ScuzzMonkey is on a distinguished road
I will third the recommendation for body wipes (although, frankly, we just get the "Baby" wipes, the name doesn't bother us) and second the warning about the Gill gloves... haven't been at all happy with the durability, stitching started coming out after the first season.

Also, someone said something about returning the ACR light for a different model... don't! The best thing about that combo light is that you will use it regularly, and thus, if you ever need it, you'll know it's working. Can't remember how many times I have seen people turn their strobe on after finally remembering to test it after it's been sitting forgotten on their vest for several seasons only to see nothing happen. In a perfect world, you would test them regularly anyway... but as a practical matter, the best guarantee is to make the test part of something you need to do anyway, like using a flashlight.
