I thought I'd share what I use for flashlights.
All my gear takes AA batteries, radios, GPS, flashlight etc. This way I only have to take one kind of battery, and if I run out of batteries I can rob peter to pay paul (steal from my flashlight to feed my GPS).
I use the Gerber Infinity Ultra Handy Torch.
I got mine for 20 bucks in 2005, and it still works great. You can pick up these kind of cheap flashlights at gas stations too. They're barely bigger than a AA and give you enough light to get around in the dark.
Around Christmas I was at home depot and they had aluminum single LED flashlights that work on a single AA battery for A DOLLAR each. I bought fifteen. Should have got 20.
Also, I think what people don't carry is pretty interesting. I used to carry a hatchet or folding saw, but I don't any more. They are too much of a PITA for getting wood (just look further away from camp). They could be useful for clearing trail but I've found I can usually ride around whatever is blocking the road/trail. So it gets left at home.
