Dang!!! Went to walk the dog with my brand new Coleman flashlight and HOLY SMOKE! It is very bright with damn good range. I shined it across the street and it clearly lit a tall pine tree. For $24 bucks you cannot find a better bargain!
Fits into the pocket just nice. Not bulky at all. Press the button on end lightly to obtain a quick pulse of light. Press until clicks and you get a steady stream of light.
I like the CR2 batteries because of the longer life.
This forum sure paid off! I got the tip about 2 weeks from a Coleman thread.
I saw a 2 pack of Serengeti hand/pocket size tactical flashlights with 125 lumens at Sam's Club for $28.00 (for two!). I was going to see if that was a pretty bright light but I know it offered strobing as well as constant on light and the price seemed good. Sounds like I might need to get back and pick those up.
The 115 lumens light uses 2 CR321 batteries and is a little smaller than the one you linked to. I didn't see it on the W-M site, but they have 'em in every W-M I've been to in the last few months. It is called the Coleman Max. $24.88
FWIW, I had mine fall apart in my pocket at work. The head and collar separated from the body. In it's defense I am separating bread trays off of stacks all night. I regularly catch the trays with my hip. I think the light took the brunt of a few impacts. I got to look it over this morning. I managed to save all the parts out of my pocket. I had to disassemble it completely, but was able to get it back together. It still works too. So although it did seem to work loose and come apart after about 3-4 weeks of daily use, I was able to save it. Now I need to carry it in a different pocket and go easy on it. BTW, I have the larger multi colored version. The red light is great for getting into my treestand in the dark.
