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.
i would reccomend one of these headlampd it has 135 lumens and it comes with blue and red leds on the bottom for tracking. good price too. have one from 4 years ago and it works amzingly well
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.
Go to fenix lights dot com . I have their p3d it is roughly the size of a mini mag but has three brightness settings from about a mini mag bright up to 120 lumen's which is blinding bright . and they are normally cost less than sure fire lights .
what the heck at above sorry
