This flashlight put all my other flashlights to shame.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $30

This flashlight put all my other flashlights to shame. I always prefer a headlamp for backpacking, but I always bring a small backup in case the headlamp dies. 

I brought this on my recent outing. It is AMAZINGLY bright, and shines long distances compared to my headlamp.

It seems pricey at $30, but well worth it. Lightweight, durable. Picked it up at wal^mart.


I have the XL200, supposedly bigger and more powerful one, but as for brightness, I saw much better comparably sized and affordable tactical flashlights than these.
