Robust, High Power (3,000+ lumen) Flashlight, Balanced Flood & Throw, Neutral White

Howdy y'all. I am on the lookout for a new high power light somewhat similar to the Thrunite TN35 I lost. Budget is flexible as long as the price is commensurate with what you'd be getting. General use case is rough trail hiking, nighttime boating (to identify shoreline in an emergency), and lighting up open areas of land in rural areas.

I am looking for something that is:
  1. At least somewhere around 3,000 lumens, even better if it has more.
  2. Has a good balance between flood and throw, which I guess is closest to a "wide throw" beam profile.
  3. Is available in neutral white with a good CRI.
  4. Preferably uses 18650 batteries.
  5. Strong/durable build quality suitable for outdoor usage out in the elements.
  6. Relatively ergonomic.
  7. Something that has a more aesthetically pleasing shape than just a fat, nearly perfect cylinder. I very much dislike the shape of flashlights like the Thrunite TN36. So many lights look like that these days....
  8. No automatic step-down in power on the maximum setting.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions :cool:
