I have been slack in my CPF reading, especially the LED lights section. Imagine my surprise when I was perusing it today and saw that Costco is selling a CREE flashlight called the Leatherman Monarch. Reviews seem positive, especially with the light at $30 and available to the masses. Has anyone seen these in their store? Judging by the locations of the CPF posters, it is widely available in CA. I swing by the tool/flashlight aisle every time I visit Costco, and have never seen the Monarch there.

Oh, it also focuses! A CREE that focuses for $30 combined with Costco’s return policy seems like an awesome deal.
