What do you think of this idea?
Most hunters spend time in the woods when it’s dark. Often, we’re out there before dawn and don’t head back out until well after sundown. We also use our hands quite a bit — for gathering gear, holding our gun or bow, climbing trees, digging through our packs, and that sort of thing. Having to use one hand to hold a light during those times can be aggravating, and is almost always counterproductive.
You can stick a light in your teeth, which I’ve done many times. Heck, some lights are even made with that in mind, like this one. But that’s usually uncomfortable and tends to make one slobber. Un-cool.
There are also hands-free lights that strap onto your head, lights that clip onto your cap or hat brim, caps with built-in lights, and lights that strap onto your arm. These have been around for a while, but now someone has come up with another idea.
A “hands-free” hunting light that is attached to your, um, hand.
Well, that’s what they’re calling it. The new Hunting Light Gloves from T&M Tactical feature a light attached to the back of one glove. The light goes on your non-dominant hand, so for right-handed folks the light would go on the left glove, and could then be shined to illuminate things that you are engaging with your right hand.
