Maglite LED XL50
This flashlight put all my other flashlights to shame.
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.
