A Business Insider tweet caught my attention the other day: “A former Navy SEAL always carries this one thing” (see below). Of course, I watched the quick video, which revealed that one thing as being a high-powered pocket flashlight.
The former Navy SEAL says he takes it everywhere and it can be used at night and during the day to ward off any possible attackers (you shine it in the attacker’s eyes). The best part about it is that you can bring it on the plane, so even if you travel with carry-on only, the flashlight won’t be confiscated. It can be used for a number of other things besides temporarily blinding a bad person with the light, as well (it’s a flashlight after all). A small flashlight that’s a thousand lumens costs about $100 on Amazon. The only one I could find on Amazon that matched his description was the Fenix PD35 TAC 1000 Lumen CREE XP-L LED Tactical Flashlight with Two EdisonBright CR123A Lithium Batteries, which costs $72 and is highly rated.
