It's pretty clear Mag industries and Surefire are here to stay. Pelican and Streamlight are safe bets too.

I really like some of Arcs products, but being a relatively new company, with a niche product, I wonder if they will still be around in 10 years for warranty service?

$148.00 is alot to spend on a flashlight made by a company that might not exist in a couple years.

[url]www.arcflashlight.com[/url] I've said this here before: I think Arc products are some of the best kept secrets in illumination tools. I used to EDC one of my many SureFires, but now it's an Arc LSH-P. My wife liked it so much I got her an LSL-P. I also have their AAA model; it kicks the $h1t out of a Mag Solitaire & has a permanent place on my keyring. The owner & chief designer/engineer, Peter Gransee, is a regular poster on [url]www.candlepowerforums.com[/url] & is working on several new & improved torches to add to his line. It seems his company has built quite the clientele basis in recent months, & I'd be willing to bet those who own any of his products would wholeheartedly agree. The LSH-P is an awesome light! I lurked on CPF for awhile & kept hearing how great it was (by a bunch of folks who live & breathe flashlights like we do ARs) & wondered how something so small could be that great. I decided to try one myself & was impressed! The quality of their LS line is nothing short of exceptional, & the high dome emitters put any E1e to shame, especially if it's utilizing the KL1 LED head. This is a bright, WHITE light. The premium models are hand selected Luxeon Star LEDs, & aren't slightly blue or purple or green (like the SF KL1s are.) I can assure you you won't be disappointed in anything Arc makes.

I took the plunge and bought a few of their lights. Arc LSH-P, AAA-LE, & AA Second. Very impressive LED lights. Arcs customer service is amazing too. $5.00 shipping. I placed the orders on Sunday evening and had the lights monday afternoon!

Over at CPF you will find a very satisfied group of Arc owners. I am a very satisfied owner as well, with several of the AAA's and one LS. I used to carry a SF E1, but now it's the ARC LSH-S. The light output of this little beast beats the SF Kl1, and it's much smaller. Plus, the company sells a $25 addition which lets it use two AA cells instead of 123 lithiums. Also, just because a company is present doesn't mean it will have good customer service. :) If the owner keeps making innovative products, Arc will be here to stay, and will likely motiviate the other companies to make better products, rather than suing competitors.
