You say you’ve got your bluetooth-enabled speaker embedded in a fidget spinner? You own a fleet of Groot-branded HD camera drones? Toss that crap aside because what you truly deserve is a tactical flashlight, or even better, a tactical lantern.
How many times have to said this to yourself:
I need a lantern, but not just any lantern — it must be tactical.
“Tactical” generally means something related to military operations. It can also refer to carefully planning or strategizing to achieve an end. So when you’re using precision and strategy to illuminate a dark place, you want the type of photons that radiate from a tactical light.
(Be aware that you will also need batteries, or, as I like to call them, “tactical portable electricity cylinders.”)
Below you’ll see two lanterns, one tactical and one not. Study this carefully so you don’t accidentally purchase a non-tactical light.
Tactical Lantern – plastic – uses 3 AA batteries – collapsible
Non-tactical Lantern – plastic – uses 3 AA batteries – collapsible
Got it? Now it’s time to go out and plan your illumination campaign. Next, we’ll examine hydration systems (sometimes called “water bottles”).
