Got 5 of these on SAC for $4 each, couldn't beat that price...
I do Search and Rescue, and we spend a lot of time searching in the woods at night. I put one of these on the back of each of my packs, so that people behind me can see me... Works great, especially when in single file (like when carrying a litter). We normally use glow sticks, but these just seem to be much more efficient.

I just got this a few months ago -- I use for for Search and Rescue -- it is my 'rope rescue' 24hr pack (non-alpine). Basically, it holds everything I could possibly need for 24hrs on a search and rescue mission, including my harness, helmet, gloves, goggles and extra team gear. Also, it is easy to attach stuff to the outside (like axes and stuff).
The only thing I wish camelback should address is that it is hard to insert the bladder when your pack is full.

OK, I just ordered two of these.
The battery pack has a LONG power cord (5') attaching it to the headlamp, making it great to wear the battery pack on your belt, life jacket strap, wherever.
Having the battery pack on the headlamp straps themselves is a bit awkward as you have to coil up the cable to make it work.
It just happens that I like the feature of the extended cord, but if you don't, then you might try another lamp.

I love my Chili Lite's...
Just so you know, though, they are shorter than the average pair of shorts these days. they come up maybe 3" above my knee and i am an average 6' guy.

But please, I need a new pair, I was cleaning the bathrooms in our house, and I spilled some bleach on them. SAC, can you come to my rescue?!?!

Well, I got these to replace some Oakley Zeros that were stolen, to be used as running glasses.
For the most part, the glasses are good, and I will likely continue to use them for running, but...

The lenses seem big enough, but have a tendency to ride too high -- for example, the lenses cover my eyebrows, but do not extend down far enough to keep glare from the ground from coming up... (if I put the arms up 1/2 inch above my ears, the lens is in a good place, i gotta experiment with how to keep them there.
They bounce on my nose. Might sound weird, but they move way too much. Never had that problem with my Oakleys or my Smith Factors. I might just have to get used to that...
Otherwise, they seem to be a great pair of glasses...

For that, you need a "Spot Beacon" or something similar. http://www.findmespot.com/en/
The Spot beacon has a multitude of features from sending out SOS beacons to just giving your friends an update of your current location...
---note, there are also avalanche beacons, but they work completely different...

This knife replaced a Gerber River Shorty for me. I keep it on the outside of my PFD (P-vest), which is 99% of the time fine for whitewater kayaking and rescue scenarios.
It is somewhat bulky if trying to climb into a raft from the water (gets caught on line).
Like any knife kept on the outside of a PFD, I do recommend attaching it via a cord so it does not fall to the bottom of the river...

I got these to replace another pair of Smith sliders that I lost in the river... They are great. the only thing I found disconcerting is that right after I got them, it appeared that a thin film on the arms started to rub off at the end. Other than that, they are perfect! Oh, I am really tough on my gear, and have nicked my polarized lenses a few times already, so maybe they could be a bit tougher (or I could be more careful).

I got one (although I want to upgrade to the pricier CRKT ABC ER Knife). I have used it on my PFD on approx 500 river trips (whitewater kayaking). It has never fallen out, although I have friends who have lost theirs. If you are worried about that -- any knife can fall out of a sheath. Just attach a cord to it.
It is a great peace of mind -- you would never want to be handling a rope near the water if you didn't have a trustworthy knife at hand to get you out of a predicament.

I have more sunglasses than I know what to do with, but when I am feeling a bit of an attitude, I pull out my White Riddles. Took me a little while to like these (they are big and bold) but now they are my favorite glasses for just chillin'. I would not use them in any type of strenuous physical activity.
Oh, and I am a guy with a decent sized face - they are snug but not uncomfortable.
