Cool Thing of the Month


The Earlite
Clever thing, the Earlite. As the name implies, it hooks over your ear and is a light. Very compact and lightweight, it puts out a bright white light you can read by. Useful for map-reading, fixing stuff, and other activities where you don't want to give up use of a perfectly good hand just to hold a flashlight. It lights where you look. Powered by two lithium coin cells, the Earlite will hold a charge for years, then run for 24 hours straight. The loop is adjustable to fit either ear. Better yet, buy two and wear them both at the same time. Imagine how cool you'll look! (Not.) Just $12 per ear at EssentialGear.com.
