My favorite camp light and a recent addition to my packing list is the HP550 flashlight by Coast. The HP550 is essentially a flashlight on steroids. Not only is it heavy duty enough to become a weapon if I ever need one, it is also wicked powerful, intensely bright and has a spotlight. You read that right… A freaking spotlight! AND it is an LED, and requires no bulbs. Having a spotlight is a huge feature, especially for wilderness travelers, because often is a bear is going to snoop around your camp, it will be at night, but typically only if they smell something tasty, like food or perfumed items.
Now, to be clear, a flashlight isn’t my only light source when I camp and venture far from civilization, but it is my favorite and my ultimate go-to. When I camp now-a-days, I always have a high-powered lantern, headlamp, phone, along with the HP550 flashlight.
