Icon’s Link is a compact 1-AA LED flashlight that features a built-in carabiner clip for easy stowage. It’s built with an aluminum body, power-regulated LED, total internal reflection lens for a more focused beam, 2 light output levels, and a clickie tailcap switch.
The Link is o-ring sealed and waterproof down to one meter for 30 minutes, so it can handle most weather conditions with ease.

Warning: once you purchase one Icon light, you’re going to want more! They’re very well made, especially given their relatively low prices.
Considering the carabiner, it looks like this is intended for usage as both an EDC light (it screams, “put me on a belt loop”) or as a camping flashlight (clipped to the various bits of adjustment webbing on most camping bags).
I ordered one and tried carrying it around for a day on a belt loop. Because the clip is built onto the flashlight, it was a little too rigid for comfort when driving around.
If I carry it on me in the future, it will either be clipped to a bag or the side of a pocket. Performance-wise, I am definitely liking the Link, no buyer’s remorse here!
Actually, it might be a good thing that it’s rigid on the belt loop—if it sits just right it could sit at a close enough to proper angle (on certain widths of belt loops) to be used hands free when carrying things.
