I wanted to make a sort of index thread for when folks come across extraordinary deals on stuff.

I'm not so interested in debating whether this sucks or that rocks, just a little reference thread when you come across interesting (SPECIFIC) items.

I'd like it if folks would post a link directly to the specific item they are referencing, instead of general sites.

So, in that vein I offer the following:

Box Meals - 95 cents

As a medic, I can hardly pass this one up either:

Coban - The duct tape of EMS

For UKers, the Poundland shops have LED head torches at the moment, suprisingly good for only a quid. They are the ones you can angle.

This Ray-O-Vac Extreme series of LED flashlights is quite good for the price.

They are available at your local *Marts, or from Amazon.

Extreme Light

I bought this one two weeks ago and the quality/light output are excellent.

This particular model (3 Watt/80 Lumen) Easily illuminated a large area out to 50 meters and the beam was able to light up objects up to 100 Meters away.

The only thing I don't like is the lanyard ring. I will be replacing it with a simple rubber o-ring.

You can't beat the price either.

I also recommend Panasonic Oxyride batteries. You won't find them on sale so you are likely to pay $1 for each AA but during extensive testing they have proven themselves to last five times longer than premium (Duracell MAX) batteries.

Oxyride is a new technology that provides higher output and longer life than Alkaline.

Just a suggestion but I think a headlamp is a great addition to any kit. I have for each person in the family and the kids really like them. The wife likes it because of the hands free aspect
