Now that DST is over (why do we still have crappy non-DST time again?) and its dark at 5:00, I probably should get a couple lights for night kayaking. I’ve had a few different ‘waterproof lights’ over the years, but none have held up very well.
I need 2 types of lights:
1: a white running light. Either something that mounts to the deck or something that clips to your PFD.
2: an emergency SOS LED flare - looking for something that is impossible to break and deemed extremely reliable. This is what will save me if I’m lost at sea in the dark, so want it to work every time.
Prefer to spend less than $50 on either, but willing to pay if there is a clearly superior product, particularly for the emergency light. Can anyone recommend a waterproof light that has held up to use and abuse well?
