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.

Buy a 4-pack when only 3 are required

What a racket. Coast Guard requires 3 flares. Orion packages in sets of 4. Then indicates the flares are only good for 3 years. Making this a mandatory rip-off.

                  By law you have to have them in your boat. When my old ones are about to expire I watch for the sale that West Marine has for them.

                      Staying legal with yet more flares purchased, never used any bought since 1985 and hope to continue wasting money on flares. Cheapest ones that were day night legal. Maybe someday I will fire off the 25 mm parachute flares I bough decades ago, I bet they are still good.
