For Survival Saturday's trending gear, we take a look at one of the most unique flashlights you can add to your EDC. The MecArmy X7S is a combination LED flashlight, lighter, and dry storage container. The light itself features a 130 lumen CREE XP-G2 LED that can throw light out to around 193 feet. Easy one-handed twist activation turns the light on and controls its output from an 8-lumen Low mode to its highest setting. The integrated 10180 li-ion battery lasts six hours on the Low setting and conveniently recharges via micro-USB. The X7S lighter resembles a trusty peanut lighter, designed for use with liquid fuel and measures in at a mere 2” long with the cap attached. The storage area is just big enough for pills or a spare battery. And because the body is made out of precision CNCed 304 stainless steel featuring IPX8 water resistance, you can feel confident that it can withstand the elements. The best part: each module of the X7S can be assembled with the rest, letting you customize depending on your day's needs. Add the MecArmy X7S to your EDC at the link below.

If the soft flame lighter was butane fired rather than fluid fired I would be owning one of these even though the price seems a bit high for what it is.
