The debate is still going on about who makes the best single AAA battery flashlight for lightweight backpackers - Arc or Fenix? Fenix has a new version of their L0D available August 20, the Fenix L0D RB80 which uses the Luxeon Rebel LED. Circuitry is unchanged and run time is about the same as the previous version but it has more output - 60 lumens in the bright mode as opposed to 50 lumens for the Cree 7090 XR-E LED.

I live and do a lot of my backpacking in the desert, but I LOVE the mountains of the west! I also get out to the east coast occasionally to backpack.
