Last January, my E1L Outdoorsman was lost in a near white-out snowstorm. A week later, I was using a tempered steel shovel to remove an eight-inch-thick ice dam from a gutter by my sidewalk. I found what I first thought was a garden-hose connector looming in the ice. I drove the point of the shovel into the end to pry it loose. When it came out, much to my surprise, it turned out to be the flashlight I'd given up on ever seeing again. I was even more surprised that worked perfectly. I think this SureFire is the toughest light I've ever owned.
