    Led zipper pulls at Dutchware

    I have a confession;
    I have lost my hammock in the dark on more than one occasion. Sometime I set up at a group hang and the forest just looks different after dark and I have gone to the privy and those stealthy colors just makes you set up disappear. Nite-ize has the perfect solution. A very tiny LED in a zipper pull. They probably make them as a safety product for people walking and jogging in the dark. However these work perfectly with just enough glow to find your way back home.

    Neat little idea and not very intrusive at night. Until the next order!!

    I have a couple of them, and love them. I got mine a year ago from Academy, but haven't seen any there since..

    Hey Dutch,

    I've seen those before and thought about using it on my hammock. It is very easy to lose sight of the hammock at night. Maybe I will pick one up.
    Take care,

    I have a selection of them. I keep one on my zipper pull, as they were marketed for.

    My Brindle Service Dog wears one, my ridge line has two, one is in case the other one burns out. My keys also have one attached. They are light, cheap and work well for me.

    Here in the West, Home Depot and Fred Meyers carry them. REI has them at a much higher price.
