There is no question about it, Coast makes some really great LED flashlights in a number of different product lines to meet the needs of your average user all the way up to those whose lives depend on them. There was one thing missing though, rechargeable flashlight options; but it looks like that will soon be covered as well.

Update 1/8/2013: Amazon has brought this deal back as a Gold Box for today. Get it while you can, you don't want to miss out.
We don't see deals like this very often, but this package deal that Amazon is currently running might be too good for you to pass up. I am even thinking about picking up the deal because it is that good.
For under $95 you can get the Bosch PS31-2AL1A which includes the Bosch 12V ⅜-Inch Drill Driver (plus one batteries & charger), which in this case, uses the L-BOXX as its carrying case. This kit also includes an additional L-BOXX1A, and could be used to sort drill bits, screws, fittings etc. And if you are unfamiliar with the L-BOXX system, it s a stackable modular storage system that Bosch sells in a few sizes.
Just buying the two L-BOXX cases alone would add up to almost $95, and the PS31 kit with two batteries sells for $125. You are basically getting a free drill with the purchase of the L-Boxx cases.
Lowes has marked down their 2-piece Kobalt Magnum Grip Pliers set from $24.98 to $14.98 through 1/20/2013, which is a savings of 40%. You also get an added Bonus pouch set if you
purchase the Magnum Grip pliers through Lowes.com.
You might have seen the Kobalt Magnum Grip Pliers on a TV commercial where they boast that their pliers offer the adjustability of a tongue & groove plier but with the added feature of the jaws always remaining parallel. This means that the jaws have more contact with the nuts or bolts you are gripping, which is said to offer greater gripping power.
The 2-piece set includes a 6-inch and an 8-inch Magnum Grip Plier. The 6-inch plier also features a v-notch jaw that better accepts hex, square, and round objects, while the 8-inch features removable rubber jaw covers for non-marring applications.
I haven't used these pliers myself, but it has pretty good reviews from the Lowe website.
It has been a couple of months since I started my 72-Hour kit build, which uses the Bosch Click & Go L-BOXX system to store and organize all of my survival supplies. It was a bit of work in getting all of the supplies together, getting everything organized and publishing the content here on Tool-Rank, but in the end I feel better prepared to handle a disaster of any kind.
