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.
