    Thumbs up Going out camping? Consider this...

    A few things are worse but not as annoying as not being able to find something in the dark when you are outdoors: Flashlights, radios, matches..you get the idea.


    Consider this: Glow-On Self Adhesive phosphorescent film is the solution:


    Small strips of the material around small objects will give you assurance that you'll be able to find those small gadgets in the dar if you need them.
    'Well, all i need is my flashlight!"
    Really?
    What if you can't find your flashlight?






    lets make the story short, check this out:
    (The film is thick so tape might be needed to keep it strapped around very small objects)





    Go with the glow

    Having spent half of my adult life wandering around the dark with the threat of imprisonment if I lost a significant number of the things on my body, I prefer lanyards and carefully closed pockets to making myself into a Christmas tree.

    I still wake up while camping trying to put hot hands on cold steel before I'm really awake- just so I know where my weapon is.

    What if you can't find your flashlight?
    What if I can't find my wife?

    I think this is a great utilitarian idea, actually. Very creative!

    Some guys wouldn't consider that a problem that needs solving.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Looks like a good idea, depends how long the glow lasts. I could see putting this on my kids shirts when they want to go out at their grandparents after dark, it would be a lot easier than having them drag around glow sticks (nearly 7 acres of open land in the country so it's very dark).

    That's easy! You take some glow-On and a T-shirt, then and put a few small on the front and the back. You'll be able to see her moving around the room.


    That's it and I'm not kidding....My two year old can spot me and wont let me go when I check on him in the middle of the night, if he's awake of course!


    Go with the glow

    The first two options 7 & 8 are the super bright self adhesive..The third one, option 9 is pretty average in fact i'm taking that one out, you can find similar anywhere.
    Options 7 & 8 are custom made.

    The Glow on Bubble Gum Red and Orange Sherbet is a greenish glow. Hard to describe.
    The colored paint has a fluorescent color, the same used on fluorescent markers and such.
