Survival pen

THE SITUATION: Have you ever found yourself wishing you had a pen that had a light and a glass breaker, or could work as a cap light and a ballpoint pen?

THE ANSWER: If that really is your question, Browning has introduced its 4-in-1 Survival Pen. This pen, flashlight, cap light and glass breaker comes from a company better known for its firearms and knives.

THE DETAILS: The pen uses four LR-41 button batteries to give the pen an eight-hour run time when on the highest setting, and gives the white LED light an effective distance of 22 yards. The black aluminum pen measures 51/10 inches long and weighs 0.96 ounces with the batteries..

PRICE: $22.
