As a result I decided to look around for a replacement. I was originally overwhelmed by all the products on the market. I was strapped for cash and didn't really want to spend a lot of money on a headlight, since my time riding at night is limited anyways. So I decided to look at some lower cost tactical flashlights with bicycle mounts.
Wow, I was really surprised at how many are actually on the market. One thing I knew for sure was that I wanted something bright. After owning a few other, which were not very bright I began to get frustrated when I really needed to see where I was going at night.
As I scoured the internet looking for different lights and reading reviews I started getting exhausted. I'm the type of person that when I plan to purchase something I do extensive research to the point most people would go insane. I enjoy doing that sort of stuff, so for me its great.
I was very hesitant due to the low cost, but I figured why not get a few different ones to try out. After all they for the price of a handful of them I could get one more expensive light. At least if I have several other people in my family can use them and I can put them in different rooms of the house for emergency purposes.
When my packages arrived and I opened them I was pleasantly surprised at the quality for such an inexpensive item. It just goes to show competition is good for the market. It forces companies to build better quality products for lower cost. Its a win/win for the consumer in this situation.
The only issue I had was the bicycle mount, which came with one of the lights didn't fit my fat handle bars. However, I was not concerned because one of the other mounts fit the bike and both flashlights. Now I was even more excited because I have the option of which light I want to bring. The lights I have are two different sizes. My suggestion is to get something between 300-500 lumens unless it is adjustable.
My favorite pick is below. Its small, light weight and easily fits in my pack. It has multiple modes and the beam width can be adjusted to your liking. It even fits my fat handlebars. This one even comes with a taillight. Its as durable as other light's I've used, but may not be as durable as the really hight end bicycle light setups. For the price and quality of this item I highly recommend it. It's definitely hard to go wrong with this price.
