Which Light For $Billion Dollar Jewelry Heist?

I'm thinking a headlamp would be more convenient (looks like he had to swing the axe or hammer while holding the light).

What would you take?

For a billion dollar jewelry heist, I would bring two lights: a workhorse budget light for doing the nitty gritty job, and a trit encrusted titanium jewelry light for emergency backup. 

Normal people walk around with big dogs. They look normal. I walk around with big flashlights. My flashlights have bitten less people then Teds' dog.

If I were to do it again I would take IR headlamp + thrower together with matching goggles.

As you have to schlepp the loot on the way out, I would choose a light that self-destructs. Like an Imalent. Leaving no evidence. Maybe it burns the whole place down. Even less evidence.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

For this kind of job I would take an $8 ebay chinese 5,000lm CREE zoomie and leave it on the scene.

Upon further investigation they would realize there is no way it was me. Big Smile

I'd take a Fenix Headlamp and a Surefire p60. You wouldn't want to risk your light breaking down during such high stress situations like this . why would anyone risk their lives with budget junk lights ..

"Over spend ...on lights you must depend "

 After the heist I'd buy a big house where we both could live
