I have gone through probably 10 flashlights. None have thrilled me. Still searching for "my" holy grail. Looking for:

1. Compact - Pocket, pack. 3-5 inch type
2. High lumens
3. Good battery longevity

Dont want to drop 200 but tired of coming up disappointed and ready to spend if needed. Any suggestions/opinions/experiences ?

Thanks in advance

Iím sold on Streamlight. Iíve got one I use all the time at work that I change the batteries on about once a year. Theyíve held up better than Surefires, for me, and for a lot less money.

I have the Strap-on" style flashlight that goes over you cap. This has been the only way for me to take a flashlight with me hunting. My hands are always full of stuff.

Cree C8- under $10 on ebay. They're the same light US companies sell as some sort of hunting flashlight for $100+. I've found that I lose my lights long before they break, and have never had a problem with these not working.

What type of use? I have a light that fits on the brim of my cap. It has 4 different color lights red, green, blue and white. I use it for walking to my deer stand. Uses a couple 20/32 batteries.

I get the Ultra fire's off of Amazon starting at around $10, can get them in clear, red , green and blue. Shines about as good as a $275 dollar one I bought 6 years ago from a guy in New Your.
