    Question looking for new slim flashlight....idears?

    Hey guys and gals... so I'm looking for a new flashlight. Currently I have a Streamlight Stylus Pro (Stylus Series - Stylus Pro | Streamlight)

    I love the flashlight but I'm wanting something a little more powerful, but I'd like to find something about the same size putting out about at least 100 lumens. I keep it clipped in the inside of my right pocket towards the far outside of the pocket, then I keep my Benchmade D2 Griptillian clipped on the inside of the pocket next to the light. (This makes no sense as i'm writing it, basically they're both clipped on my right inside pocket) I don't like alot of stuff in my pocket but I don't want something really bulky since I'm constantly bending/walking/sitting all day.

    I'd like to keep it under $100ish if possible. Any suggestions/idears welcome. As always thanks again in advance!

    I would take a look at the Fenix L series.

    I dont have personal experience with the LD05 but it looks like it might fit your needs.

    Fenix LD05 High Intensity LED Penlight 2xAAA 100 lumens!

    I own the L2D and love this light.

    Thanks Snoop. I definitely will look into these very reasonable prices and pretty much spot on what I was looking for. Thanks again.

    I've got one of these on pre-order should be shipping "any day now" but it's been delayed.
    Preon Kit, Black 4Sevens.Com

    In the 2 cell config it gives 3 levels 2,22,160 lumens plus some additional modes(SOS,strobe,beacon).

    Similar to the LD05 above, just another option.

    I have a Fenix PD30, which is spectacular. It gets used at least once EVERY day. I'm still on the first set of batteries, and had it since June. Just bought my dad one for Christmas. Small, powerful, long battery life, lots of great features.

    I found this at Lowes, made by Coast. I bought it to replace an Energizer pen light that had broken and was returned. 100 lumens and also has a single red LED light for low-light use. It's sold as a tactical light and is about 1" in diameter...meaning it should fit in most tactical light holders. I'm thinking about picking up a Safariland RLS to mount it in so i have a night-light for the G23.
    Best part, cost around $25, runs on AAA batteries, and has a lifetime guarantee. The only downside is that the on/off buttons are up near the front of the light. I would prefer it to be the end cap button style, but for the money, it's really a nice light. I'll post pics once i get it mounted in the RLS and on the Glock.

    Not a lot at risk there, but that's probably not built to handle recoil. The LED helps, but there are other factors. Like the batteries slamming into the back of the LED board. It might work fine, or might not, just FYI.

    A cool site that carries lots of flashlights I just found is GoingGear.com. As a previous poster said, "Don't blame me when your wallet is empty."

    Look at SureFire's entire line. I have stepped away from SureFire a couple of times to pick up one or two off brands...I've come back for good to SureFire.
    Buy 2 or 3 times under $100 with something else, buy once with SureFire. My SureFire L4 LumaMax was expensive, but it would blind Hellen Keller...well, sort of......2 hours of 120 lumens.
    I had to stretch and strain to put out the $$, but it was well worth it, and SureFire gives excellent service...they share a service department with the MayTag man.

    4 Sevens is good. I like the Nightcore lights myself.
