    Between glow powder and glow paint, you can make pretty much anything you want glow. Powder/epoxy mix behind/around the emitter makes the whole reflector assembly glow, or you can put a ring of it around your switch for a full glow tail, paint your clip for a glow clip, mix n' match colors, etc

    Glow Inc. is what most flashlight folk use for base glow materials (http://glowinc.com/)

    And don't forget the added possibilities with tritium vials and fobs..

    There are GITD Fishing Lines!
    They are called "LOOM" and are produced by a company named "WFT".
    I bought a few hundred meters a while ago and am using these as Tent-Lines so i wont fall over them at night.
    I bought the 51kg version with 0,32mm diameter. Quite usable as 30m EDC line in my wallet too.

    There are sheets of glow paper, as well as glow rope.

    I'm a big fan of Siggy's glo-rings.

    I like the GITD battery holders by Tools Aviation. They use a very good quality GITD material, unlike the crappy glow form the orings and rope previously mentioned. The home made stuff is often the best though.

    Unless you are allergic to having stuff mailed to you I suggest you study Glow Inc. (Link: http://glowinc.com/ ) If you buy say, 4 ounces it fits an ordinary envelope. Essentially it is the same as sending a letter except there's a customs declaration form on it. I just got 4 ounces from them, no worries and extremely quick.

    Most countries have a limit before you start to pay import tax, VAT and such on the cool things you can order from international dealers. Make sure the cost of your order is below whatever that limit is.
