    Lot's of choices here. I've tried Fenix and 5.11 lights, both with less than satisfactory results. I have several models of Surefire, and all have been flawless. My favorites are the EB1, the P2X Fury, and the E2D Defender. They're all pricey, but top quality. They do have some less expensive lights, like the G2X, that also perform quite well.

    I've been carrying the streamlight 1L-1AA. It's a pretty handy little light. Takes either a CR123 battery and is also capable of taking alkaline or lithium AA battery. With the single CR123 it has an output of 350 lumins and has three modes. 350, strobe or 40 lumin output. You can easily cycle between the modes. With the AA it's a 150 lumin output.
    Here's it for a size reference.

    Checkout the Trunite T01, almost just the size of an AAA battery:

    I have a Fenix E20 and my wife has a Fenix E12. Great lights and inexpensive.

    If you would like to, you could even have one that works in boiling water. Such nonsense in advertising.

    Take a look at Pelican. I have both Pelicans and Surefire and I prefer the Pelican which has a lifetime warranty by the way.

    I like the Fenix line of lights and the 4 Sevens line of lights.

    Lots of great flashlights out there at about any price range, hard to go wrong.
    Since the advent of the high power LEDs flashlights have made a quantum leap in reliability, light output and power consumption.
    It seems the weak link is switches and battery holders and some of the very cheap units are poor in this regard but it is possible to get good units at very reasonable prices.

    I have been carrying this UltraFire single AA light for a couple months.

    It's cheap at $6.99 and came with a Lithium Ion battery and charger.

    Also works with the standard 1.5v AA shown in the picture.

    I was worried at the low price, but so far so good.

    I'm starting to think the $100 + LED flashlights are made in the same Chinese factory as the $7 lights and differ only in the brand name stamped on the side.

    I just bought a Streamlight Microstream and it's great for everyday carry. 45 lumens, nice clip, and can easily throw it in a pocket without weighing you down. $17 or so on Amazon.
