2022 SURVIVAL DAY 44 (Milwaukee 2105 Aluminum 100-Lumen Pen Light)

My experience is that when things go bad, the first thing that goes out is the power. I was on the 20th floor of a tower in Philadelphia when it lost power. Emergency lights came on, then immediately went out. I don’t think they were supposed to do that. This was in the 1990s, so we didn’t all have cell phones – and none of us had a flashlight. I still feel that uneasy fear when I think about how we went down nine or ten flights of emergency stairs before we finally got back to a level with lights. That was when I decided to always keep a Pen Light on me. If it has been more than a power outage, I would have really needed a light.

Fifteen years later I was in India when the power grid failed, and yes, i was in a high rise, but I’d learned my lesson and had my Pen Light on me. It’s amazing how just having a light in the dark helps keep the panic at bay.

Now I carry this 100-Lumen Pen Light with me as both a bit of EDC as well as a Hidden Survival Gear must have. I love that this fits easily in a pocket, and also has a rubberized coating so I can hold it in my mouth and use both hands to do whatever needs doing.

  • 100 Lumens of powerful light.
  • Rubberized bite zone.
