Neglected the boss on this one but I still love it. Mainly just used the malkoff and Aviator. Did search out with the modlight a few times on night hikes though.

I love modlite and have rocked it for many years at work. However for camping I'd say it's a terrible choice, considering it's lack of versatility.
It only has one mode, MAX...Gives you about an hour of light on a cell, and that's all. When I'm camping I very rarely need crazy amount of throw or output.

I'll give it a pass if you just wanted to get out there and stretch its legs and see what it could do! Which sounds to be the case by what you wrote under the photo!... But for a 1 cell 18650 with camping as it's intended purpose... There are page fulls of lights that would have been better suited as I'm sure you are well aware.

Hope you had fun though!

You are correct. I did not rely solely on the modlite. We hiked at night using our headlamps and I would occasionally pop the modlite on to see further ahead and around

MDC HA 4000K. I recognize your name from reddit. Mine is a random one over there but picked that one up after a Convo with you about it 🤙
Haha nice! Yeah I am no longer on Reddit. I got a permanent ban for speaking the truth on a topic in r/EDC. Reddit and those mods can suck it.

If I were to go camping for the weekend, my 4 light pack out would probably look like this.

My grandson likes that triple 3C cell defiant more than any other.
I had him 3D print a spare 18650 carrier, and spacer to convert the 3C into a light that runs on a single 18650, and it carries a spare with it.

I'd probably bring a spare Convoy S2+, just because.

Very solid choices. I brought 2 thyrm vaults full of batteries, 2 power banks and a solar panel. Ended up not needing any of them though lol. Between the camp fire, lanterns, and headlamps there wasn't much use for any of the 4 flashlights I chose other than the Aviator and BOSS providing red light in the tent in the middle of the night
