    First Review is the SureFire G2X Tactical I snagged this light for 55 dollars online, this light is BRIGHT it puts out 200 lumens with 2 hrs of runtime on 2 CR123s, and is a great defense light it is very durable and the manufacturer says the body is a polymer on the exterior it is but it actually has a metal liner inside and the head is aluminum, one thing to note however is it is not intended for mounting on a weapon as it doesnt have a spring in front of the batteries to prevent damage from recoil, I love this light and it is my everyday carry light I always have it on me some pics I added some paracord just cuz I could,

    Next is the Streamlight Twin Task 1L, this is a handy little light i paid around 30 dollars for it, it runs on 1 C123 it has 2 output modes 1st one uses a xenon bulb to put out 29 lumens 2nd uses 3 LED's and puts out 24 lumens battery life is 1.5 with xenon and 9.5 on the LED's this light is all aluminum and has been pretty durable so farthe lense scratches easily though but for use I keep it in the truck just in case i need one that lasts longer or I forget my Surefire

    I couldnt get any side by side comparisons for the beam, The SureFire washed the Streamlight out too much but heres a side by side pic of the lights
