    Finally had the opportunity to partner with a company I've bought from for years! Noxx Flashlights is allowing me to sell their flashlights on my website and I wanted to share with the coolest community I know of. I'm able to run a 10% discount for all Noxx products on my website. As always, everything is Free shipping as well. I'd like to ask you at least give them a look on the website, I promise you won't be dissapointed. I have 3 of them. Thank you TW for always supporting Tacoma Nation - I'll have shirts going soon by the way. ! Check them out HERE!

    Here's a picture of the Adventure 2, the one that hooked me.Adventure II.jpg

    The best flashlight I've ever owned was a maglite. The best flashlight I ever used was a streamlight. I'm not sure how they rank among comprobale brands.

    While those have a great reputation, my experience with Noxx and the customer service is next to none in my opinion. These are actually hunting flashlights, I wonder if I should buy those two and do a comparison video?

    Got my son one of those "tactical" flashlights they have those cheesy commercials for, you know, the ones you can freeze and drop and get wet. He took it to Scout camp and dropped it once and it doesn't work that great anymore....tactical my ass.

    EDIT: Just found a link in Amazon ... don't bother with it.

    Yes, if it survives scout camp with the kid, it's worth looking into.

    Actually the one that has really worked great for me is one I bought a few years ago from Northern Tools. Couldn't tell you any more about it, but it's metal not plastic, and the front has ridges so you could break a window (I think) if you needed to.

    M951 Surefire. Not the most compact, not the lightest, not the brightest, but indestructible. Mine has seen close to ten years of abuse in some of the harshest environments and conditions and still works.

    I use a streamlight ProTac HL with 3400mAH 18650 LiIon rechargeables.

    I've put this thing through hell and it keeps coming back for more.

    My agency tested a lot of different flashlights a year and half ago or so. It was left up to officers to decide, and the overwhelming majority voted Fenix. I have a few and couldn’t recommend a better light for durability, and functionality. My life has depended on a flashlight. I use Fenix.

    Small, incredibly bright, recharges quickly, takes easy to find 18650 batteries when charging isn't convenient and has withstood almost 2 years of professional use in a field where it gets heavily used/abused in harsh environments every day. It's been subjected to jet fuel baths, 120+ degree and sub zero weather, 20 foot falls directly on to concrete and even spent a night under 50 feet of water and it still hasn't missed a beat.
