Looking for a compact flashlight with red lens for my hunting pack, since the previous one didn't make it through the off-season.

Any suggestions are welcome but looking to keep the price under $50. Thanks in advance!

get a petzel or black diamond head lamp and a 15$ led and you got the best of both worlds

I'm also a giant fan of head lamps. I actually have a petzel head lamp and the $15 led, like BiL recommends, and it's a great combination.

Min Mag Pro for $29 throws out a nice beam of 250-275 lumens on just two AAs.

Why are they unpopular? I have a 2D and a 3D and like them both. Yes, I know they are heavy.

I guess that I really am a copy cat. That's my third light.
