Short note: Armytek Zippy on construction site

Had to work on a construction site for a few days and thought I’d take the Zippy with me:

I noticed:

+ it’s perfect to walk around and work in dark areas
+ it’s not as blinding for others as I thought it would be (of course, don’t bring others in danger – switch off when not alone)

- the clip opening is too small for thick materials like this loop on my safety jacket, so attaching it is unnecessarily fiddly
- the clip is not strong enough, I nearly lost the Zippy
- the button is too stiff

That’s it already. I think with very little effort, this little, robust light is a superior replacement for head lamps in many areas where you need to wear a hard hat. I’ll not again enter contruction sites so soon, but if I have to, I’ll again take Zippy with me (and try to find a way to secure it).

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

Ain’t got a zippy, but those are 2 D-rings on the ends? Might be able to get a molle strap and loop it through…

It’s one ring, small diameter. The light should have a tight seat on the jacket. I’d probably use tape to secure it.
