    Red Light Primary Headlamp - Waterproof, Metal, No Memory?

    I think the Sofirn D2LR is closest to what you want, and if you switch the emitters, ticks all the boxes. Standard UI activates white led from off, or red with a hold from off. Less than $30.

    Flip flops

Tevas for pretty much anything, but the Birks when my feet start to hurt after a long day at work. Nothing like them. I...

    Annoying problem with a vintage NovaTac SPA Defense SPL-120

    I’ve had a few touchy lights that corroded at critical switch contact points just sitting around. I had to disassemble, clean, in one instance actually scrape to remove the corrosion on Bare aluminum. After that, I used deoxit. Then, I lubed all of the threads and orings; no problem since. Worst...

    Annoying problem with a vintage NovaTac SPA Defense SPL-120

    Overtaking vs passing

    Great thread. I drive roughly 20k miles/year and I’m still amazed at some of the driving habits I see on a daily basis, especially regarding lane usage and passing. I’ve always said that there are more people “riding” in their cars than there are actually driving them. From all of the...
