Default favorite flashlight or lantern

What is your favorite lantern? I am tired of these chip chinese flashlights where the lamp dies very fast.

I want to buy a good one, but can not decide on the brand.

Please advice..
thanks

Headlamps. Rapala makes some good ones for under $30. Lanterns are bulky and require carrying spare propane bottles.

I coulda swore we just got some flashlight SPAM a couple months ago.

Pro tip:

If you're gonna try to pass off spam as a legit post, you might wanna drop the "u" from favourite.

Like ninja said, it's hard to beat a good headlamp. They have different features like different colored lights for night fishing, uv lights for inducing glow, etc. so figure out what exactly you want out of it and go for it!

Well, decided not to spend money on expensive flashlights... and LED bulb for my lantern.
So, I will try this headlamp. https://www.mrosupply.com/lighting/e...335_6003_nebo/
I hope it will not be too bright.

wallworld has the if you dont wanna wait for shipping.

although i hate wallyworld ones. they usually only last half a dozen trips or so before something breaks or they drop and break. i almost wouldnt mind paying like 75 for one thats a bit more tough. i also prefer the headlights with the strap that goes over the top of the head as well. they seem to stay on better than the single around the head and ears strap.
