The YLP Sherp S15 meets all your requirements, might be worth a look.

Thank you so much for recommending this light!
It looks like a great light.
I’m not sure if the 200LM side light will be bright enough for my needs.
However I found another light on their site that I am seriously considering as well.

We plan to do some caving in the spring and I really think this light would be awesome for that plus fill my side light needs:

Thanks again!

Sunwayman c22c

Words can be broken,
so can bones.

The Sunwayman c22c does look like a nice light as well!
I like that it’s priced way less than the YLP Sherp S15!

The side light is rated at 175Lumens and I just don’t have enough knowledge to know if that will be bright enough for my needs.

I found a review of the c22c here:

Thanks for your recommendation!

“Two is one, one is none.”

Especially being down deep with the Lizard People, don’t be shy about having more’n one light.

A good headlamp would be a welcome addition, too.

Oh yeh, just for s&g, get a WK30. Red for preserving low-light vision, and UV to watching things fluoresce. The ’351 gives some great creamy-white light, and the battery’ll last forever underground.

LOL!

When caving we’ll all have at least 1 extra hand held light.

I originally made this post looking for a light for work but I really liked that YLP Panda 3.0 and thought it would fit my work needs as well.

I like that the WK30 has UV and White together. I have another work task that would benefit from this.

Thanks!

No worries.

Iggy agrees, too.
