More than just another keychain-size flashlight, this compact LED light features multiple brightness settings and a clip for hands-free lighting!

Push-button switch lets you scroll through three brightness settings or select the optional emergency strobe

Handy clip feature allows you to attach the light to the bill of a hat, your sleeve, or a backpack strap for hands-free lighting

For unfettered use, pull-away design lets you pop the light out of its holder, leaving the body attached

A bit better than your basic thumb light. This one benifits from a switch that has multiple settings but I find that with only one LED that only the brightest setting works for me.

The clip is a nice touch for us climbers, attach it to a small biber on the back of your harness on long trad climbs and you won't ever have to worry about not having an emergency light source.

Again I would not recommend this as your sole source of light on a mountaineering trip. Good for around the camp and in the tent but you won't be doing any route finding or climbing with it.
