Tactical Torture Tests
A thousand lumens in the palm of your hand
There's a metric ton of lights out there that claim to be tactical lights. Some claim they're tactical because they are small. Some because they're super-bright. Others because they fit some design elements. But most of them don't stand up to excessive wear-and-tear. They fall apart easily or simply don't have what it takes. So we decided to test one light claiming to be a tactical flashlight.
Turns out, the Rechargable Tactical Flashlight from Ultimate Survival Essentials was harder to defeat than we thought. Even pushed to the breaking point, it still held up to a significant amount of repetitive, heavy abuse. Easily more than you'd expect to put it through during average use.
What's a Wolverine Bottle?!
Wolverine Bottles are patented poly bags that are the brainchild of Smart Bottle, Inc. out of North Carolina. They own the patents on their product, which is a two-part bottle with a poly outer layer and a nylon inner layer. The "bottle" is actually a BPA-free bladder-style container that can be rolled, smashed, beaten, tossed around, and otherwise tortured. Each bottle has the same mouth diameter and threaded opening. This allows for easy interchanging of parts and components, like valves, caps, connections, etc.
When filled, the bottles expand to a stable square base with handles on the top and bottom and grommets on both ends. The grommets serve to hold the bottles either upright or inverted for easy storage or drainage. The bottles themselves are clear, but can be printed, monogrammed, or made up of other materials, like Mylar, for specific purposes. But these are more than just another container.
