U.S. Military CMG Infinity Ultra Flashlight

When dependability is paramount. I have a number of these lights, one of which has a blue led, and I love every one of them. I own many flashlights purchased over many years. The CMG Infinity and Infinity Ultra are two of the best last resort emergency illumination tools I have ever owned. NEVER has one of them let me down. They are not designed to illuminate a football field or land F-18's on a carrier deck and should not be held accountable for not fulfilling such tasks. They were designed to… Full review

Fenix LD15R

The best, most useful, compact flashlight I’ve ever carried. Bright when I need it, just enough when that’s all I need, plus great battery life. The small but powerful Fenix LD15R. For most of my outdoor life experiences, I’ve been frustrated to one extent or another by light. Or the lack thereof. Flashlights, headlamps, floodlights, mini-lights, etc. I’ve used innumerable lights over the years, but now find myself singing “Hallelujah!” in response to modern LED light sources and their… Full review

Headspin The Lighting Kit

Overall I am very impressed with the HeadSpin Light System. I have the feeling that I am just starting to discover all of the functions, features, and uses. I was immediately impressed with the HeadSpin Light System when it arrived in the mail. When I unboxed the product I discovered that it was contained within a sturdy semi-hard case. There were five easily identifiable pieces within the kit—the light head, a handle, a headband, a bicycle mount, and a wall charging plug. There was also an instruction… Full review

Ledlenser MT10

Good flashlight, very bright. Downside is the side switch button. The MT10 is a VERY bright 1000 lumens. I love that. Who wants a teeny 120-lumen light? I carry a flashlight because I want to actually SEE stuff and this makes that happen. Recharging port is a standard micro USB ports, so finding a cord is easy. I like the sliding focus ability. I've had the flashlight for over six months. Like all flashlights/multi-tools, the nylon case that comes with it is crap. I currently carry it in a Nite… Full review

Maglite XL50 LED Flashlight

With this tool you get Maglite quality and durability, plus 200 lumens of bright, focused light with good spill...enough light to clearly see whatever goes "bump" in the night. I've carried a Maglite (in its various forms) for over 30+ years, and I still have my first Maglite bought new in the mid-'80s. Iconic quality with exceptional performance...Maglite. When I think of iconic outdoor products from my youth, a few items come to mind immediately... Coleman lanterns and stoves, the Buck folding… Full review

Ozark Trail 150-Lumen Flashlight

The Ozark Trail 150-Lumen Flashlight is perfect for any overnighter. It lights up your surroundings nice and bright. This flashlight is amazing. This was the first reliable flashlight I ever owned. I’ve had it for six years and it still works like a charm. It’s made from a sturdy material that assures it will last. The button to activate the light is fantastic. The way that it is designed makes it so that there is basically no chance you will accidentally turn on the flashlight. You have to… Full review

Ledlenser P5R

Brilliant, literally, small rechargeable torch. The adjustable light beam is simply amazing. Firstly, this is a small, lightweight, all metal torch. Because it is so lightweight and small the battery is small (2.6Whr) but it has more than sufficient capacity for an overnight camp—3hr/15hr battery life—on each of two intensity settings—420/20 lumens brightness. You recharge by a USB cradle. The torch itself is brilliant. It has a wonderful focusable beam from spot to moderate flood. On max… Full review

Light & Motion Solite 150

Highly recommended after several tests outdoor (several days of hiking in the German Alps). I disagree with the first review: I consider it an absolute PLUS to be able to charge via USB. Take a power bank and charge the Solite as often as needed on a trip of several days. Everyone has multiple wall plug adaptors already, so why should LightnMotion provide another? Full review

Ledlenser P7.2

Not cheap, but you will have a first class flashlight for life. I've used it regularly for at least two years now. Tough cylinder of aluminum, it resists anything that you (your kids, dog, or car) can do to it. The lens is kind of plastic and recessed, so it won't break if the torch tumbles down the mountain. It even resists operating its switch under water for some minutes... though the maker only calls it "weather/splash resistant". The "little flashlights just in case" are almost free. But if… Full review
