So I manage to loose about 3-5 flashlights a year while taping.. don't know how, don't know when.. usually after packing up it'll be left on the floor or something.  Curious what y'all use in the field...

My dad works as a maintenance guy for a local corporation and turned me on to these Pelican lights they have there that he can get me for "free".. I think they probably retail for like $12 at hardware stores.. Seems pretty damn unbreakable to me, and cheap enough to loose!  Plus you can get it in blaze orange for better visibility  ;D

Gotta love the space age polycarbonate resin. I'm wondering when the marketing geniuses who use the phrase "space age" will realize that the space age began over forty years ago? ;)

You can buy more replacement bulbs too. Rat Shack used to sell them.

I got this as a gift, but it's the best light I've ever used:

It is amazingly bright (said you can see it up to a mile away), and the battery lasts forever...

I have to agree...Micsupply sent me one of these:

I have had it more than a year with great results...so small the thing takes up no room in the bag as well

In Canada, Home Depot has these little flying saucer LED lights like the last one for $5.  I find them really bright though...I prefer my mini mag lite with a good worn out battery.  A fresh one draws too much attention!

Yeah, cuz a 15 foot pole is very inconspicuous. ;)
