    What Kind of Flashlight Do You Use?

    My brother in law has a bit of a flashlight obsession and it's rubbed off a bit on me. He got me a Streamlight lantern for Christmas this past year and I love it but it's a bit heavy for backpacking. Do you have a specific flashlight or lantern that you've found to be a great mix of brightness and lightweight?

    One with batteries? Never put much thought behind it.

    most of the time I use a headlamp. I've got several, and I find them a heck of a lot easier to use then a flashlight for just about everything.

    I don't have any recommendations though, mine are all old.

    I got a BD headlamp, no idea model#. Got it on sale for $29 seems like a great deal.

    A newfound (for me) necessity for fishing at night.

    Black Diamond Spot. I've had many and this one is worth the extra $. Granted, I got mine as an EMS return for $15.

    +1 on the BD headlamp. It's great for using the one-holer in the dark, cooking over the grille in the dark and fixing plumbing under the sink. Used it to extract ticks, look for lice and ambush moose. It's really small, takes 2 AAA which makes it really lightweight and I haven't broken it yet. I led a group of 12 people out of the woods with this headlamp, on a washed out trail with no blazes. Don't ask....
