    Thanks for noticing! Its a Surefire A2 LED Aviator. It has low output red LEDs when you partially depress the tailcap for completing small tasks while still leaving your eyes adjusted to darkness. Then, when you press the tailcap fully it has a bright white LED output like other flashlights. I can't say enough about how much I love this light. It is with me at all times. It is a bit pricey, but I was lucky enough to find an Ebay seller a while back that had quite a few of them at auction going in the $100 range, so I scooped a few up while I could. Plus, having the Surefire name to back it up, I know they will be with me for a lifetime. Yes, in the time since this light has came out there are now smaller brighter less expensive lights, but this one is the ultimate EDC light in my opinion.

    I wrote about it in one of the recent flashlight threads. The only reason I didn't mention it in your flashlight thread was because it didn't meet your battery requirements.

    you could look at the g100 in my sig. its simple but a pretty nice watch. its ana digi and has an extra time zone and alarm and a stopwatch. the dial is luminous and also has a light for the lcd. its cheap and a nice watch overall and not large

    i couldnt afford an a2 new or old version so i got the next best thing maybe. this is actually a really nice little light it is made from stainless steel takes one triple a battery and goes 15 lumens for 5 hours or .5 lumens for 14 hours if you believe the claims. it is floody with no reflector so the beam is really smooth with no halo or artifacts but an a2 is still on my list when i get some extra bucks
