Looking for a flood flashlight

Postby scarville on Tue Nov 09, 2010 10:30 pm

I am looking for a flashlight that produces a flood with no well defined hotspot. The outout should be at least 120 lumens with 200 being about ideal. White LED bulbs are a must and smaller overall is better. The switch must be on/off rather than the momemtary (I think that's the right term) type so popular with "tactical" lights. It has to be rugged enough to be carried in a belt holster in the field and easy to swap batteries in the dark.

I'm hoping to get away with $200 or less.

Coast makes a nice light that should fit those criteria. The Lenser P14 has an adjustable beam with a 172 Lumen output. This light uses AA batteries which would be easy to replace in the field and available in many parts of the world.
