The RLL013-01 Rescue Laser Light is a hand-held day and nighttime laser signaling device that provides a convenient, effective way to signal a rescue party. Its waterproof, rugged design combines the safety of a laser signaling device with the convenience of a flashlight.
This is the compact model preferred by military, hikers, kayakers, and other outdoor enthusiasts that want to minimize weight.
Unlike pyrotechnic flares, the Rescue Laser Light is non-flammable, environmentally safe, and can operate continuously for 40 hours on a single, long-life, replaceable CR123 lithium battery (available at most department stores and wherever camera batteries are sold).
Includes a SIGHT RING to help aim at your target!
For customers outside of the USA, please purchase through one of our Authorized International Dealers.

Mine came with a soft plastic cap to protect the optics, a great idea. Appears to be well made. One rotates the sight (plastic part with hole that is not the lanyard hole) to align with the bar shaped reflection of the laser beam. This sight can potentially slide off the aluminum laser body, although it grips tightly, so I put some tape in front of it and added a reflective wrist leash. If I dropped it in neck deep snow at night, it would be a challenge to recover it. I will mostly this device for back country skiing where I can shine it in the trees, snow or fog overhead should I break a leg. Understand that the beam's reflection, such as reflecting off trees, is generally invisible during the day although one can see the beam when looking directly at it from a distance when using it as a signal flare. I carry a whistle, PLB and satellite communicator but the laser may make it easier for someone to find me given that satellite dependent gizmos cannot communicate when the satellites are under trees or behind mountains.
Small, compact, simple to use and carry. In contrast to the "Old Type Flares" it is easy to test and other than the battery, which can easily be checked and replaced, it does not lend itself to decline over time. Therefore, it should be there, if and when you need it. Hopefully never.
When I was a kid the idea of signaling was how loud you could blow a whistle and/or making sure you could build a fire. We had no cell phones nor had even imagined lasers. This thing can signal about as far as you could ever need. I'm not a mariner so I picked this up for backcountry use. With 40 hours on a battery- this will be a great addition to the signaling group in my kit.
As a former SAR team member, I always carried the full sized rescue laser. Such a great design idea (laser bar vs dot), easy to use, and if you could only have one item for signaling, this would be it. Now I keep the smaller version for camping/travel, which is just as effective (more compact battery). Well constructed, thoughtfully designed, and most of all dependable. thanks Greatland.
Small size makes this device good for kayakers and sailors alike. Combined with a pfd and a strobe light, this will make finding you much more probable. Having participated n searches myself, if you are on the water you should have one of these with you. Otherwise it's like looking for floating coconuts from 500 feet altitude.
These last for hours compared to 40 seconds for a meteor flare. Fits into your PFD or pocket. great back up if you ever need emergency assistance. I combine mine with a Personal Locator beacon for on water safety offshore.
