Surefire makes a really top quality product. I've had one of their NRA Specials (about $75) for several years now, and am delighted with it. Small and compact, but very powerful.

As good a Surefire as you can afford. Carry extra batteries, they tend to fail quickly. Mag Light LED models and Pelican are also tough and reliable.

You can't go wrong with a surefire, carry the extra batteries (that goes with any of the uberbright flashlights) as they go through them quickly (lots of juice to make them bright)

Recently, Surefire batteries have gotten better. Still are not as long lived as one would hope

surefire has dual stage flashlights so you only have to use the super bright when you need it to help extend the average battery life.

Sams Club sells a pair of decent flashlights for 30.00, they're 2 stage and very bright. Not Surefires, but good for the money.

Streamlight has some awesome models to choose from that are rechargable. The new LED Stinger DS are great lights with strobe for room clearing if you need it, the fact that it's a LED means longer use from one charge, very bright lights!
They also have three brightness settings just by holding the power button down.
