Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mirror for wildlife tracking! These little mirrors are great for wildlife biologists! Seeing detail in wildlife tracks is difficult when the sun is directly overhead, so I use these mirrors to reflect sun onto the tracks from the side. The tracks suddenly pop out with great shadows and highlights, and this relief allows me to identify and photograph the tracks. I also use these mirrors to reflect light into dark tunnels, burrows, or caves to see what wildlife might be hiding within. My only real qualm with these mirrors is that they scratch with incredible ease. I wish Coghlan's would include a scratch-resistant coating on the mirrors. You may wish to purchase screen protectors designed for cell phones and cut them to the proper size for the mirror. Overall, this is a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love it! I try to be as close to a minimalist as possible, but this is my one luxery item. Being a contact wearer, it is nice to be able to see when putting them in and taking them out. Just be sure to wash the deet off of your fingers 1st!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, strong, and light, mirror Great strong light mirror, I would say it's unbreakable in any reasonable situation, however, upon seeing the "unbreakable" feature, my friend managed to snap it in half with his body weight...so..ya. I'll be ordering another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mirror This is a very lightweight mirror that I use for hygiene purposes. It is unbreakable and very compact and thin. It could double as a signal mirror should I lose my purpose-built signal mirror: I would only just reflect light on the back of my other hand while it is lined up with the target before flashing, because there is no aiming hole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Changing Contacts Used this for changing contacts out in the wilderness. It worked really nicely, and I didn't have to be too gentle with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, a little large I got this mirror for backpacking. It seems a bit big for a thru-hike (I'm counting every once) so I may try to cut it down. I haven't used it yet, but it seems like good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For disaster kit I bought this for my disaster kit. I have not yet had to put it to use, but it came as pictured online and I'm assuming it will work as needed. Glad it was provided by REI and a good price too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good! This signal mirror is very simple. It would be nice if it had a hole in the middle, but I haven't had a problem using it, and it works well!
