The HDS Systems (formerly Ra Lights) EDC Tactical flashlights are some incredibly tough little illumination tools featuring burly bodies, thick stainless steel bezels, hardened lenses, customizable interfaces, and a whole lot of other premium features. HDS is still a small US company, so you can call and talk to the owner who is also the designer, customer support, and pretty much everything else for the company. The lights have four different modes, all of which can be programmed to a dizzying array of options. The Tactical versions have black bezels and clips and have a protruding switch that keeps them from tail standing but makes then easier to activate in return. They also have momentary activation programmed in by default, which is something that I like to have over the default Executive programming.
