Whether you use it to find your way to an outhouse or to read at night in an alpine hut, a good flashlight is indispensable. Most guys just buy a $10 unit at their local Wal-Mart – and it works great until it doesn't. The pocket-size Surefire P2X Fury Dual Output LED, on the other hand, runs for 46 hours on the low setting, functions as both a standard flashlight at 15 lumens and a searchlight at 500 lumens, and is virtually indestructible.
