THESE ARE A BIT BIGGER THAN I THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE BUT THAT'S OK - THEY LAST LONGER THAN THE LITTLE CHEAP ONES YOU CAN BUY. THEY ARE 100% RELIABLE SO IF YOU'RE STRANDED OR LOST OR NEED TO GET SOMEONES ATTENTION IN A DESPERATE SITUATION THESE WILL GIVE YOU THE PIECE OF MIND THAT YOU NEED. NEVER GO OUT AND DO ANY KIND OF 'ADVENTURING' WITHOUT THEM - THEY COULD BECOME A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH.

Oridinarily I would pick these items up at your West Marine Store, but you recently moved your store too far away to be practical to drive that far to pick up a small item like this. However, the online store works just fine. It took a little longer to receive thsi item because it is considered an explosive, but that was expected.

              Comments about Handheld Red Locator Flares, Four Pack:

              The best thing about this purchase was that the month of manufacture of the flares was the same month I purchased giving maximum life out this product (provided of course they are not needed in the interim!)

              This even though the product was on sale. That is honest advertizing.
