Sugoi Square Leg trunks

I have never been a shorty wearing kinda guy, but I picked up these trunks as my back-ups. Nothing is worse than going to the pool, and realizing your suit is in wash or hanging to dry on the deck chair. So two pairs is really better than one.
These little numbers have won me over. They are super durable, made from what Sugoi calls "Poly swim fabric", and have really stood up on my long term test. They honestly look they just came off the rack. They are still more or less my second pair of trunks, but as my primary pair fade and sag, the Sugoi square leg swim shorts are moving up to take over.
A recommended buy.

Primus Primlite CT

This light is bright!
Enuf said right?
Six LEDs and one diode light are plenty of light to stumble around the campsite or the backyard. I have used it to B.B.Q. in the dark, work under the hood, and to ride in the dark, although the throw isn't quite far enough.
I bought it for the final leg of a 24 hour running relay deep in the Canadian wilderness,, which began at 02:00 hrs and was lit by the moon. Needless to say the light performed and earned rave reviews as a result.
It comes with a nifty carrying pouch which diffuses the light in a tent or around sleeping creatures. 
About $80 CDN.
