Something you would rather than not when needed
4 November 2016
With winter, and therefore dark nights fast approaching, I saw this on a lightning deal and grabbed it. It's one of those things that nobody needs 99% of the time, but if you happen to be in that 1% moment, then it could really matter and you'll be glad to have had it in the car. If I was to be critical of the pack, the batteries that come with the torch or not from high quality brand, and the shelf life of them only gives 25 months from my date of purchase. I also think a tow rope would have made a great addition too, however I suspect the price would therefore be raised, meaning potentially less cars having such a kit in so can understand why cost measures have been implemented here. The touch does come with a small plastic cover inside it though which stops the batteries from being drained prematurely. It's up to you whether you take this out now or leave in until you require it's usage.
For what you get though, you can tell the overall quality is good. The shovel has a good weight to it and whilst it may not last many years of service, it will last you during a moment of crisis or two and beyond. It all fits into a nicely sized pack which won't get in the way in even the smallest of boots. Highly recommend.
