No not a Zippo! My cousin is becoming a firefighter and asked me about what flashlights will cut through smoke. He has issued ones with his gear but also would like one to keep near him at all times. I told him Surefire as these have an awesome rep, but are there any other lights out there? I just wanna give him options, plus if there is possibly anything else out there, I wanna give him the edge. Thanks in advance for great advice.
