I generally don't use one in the woods, but I carry one at work and have been using a "Coast LED Lenser" you get at Lowes.5 bluish leds and 1 red..Its about the size of a roll of quarters and believe me is really holding up well to daily use....

The Streamlight Propolymer Luxeon lights are good. I have a 4aa size that probably gets more use at home than any other light. I use rechargeable aa batts and it works great.

There are MUCH brighter LED lights if you don't mind spending more $$. The Pelican 7060 is almost too bright but it's in the $100 range.

The Fenix lights are neat designs and small and bright but they're kinda pricey too.

Battery Junction sells lots of import Cree LED based lights: I have the Lumapower M1 that they sell and run it on an 18650 rechargeable battery.

There are literally hundreds of great LED flashights out there these days and new ones popping up all the time. For current info, check out the candlepower forums

I use the Spot headlamp made by Black Diamond. It runs off 3 AAA's and is the brightest little booger I've used, although you it does have different brightness modes. This thing even has a 3 year warranty. It's a little pricey at $60 and I was hesitant on the purchase, but a buddy of mine who is a hardcore backpacker assured me that it was the absolute best in headlamps and I'm very glad that I purchased this thing.
it's a long way to the top if ya wanna rock 'n' roll

I don't know but there may be a better use for our hunting dollars than a high priced flash light.
