Product Description

Heliography is the use of the sun's light to transmit messages dating back to ancient Greek & Roman times. This mirror is made of ¼" laminated glass, and instructions are printed on the back. The sighting hole features a special reflectorized screen that directs a beam of sunlight onto the target. Reflect sunlight from mirror onto a nearby surface (raft, hand etc.) Slowly bring mirror up to eye level and look through sighting hole. You will see a bright spot: this is the aim indicator. Hold mirror close to the eye and slowly turn and manipulate it so that the bright light spot is on the target. Even if no potential rescuers are in sight, continue sweeping the horizon or other possible rescuer locations, as mirror flashes can be seen for distances up to 20 miles.

This is a very small signal mirror which I'm glad because it is for a backpack where ounces count. The backside is black and has instructions written in white. It is small so you may want to read up on how to use it if you have poor eye sight. I like that it has a small hole on the corner so I could easily attach a lanyard. It is so small dropping it would be easy so a lanyard is nice to have; I wouldn't want to loose it in the brush.

I also purchased the olive drab case to go with this. It was an extra expense but it has belt loops and extra space so my lanyard and mirror both fit with a little room to spare.

I recommend the product.

This signal mirror is truly a survival tool. The sight grid works VERY well and shows you where the light is being pointed, even when directed up into a cloudless sky! It measures 2"x3" which may seem small but it's perfect for a bag with space limitations, however is IS a bit heavy if you are counting ounces.
Overall I'm quite pleased by this product!

I tried this out yesterday. I was impressed with how heavy it was, compared to the cheap plastic one I had been using. This is something that feels more like a tool than a toy. This will be good piece of mind in my backpack.

Fast shipping! Just received this in the mail today. What a great mirror, I compared it to my lexan mirror and it definitely is a better mirror. Made of heavy duty laminated glass that covers front and back, and outperforms the lexan type mirrors for sure. It puts out a denser or clearer beam than the other mirror. I think this is almost a mil-spec signal mirror. Very satisfied and i highly recommend

These are small, strong, well contructed, very reflective signal mirrors. They are smaller than most, but the aiming prism is very accurate and blingingly bright even on overcast days. Only downside is the thickness takes up a lot of space in your survival tin, but weigh that with the performance and value and it's worth it. Fits in Altoids tin nicely. Has a lanyard hole too. They seem tough, but I haven't given them a drop on a rock floor yet.

An awesome signal mirror. It has a middle layer to absorb shock and has simple directions printed on one side for easy reference. Easy to use, I love it!

DO NOT BUY!!! Buy the milspec version because this thing (Vector, Coughlans, Rescue Essentials) is TOTAL JUNK. As another reviewer stated the quality of this mirror is horrible and I should have listened. If I could rate it negative 5 stars I would. So what's wrong with it- Zero quality control. The two pieces of glass sandwiched together are totally misaligned. The bevels are way off and inconsistent to say the least. It looks like someone took a grinder to the edge while blindfolded. The aiming hole is also misaligned 1/8 inch(because the glass is way off). The edges have chips in the glass and the paint job again looks like it was done by someone who was blindfolded. I am disappointed the seller would actually put this garbage on Amazon. If you are buying this for a safety survival situation - don't do it!
