Sounds like you have to cycle through all the output levels to turn off. Meh.

“Do-everything”?

Can it function as a brick smaher, or glass broker?

Price went up. With all the discounts it’s now $20. But save your money…

The directions say you can turn it from a flash to a solid color. This isn’t true at all. It is a constant flashing of colors not suited for a front walkway as it would be distracting to drivers and annoying to neighbors with the constant flashing.

Yeah, saw that. But still, the solar cells, converter boards, NiMH cells, and some LEDs to play with, oughtta be worth the price of admission.

Sizing is the big unknown.

 

  If they don't fit, they'll be inexpensive donations to Goodwill or homeless shelters.  Doubt they'll be as durable as my trusty old milsurp parka, but we're old enough now that if they only last 10 or 15 yrs, we may not be around to care.

 

How are you liking yours?  Did you end up getting the correct size?

I've tried several of them now, and they all run large.  The small is still too big for me.  A proper ski jacket should fit more snugly to better retain body heat. 

 

All in all, these jackets are ski jackets by name only.  A proper ski jacket needs heavy duty metal side pocket zippers that zip down, not up, so that you can hang a lift ticket on them without having it all fall apart or unzip itself while skiing.  A ski jacket also needs a powder skirt to seal out snow when skiing.  It also needs zippable vents for when you get too warm while on the slopes. My old ski jacket has all this, and feels lighter/less puffy, and it wasn't that much more expensive.

 

But as long as you're not actually planning on skiing in it, this "ski" jacket is OK if you like the style and can find a size that fits you well.

Hmm...

I don't ski and I've never worn a "real" ski jacket.

My jackets work for my purposes, though.

Yeah, the two I got were well made and a good deal @ less than $25 each and lack of a ‘powder skirt’ was not a deal breaker for me.
We dont get a lot of snow down here near the Gulf Coast and the only time Ive been skiing(cross country) was once in Wyoming in the middle of July.
I’ll probably only need them a handful of times each winter….. Beer Beer

You even might call it a “tracktical” ski jacket.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

The T-shirts I wear are M to L, depending on the shirt.  My wife wears S to M T-shirts.  I ordered a L jacket, wife a M.  They fit OK, maybe a tiny tad snug.  Sleeves are a little too long but the sleeve specs in the size charts are weird anyway; that's the main thing that was confounding us pre-purchase.

For inexpensive bang-around dog park jackets they'll likely be fine.  That old Italian milsurp parka I like so much is probably the warmest jacket I've ever owned as an adult.  Remains to be seen if the new ski jackets are as warm, but for ~$17.00 ea. we're not complaining.

Now that we have a better handle on sizing we've ordered some for Christmas presents.

Bluetooth headphones for $15.50

They have good, but limited, feedback on Amazon.

They might be a good deal.

$9 for a “killing button” sounds like a hell of a deal.

I just hope there are multiple brightness levels – description is not very detailed.

Yea after looking at it again it may not have multiple. For what it’s worth though I have one similar and there are 3 settings. I had it in my tent one night and there was a bug in it in the morning so at least it made me feeeel like it worked. Hah
