    Just got one of these in the mail yesterday. Pretty cool light. Unlike others like it, it clicks on and off so you don't have to constantly squeeze it. Me likey. Might try to DIY a light that uses a single AAA though. Lasts longer and easier to replace. Maybe a small section of aluminum tubing would fit a AAA well. Now the gears are turnin'. >.<

    The Dutch Ridgelight and the Nite-Ize SpotLit mentioned above are both great lights. Depends though, on what you want the light for, if you need red-light, what battery sizes you are willing to carry around and how many hours you will use the lights.

    I usually carry a couple of different light sources with me, my current favorite is a Microstream by Streamlight it produces 28 lumens from a single AAA battery, I also plan to pick up a Nano to leave on my ridge line.

    You can't beat Streamlights quality and if I am miles from home I like gear I can depend on.

    Hope this helped =)

    I had been clipping my ball cap headlamp to my ridgeline but we just picked up a couple of those Nite-Ize things. Saw them at REI first then saw them cheaper at Home Depot and could't resist.
