For walking, which is all you can do now, I just like to use any LED light that has about 30 to 50 of the tiny LED bulbs. There's basicly two kinds of LED bulbs, there's the tiny ones which are configured in clusters of anywhere from about 4 in the mini lights on up to about 100 in the big lights. Then there's the big LED bulbs which are super bright and usually rated in watts, like 3 to 6 watts each LED, and those lights are usually configured in clusters of 1 to 3 LED bulbs per light. Those lights I usually find to be too contrasty for my liking so as I said I like the lights with the many(30 to 50) tiny LED bulbs since they throw a softer, less contrasty light with fewer shadows and hot spots.

The only problem with the tiny bulb lights is that they don't shine very far so I always carry a backup light that shines far. For my far shining backup light I use any kind of small Halogen light, Fenix makes some good ones and Cabella's even has a good generic one. They are useful for shining the upper portions of tall cuts and for scanning the general terrain ahead.
