Flashlights

Lets talk flashlights. I believe they are a necessary and important "tool" for camping. I have to admit I like collecting gadgets. Flashlights are one of the "tools" I enjoy collecting. When camping as soon as the sun goes down I try to make sure to have one on me at all times. I just purchased a Nebo Redline and so far love it. What brand/models does everyone else use?

We have several, but these two may be a little different than the typical 'flashlight':


-Motorola Walkie-talkie with the little flashlight on the bottom (pics 1-3)
-Coleman Head lamp - adjustable angle and three different intensities (pic 4)

I just love cap or headlights for camping and working on things. You do not have to hold a flashlight so your hands are freed up to do the job. Really nice for setting up tents in the dark. (Yep, some of us still use tents at times)

I like those crank up LED flashlights. No need for batteries and plenty of light.

I'm a big fan of Tiger-Light; especially when in bear country...

My favorite flashlight is this one. It is very, very bright; uses two cheap "C" cells; doesn't cost much; fits in a back pocket; the batteries last almost forever.
