Using reflected sun light for signaling is an idea that has been around since ancient times but signal mirrors really became a standard piece of survival/outdoor gear during World War II. Broken mirrors were readily available and troops stranded behind enemy lines would use them to signal for help.
The modern signal mirror was actually patented in the 60’s – it’s a scratch resistant plastic (acrylic) mirror that can float and has a view finder in the center for aiming the reflection.
ECLO Wallet Signal Mirror – always with you
We’ve put a lot of time and energy into developing a signal mirror that fills a very specific purpose (fitting in your wallet) and still works as good as a standard signal mirror. Here’s what makes the ECLO Wallet Signal Mirror is different from store-bought signal mirrors:
- Ultra Thin – This signal mirror is seriously thin, it’s about as thick as a business card.
- Flexible – The signal mirror can flex quite a bit and still be flat enough to not distort the reflection.
- Mirror Finish – You get an AMAZING reflection with this signal mirror. The finish is mirror-like quality.
The BEST piece of gear is the one you have with you. That’s what really sets the ECLO Wallet Signal Mirror apart from the rest – you can put it in your wallet so you’re ready when the time comes.
Just make sure you know how to use a signal mirror and practice your signaling before having to use it.
Right tool for the job
Keep in mind, this is not meant to be your main signal mirror, this is meant to be the signal mirror you always have with you. Make sure you have the right tool for the job. So if you’re a boater then you’re going to want a standard signal mirror that floats.
