    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.

    I just loop my headlamp strap over the ridge line. Since I carry it anyway, one less thing I have to lose out there as my organization skill stink.

    +1 on that.

    It works really great too.
