re: Flashlights
What's your main use?

The cree leds on amazon are really, really bright and at that budget you could buy a dozen. Don't let the low price fool you, I have several and the light is durable and brighter than I really need to walk to and from the stand.

In and out of the woods and tracking. Also for using in boat for setting up duck hunting, without having to use spotlight.

For $60, I'd get a surefire G2X LE. That's only if you're ok with cr123 batteries.

For aa batteries, I'd get a nitecore.

re: Flashlights
I have a Thrunite TN4A. It's small but very sturdy and well built. It puts out unbelievable light in turbo mode. Definitely lights up the woods it you need it to. Runs on 4 AA batteries and puts out up to 1150 lumen. IMO can't beat it for $50.

Look at fenix lights. Smallest and brightest around. Waterproofing that streamlight and surefire can't compete with. I carry their pd32 in my pocket every day and at 900 lumens it's awesome.

I love all their products. Super durable and reliable and very high output for their size. I have one of their Microstream pocket lights as part of my every day carry. I use it all the time. Runs on a single AAA battery and haven't had to change it in a year.

I bought that one earlier this year. I had a gift card to spend and have been pleased with it. It has a high/low option and is much brighter than my old LED. It only uses AAA batteries and I'm still on my first set.

A Microstream with a 10440 lithium battery is pretty unbelievable for it's size. I just put an alkaline in it for EDC though.

Another vote for thrunite. Also have the tn4a and with eneloop batteries it'll last a long time.

re: Flashlights
I bought one of those cheap Chinese headlights off of Amazon the other day after somebody on here recommended it. I'm not sure how long it will hold up, but it's the brightest headlight I've ever seen, and it only cost $25.

Mine came with a regular alkaline AAA but I swapped it for an Energizer lithium AAA. I don't know if the battery will ever fully drain - I use the thing all the time and it hasn't lost any intensity. Love it.

I bought a Stanley FatMax (up to 2200 lumens...who really knows) last week and it is pretty good for the price ($40)

Thrunite TN12

Runs on a single 18650 and shoots out 1100 lumens with an impressive spill and throw.

re: Flashlights
You need a headlamp if you are tracking and setting up decoys. You've got 2 choices - a name brand or a cheap CREE headlamp from Amazon with rechargeable 18650 batteries.

The cheap ones can be had for $12-20. I have one and use it often. I like the 18650 batteries.

A good headlamp with AAA batteries is another option, and some come with red/blue/green lenses for night vision and tracking. I keep these in all vehicles and bedside table.

I'm sure all the others listed here are great but you can buy 1200 lumen cree bulbed lights on Ebay for $18 a half dozen.

They work well and are brighter that car headlights
