ThruNite TH20 Headlamp review

Since I began participating in (and actually completing) GORUCK Challenges back in 2014, I’ve thought a lot more about headlamps than I ever thought I’d think about headlamps. I have one that I have worn for thirteen GORUCK events and for tasks around the house, and it has performed fairly well for me, but it’s starting to …

Wind chimes that can play the notes of your favorite tune

We have several wind chimes hanging from our front porch including the one shown in the image above. I love the relaxing sound of a wind chime as the breeze blows against it. But my wind chimes don’t play a recognizable tune. They make more of a tinkling, pinging, dinging, and donging type of sound. …

Wicked Lasers FlashTorch Mini flashlight review

Back in 2012 I reviewed Wicked Lasers’ first generation Torch and in 2014 their second generation more polished FlashTorch. Both touted at the time as “the most powerful handheld flashlight in the World” and at a whopping 4100 lumens, they were wickedly bright, extremely hot, but rather large.  The designers at Wicked Lasers have recently introduced a …

Mujjo Double Layered Touchscreen Gloves review

It’s December, so that means that it’s starting to get cold here in Southern Indiana. When the temperature dips to the low 40’s and 30’s (F), it means that it’s time for me to pull out my gloves. But my gloves are not ordinary gloves. They are Mujjo Double Layered Touchscreen Gloves, which  have super …
