Review of the US glowstick
Since every man's right includes not making an bonfires, this is a great alternative for sitting in a ring and telling ghost stories, even though it won't roast your marshmallows.
This stick emits pretty decent light and it isn't really suited for marking your friends, as those that aren't so friendly may see it as well. Therefore, when using it to mark other friendlies, you should tape it so that there is a small opening in the middle. This way it will remain visible when viewed from the right angle, but it won't illuminate the whole area around you. A little tip for all of you soldiers: put this on the ruck of the guy on point. This way the enemies can't see the light, and the guy in front will be a lot easier to follow in the dark. But don't tell them that I told you, they might get mad.
In the field test this little stick glowed for quite some time. The promised 8.5 hours on the packed was more than enough, after which the power starts to drop. For marking objectives, this thing works even longer, nearly a full 24 hours.
