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.

                          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.
