The EDC series are also suitable for camping and hiking. There are many reasons to get a good flashlight when camping and hiking. You need to consider the multiple brightness level, beam distance, run time and waterproof. The moonlight mode of around 3 lumens is good for night waking up. A low light of 20 lumens is efficient when reading a book in the tent. High brightness of 1000 lumens can be used in preparing or other activities. The run time is also another point to consider.
