    Flashlights ?????

    In the December ON on page 116, Kit Vercella reviews a tactical LED flashlight that sells for $70.

    I just bought a Mag-Lite XL50 that does all the same things for less than 1/2 the price.

    What flashlight do you carry on your bike?
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    I carry 3. 1 Tiny key ring LED (free), Cheapo LED ($2.00), and a head light ($13.00). All very small.

    Get these at Harbor Freight, they work great, cost effective, if you loose one no big deal. I got them stashed everywhere. Sometimes you get them for free with a coupon. Good stocking stuffers too.

    Thumbs up

    3 Mag-Lites - one in a forward compartment, one in the trunk (handy), one in the tool kit (less handy).

    On my trips I carry only LED headlamps. Just reached a point where I got tired of trying to aim a flashlight where I needed light, or trying to hold it under one arm etc when I needed both hands.

    Fenix LD10. Similar to the Surefire, less money too. Uses AA batteries.

    I use the Fenix LD20, incredible brightness, really long battery life (standard AA), fits the clamp in the RT glove box. http://j.mp/FenixF20

    And from that thread, my Maratech Rev.2 is still going strong. The anodizing is becoming a little frayed around the edges, but I use it almost every night at work. Why I opted for black I work a night shift... silver would have been better.

    A bit on the pricey side; $24.95



    And I too quit using Duracell's at OM's suggestion.

    I also own a Maratac, but AA batteries. Nice unit.
