I was at wal-mart today picking up oil and stuff for the vehicles and decided to stop by the sporting goods on the way out.
I've been looking around for a decent light to carry on the bug out vests I've been putting together for myself and my wife.
Well I decided to pick up one of these (though both of ours are in black)12.00 dollars a piece.:

The case for it leaves a little something to be desired it is PVC and has a sheen to it. I plan on giving it a very light coat of flat black or OD green just to take out the shine and coloring in the Garrity letters with a sharpie both on the Light itself and on the case.
As you can see it's pretty small yet packs quite a punch for an LED light
A nice large rubber button easy to push and dosen't feel like it will wear though anytime soon:
Both ends have o-ring seals similar to Mag-Lights. The LED looks easy to replace as it looks like it just plugs in like a regular incandecnt bulb. Though the package claims this will practically not be necessary and that it should run 120 hrs on a set of three (3) AAA batts.
The tube appears as though it is the same thickness as a mini-mag tube but I don't know if I would run this one over with my truck as it dosen't feel as heavy. Note it has o-rings on both ends.
The battery holder is very easy to load and insert batteries into. I personally like this feature some may not.
All of it layed out. The diffrent colored lenses just snap to the top of the light.
Pretty good light at a VERY good price.
Very Bright by my experiences with LED lights.
Standard AAA batts. you can find anywhere.
Diffrent color lenses for various conditions
Push button on the end (this is a pro for me some may like the buttons to be on top)
Did I mention it was cheap???
Some people may not like cheap
Nothing holds the lenses down so if you bump into them while they are on the light they may pop off.
LED beam is bright but anything outside of the "circle" is still pitch dark unlike Incandecnt (SP?) lights that are bright in the center yet you still get some light on the outside edges.
Pouch is cheap PVC nylon stuff that is noisy and shiny.
Push button has no "temp on" position. THe light is either on or off.
Paint on the tube is glossy nothing a little bit of paint wouldn't fix.
Hope this is helpfull to someone.
