I use a surefire, it's expensive, but it's the best flashlight I've ever come across.

This is one of the baddest lights I've ever seen. It threw more light than my 5 cell (D batteries) LED Maglite. A friend of mine is also into flashlights and this was his choice...

Olight M20 Warrior PREMIUM Tactical LED Flashlight w. Cree R2 - 250 Lumens!

If you go with this one, make sure you order the optional smooth reflector.

I use a lensar LED flashlight. It is small, takes 3 AAA batteries. It's great for those times when both hands are required and no one is available to hold the light. I always just stick it in the side of my mouth like a cigar. It is not like most LED lights that have a tone of useless bulbs. This one only has 1 bulb and incorporates a projector lens to amplify and clean of the beam. It shines very far and very bright.

I got mine from home depot for 40 bucks, Mine does not have an adjustable beam, but they have another model that does for a few bucks more.

I'll have to run out to the truck to get the model number for you.

ok, its an LED Lenser flashlight. it takes 3 AA batteries, but has no model number. I checked their website here: LED Lenser High Performance | Tactical Use Lights | LED Flashlights | Police Equipment but I don't see the exact one there. the closest in looks is the T7, but mine is only 90 lumens or so with incredible range. So far battery life has been great. It came with three batteries installed and an extra three batteries in the packaging.

highly recommended

Edit: It comes with nylon holster and carabiner for attaching to belt loops, which i find extremely useful when wearing gloves. Its a pain trying to reach into my pocket for a smallish flashlight with gloves on. The case is water resistant with o-ring seals.
