Looking for a good EDC flashlight for my work bag.

I was interested in the County Comm Maratac Extreme light, but they are sold out and will not be producing more. Bummer.


So - this is what I am looking for:



LED pruduced by a major supplier such (Cree, Inova, etc)

Adjustable high and low mode - I don't need 7 modes and a flasher

Long battery life - say at least 4 hours on high and 40 hours on low

takes AA bats

water resistant - water proof is nice, but I'm not swimmin with this one

Good light production rating - say at least 80 to 100 lumens on high - not a tactical light by any stretch

durable materials - polymer is ok

an attachment to make it into a lamp would be nice




Anyone in the yard have experience with something that works ??

County Comm has the AA and the AAA. I am not sure about the output on the 3a but I have carried one for WELL over a year and really like it.

You're saying they are not going to make the aa any more?

There is another one the has gotten really good reviews and some of the Dawgs here carry them. It starts with an L and the word reminds me of leica but it is NOT a camera lens!

Fenix LD20 would be a good choice, maybe a few more options than high-low-off, but still a good light.

Take a look at 4Sevens flashlights. I'm looking at a quark. I'll add a clicky tail, a deep carry clip and call it good. I've carried the surefire back-up for years and it's been a great dependable light. I don't need another small light, but I'd like to try something new.

Have a couple of Surefire G2's that have served me well. I would like to find one that doesn't use batteries so fast.
