The M-550 Pro Bugout Frag™ is a survival grenade designed to be tossed into your car’s glovebox or motorcycle’s pannier and forgotten about – until you need it. It also makes the perfect men’s gift, for those times when you have no idea what else they might like.

Each grenade is made from a combination of high-grade, US made 550 paracord with a total length of 45 feet when unraveled.

Pretty cool! Although it would have been better is made into a boob with a nipple ring vs a grenade... just sayin'.

$200 at Home Depot right now with a battery and charger: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee...-20P/207121220.

Love it. Getting old means I need more light to work on stuff, and this thing is bright as hell and being cordless means I can position it exactly where I need and not trip over cords. Great for getting light on stuff under the lift:

Nice, even if it looks like a weed-whacker with it's own guitar stand.

Just in case anyone was wondering - The M-550 Pro Bugout Frag is $70, which seems a bit much to me.

Looks handy. A lot more portable than my version a discarded IV stand with a 300 watt quartz light on the top, added hooks and a plug strip along the mast. Been a real handy bugger with space for 3 or 4 angle grinders and the PP gear. One thing I like about some of the LED lights is they don't seem to trigger the auto dark as easly as fluorescent.
