I guess every guy is into their own thing. I'm happy with my Fenix LD15 that I got for $35, and I thought that was pricey for a little AA flashlight. My next AA flashlight will be the Fenix E12 for $23 on Amazon.

its whatever works for the individual. being into flashlights, in past years i've spent as much as $500 on one, but these days half that is more than enough for me.

Here's a brand new product that looks interesting - small, bright, and rechargeable: also affordable

All that and reasonably watertight too. Impressive at that price.

I have a Nitecore light here that looked good on paper but after I had it in my hands, not so much. The ergonomics are terrible; whoever designed the On/Off switch shoud have their engineering degree rescinded. Of the LED lights I have that is the last light I'll go to. But that's just my opinion.

Gerber (the knife company) makes some pretty good flashlights. The Infinity Ultra Task Light can run for thirty hours straight on one AA battery. They also make the Bear Gryls light. It has a water proof match case on one end. I have one and use the match case for a spare battery. Just be sure to put some tape on the ends of the battery. Sixty hours of light in the size of a mini Maglight is darn good. It can fit in the Niteize head band for Maglights. I also have a Arc AAA Premium and a Fenix LD01 AAA and have one in my pocket always.
