Last year, when I was on a Boy Scouts campout, my buddy and I were walking along a trail at night to get to the restroom. Alongside us was a 50-foot drop-off into a creek below. I had my SureFire flashlight out, leading the way, attached to a SureFire paracord lanyard around my wrist, when a patch of leaves gave way and I fell off the drop-off. Luckily, my lanyard caught on to a tree sticking out the side of the drop-off and I was able to hang on. My buddy went and got a rope, tossed it to me, and I was able to climb up out of the drop-off, thanks to my durable SureFire lanyard saving me from a devastating fall.
That's how SureFire saved my life that night.
