They are good but watch the dates

I have these on the boat for safety and a must per CG regs. You have to check the dates on them when you are buying them. Some on the rack were only good...Read complete review

I have these on the boat for safety and a must per CG regs. You have to check the dates on them when you are buying them. Some on the rack were only good for a year or so.They should have a exp date 3 years from when you buy them.

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.

      What is not to like? I have used these for many years, and keep them as spares after their expiration date. When they get really old, I light them off before disposal, and never had a failure.

                      Hopefully I will not have a need for this product. If I do I certainly know how to use it (them) and will rely
                      on them for my life.

                          I wish these wouldn't expire as soon as they do. I understand things like this have expiration dates but just seems like I keep buying these over and over again
