Looking for good NVG/night flying flashlight

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations?  Ideally looking for something that is dual output, white/bright for walk arounds but also can use in the cockpit to augment / backup those little NVG fingerlights.  Preferably green and fairly dim etc...

I was looking at the new surefire aviator, but I had the old one and it was way too bright to use in the cockpit.  Anyone using something they like?

I got issued the Phantom at my first unit. It’s not the prettiest looking or slimming but it works great. It has a dimmable white, NVG green, and IR light.

I'll second this.

I have been issued this light and it works well...even after your crew chief leans out the window and drops it on the pavement from a 150 ft hover...

Bump - if anyone else is looking for a good night flashlight.  Just used a Surefire Kroma Milspec for the past few months and it is expensive but awesome.  Red / Green / Blue / IR / White and good levels for NVG cockpit usage.  Highly recommend.  Super tough and lightweight as well.  Tried to get the Phantom (above) but ran into issues being overseas.
