I've used Surefire lights for years, mostly the 6P and G2 models. While these models are lightweight, waterproof, and reliable I recently decided that they were a tad long for an every day carry light. After searching online, I found that Amazon had the best buy for a lot less than MSRP so I settled on the Surefire E1B Backup.

At 4 inches long, it is long enough to easily use with one hand (and as a contact weapon) without being too long to carry in a pocket. The double clip can attach this light to a pants pocket like a lock blade knife or can be pressed into a redneck headlamp in a pinch by sliding it onto the bill of a ball cap.

This light has two levels of brightness. Click once and you have a bright 110 lumens (the newer model has about 220 lumens). Click again and you have 5 lumens. 5 lumens is what I use mostly because it doesn't ruin my night vision. You can click the tailcap for the light to stay on or you can press lightly for momentary on. It uses a single CR123 battery.

I've carried this with me every day since purchasing it and it has very quickly become my most used flashlight around the homestead and at work.

Surefire makes great lights and once you get ahold of the E1B you'll have a light you can depend on.

This is a super-wonderful flashlight which i bought to backup my defender on my everyday briefcase/backpack/carryon. It is so well performing that it becomes my primary flashlight for when the space is very limited on myself or even in my case. I definitely love this little giant. It pours lumens out of the front and another great feature is the low setting. It only goes on 5 lumens provided you don't need all the power. Perfect for bedside time when you don't want to light up the entire room.

I admit that I bought this based on the many 5-star reviews. Upon receiving it, however, I wish I had just bought another Fenix LD-20. I stood outside with the Fenix in one hand the Surefire in the other. The Fenix cast the much longer, brighter light. In fact, I find that I never use the Surefire's 'low' setting because the light is too fuzzy and weak to bother with it. At $50 the Fenix cost half as much, had a carrying case, lanyard and is rechargeable (you can buy an optional car-charger kit, too). I have to assume that the Surefire spends alot on marketing and freebies to the military/police groups. I ended up keeping the Surefire, however, because I like that it is short and does not have as many (anti-roll?) angles as the Fenix so it is comfortable to carry around in the pocket. Now I just need to find a shorter Fenix (the Fenix LD20 is longer but has a thinner diameter).
