Gear Test - Universal Fingerlight

Here's a FingerLight that I got for $1.89 at Walmart in the checkout line. It's just an LED that has a small velcro strap to hold it to the finger (or backpack strap, whatever). It weighs 3/8 oz (10 g) and takes little watch batteries.

This one is red with a blue LED...I also have a blue one with green LED.

It's pretty light and plastic...I guess it would take a bit of care in the field. I used to have more heavy duty ones (one white light, a red light, and one IR light) for when I flew...they weighed a bit more but were much sturdier. I don't remember the manufacturer, though.
