When I designed my Doug Ritter Ultimate Aviator Survival Pak I needed a compact, very lightweight multipurpose LED flashlight/headlamp. After much searching, the light I settled on was the eQ Hands-Free Multi-Light. Of course, I did want a couple changes. I wanted to use the same "twice-as-bright" LED as the Doug Ritter MkII Special Edition Photon Freedom Micro-light and I really didn't like either of the standard case colors, black or dark blue. Yellow, easy to find if dropped, would be nice...The good news was they could give me what I wanted. The bad news; we would have to order a lot of them. Voilą! Another Doug Ritter Special Edition is born: the Doug Ritter Special Edition eQ Hands-Free Multi-Light

For full details about this new light, click here, but if you just want to order, click here to go to the order page on Aeromedix.com

[color:"red"] A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Doug Ritter Special Edition eQ Hands-Free Multi-Light goes to support the non-profit Equipped To Survive Foundation.[/color]

It is strange how things work out. I've just been looking at adding a headlamp to my gear...and here is an ideal one! And the price?? Unbelievable! I was scared to look at the price, then amazed when I saw how low it was! Another DR to add to my collection!

Hey Doug, my wife and I are expecting in the next few months...any chance there's an ETS baby stroller in the works? <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Great little light... I wonder, does Aeromedix ship to Canada without too much of a hassle? I'd like to order one.

Thanks.

Yes, they ship to Canada. Not sure what might be considered "too much hassle," considering the relatively low cost and size of the light. But, send them an email and they'll get back to you promptly.

LOL. Afraid you're on your own for that. For some reason the stroller manufacturers were aghast at a baby stroller design that incorporated "baby's first knife" and "baby's first multi-tool." <shrug> Just never know what's going to set some folks off. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Naaaaa. You can easily buy a "Baby Glock!" (Glock 26). So knives and multi-tools should not be much of a problem after that.

Sadly the cost of shipping to the U.K makes buying one impractical. Unless Aeromedix is going to let Outdoor Code have a few?

favourlight is a brandname that has a very similair looking headlight. The brandname however isn;t printed on the package and often not even mentioned. It has a blue transparant body and rubber head. The lens and head looks slightly different. But it has a 5mm Nichia also. Unfortunatly they don't give give doug any cash, but are more availible in europe. I'm pretty sure i have seen them on a british site...

This is mine. Just like doug i wanted it to be found more easily when dropped. I added two piece of reflective tape on mine.

Would this light be acceptable for search and rescue work or is it more for emergency or just around camp type use? Thanks.
