares/firecrackers/blank rounds would be of use in an urban setting as alarms. Are we talking post apocolypse and zombies? because I imagine that some of these items (depending on how they are stored o...

I will echo Shaper and say more shelter options are needed. A tarp and ground pad are very basic but tarp shelters can be set up in many different ways with practice.

Add water and a way to purify water such as tablets, a filter and a vessel to boil water in. Switch out the big hammer, wrench and screwdriver, they're taking up space and weight. You might be better off just keeping the multitool and adding a slim pry bar. What type of multitool is it? You might ne...

I think adding a blade to the front horizontally would make it a very practical small game hunting tool. Something similar to an Ulu knife, perhaps.
