I've noticed a few posts in the last few pages that seem to be searching for information on Tools of the Trade that is not inherently specific to aviation or CAP use of those tools.  For example, the best water purifiers to carry, or which headlamps have the best battery life.

I believe this forum provides an excellent place to share the pros and cons of using all of these Tools in aviation or more specifically CAP uses, but there already exist many other forums on the web that have useful discussion of the General information on these Tools.  Here is a list of some of the more common:

General Survival (with some Aviation specific coverage):
http://equipped.org/

Flashlights (and Batteries in general):
http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/

Multitools/Knives/etc.:
http://edcforums.com/

Knives/Multitools/etc.:
http://www.bladeforums.com/

I don't mean to imply that these sites are the only resources in their areas, or even the final authority, but they all contain vast amounts of discussion of the various Tools of the Trade that would benefit most of the forum attendees here.  Essentially, if the question isn't about using the item in a Cockpit, the answer is probably at one of those sites.
