Just wanted to thank everyone for recommending the Fenix L2D-Q5. I used it on my helmet as a backup last night while out running my 3 dogs on a sled, and it works SUPER. Always nice to see if that's a deer, elk, or a cougar ahead of us while out in the middle of absolute nowhere....
I've posted on a sled dog board about the flashlight and the bulb itself since this may be an item of interest to other mushers. Someone asked about heat sinking these Q5s: do they generate more heat than the Luxeon bulbs, less, or about the same? He was referencing the huge heat sink in the Princeton Tec Apex headlamp as comparison.
I had no idea about the relative heat generation between these bulbs so I volunteered to ask you fine mtbr experts and report back.
