Im a product design student looking to create products related to emergency services especially the fire department. my current task is to redesign the right angle flashlight. common examples are the Streamlight Survivor and the Pelican Little Ed.

my question to all of you is:
what makes you carry a personal light?
what brand/model?
what are the strengths?
what are the weaknesses?
what would you like to see incorperated into a new light?

thanks for your cooperation and time.
