What lights are you guys using? I'm looking for a flashlight small enough for my daypack but as bright as possible

I use Energizer that has 3 led white light settings and one red light, which I use for entrance to stand . Less than $20.

Headlights are nice, hands free. However, I picked up a couple of those tac light for 10 each and the flood on that light is awesome. I flip that on and have a huge circle of light and don't have to keep moving the light side to side. I attach it to the bill of my hat with rubber bands and good to go.

Some might think I'm over board with this but I have two small 100 lumen flashlights and 100 lumen headlight too in my pack. All LED. Light when you need it is one thing were more is better.

I like a minimum of 250 lumens when looking for a flashlight. The LED models are great and you can pick them up fairly in expensively. I typically loose one or two a year so I don't spend a bunch on them.

I've been using a streamlight headlamp for years. Its great but for bloodtrailing i always feel like im straining to see blood. Thanks for the suggestions i'll check them out

For bloodtrailing, I'm using 1000 lumens, bought from China. Blood stands out, and you can pick up the eyeballs of an animal, dead or alive, from better than 50 yards away. (I can pick up eyes at 50 yds with 500 lumens, not sure how far with 1000).

  http://lightake.com/ and http://www.dx.com/  There are undoubtedly others, but I've been pleased with the lights from there. It takes about a month to get one, but at $25 or so, it's a bargain.
