My PSK includes 6" of plastic straw, folded into 3 parts and flattened. That takes very little room, or weight and provides a former for cordage or tape (which helps keep it folded and compressed). Another approach is to stuff the straw with matches or tinder or whatever, so the inner space is used. Six inches isn't enough to syphon fuel out of a car, but I hope it could help get at some inaccessible water.

A "matchstick flashlight"! Perfect for the person who is always saying they don't have room for a flashlight! <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Here is a review of the Micro Lenser LED:

The tiny fishing bobber LED has almost no "hotspot", it's almost all a gentle flood, but more than sufficient for most up close LED operations, like finding a keyhole, reading a map, or finding your way through your PSK/backpack at night. It doesn't have much throw, being a gentle flood, so for indoor movement a traditional LED would be better.

It's strange. The Coast in that review projects a square beam profile, while both of my Coasts project a regular round beam profile.

Interestingly enough, I also have a micro lenser from Eddie Bauer (another distributer?) and it does have a square beam profile. I didn't like that...

I've also noticed a difference in quality between the two. The twist endcap on the Eddie Bauer's is very "loose", while my coasts are nice and tight.

Maybe the one with the square beam is an earlier version?

No fishing bobber leds at my Wally world. They are all the mini glow stick chemical light style bobber illuminators. <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

that's the right section, there were glowsticks near mine as well. I guess not all the walmarts carry them <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

I went to the closest Wal-Mart and I found the tiny LED light. It's the Nite Brite replacement battery from Lindy. That's kewl.

I finally found them at Academy Sports .. they had both green and red for about $2.50 ea. I keep the red one in handle of my CRK Shadow IV which is basically my PSK for outdoors/wilderness stuff.
