Compact, lightweight and with plenty of functions, the Hobo Glow first came to our attention when we saw Hobo’s video showing it being driven over by a pick-up truck. On closer inspection, and having been challenged to do so, we tried to break one and failed. Talk about robust – this is literally as tough as it gets! There are several light modes, including two strengths of white light, constant red light, flashing red and an intermittent red, and I like that the back of the unit is blanked out so it only emits the light in the direction that you want it to. It can also be used as an emergency powerbank. The only tiny issue I had with this one is that the function button is situated beneath the hanging loop, which can make it tricky to locate and use when the light is hanging above you. It’s a minor gripe, however, on what is an otherwise extremely impressive light. Oh, and it’s totally waterproof too, as we was demostrated at Carp In The Park when it was in a tank of water for the entire weekend, switched on!
