Light in the Dark Woods

Check out these five different light options for use in the field, from a headlamp to a lantern, recommended straight from the pages of American Hunter magazine.

The Ranger XP headlamp is handier than a third hand with its four modes including a high-power center beam, green light for stealthy woods walking, red light and strobe. ($24)

By now you’ve heard of SureFire, the firm that started the high-end flashlight craze. The E2L Outdoorsman is a great all-around choice with its dual-intensity LED beam and Navy SEAL-tough  construction. It's powered by two CR123A batteries. Pocket clip keeps it handy. ($255)

TerraLUX’s TT-3 is a two-AA battery LED unit that has a dual-button system so you can quickly select the intensity setting and strobe mode. It’s plenty for lighting up the woods or the eyes of a bad guy. Holster and lanyard included. ($109)

Browning's Blackout features 725 lumens of blinding LED light. Three modes—high, low and strobe—are powered by three CR123A batteries. It’s also waterproof to 1 meter. ($204)

The Siege LED lantern from Streamlight is waterproof, floats and is small enough to hang just about anywhere. Three C batteries deliver a large halo of light for up to 12 days. Integral clips and stand allow placement anywhere. ($60)
