    I know this was posted on ARF, didn't see it here.

    Costco has a 2 pack of flashlights.

    - CREE LED's
    - 160 Lumens
    - Runs on (3) AAA batteries
    - High/Low/Strobe Mode
    - Click on/off tail cap
    - Front/rear caps are bezzled (aka sharp)
    - Water/shock resistant.
    - Led tail cap button to show low battery.

    I haven't put them through the tests to compare to my Streamlight or Surefire, but man for $10 bucks for a 160 lumen light....I think it's a heck of a deal.

    i've just gotten the pair and as my first tactical flashlights they seem like an amazing deal for 10 dollars a light.

    I couldn't find it on the website. I think it's a local only deal. But lots of members on ARF stated they found them at most costcos. Here's a link to the info...but doesn't appear you can buy them online.

    I can try to get some beam shot comparisons tomorrow.

    Dumb me, I tore my MCL and possibly miniscus today in my left knee...so I'm lounging on the couch and can't walk.

    I got the flashlights at Costco while waiting for my vicodin prescription.

    China is capitalist...but back to the subject you can easily get a high quality Streamlight Scorpion LED for under $50 and its American made.

    The Americans working at Streamlight would like you to!!

    But perhaps this Costco set is made in USA.

    And you can get a Surefire G2 for $30-35.

    But in my world, $10 doesn't equal $30 or $50 or $100.

    Love my wife to death, but I'm not going to give her my 6P or G2 LED for purse/car carry knowing her track record or items "running away" from her :rofl:

    Nope the only 3AAA light made in the USA is a Maglite and it cost much more than that.

    What setting? How many hours per set?

    At least on paper it's better than my Surefire 6P incan, 120 lumens @ 20 minutes.

    China has been known to make good flashlight but this isn't one of them.
