One of the crucial tools needed in an EDC, BOB, GHB or 72 Hour Kit is a good flashlight.  I recently purchased a FordEx Group 300lm Mini Cree Led Flashlight.  I purchased the flashlight through amazon for $4.20 and received free shipping as part of my total purchase.

So far I am amazed at the quality and operability of this little light.  It is bright and has what they call an adjustable focus zoom which allows you to adjust from a flood to more narrow beam.  The flashlight only requires one AA battery and operates via a tail/thumb push button.  With one full push of the button the light turns on to full brightness.  A second slight push dims the brightness and a third light push produces a strobe effect.  The order may vary depending on which cycle you are currently on when you fully depress the button to to power off.  Another nice feature is that this flashlight includes an installed belt clip.
