Super thin, ultra lightweight and very small – you’ll barely notice you’re carrying it.
A signal mirror is an essential piece of survival gear. This particular model is issued to the British army and can be aimed very accurately at a target.
In a survival situation, do not underestimate the functionality and effectiveness of this device to attract attention. A flash from a heliograph can be seen from a tremendous distance. Not only does the BCB signal mirror give off super intense flashes, but it also has instructions stuck on the back in case you forget how to use it.
