i asked this question in another thread on the incanscent side, but it was sort of buried and not the original question of the thread, so i thought i would ask again...

i think a wrist light could be very cool, a nice combination between headlamp and flashlight...so far i've heard of two products that could fit this bill...


Flashware Strap

seems interesting although a bit larger than i would like...room for tools could come in handy...i like how it holds the light off of your arm a little...

Petzl Zipka

the zipka will, supposedly, strap around your wrist or arm or torso just fine...i think, for a wristlight, you would want something brighter that projects a little farther, but perhaps this would work well for reading driections or a map or something...

i've been playing with my 2AA mag head strap and i think that would work pretty well with another loop sewn on to it (one perpendicular to the head band part)...then it could serve double duty as a headlamp...

ideally i would like to see a wrist light that you could turn on and off with just the one hand it's attached to, perhaps like a weapon mountable surefire with the trigger put around your index finger so you can trigger it with your thumb or something...

anyhow, i was wondering if anyone else knew of anything liek these or had any ideas...i'll probably go the way of the 2AA mag-light headband thing (because it's cheap as dirt =)) for now, just to see if i use it in this capacity...
