Was a surefire guy for a decade until I noticed they are falling behind in the lumen race as well as the feature and function race compared to Fenix and Nitecore.

Dollar for Dollar those are far better value IMO. Got several Fenixes and my first one (PD-22) is still going strong after 7 years of abuse

I have a nice streamlight camping light. I bought it for the hurricane actually.

I also have a few smaller Nitecore (?) maybe flashlights. Or some $30 amazon flashlight. It's incredible how bright they are nowadays compared to when I was a kid and we had the huge D-cell maglights.

I agree. One can even find many cheap options as well and they work just fine. I bought a LED Headlamp light online under $15 dollar and i must say it does its job

I use a $4 AA from Dollar General. You can easily swap out the batteries in pitch black.
It's bullet proof.
The new led teck is amazing. $30 for a solar charger. Further, I'm hooked on skiing w/ a backpack, had some serious falls this year (ice) and the packs really help break the fall.

Here's a trail in South Concord, NH. Almost in Bow. The whole area is the site of old quarries. Not granite, this is the good stuff.
It's behind Flanigans South Ender store.

I use Imalent MS18, it's one of the most powerful flashlight. I often buy stuff for sports and my hobbies at everest. There are different outdoor gear, plus they are giving back to the organizations and invest in philanthropic programs https://www.everest.com/how-we-give-back .
